    How far out is this program from competing for Big 12 titles?

    Was wondering what everyone thought? With the change to a round robin next season and the introduction of a new quarterback, along with likely two new guys on the oline and at safety, I would say we are about 2-3 seasons away.

    I think it just gets harder with Colorado and Nebraska leaving..

    Well, technically, we were 1 bad pass away.
    Had we have beaten NU last night, we would have been in 1st place of the North with 2 winnable games left.

    NU and CU leaving is my biggest concern......And I agree we were a 2 point conversion away this season, but what will a lack of divisions do for our chances?

    With CPR at the helm, who knows? No way I figured him for 12 wins in less than two seasons. He does nothing but exceed expectations. Could happen as soon as next year.

    I'm assuming Texas isn't going to stay down.. and Oklahoma is obviously good. Mizzou isn't too bad themselves...

    I think our best chance is having that easy north division then winning that one game at the end...

    I say we have a year of rebuilding a little next year, the next season is an up and then I think we will be competing for Big 12 titles consistently. That is provided we do everything we can to keep Rhoads here.

    Re: How far out is this program from competing for Big 12 titles?

    great thread.

    something to keep in mind: kansas state. It took bill snyder until 2003 to get his first big 12 championship. they didn't even win the big 12 nor go to a BCS bowl in 1998 despite a #1 national ranking during the championship game and an 11-0 season.

    Winning the conference is such a tall order. It can take many years. Mizzou had an 11-1 season and #1 ranking only get **** stomped by oklahoma in the championship game.

    The "Haves Nots" have such a mountain to climb. It won't come over night. And it might be 5 years yet.

    Now, if you just mean "compete" like top 3-5 finish... hell, next year could be our year.

    Lack of divisions will make it harder. With the way it's set up now, you can lose to teams not in your division, and still make the Champ. game, just by beating teams in your division. The way it's moving to, every game matters just as much as the next. There are no more "easy rotations" with the round robin format.

    It will be tougher with 10 teams and no divisions, but if by "compete" you mean, "be in the conversation", I think within the next couple of years. I think top 4, having a shot at it with 3 or 4 games left defines "compete" for me.
