    Eighteen Texans (based on high school) between the offensive and defensive teams. Just insane.

    Bryce Brown was named first team without ever playing a down in the B12. Cute.

    Re: Preseason All Big 12 team

    How many times will OSU actually punt? Can their punter get enough action to really "qualify" as a choice?

    I wonder what the ratio of population (Texas/All Big 12 states) versus representation on the first team preseason all big 12 is?

    18/26*100 = 75% Texas rep on 1st Team B12
    (edit: oops - they have 12 players on the first team offense so the numbers should be: 18/27*100 = 67%)

    Using data from Wikipedia:
    Texas pop: 25.1 million
    Oklahoma 3.7m
    Kansas 2.8m
    Missouri 6.0m
    Iowa 3.0m
    (Texas pop)/(Big 12 pop) = 25.1m/40.6m*100 = 62%

    So we should expect to see 62%, and observed is 67%. That's seems reasonable. I thought there would be a higher representation from Texas due to the culture that starts kids playing tackle football at a young age.

    A problem with my numbers here is that I'm sure there are kids from states outside the 5 states of the Big12 that made the 1st team. Need some ISU statistic help - does that invalidate my work?

    And has landed squarely in Bill Snyder's doghouse for taking the summer off instead of participating in "voluntary" summer drills.
