    I can see UT running the table

    and going to the NCG this season.

    Key games;

    @ BYU
    Ole Miss
    KSU
    vs. OU
    OSU

    Thoughts? Tell me in detail which games UT loses and why.

    KSU. Because Mack Brown can't beat Bill Snyder.

    I never want to see ISU lose, but if Texas beats us, runs the table, and beats the SEC champ in NCG, I would have no regrets about that loss. The SEC needs to be toppled, and if its a Big 12 team doing the toppling, I can live with us losing to them.

    Yeah, I didn't realize it's been FIVE straight losses.

    Not me. I would MUCH rather beat Texas this year and have 'Bama repeat. Hell, if we could beat Texas this year I would be ok with 'Bama winning the NCG for the next 5 years. Let's worry about ourselves first.

    We can have a damn good year without beating Texas. We've been to 3 bowl games out of 4 years under Rhoads. The year we beat Texas, we didn't bowl.

    I am so god damn sick of the SEC and ESPN and everyone slobbing their knob. They need to get beat out, and I'm concerned that the only way another conference gets into that game is with an undefeated squad.

    Throw in the fact that a Big 12 school winning a national title is a very good thing for this conference's overall strength and health, and I'd argue that my suggestion is directed at worrying about ourselves first.

    I cant believe this. You would rather have ISU lose to Texas if it meant an SEC team wouldn't win the NCG? Sure, the Big 12 would get some more air time, but what's that air time going to consist of? Probably nothing but highlights of ISU letting Texas slip one right up the gut for 60 yards. I would watch the SEC/ESPN lovefest all day everyday over watching gut wrenching replays like that.

    ISU beating Texas would make our stock rise faster than Texas winning the national championship, hands down. It's ridiculous that we're even discussing this.

    Did you learn anything during realignment?

    ISU's long term security is very much hinged on the success of the Big 12. A national championship for any Big 12 school in the next couple of years is a really good thing for ISU.

    I'll be rooting my heart out for ISU that day, and beating Texas at home this year would be huge if we start out 3-0. But if we lose that game, like we probably will, and Texas goes on to win the national title, I wouldn't feel bad about that loss AT ALL. Now, if we finish 11-1, I'll be singing a different tune, but we both know that ain't gonna happen. We already beat Texas. It was nice, but it got lost in the shuffle of not making a bowl game. Beating Texas, in and of itself, isn't that huge of a deal, IMO. If it spring boards us to a great year, its incredible. But if we beat Texas and do nothing else, it hasn't done a whole hell of a lot of good.

    Long term, I think a Big 12 team winning a national title in the next year or two would be as beneficial (if not more) for ISU as ISU beating Texas.

    Yeah, I suppose they should've made the list of key games but I sort of have a "believe it when I see it" attitude about TCU.

    Yeah, absolutely right but I guess I'm not sold on what I see as a lot of TCU hype around Pachall coming back this season (what I meant about "believe it when I see it"). TCU's defense will be legit but I don't see TCU holding UT to 13 points this season...or scoring more points.

    Also, UT has a bye week after OU and before TCU.

    Re: I can see UT running the table

    I don't think there is a game they can't win, but I don't see how they run the table when you combine that schedule with inconsistent QB play. I see them around 8 wins this season.

    I think Ole Miss, OU, OSU, @Baylor, & @TCU are all toss ups. And I wouldn't be surprised to see someone else upset them.

    I think this is true. Texas has the talent to beat anyone on their schedule. Not sure if they have the coaching to get that out of their players every game though. Bryan Harsin was just starting to revamp their offense after Greg Davis and now he's the HC at Arkansas State. Major Applewhite has a lot to prove with inconsistent QBs.

    KSU is a tough start to the Big12 season. The OU game is a toss up usually going to whichever team gets the momentum first and TCU gets them at home.
