It's a sad day, and an even sadder confrence, when Kansas State is the best team in your confrence.

Get real. Have a real confrence and you can talk smack about who is the best.

And they didn't even spell "conference" correctly!!

I think we would be ranked #7 based on the Sagarin ELO_CHESS value.

Looks like the key is whether we play at home or away.

Makes total sense. I just don't think we can beat a good team on the road.

Yeah, it puts way too much weight on home field. Our toughest remaining games are all at home (other than KU, obviously).

  It's only gonna get worse guys the more we win the more they're gonna downplay our schedule and the big 12.If iirc UCLA had to lose on the final game in 98 to even give us a shot to win the ccg and play for the NC.They are gonna do the same to Klein and his Heisman hopes, from now on he can have stellar performances but they will find someone who plays for a half ass decent team that has a good game and move him ahead of Klein.The only glimmer of hope I have comes because we did pass up media darling ND in the polls and the hope that maybe just maybe there may be some sentiment to reward HCBS for what he has done.All we can do is just win baby just win

I mean, that would be great for asserting the Big XII's dominance over the SEC, but not much else.

i'm more worried about the scenario where alabama and oregon are both undefeated and we are 3rd and mumped.
