    Re: KC Star: Dont go to sleep on Cyclones

    That's a pretty good, accurate write up of the teams in the big twelve, probably the best one I have seen so far.

    The Star is the best paper in the midwest in my opinion. At least they have a great sports section.

    I have always loved the K.C. Star Sports page. They've always taken care of ISU.

    Sad that we can't get the same quality of coverage in Iowa.

    Re: KC Star: Dont go to sleep on Cyclones

    I noticed on the ESPN ticker last night during the Texas game that NE has the best defense in the Big XII statistically. Is that accurate or is it a function of the teams they have played to date??

    Re: KC Star: Dont go to sleep on Cyclones

    Very similar to Barfknecht's conference ranking in today's Omaha World Herald. Another paper that has good Big XII/ISU coverage.

    We need to get a road win before I'll rank us that high.

    Re: KC Star: Dont go to sleep on Cyclones

    Blair K does a good job covering the Big 12. If the ISU ended the season where he has them ranked that will be huge for this program.

    A little bit of both. It's also skewed by the fact that they play VERY slow. But their SOS is also 234th, and their noncon SOS was a whopping 330th. So yes - they have played one of the worst schedules in the entire country so far.

    I just looked - they have the 3rd worst noncon SOS of any BCS conference team. Only AZ St. and Oregon St. have worse ones.

    Papers outside of Iowa (KC Star and OWH) actually cover Big 12 sports, which is awesome. The DMR just covers ISU. It's just not a big-time paper.

    That will happen when you play
    Presbyterian (they played against a religion?)
    Alabama A&M
    Norfolk State
    Creighton (L)
    IPFW
    Arizona State
    Western Kentucky (L)
    Rutgers
    Savannah State
    Oregon
    North Carolina Central
    Alcorn State
    Maryland Eastern-Shore

    It's no wonder they have started out 0-3 in the league.

    That schedule had to fire up the 800 Nebraska season ticket holders.
