    Overrated and Underrated Big 12 Teams

    Most Overrated

    1. Baylor - RGIII can't live up to the hype he has. He reminds me of Jerrod Johnson at A&M last year.

    2. Texas A&M - What they have done to get ranked so high I don't know. They remind me of Nebraska last year.

    3. Texas - They were bad last year. How have they improved?

    4. Oklahoma - They will be really good, but I think they will choke eventually.

    Most Underrated

    1. Kansas - I think they might surprise some people this year. They just give me that feeling.

    2. Iowa State - Always disrespected from everyone, but should have a solid team.

    3. Kansas State - Bill Snyder always puts together a good team.

    Teams that will perform as expected

    1. Oklahoma State - They will be good.

    2. Missouri - Will be solid. Probably a seven win team.

    3. Tech - Probably a six or seven win team too.

    Re: Overrated and Underrated Big 12 Teams

    I'd move Kansas and Oklahoma into the "Teams that will perform as expected" category and possibly move Mizzou into "Overrated".

    Agreed on Baylor. Yes, they won 7 games last year, but those wins came against Sam Houston State (6-5), Buffalo (2-10), Rice (4-8), Kansas (3-9), Colorado (5-7), Kansas State (7-6), and Texas (5-7). Not overall convincing. Especially when the fact is added on that they gave up 38, 42, 45, 45, 53, and 55 points in each of their 6 losses in 2010.

    This is immaterial; haven't you heard? R Gesus III will be playing defense this year too!

    Re: Overrated and Underrated Big 12 Teams

    if mizzou only wins 7 games that is under-achieving. most people peg them at 10 wins i bet

    Re: Overrated and Underrated Big 12 Teams

    RG3 got Baylor to a bowl game while playing in the Big 12 south division.

    Good enough for me.

    Move Baylor and Tech to slightly overrated(I don't think they are ridiculously overrated, but I don't see them lighting it up a ton more than they did last year). Move Oklahoma and Kansas to perform as expected. Move ISU to slightly underrated. We won't do as bad as most are predicting us, but I don't think we have the stuff to go bowling given our schedule. Everything else looks good.

    OU will be great, maybe not NC great, but they should win the B12 fairly easily. OSU and Mizzou will be solid. Texas is overrated(not surprising given the media love affair with the horns), especially given Heisman shoe-in Garrett Gilbert is still starting.

    Baylor went 1-4 against Big 12 South division teams. I'm not impressed.

    Re: Overrated and Underrated Big 12 Teams

    Based off of the Baylor game on right now, there is no way in hell that they are overrated. 47 points in 2.5 quarters some buddy better take out RGIII and whoever there RB is before we play them or we could be in a world of hurt. I had that game marked as a win but I may have to take that back with what I am seeing.

    Meh. They look really great right now, but they won't last IMO.


    I could be completely wrong though.

    Still riding this opinion? I'm not. Baylor solidly belongs in the Underrated category.

    Re: Overrated and Underrated Big 12 Teams

    Baylor is definitely the most overrated team in the Big 12. And no way that RGIII is half as good as he is supposed to be...

    That said, there is a long season ahead. Last year, Dernard Robinson was supposed to win the Heisman after the 1st week.
