    BCS Rankings Out - OU #5, KU#4

    tOSU is still #1, followed by LSU and Oregon.

    I would like to think we would need our "A" game that week.

    If We Beat Kansas.. that would be the most awesome payback we have..almost ever had


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: BCS Rankings Out - OU #5, KU#4

    I can't even stomach watching a game on TV in Lawrence because the field gives me flashbacks of that November day in 2005. Wanting to vomit just talking about it.

    That would be a fair payback I must say. Ruining an unblemished season. It's much less likely to happen than what happened two years ago though. Hopefully we can at least give them a scare.

    Would be great if that game were here instead of there. Would make for some good fun when we pull off the upset.

    Re: BCS Rankings Out - OU #5, KU#4

    Don't forget Missouri at #6.

    Big 12 isn't getting much love even though they have #4, 5, and 6 in the BCS.

    its a beauty contest, and historically kansas and mizzou aren't pretty. texas has the ugliest looking 2 loss season they have probably ever had, so the pollsters aren't to big on them either. ttech and a&m have tailed off and okie state lost to troy. that pretty much sums up why we don't get much love as a whole. oh that and the fact that us and baylor are in it

    Obviously I want ISU to upset KU, but I would love to see KU make the big game if we don't.

    Re: BCS Rankings Out - OU #5, KU#4

    Well, I think either Oklahoma, Kansas or Missouri have a damn good shot at the BCS championship game.

    The winner of Kansas/Missouri (given that both teams get to there in the same position they are now, which I think is quite likely), will play Oklahoma in the big 12 championship game. If Oklahoma gets to that game with one loss, whoever comes out of the Big 12 championship game will have either 1 or 0 losses, and will have just beaten 2 top 5 teams in a row. If Kansas runs the table, they go undefeated, and there's NO way they don't to the BCS championship after beating Oklahoma and Missouri, both very good teams, in consecutive games.

    If Oklahoma wins the Big 12, they are a 1 loss team that just knocked off a top 5 team. LSU has been just barely hanging in there, and they still have a championship game to play. I think it's certainly possible that the Big 12 would get two teams in the BCS at any rate.

    If Missouri beats Kansas and Oklahoma, it's a 1 loss team that just knocked off two top 5 teams, and had it's only loss to a ranked Oklahoma, at Norman. I don't see how this is any worse than LSU's record.

    Here's hoping that Michigan knocks off Ohio State, because in that case, I think a Big 12 team is almost a lock to go to the NC game.

    If KU wins out don't they HAVE to get selected for the BCS championship?

    I don't know. I'd love to see a Big XII team in the title game but if you've seen KU's schedule, particularly non-conf, they've played no one. Potential wins over Mizzou and Okla would certainly get them close but I can see a good, if not better argument for LSU or Oregon if they managed to win out.

    Nope. Gotta love the BCS point system.

    Hopefully they're are ranked #2 when we play them. They seem to go down so easy.

    LSU might have to lose again though.
