    Bye Weeks - Big XII

    Anybody else notice how nearly every other team in the Big XII has 2 bye weeks during the season but us? I get that we don't play a game the final week, but this kinda sucks! I didn't realize this until our OSU neighbors were off AGAIN yesterday. What's up with this? Has it always been like this and I've just missed it?


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    Seeing that we don't seem to perform well coming out of a bye week, I am glad we don't have more.

    A certain game last season would beg to differ.

    Didn't we technically have a conference schedule bye before TT? And yes it sucks to have a bye on the last week.

    Guess the losses stick with me more than the wins!

    We have a second "bye" week, it's just when our season is over with, if that makes sense.

    I wish we played the first weekend of December again. We will see what 2013 schedule looks like.
