    Big 12 Teams in "Early" 2010 Football Rankings

    Some of the "early" 2010 football rankings are coming out and the Big 12 isn't showing up as well as we'd like to see. Here are three I found:

    Rivals:
    7. Nebraska
    8. Texas
    12. Oklahoma

    ESPN:
    5. Texas
    8. Nebraska
    12. Oklahoma

    College Hotline:
    9. Nebraska
    14. Texas
    17. Oklahoma
    20. Missouri

    As a point of reverence, Alabama is rated number-one and Ohio State two in all three polls. Iowa is 14, 9, and 8 respectively.

    What? Iowa's supposed to be the national champs next year!

    This is about where I would expect to see the Big XII teams in early rankings.

    how can texas be behind nebraska?! nebraska had no offense and they lose Suh.. i know Texas loses McCoy but wow that really kind of shocks me


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    The Big 12 is young, we will be back soon.

    Texas loses basically all their playmakers. McCoy, Shipley, Kindle, Earl Thomas, and Muckelroy just off the top of my head. Nebraska returns 10 offensive starters and the offense looked much better in the bowl game. Obviously losing Suh hurts, but D-line had some depth with Baker Steinkuhler (who was actually a higher rated recruit than Suh out of high school) likely replacing Suh. Probably the biggest concern for the Nebraska D is replacing Phil Dillard. Dillard was playing great at the end of the year and the other linebackers looked below average throughout the season. They have a commitment from one of the top Juco LB's (Lavonte David), but who knows if he will be ready to contribute in 2010.

    A healthy Zac Lee and Roy Helu will be huge (for those who don't know, Lee underwent surgery on his throwing elbow and/or hand right after the Holiday Bowl that was injured early in the year) along with more experienced WR's and the offense should be much improved in 2010.

    Edit: I self-deleted the rest of my reply as Mr.Reality addressed my other points.
