    Kansas City Star - Position Rankings

    Link ===> Big 12 football team ratings by position - Kansas City Star

    Hard to argue any of them except for the receivers seems a little low than what I would have expected.

    Re: Kansas City Star - Position Rankings

    The receivers ranking does seem a little low. Do we really have the third best special teams in the Big 12? Did everyone else graduate?

    I guess I was happy to not see us last in every category, let alone not last in any category.

    Brandtner is an excellent punter. He can boot it a long way, but has great control.

    And we were top 15 in kickoff return yards last season (although not real hard to do when we get kicked to 8 times a game)

    Re: Kansas City Star - Position Rankings

    Pretty fair across the board. I would rank WRs higher, but I think if anything, it highlights the quality of this league's passing attacks.

    Not when you consider how many passing yards we gave up last year.

    I agree though, talent wise, our secondary is better than that. Hopefully we can show it on game days

    My personal opinion is that ARob is a little low, but he really hasn't put up the stats to support it yet.

    I was thinking after seeing this is why did everyone pick ISU to finish last? ISU wasn't deadlast in any category, and (surprisingly) were rated pretty well in several categories.

    Yeah, I know the old standard reply - "ISU has won just two conference games in the last two years. That's why."

    Still...

    Re: Kansas City Star - Position Rankings

    The DMR covers the Cyclones as an after thought and that will never change. I think the reason we are still picked to finish last is that not one of our areas is high enough to make up for the lower areas. Plus our track record on the road does not help at all.
