    Disappointing for sure. Iowa state just doesn't have the same caliber of play makers and lines. It's life, we aren't sneaking up on anyone anymore. Two winnable games remain. Go Cyclones.

    Did I hear during the 20 minutes I had a video stream that they only lose 3 starters? They're always hyped but that team losing nobody will deserve it.

    I think this is right, return almost all of the team. They are playing tons better than when they played OU. I expect to see them in the top ten before year end and likely top 5 to start next year.

    Texas, Okie State, and TCU will be much improved next year.

    Not sold on TCU. Texas will be competing for a title. Just when we thought Mack brown might be under pressure. He is reloading. Not a Texas fan but I do appreciate him making Greg Davis available to Iowa.

    Texas is better than I thought. Their 2 early losses lulled me into thinking they were nothing special. That is a potential Big 12 champion next season.

    Texas has a ton of talent. I think they will be a top 5 team next season.

    Re: Texas is pretty good. Will be great next year.

    Texas will probably have a high preseason ranking, look marginal early and get crushed by OU, will be written off as Mack-Brown-fired rumors start, then will rebound sometime around the Iowa State game.

    They will be better but that only makes them a 4-5 win team instead of a 1-2 win team.

    TCU has had so many injuries this year. Next year they should be healthy, have a year of experience for all their young guys (namely Boykin), and will have another year of big conference recruits. They will be better.
