    Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    Saw this in Chris' links today.. I figured we'd get some votes but not the majority.



    If you had to remove one more school from the Big 12 other than Colorado or Nebraska, who would you remove?

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    What a riduculous question to ask players. What purpose does it serve, except to belittle some schools and further divide the conference? I applaud Texas for not having their players take part in the poll.
    This would never be done by a newspaper in the Big Ten or SEC.

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    It was apparently a bit skewed towards the South, since Nebraska and Colorado players were excluded. So yeah, naturally most South players probably voted ISU and most North would vote Baylor.

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    There were 28 players who voted...not exactly a representative sampling of the entire conference...

    As I recall, the poll also contained a ridiculous question or two last year as well. Hopefully, next year, all players will be instructed to boycott the stupid poll.

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    Did they at least ask our players this year? I thought last year they did this and none of our players were aware these questions were asked.

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    They always seem to do a stupid poll like that. All players need to follow Texas' lead and refuse to answer those questions.

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    I don't get that poll. If you beat ISU and Baylor 9 out of 10 times, why would you boot them?



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    Kick out a team that just won a bowl game.....more-so than a team that has never even come close to sniffing a bowl game (baylor?) Wow.


    Yes, I know the question in general is just plain stupid, but again....it was asked...and we were the punch line. It is just utter disrespect.

    Re: Big 12: Players answer the tough questions.

    We need to win if we want respect. KSU was in worse shape then ISU before Snyder took over.

    I believe Paul Rhoads will do for ISU what Snyder did for KSU. It isn't to late to change peoples opinions, but we better take advantage of this window of opportunity.

    Agree. Did the paper ask any of the coaches that question? I bet not.
    The Oklahoman took advantage of the players' youth and naivete by burying it in with the others. All of the other questions were informative and entertaining. Someone with a little more age and maturity, like a head coach, would have skipped the question or just got up and walked away.
