    Espn Big 12 North: Ubben Breakdown

    Big 12 North breakdown: Nebraska tough to unseat in the North - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    I think he's way to optimistic about Kansas and K-State. Imo it's Nebbie, Mizzou, then clear separation to Iowa State. Below ISU it's KU, K-State, and CU.

    Re: Espn Big 12 North: Ubben Breakdown

    The KU prediction is a head scracher. They lost the key elements to what led to any of their success and he has them 4th in the conference? I'm not thinking so. I think ISU and KSU battle for the 3rd spot.

    If we didn't have such a tough schedule, third would easily be ours. I honestly have no idea where this team will finish. I am going to be cautiously optimistic this year.

    We should finish 3rd. I posted my thought on that site.

    it's probably pretty accurate based on what our record will be... kansas should probably be lower, but outside of that i'm guessing it'll be close.

    Re: Espn Big 12 North: Ubben Breakdown

    I think we'll have the 3rd to 4th best team in the North, but if we don't pull some big wins, our schedule will be our downfall and we could be looking at a 5th place finish. It's really going to depend on how polished the offense can become and how well the new starters on defense can step up.

    Exactly my thoughts-

    I think we should have the 3rd best team in the North. With that being said, we very well could end up 4th or 5th at the end of the year due to OU, Texas, and Tech.

    I am optimistic however at an improved A&M and a now consistently solid OSU team that our North counterparts have to face. That will be no easy task either. I think KU gets both this year, while better than OU/UT, still no walk in the park.

    That Charles7Mitchell7 feller is out of place. He's a Gator fan trying to talk ISU and the state of it's program. That would be like me trying to talk about how good or bad Appalachian State is going to be next season.

    I just asked him why he thinks Snyder will improve in year two and Rhoades won't/

    Well, replacing Armanti Edwards is no easy task. We could be looking at a down year.

    I see he hasn't responded yet, either.

    I actually had to google him to see if he was an ASU(?) player.

    We will make that extra point in year two!

    In all seriousness, this doesn't bug me at all. Build KU and KSU up so they can fall flat on their faces against us.
