    Re: BIG XII QB Rankings

    It's a fair ranking given what he has been through with coaches. Hopefully he breaks out in his last year at QB for the cyclones.

    Re: BIG XII QB Rankings

    I find it odd that KU is picked ahead of us in some places when they have a HUGE question mark at QB. I think they are going to be bad, very bad. Maybe I am overestimating the actual thought the media puts into their picks.

    I agree with AA at 6th. Could be better if he had a consistent system.

    Re: BIG XII QB Rankings

    I was looking up some numbers today and found it interesting that Arnaud's career completion percentage is actually better than Seneca's was. 60.1% to 57.7%.

    He's only 250 some yards shy of becoming the 2nd all time passing yardage leader in Iowa State history behind Bret Meyer. Granted Iowa State's QB history is less than stellar, but he's put together a nice career all things considered. I hope for his sake his senior year gets him some extra recognition.

    Re: BIG XII QB Rankings

    My first take when reading this list, is that either of the qbs from TT are ranked higher than an experienced starter at ISU. Tech may be learning a new system this year, and it may not suit either of these QB's. But let's rank them higher than AA, who will know the offense this year. Also, no mention in AA write up about his injuries last year and how they may have effected his numbers, like they had for others.

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Can't say I disagree w/ this. AA's behind some pretty good QB's.

    Typical out of the media IMO. ISU gets very little if any respect in Iowa let alone in the national media.

    I think it was Miller and Deace that were talking about the Big XII predictions that had ISU dead last in the north. I'm paraphrasing but they said that " How many other BCS teams with a returning Sr QB, Returning leading rusher, 3 of 5 returning OL and won their bowl game would be picked last in their div?" None.

    Its just laziness on the medias part because they spend all of their effort on the top tier, more highly recognized teams (TX, OU, NE etc) and once they get past them its just a crap shoot because most of the people dont care.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    I like Arnaud but his stats are a little inflated with all the screen passes we throw now. That helps out his #'s a ton. We rarely threw passes like that with Seneca. A lot of dumb fade passes.

    Quit bringing reality to my awesome stats.
    Speaking of here's another:

    Arnaud has thrown for more yards, less interceptions and has a better completion percentage than Ricky "Captain America" Stanzi. Love it or leave it, Ricky.

    Re: BIG XII QB Rankings

    I thought the list was pretty fair too. The difference between QB play in the league last year to this coming season is night and day.

    Before I looked on the list I thought to myself, Zac Lee has got to be ranked last or second to last. Then I started to think about it, and sadly for the quality of QB play in the Big 12, he isn't and shouldn't be either.

    I think the top of the league is fantastic, Jones, Gabbert, and the young Texas QB are all first round pics. The kid from A&M might be one as well.
    It is the middle and bottom that isn't very good.
