Accurate as far as ranking teams?  Prolly.  Accurate as far as what's written?  You be the judge:

Last year, he was sure that Daniel Thomas was competing for the QB spot  :rolleyes:

But like SD said, common sense says we'll be worse than NU and Mizzou and certainly not significantly better than ISU, KU, CU.  :dunno:

We'll be in full blown contention for our glass ceiling . . . the Alamo Bowl.

Returning 4/5 starting lineman, the best running back in the Big 12, most likely starting a dual threat quarterback, adding more athleticism overall and our biggest lost being either a TE or CB (mastrud/moore). . . Puts us fifth in the north??? After being one game away from first. Ahh I see that makes sense now.  :blank:

I don't see OSU or KU being better than us. OSU loses everyone and ku loses their greatest coach, greatest QB, and their greatest WR of all time.

srsly. I'm amazed/amused at how much everyone seems to be underestimating the loss of Mangino/Reesing/Meier/Briscoe/Sharp. KU was just absolutely gutted.

I am ok with the rankings, just makes him look like an even bigger dumbass when we finish in the top half of the north, and history keeps waiting for ku.

I loved arguing with the phog about whether it would be harder to replace Gregory or Reesing. Good times.

I still can understand how a coach that was 20-30 (or whatever) in a shitty conference can get hired at a Big 12 school. Maybe UK should join the Mo Valley or MAC?

I don't even wet a finger to turn a page on football previews until the best in the biz, P. Steele, offers us his opinion.

Mr. Steele won me a pitcher of beer when I used his forecast to bet that KSU would finish ahead of ku.

I'm 99% sure Tim Griffin has never ventured North of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Incredible moron who knows nothing of college football.  I believe he's "left" ESPN.com, so this will be he last epic fail re: Big XII football
