    Ubben has to be trolling ISU....right?

    David Ubben ‏@davidubben Good sentiment. Poor word choice. T.J. Moe on playing Alabama: "itís our opportunity to be an Iowa State of last year" http://*******/VKug1b

    Followed by:

    David Ubben ‏@davidubben
    Just a hunch, but I don't think Missouri intended on leaving the Big 12 so it could become Iowa State, "Giant Killer" storyline aside.

    Ubben looks like a troll might as well act like one.

    Ubben ticks me off sometimes, but that doesn't bother me much.

    I sort of laugh at all of it, but it's almost like he goes out of his way with comments like that, backhanded compliments, etc.

    Re: Ubben has to be trolling ISU....right?

    Not really that big of a troll...honestly I'd take it as just normal reporting - Mizzou on the other hand can go suck an egg. I'm glad they're enjoying their new friends in the SEC.

    I don't see anything wrong with what he said. I'm guessing Missouri's goal was to be a "giant" not a "giant killer"

    If ISU beats Kansas State on Satruday Ubben will have to be put on suicide watch...


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Re: Ubben has to be trolling ISU....right?

    He makes a valid point. Iowa State is a bottom half team that is trying to climb up to the top half by upsetting highly ranked teams.

    Mizzou hasn't been in that position for several years now. Yes he should want to beat Alabama but his comments make it seem like Mizzou is going to be the bottom team in the SEC and they need to upset the big guys to start to move up.

    Like Ubben said, Mizzou shouldn't have the feeling that it left the Big 12 to sit beside Ole Miss or Kentucky in the SEC standings.

    Re: Ubben has to be trolling ISU....right?

    From the link it sounds like Moe was referring to someone taking down a highly rated team to shake up the BCS. Ubben made the A-hole connection. He is a first class doosh.

    Why is he covering Mizzou, again?

    Re: Ubben has to be trolling ISU....right?

    MU has to actually win a game to be called a "Giant Killer"
    Besides, Alabama will win by 40 so MU can suck on that. Screw Ubben too.

    Would love to see Missery beat Bama. Just to shake things up. Possibly give West Virginia a shot at the title. At least til the last week of the season

    Naw, he'll just write an article about how badly Kansas State played and how they beat themselves.

    Correct, it's also in the SEC. Which last time I checked, isn't the Big 12.

    I don't think it's thin skinned to ask for a little respect from the guy who is supposed to cover all the teams in our conference for a major sport news outlet.
