    Left out of ESPN's Big12 this week preview show?

    Unless I missed something. Talked about 8 teams and we were not one.

    Probably because we are not one of the top 8 teams, and, to be honest, what does talking about our football team add to the show?

    We won 3 games last year, and the media is predicting us to have 4 wins at most this year. What's to talk about?

    Gotta earn respect to get respect. Kind of like the basketball team has done over the last 3 years. They earned respect, so they get respect.

    Like TCU who for some reason everyone thinks is going to be good this year? They won the same number of conference games as us last year.

    On ESPNU last night, and a lousy show. I was expecting a breakdown of every team.
    Texas, Baylor, & OU were discussed the vast majority of the hour segment.

    Iowa St was barely mentioned. KU was picked among the lower 1/3 of the conference to possibly make a bowl game

    The show was boring and a joke. OU was called 'overrated'

    Expect nothing less from ESPN, who licks the butts of the Big 10 and SEC. It was like this three-man panel was knocking the Big12 for an hour, and predicting a mediocre season

    We are not talking about rankings here or thinking there should be a positive outlook on the season.

    That's a ******** argument for a preview show though. Sure you'll spend more time on the projected leaders. But since when would a preview of a conference not even mention everyone in the conference?

    I already banned myself from watching ESPN for awhile last night because of that show. It was turrrible. Unless you have a reason to pimp a certain ESECPN conference because you own that network.

    Re: Left out of ESPN's Big12 this week preview show?

    The B12 needs a legit, concrete network that's as accessible and broad as the BTN instead of this Longhorn crap.

    The BTN has been showing enough footage to make it seem like Rutgers has history in the conference, and that Indiana has something to be excited about in football this year, because they spend so much time talking about each team/school.

    It's fun getting a fix by watching old games, but I refuse to believe Indiana/Northwestern from 2007 or whatever is 'Classic College Football'.

    Pretty sure Arkansas and Kentucky are getting plenty of air time/mentions between the ESPN networks.

    There's a lot more notable football history at Arkansas than we can dream of.
    Kentucky has had some fun recent teams in between the bad ones, with guys like Tim Couch and Jared Lorenzen making real names for themselves there.

    We should have been mentioned, but only Cyclone fans will really notice. Gotta get some wins and notoriety to change that.
