    Re: David Ubben driving me crazy

    I think Tech will be the worst defense we've played this year. Seriously

    Re: David Ubben driving me crazy

    I would be surprised if either team got to 40 in this one, our defense has looked pretty good to me especially the linebackers and secondary, I just don't see Tech having their way with our D. I'm not sure how people are bringing up a game 2 years ago in order to make a prediction for the current game (didn't Utah hang 68 on us that year?).

    So let me get this straight. ISU is higher in the polls, has hammered Tech two straight years, has better wins, playing at home, and the lines are pretty much at a pick 'em, yet ISU over Tech is an upset?

    It's hard not to chuckle at times at ole Ubben.

    41 points seems a little high, but not outrageous IMO.

    The lines have Tech favored by 3.

    Re: David Ubben driving me crazy

    Last I checked the line was at what, 3? Add in the 2 or 3 point homefield factor and it's pretty safe to say on a neutral field Tech would be favored by 6 or 7. Doesn't seem like a stretch to call it an upset.

    Seems like he's doing just fine to me. Just about every day there's another post about what this guy said, wrote or tweeted.

    David Ubben didn't pick us to win??? Can't be. Hopefully the team can go out there and shove it up his ***.

    So the OP is saying we need someone to start an #antidavidubben ...?

    Waste your time if you see it necessary, I guess...

    Re: David Ubben driving me crazy

    I have no problem with David Ubben picking Texas Tech to win. He’s entitled to have his opinion. However, just yesterday in his Big XII blog he acknowledged Iowa State was a 3-point underdog and put this game on Upset Alert. http://espn.go.com/blog/big12/index/_/count/16

    How can you predict Texas Tech to win 41-28 today when just yesterday you put the game on Upset Alert? What has changed in the last 24 hours? At least be consistent.

    Go Cyclones!!!

    Re: David Ubben driving me crazy

    I don't understand the outrage with Ubben's pick.

    Reasons ISU should win:
    We've done well against them the past two years.
    Our defense has been solid.
    Rhoads might have Tubbervile figured out. (?)
    Home field advantage.

    Reasons TT should win:
    Solid offensively and defensively (even if it's been against poor competition).
    Doege is a good-great quarterback.
    Talent level - I'm too lazy to look this up again, but their recruiting classes average around #30 over the past 5 years and ours average around #70.
    We have been turning the ball over way too much.

    Ubben's prediction seems reasonable to me. I'm excited and nervous about this game - I think it's about 50-50.
