    Iowa State has a long history of underachieving.

    That's a bit of an unfair tag. 2 years ago ISU came from no where to take 2nd and made it go down to the last bout in the finals before giving up 1st place.

    The Bobby Douglas years were many years drenched in underachievment. Cael has had one good year and then didnt improve on it last season. They were leapfrogged by Iowa, Ohio State and Penn State.

    I have to agree with both Cornell and Iowa State. I also wouldn't discount my Tigers, since all three AAs are returning, some stellar recruits (Dom Bradley) are coming off redshirt, and Tony Pescaglia will return from injury.

    Cael had 7 AA's last year you doofus, lack of bonus points, and key losses here and there dropped them a little in the final standings, but 7 AA's still makes an exceptional year.

    Agreed. Iowa, ISU, tOSU, Cornell, Mizzou. Nebraska, Minny, and OSU could easily break top 5. The top 10 will be a dogfight, just like this year, and whoever is firing on all cylinders will win it.

    Now Jensen, leave me something to say.

    Two of the three huge point scorers from 2007 graduated, and the other one mad the finals again. ISU was one single match, no six seconds, away from getting second place. Not to mention a second Big 12 title in as many years.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    I'd have to go with Iowa State and the Buckeyes. No doubt the Hawks are loaded but they will also lose Perry and he annually accounted for big points.
