    I can't fault this one. I think we go 6-6 or 7-5 this season and think all of the games above would be tough wins for Baylor this season.

    Rhule is the major unknown here, imo. He's got a big uphill battle to wage though.

    I've got them pegged the same. I think they'll be a tough out, but experienced depth will be the challenge for the bears.

    I also think the conference is a shit ton harder this year than the past two.

    My thoughts on ISU:

    2-1 OOC(losing to Iowa)
    2-7 IC.

    Other than KU, I don't really know who they'd beat except maybe Tech. They tend to sneak up on someone once every year.

    4-8.

    Iowa will be a toss-up in Ames. They have a big question mark at QB and no receivers to speak of. If we hold their run game in check, we win.

    We should have beat KSU the last two seasons and if our OL is adequate, they are beatable even in Manhattan. I think Tech will suck so that will be another winnable game.

    Baylor will have a new QB, a new pro-style offense and little to no quality depth. I can see them flaming out this season and being beatable in Waco. We had them beat in Ames last season and let it get away at the end.

    TCU and Texas should both be better this season but ISU could pull an upset against one of them in Ames. Same with Okie St in Ames, had them on the ropes in Stillwater last season.

    I predict 6-6.

    CTP, your post is exactly why I try to make these threads. It's very informative.

    I think you are skewing things is ISUs favor a bit, but I would expect the same of all of us here and our respective programs.

    Baylor: 3-0 OOC, 2-7 Big 12 (wins over KU and Tech)
    I think the Bears might actually be better than last year's team but the schedule is brutal during the first half of conference play. I kind of expect the team, with a new system, new coach, etc., to be demoralized by the Texas game. But... if it turns out that Grier is overrated at WVU, then maybe Baylor gets a win there for Homecoming and gets on a roll instead of getting rolled. If everything breaks absolutely right, I could see Baylor winning 8 or 9 games. I just don't see it.


    Iowa St: 3-0 OOC, 3-6 Big 12 (wins over KU, Tech, and Baylor)
    I think ISU sweeps OOC slate including a win over the Hawkeyes. Cyclones were much better at the end of last year than at the start. And Iowa struggles in Ames. I don't think Ferentz' kid would be talking trash on ISU in the media, re: recruiting, if he weren't worried about the Cyclones.

    The Texas game will be a big one. Horns might be looking past ISU a little bit and Herman teams have a tendency to not get up for games that aren't big games. He might also have a very legit QB problem this year, too. So I think Texas wins but if that goes the other way, and if TCU doesn't make the big jump at QB that I'm expecting from them, then ISU probably has a chance to get in that 8-9 win range, too.


    Bottom line is I don't see a wide margin between Big 12 #4-8. QB play, how the schedule sets up, and team health will be big. I like what OU, OSU, KSU, and WVU have at QB.

    I'm going 5-7 for the Cyclones.

    KU - 2-1, 1-8 = 3-9

    KU: 3-0 OOC; 1-8 Big 12; 4-8 overall. (I think the Jayhawks beat Tech and lose the rest.)

    I see ISU going 2-1 in OOC, but only 2-7 in conference (wins against KU and UT), so 4-8.

    KU, I have 3-0 in OOC and 0-9 in conference. 3-9.
