    Can't say I disagree. ISU squeaked past Kansas last year when, frankly, we should have blown them out of the water. The Jayhawks have improved this season even if their 1-9 record doesn't show it. Remember 2007 when we were 1-8 heading into our last three games and upset Kansas State and Colorado at home? It happens.

    Cant say I disagree either. It is kind of weird though to hear us be the team im upset alert instead of being the team to pull the upset.

    He predicted us to lose to Tech and OSU. Not exactly 'cursed' if you ask me.

    How many times has Iowa State been part of his upset alert this season? Like, 7?

    Ubben is biased against ISU for some reason. I don't know why.

    I'm going to guess the people that troll his chat weekly don't help any.

    I think he has mentioned ISU a lot more this year in those random stat lists he makes than years past. I don't think he's biased - I just think compared to the rest of the conference we aren't that good and to pretend otherwise is foolish.

    A ridiculous amount of this message board thinks we should be the underdogs anyway. I personally had this game on upset watch all season. The Kansas games haven't been pretty the last two seasons.
