    Big 12 Spring Preview on CFN.com

    I think we're all in need of some football talk so I thought I'd post this article from CFN.com.

    Scout.com: Spring Preview 2010 - The Big 12

    Not a ton of in-depth research and nothing we didn't ready know but nice to see the media perception of ISU change a little.

    I'm liking the fact that The top 3 QB's in the big 12 do include Arnaud, which makes you wonder... is the big 12 going to be down a little?

    Can't be. Didn't some doofus say that Arnaud was the 7th worst QB in a BCS Conference and have him rated behind Cody Hawkins?

    I think it was 6th worst. Don't sell the doofus short!

    Edit: It was among returning quarterbacks, freshmen excluded.

    Re: Big 12 Spring Preview on CFN.com

    Given the fact that Arnaud is actually a top 3 QB in the Big 12 does indicate the league will be down. I'm optimistic Arnaud will have a strong senior season assuming the WRs stay healthy, but given his performance last year, if he's one of the top QBs in your league, the league is down.

    We will see how next fall goes, I think Arnaud has the ability to be a very good QB... We all know he can run, and is the unquestioned leader of the team. Lets hope he makes the best of his senior season and makes some good strides in his passing game. He has shown in some games in the past that he can be a passing threat.

    Re: Big 12 Spring Preview on CFN.com

    It's as much about who is returning. Right now you gotta take Arnaud over a guy like Garret Gilbert.

    Arnaud could very well finish the season as a top 3 (in the Big 12) QB, but it wouldn't surprise me if he finished lower.

    Re: Big 12 Spring Preview on CFN.com

    Wow, glad to see we've got Darius Darks for an extra two seasons!

    Seriously, I used to read that site, as it covers a very broad range of college football topics, but the factual errors and obvious severe lack of research, along with an unending stream of grammatical and punctuation errors, have really made me turn away from it. I really only read it for the laughs on rare occasions now.

    Well it makes me feel good that at least one source thinks Austen Arnaud has really yet to peak!
