    Pretty amazing that 9 out of the 10 teams in the Big 12 have been ranked in the top 25 this year though.

    I don't understand why people are upset about this. Yeah it sucks, but it's less about how "bad" we are, and more about the depth of the big 12.

    Re: Reality bites: Big XII rank

    Anybody want to play that Texas Tech game again? Coming out of a bye week at home, we should win. What is Paul's record coming out of bye weeks, I wonder? too lazy to look up.
    I will admit, I am a big Paul R. fan......I just don't know how that staff could have watched Steel PLAY (NOT practice, for God's sake) PLAY like poop and keep putting him in there week after week. All our quarterbacks are good guys, and good players, but we are playing against other players who are on scholarship too, and apparently we are getting out-coached many times.

    After 2nd you just as well draw names out of a hat. On a week to week basis you just can't guess who's going to win or lose each week.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Yet beat Baylor and TCU head-to-head.

    6-6 is 6-6 whether you finish 7th or 9th.

    Re: Reality bites: Big XII rank

    Well, this is why we don't get the preseason respect we all crave from the media, other fanbases, coaches and players.

    9th out of 10 teams. Right where they all predicted us to finish.

    Have to agree - we haven't been near the top half at the end of a season in a very long time. Still a long way for CPR to go to get us to where we want to be.

    Yeah, but how many of them had ISU winning 6 games and going bowling?

    Re: Reality bites: Big XII rank

    Quite frankly there were more negatives than positives this season. A competent offense beats tech and wvu. The OSU blowout was inexcusable (and it looks more so every week) as was UT to a lesser extent. We should've taken Iowa to the woodshed. We are damn lucky TCU lost their QB 2 days before playing us.. boykin has looked good since and probably would've beaten us 2 weeks later.

    and don't use the 'Vegas expected us to suck' crap. Vegas will always expect us to suck until we do otherwise at least once.

    Ninth is under performing. The qb situation was a mess.

    How many of these same media and fanbases had us going bowling again with one of the top 5 schedules in the country?
