    Ubbens just doesn't get it

    In his latest column he's putting down TCU and does it to us too.

    "TCU lost by 14 at home to what's likely the ninth-best team in the Big 12. Or eighth, perhaps, after handing a hefty beating to the Frogs."

    i think we're going to have to win the next three for him to even consider that we are better than 9th in the conference.

    Re: Ubbens just doesn't get it

    You think we are higher than 8th

    I can totally see the argument for us being 8th.... with that said... 8th in the Big 12 can still be pretty ok

    I believe we can beat Okie State this year, as well as Baylor.
    No Defense!!!

    Re: Ubbens just doesn't get it

    I think the only certain ranking is #10...after that, everything is pretty fluid right now.

    Re: Ubbens just doesn't get it

    We have one conference game where we played really solid football and came away with a win, and we have the Texas Tech game, yes we'll need more wins to be considered a serious threat.

    Re: Ubbens just doesn't get it

    Yeah, sadly being 8th or 9th in the big 12 this year doesn't mean you're a bad team. There's only one bad team in the conference. Pretty ridiculous but true

    Re: Ubbens just doesn't get it

    The 9th best Big 12 team is likely better than the 2nd best team in the Big Ten. Seriously. The Big 12 is deeper than octomom's vaginal canal.

    Whatever. We're pretty solid. He can think whatever he wants.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Ubbens just doesn't get it

    i think you need to relax and realize that ubben's opinion is just that, an opinion...which is no more relevant or less than yours. the reality is isu hasn't been consistent enough to be ranked higher than 8th. even so, where would you put them? 5? 6? 7? it is still in the bottom half, so whats the problem? can they beat the remainder of teams on the schedule? sure...IF the offense can execute and stay on the field, something they haven't proved week in and week out they can do.

    this constant..."get no respect" attitude is just tiresome. who cares? polls don't get you to a bowl game, nor does ubben...so let it go. geezus.

    I can agree with this. But at this point 1-4 are fairly interchangeable as well. Not a complete wash, but I wouldn't be shocked to see any changes there
