    college live top 25 football teams

    college live posted their top 25 football teams for the coming fall season .six big 12 teams made the college live top 25:

    oklahoma-no. 5
    west virginia-no.11
    kansas state-no.13
    tcu-no.14
    okie state-no.21
    texas-no 22

    looks like our conference does pretty well by having 6 out of 25 teams making college live's preseason 25 poll. i personally think texas will be the surprise team in the big 12..

    do you think west virginia and tcu will be this high when the fall 2012 season starts???what r your thoughts on kansas state being ranked as high as they are???
    i think they are somewhat high in their ranking..

    I think TCU will do ok, not 14 though. I think playing in a real conference will be a wake up.

    Texas will be national champs in a couple years. They have good talent they were just young last year.

    I actually think WVA could go higher.

    Don't see how Texas can ever be a surprise. They are either great or underperforming.

    IF texas can get a workable QB, and that is a big if, I agree that Texas may be a surprise team this year. If they have the problems on offense they had last year I don't see much more than another 8 win season for them. ISU beat more ranked teams last year than Texas, that will have to change for them and I really don't see how they are going to be that much better.

    WVU I think will be a little worse than many expected. They remind me of Nebraska. People thought Nebraska would win the Big in the first year and they really didn't even come close. Too much change for WVU that they won't be able to prepare for. I see them with 9 wins.

    Re: college live top 25 football teams

    west virginia's strength is their quarterback.
    texas will have two very good running backs in soph malcolm brown and in their freshman recruit johnathan gray. if gray is able to stay healthy, he could be one one the best backs ever at texas. he is silky smooth ,has good vision, and can take it to the bank from anywhere on the field.. he is quick,shifty, and once he breaks the line of scrimmage he can take the ball all the way. that is why i say texas could be a real surprise this coming fall..

    You have to have more than just good backs to win games. See Troy Davis or see the Vikings a few years ago. Texas is very lacking for a QB. Their OL was better last year but was still pushed around too much. And the receivers had a hard time catching balls when they were on the money. Let's be honest, if it wasn't for their defense Texas would not have gone to a bowl game last season.

    Re: college live top 25 football teams

    Kstate should have been in a BCS game last year, Klein does it all for them and Synder is the best coach in the league. Last season's record plus his rep is why they are rated so high, I dont see them as good as last year but they can beat anyone in the big 12. WV has the potential to be the best team in the conference, I could see them being a lot like Okie St last season. TCU will be fine but will lose a game or two they shouldn't. IMO they are a top 25 team, but maybe more lower teens than on that list. I see Texas making a similar jump to what they did between '10 and '11, they will contend for the conference title.

    I actually am going to share my own.
    Oklahoma No. 5 - didn't hear a lot so I'm gonna go with the experts at espns opinion
    West Virginia No. 7 - defense matters, but in the big 12, there's not much defense.
    Kansas State No. 16 - klein is like tebow with throwing accuracy
    TCU No. 25 - also didn't hear a lot, but OU and TCU are two very different programs
    OSU No. 19 - The running backs will dominate
    Texas Unranked - ik they wont be, but just because there Texas and they have a decent team, doesn't mean they should be ranked.

    Probably not. We could go undefeated in the SEC and be no. 25 MAYBE
