    Ubben voted us 9th in pre-season

    How I voted: Big 12 preseason poll - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    Can't really disagree with anything he says.

    9th.

    9. Iowa State: The battle for the last bowl spot or two is going to be absolutely brutal. Iowa State, Baylor and Texas Tech can beat anyone in the league, but I'm not sure about either team's depth to win more than seven games. Thus, it's a race to six games, but simple math means at least one of those three teams won't be making the postseason. We'll see who it is. Iowa State's got the least dangerous offense and the worst situation at quarterback. Points will get you a long way in this conference. Iowa State doesn't score enough of them.

    Not sure how Lunt and Florence have proven more without baseless predictions.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    I can't wait for Shontrelle, White, and Woody to all prove this wrong. For QB it isn't a bad situation but it isn't good either. We have two QBs on the roster capable of winning big games. I feel a whole lot better about this years QB situation compared to last years.


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Re: Ubben voted us 8th in pre-season

    Ya, Tech fans were ******** that we were pre-ranked 8th, and he responded with "I don't disagree, I had you guys above Iowa State."

    Yes, because Rhoads doesn't know how to stop the Raiders.

    For anyone keeping track, in the Rhoads vs. Texas Tech series, Iowa State is winning 93-45.

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Ubben voted us 8th in pre-season

    I'm going to say it, and you guys can save this if I'm wrong....

    No way does Texas finish 5th in conference this year and finish worse than West Virginia. None. I don't care how good that offense was in the Big East and how good Geno Smith is, that Texas defense is going to harass him all day like he's never seen before. And TCU ahead of Texas? What is Ubben thinking? Won't happen.

    I don't think Texas will be too bad this year. They were extremely young last year.

    Re: Ubben voted us 8th in pre-season

    I don't see TCU over Texas. I actually don't think WVU will be that high either. Regardless of Skulletor's familiarity of the Big 12, it's going to be an adjustment period. You can throw out all your old film and knowledge of the Big East because it doesn't matter anymore.

    Texas will have a say with Oklahoma over who wins the conference. I think OU wins it but Texas is going to be good. That defense is going to be sick and if Ash plays average they won't have any problems finishing 2nd in the conference.

    I agree with this. OU will be 1 and Texas 2. Also, West Virginia is getting way too much love because of what they did in the orange bowl.
