    Improved Big 12 North

    Minus ISU the Big 12 north is a lot better than in previous years.

    Kansas is very new but solid.
    KSU is tough and another solid team.
    Nebby is not a world beater, but much improved.
    Mizzou is now ranked #10 and is 22-4

    ISU and CU still suck.

    Im not liking the trend of KSU AND Mizzou being good along with KU. I miss when Nebraska was an automatic win. :)

    Nebraska is really surprising to me. They really aren't that talented, yet Sadler has them playing well and extremely tough in Lincoln.

    They have some solid guards.

    Verlander (sp) can really shoot the ball.

    Cookie is really a pretty solid PG that can penetrate and dish.

    Harley is the play making slasher type that we have lacked for years.

    I find it disturbing that Nebraska has pieces that we are still missing.

    Nebraska is a good team, but they are missing a solid big. We are missing a solid guard, and Nebraska starts about 4 of them...

    ????????
    YES - KU should be solid again, Reesing and Meir are good Ball players.

    KSU is tough - what ?????,

    NU - much improved???? On Defense, but they will have alot of new players on Offense. They will be tough, but not much improved.

    Mizzou - He lost alot of players and some coaches. They still should be good, but not as good as the last couple of years.

    CU - I think they will be a lot better.

    ISU - Not sure what to expect. I hope we are better, but not expecting it.

    All that and you didn't mention their best player. Doganduro is far better than anyone else on their team.

    I guess I consider him a SF, but yes he is a stud. Much better scorer than I figured he would be.

    I was just going to point out the same thing in addition to him leading the team in toughness. He is the leader and heart of the team.

    Don't forget, Nebraska also has that big center eligible for next year. Last I heard he has put on nearly 40 pounds and Sadler expects him to be better and more versatile than Maric.

    Yes Sadler was a steal. It's going to be harder and harder to come out of Lincoln with a win.
