    Opinions of other Big12 games

    After watching a few other Big 12 games this weekend I must say I am optimistic that we might have a decent chance of becoming bowl eligible this year.
    Colorado: wow did they get owned in the first half by there in-state rival @ home, there running game was reallly horrendous, honestly Darrell Scott for being so heaveliy recruit a few years ago has never shown up. Cody Hawkins is the bigger talker but I have never seen play to his potential, my presiction is we will not even see him start against us. I am especially excited because we have them at home.
    Kansas State: Played division 2 school UMass Who I know in past years has made runs at national titles but still Ksu comes away with a 3 point win, 21-17. If we get a 4-1 or 5-0 start with a win in KC the sky is the limit..
    Baylor: Did come away with a W or a team who over th past few years has had some decent seasons in Wake Forrest, but this team lost a ton to graduation last year, Balyoe jumped out to a big lead and was very colose to letting WF come all th way back at the end of the game.
    The other games r hard to analyis since most were pretty good beat downs against happless opponents. Long way to go between now and those games, take the games as they come, a win this next weekend would be a huge step in that direction but not the end of the world if it does not happen.

    I did not get to see many of the games at all but Baylor is one that made me open my eyes. Baylor went to an ACC school at beat them on their home turf, that is not easy. (Unless it is Duke)

    Looked like Tech struggled a bit before pulling away. I think OU will lose 3 games this year. I belive OSU and Texas will beat them.

    UMass is FCS, not D2.

    CO looked faster, stronger, bigger and more polished than ISU. CO State would beat us by 3 touchdowns.

    Biggest surprises:

    Missouri beating Illinois, and Colorado getting beat. Vegas missed those to by a big margin.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I think the OP was that Colorado and KSU are not world beaters. These games made their teams look 'human'.

    Didn't Coach Hawkins predict they would win 10 games this year?

    Just curious, jburke, does this include ISU's not all that impressive win against a "happless" opponent?

    Yep. And some people had them in the Big 12 North title mix. I haven't been sold of them and think they will struggle to get 6-7 wins.

    Baylor definitely impressed me. As did OSU.

    And I think we have a very good shot at beating K-State in KC.

    I'm fine with a 17 point win agasint an FCS team. Several teams struggled mightily against other FCS teams so a 3 score win is ok with me.

    ISU
    We better not drop our short passes this week if we want to be consistently marching down the field....
    Looks like we could use one more big hitter in the defense.
    Do we have the ability to pass rush this year?
    Really like that Sims fellow.

    CU - Cody Hawkins needs to be benched.
    OU - Bradford will be back to play Big 12 games.
    NU - Helu is the real deal.
    KSU - stunk it up.
    KU - can compete in the South.
    MU - hey, maybe they do have a real coach.
    OSU - almost a rough start.
    BU - they are for real.
    TU - ha-ha OU.
    TA&M - ho hum.
    TT - not as impressive as I expected.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus Naz, Dustin, Bryce, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and Jameel.
