    He is the typical "SEC, SEC, SEC" Missouri fan. He managed to use last week's A$M win over Bama as a way to take a shot at the Big 12. He really needs to get off the Big 12 beat.

    I agree with you. Posting the link will get him traffic though.

    You should read this analysis he put out earlier. It would probably be more to your liking:

    Re: Ubben being a real ****

    Agree with awd4cy. Nothing in that post jumped out as being wrong or a lie. Kansas State was the Big 12's shot at a title as of this weekend, and they lost to an unranked Baylor team.

    I don't agree with some of his past coverage, but this article was fair. Tough pill to swallow watching the B12 title shot slip away but life isn't rainbows & unicorns all the time.

    I hindsight no there was nothing that wasn't true. As I was reading it I felt that his choice of words made it, feel to me, that he was rubbing it and laughing at the Big 12.

    Nothing he said isn't accurate. I'm not a Ubben fan but he's dead on this article.

    Some of you are too easily offended. As proof of this, I offer the ensuing posts where you are offended by my suggestion.

    And I know he meant the "No. 1 team (which was playing) on the road," but bad sentence structure.

    Re: Ubben being a real ****

    Its been a pattern lately. He's very quick to declare the SEC the best conference despite mountains of evidence that the big 12 is just as good (and the sagarin ratings have the big 12 higher!). You can view the KSU loss however you want depending on your slant... either as KSU being overrated or the conference being deep enough that even its low end can rise up and take out the top (which the computers back up).

    And this is the guy who is saying Ohio State, despite beating a historically bad big 10, deserves to have a split national title. Despite the fact that one of the teams that will likely be in the title game absolutely destroyed the big 10 team it played.
