    ESPN Big 12 blog picks

    WVU to win. I dont normally whine about these things and realize who cares what ubbs thinks, but it kinda struck a sore nerve. He said our defense was one of the slower ones in the Big12 as the reason he was picking WVU (didnt bother me that much).

    What did bother me was when talking about Baylor he said that he had faith in the bears earily but lost it when they lost to ISU. If we win this week we will likely finish 6th in the Big 12 and he acts like we are Kansas.

    False. He's not tall enough.

    I agree with you, I picked up on both those things as well. It really doesn't bother me that he picked against us (it should be a close game), but it is clear from everything he says that he has no respect for us at all. It really seems like he believes we're really the worst team in the Big XII, but we get lucky and win several games we shouldn't. For example, I really don't see how he still has TCU higher than us in his power ratings.

    I think the main reason is that he really overvalues teams with good offenses and undervalues teams with good defenses. You could make the case that our offense has been (last week notwithstanding) the worst or the second worst in the Big 12.

    Re: ESPN Big 12 blog picks

    Just remember that last week he picked Kansas beating Iowa State as his "upset special". Anyone remember how that one turned out?

    Not sure why Ubbs not giving credit to ISU surprises anyone at this point.

    Re: ESPN Big 12 blog picks

    As a follow up to this prediction I just read USA Today's preview for the West Virginia vs. Iowa State game and they are picking West Virginia 52-35. They didn't really say anything bad about ISU but they said WVU had to much offense that ISU couldn't keep up with. What I didn't understand was they didn't explain was ISU's defense giving up 52 points in a game where nobody else has even come close to that.

    Do what I do. Don't read his crap. His opinion has always been that ISU isn't worth much. On occasion, he throws us a bone, but it's usually backhanded. Knowing that, I've avoided his opinion piece. You guys should give it a try.

    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    If anyone is going to score 52 on Iowa State, it's probably WVU.

    Only way I see it happening, though, is if ISU gets in a big hole early.

    I want to agree with the prevailing opinions, but being an older Cyclone fan, I still have trouble shaking the past. i.e. looking over my shoulder, waiting for the other shoe to drop, waiting to wake up, etc.

    Anyone see Tavon Austin make the OU defense look silly? Holgorson made an adjustment to get the ball into the hands of one of CFB's best players. That could spell t-r-o-u-b-l-e for us.

    I'll take CPR, Wally, and our D any day. They won't get anywhere near 50, they might get 30.

    Anyone remember this?
