    Re: Little to argue in Ubben's Big12 look-see ...

    I agree that our defense last year gave up a lot of yards. I'm hoping we'll be able to keep the offense on the field to give the D a breather this year. Way too many three and outs last year.

    you obviously know few k-state fans, and further have made a finding that bill snyder actually pulls for opponents by playing his lesser talent. perhaps he bets that way in vegas or something.

    He didn't place State in third, he placed K-State in third. There is only one team that can properly be called "State" on this site.

    Sams was definitely the more athletic, exciting, and dynamic QB of the two. However he wasn't the overall better QB. If he was, then why did he hardly ever play the second half of the season? I think Snyder of all people would know who the better QB was. That's why he played Waters.

    F**k Ubben! I was glad he left ESPN so I wouldn't have to read his ridiculously biased analysis anymore. He's just a UT-OU homer. He has started to also jump on the Baylor bandwagon. I remember how his articles had a LOT of stuff about UT, OU, TT, Baylor, OSU, and maybe a line or two about the other schools. Worst Big12 blogger ever. I don't think any of the other analysts at ESPN have that much love for ISU, but at least they give all big 12 schools some more even coverage.

    I love our hate for Ubben. I don't really hate him. I just love the fact as a fanbase we do.

    He still has a job? Amazing how easily you forget about a sports reporter when they no longer work for ESPN.

    No it doesn't. Most of the time Ubben has been spot on where he picks us to finish.

    Jake Waters is more than capable of getting K-State to finish in the top 3 of the conference.
