    I've always considered Baylor as ISU's Super Bowl. After 2005, of course.

    Re: Big XII Football

    Right now ISU would struggle to score that many points in a full game-length practice.

    They don't have the talent to do so.

    It's possible to swap another L to get a W at home vs. OU. I just don't see Baylor being at a high enough level throughout the entire season to do better than 8-4 or 7-5.

    The WV QB had all the time he wanted tonight, couldn't make many throws, plus good coverage.

    That being said, our line probably wont compare.

    Re: Big XII Football

    Baylor scored 70 points on a Mid-American Conference team that went 4-8 last year and 3-9 the year before that.

    I'm not convinced whatsoever Baylor is top 10 material.

    Re: Big XII Football

    I could see Baylor going undefeated. No joke. No teams in this league can put up points like them this year and their defense has definitely improved (can't get much worse). OSU and TCU will challenge them out other than they could be playing in a BCS Bowl or better, depending on how the rest of the country shakes out.

    My pick for the Big 12 after week two is Baylor, especially watching OU only score 16 on WV and Texas lose by 19 @BYU where they gave up 500+ rushing yards.

    You should have seen it when I said I understood why a few experts were picking them to win the B12 a couple months ago. Once their defense went from terrible to merely below average at the end of the year last year, they became contenders.

    I am so stoked to enjoy a year free of conference strength arguments. Love you weak Big 12! Now let's win some games Cyclones!

    We need to get over the Big 10. The only team we could compete with in that league right now is Purdue. Maybe.

    They haven't played anyone with a pulse. And they still don't have a defense.
