"As a rule, a man's a fool. When it's hot, he wants it cool. When it's cool, he wants it hot. Never wanting what he's got." - Grandpa Barton.
Calling either us or West Virginia a lock is ridiculous. We have seen both teams tripping over themselves this season.
Against teams the level of Tulsa and Syracuse? Not so much. Both teams struggles occurred against top 30 (sagarin rated) teams, which is what the big 12 is primarily composed of. Having those kinds of struggles in no way means ISU or WVU will struggle against teams rated in the 50s . The only reason tulsa looks 'good' to some is because they won the 13th best conference out of 12 FBS conferences (FCS MVC is actually rated higher). I'm pretty sure we could look good too playing a schedule full of teams worse than kansas. Between syracuse and tulsa combined there is one game against the top 30 rated teams, and it is a loss.
