    The Oklahoman (NewsOK.com) ranks ISU LB's last

    Tough to argue, I suppose. The truth hurts sometimes...

    That said, Bibbs is the only Senior LB on our roster, so there is potential for this current group to improve.

    I rank OU's academics last in the Big 12.

    Our front 7 REALLY worries me.

    Considering we were not that great there last year and lost both DTs (one to NFL) and Bowen to NFL. As with any position there are a LOT of guys who have not really proven anything and may turn out to be great players. The problem is the odds of SEVERAL guys stepping up are pretty slim.

    I like how they rank Oklahoma 5th... and instead of justifying who puts them in the top half they just mention losing their best linebacker.

    I have nothing to base this on, but I just have a sense that the staff is happy with our LB's and DL. The returning players are quite differentl phsycially than we ended with last season.

    We'll start finding out in just under 30 days and two hours.

    Let the kids play....the amount of research and effort that went into that article beyond looking at preseason rosters is minimal. I doubt the author has ever watched any film of ISU LB's nor could he name a single player on ISU's roster without looking

    So true. Having the misfortune of living in Omaha, I get all the cornhole crap all the time. Nebraska only has 1 guy at LB that has ever played the position in college. At least Bibbs and Garin have seen the field. Not to mention the one guy Nebraska does have back is pictured in the article, and is being out run by a fat Chase Daniels. This is the same Nebraska defense that gave up something like 7895 points per game last year. Their top 4 guys are gone, that could be good, but the guys there last year were not good enough to play.

    How about poor Baylor. He says LB may be the team's strength and yet they are only ranked # 9!

    I am not worried about our backers. They will be fine. THE KEY to our season will be the NG and DT spots. If we get good production from those spots we could be looking at 8 wins. If they struggle, we'll be looking at another 3 win season.

    We know he's good - not sure anyone else in this nation does.

    I kinda like it that way...

    But most likely we wont, which could really expose our 'young' backers. Thats why Im guessing 4 wins. I really hope Im way wrong.

    We shouldn't have "bad" play out of any position this year, although I'm not sure we'll have superior play out of any either. I'm looking for a legitimate 6 win team this year.

    edit: I'll admit I'm being optimistic with the number of unknowns we have. ;)

    Just because its the team's strength doesn't mean the team/players are any good. My thoughts on it, take it for what it's worth.
