    Re: David Ubben on crack apparently

    Power rankings are completely pointless in a conference with a round robin schedule, by week 5 anyone who wouldn't just use the exact conference standings is an irrational idiot. I can see the interest in it the first few weeks though.

    Re: David Ubben on crack apparently

    This is what gets me ticked at his stuff:
    Big 12 predictions: Week 7 - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    Pick Purple Kitties by one point. Doesn't bother me so much that he picked them, it's more the 1 point thing. He's done this in half our games (Purple Kansas, TCU and EIU). I get that he thinks they are going to be close games, but he's just covering his *** with the 1 pt so he can say he picked the right team if they win, or if they lose can make it seem less of a surprise and getting less of a burn off of it. (He also tried to cover his butt for the Tech game by saying he was worried about picking against us because of what CPR has done, what a cop-out).

    The little hobbit needs to poop or get off the pot. None of this see-saw crap, pick a team and go with it! Pick by a field goal or 1 TD for all I care, just not this 1 pt junk!

    Have you seen their defense? Ranked dead last in FBS in total defense. What do you think the winning percentage in college football is for a team scoring 63 points? I can tell you that Baylor's winning percentage in that situation is .000

    Yeah I get that. I personally think ISU is better then Baylor, but nobody should be surprised that Baylor is ranked ahead of us. When you put on an offensive show like that, you will get some respect.

    David Ubben is like the new Matt Perrault on this site. I love it.

    Yeah... I am not too worried about what Ubben's rankings are. I find his blog amusing more then anything. So far this season he has put teams facing ISU on upset alert 3 times and then turned around to pick that team to beat ISU every time. The thing I am sure that irritates some in the fan base is the lack of respect ISU gets. ISU is never picked to do much by any of the experts prior to the season and I think ISU fans expect that from national college football writers that have probably never even seen Iowa State play. On the other hand Ubben is supposedly the Big XII expert... a guy who is up to date on all Big XII teams and has studied up on teams like ISU that don't get as much exposure. Surely he would have a better idea of what ISU is capable of after watching what they have done over the past couple of seasons and what they have accomplished so far this season. Yet... somehow his predictions are just as bad as the experts that know nothing about ISU and in that sense it makes his predictions even worse.

    That's more or less what I was thinking. I haven't watched Okie Lt play, though

    Re: David Ubben on crack apparently

    It must be some ****** crack because there is nothing wrong with those rankings. Yeah, you could argue that ISU should be ahead of Baylor, but you could just as easily (if not more easily) argue the opposite. People need to stop freaking out every time some sports guy doesn't "respect" ISU. It's getting ridiculous.
