    I might understand if Big 12/SEC schedule was set two seasons ago, but when was it — May? As you said, Ole Miss, Alabama (even Vanderbilt, although that team is probably middling at best this season) would make more sense (unless everyone thought ISU was going to drop completely off the map. I would take LSU or Missouri, too.

    Oh well, just crush 'em and move on.

    "This is equity based", Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said. "Our best teams will be matched up against their best teams, middle teams against middle teams and those building their programs against others doing the same."

    I guess he feels that Iowa State is still building their program.

    Can we just add another team to the schedule? This week long wait sucks!

    Re: In a Week, it's Auburn

    Whatever. Much rather would have preferred a better team then Auburn, but what we got is what we got. Let's just kick *** and win by 15, move on, and focus on UNI, who we haven't beaten since god knows when.

    Yeesh.

    To Auburn's credit, it rallied to beat a team that has faced a top-25 team (Wichita State). That's more than Auburn could say heading into the game. In a way, UA defeated itself!

    Re: In a Week, it's Auburn

    Auburn is one of those gutty little teams that can make you beat yourself (if you're not careful) They have confidence and the ability to get you into foul trouble early. This happens when teams exploit a weakness in Auburn and tries to capitalize on it, thus ringing up fouls if you don't accomplish what you (as a player) set out to do.

    Re: In a Week, it's Auburn

    This is my opinion of the outcome of the Auburn game. We will win by 15 or more. The game will never be in doubt. And those who label this game as "tricky", are just absolutely crazy!
