    The Jayhawks haven’t managed more than 5.0 yards per game

    SI seems to have fallen to BR levels over the years.

    Is it a commentary on how good Duke is? Or just how bad KU is?

    I never get caught up into preseason hype and garbage. Push to shove they know nothing more than anyone else just get paid to write about junk. Easiest job ever.

    Basically anyone can write an article for them. People always gawk at "top 10 whatever lists" and fail to realize that the guy who wrote it works a dayjob and just writes for BR for some extra cash, he's no more informed than I am.

    Re: SI Big 12 Preview

    Criticism is fair only if you step up with your own predictions. Here are mine as of today.

    BU, K-State, OU (three way tie for first)

    TCU (a lot returning)
    UT (may be too high)
    TT (all hat no cattle)
    OSU (reloading not)

    ISU (better)
    WVU (worse)
    Ku (same)

    True, although they just might be equally informed to most sportswriters.

    BR does have some good writers (Adam Kramer being one of my favorites of any site) but they also have guys doing "Top 10 hottest athletes wives lists". Not exactly hard hitting journalism.

    I agree 100%. I just like to point out that sportswriters tend not to know much about sports, and write the same lazy articles and "insights" over and over. I might be a little jealous that they manage to get paid for nothing that way.
