    how many big 12 wins?

    Last year we had 3 , but lost 4 by more than 20 points each.
    I forgot how bad we were for much of the big 12 last year.

    I think this year we take another step forward and win 4....

    I think we win 4. 3 or less would be a failure in my opinion.

    finishing 7-6 with a bowl win and assuming wins over @KU, Tech, and Baylor wouldn't be a major failure. Disappointing considering our senior heavy team, but still surpass any expectations.

    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    It would show that we have done nothing to move out of the Big 12 cellar. 3 wins every year in the Big 12 is not good enough. Plus with all on the seniors this year, it will be tough to move up next year.

    4, Tech, KSU, Baylor & KU. Lose to TCU & OSU by less than 10 points, loss by 14 or more to OU, TX & WV. 7-5 Regular season and likely 8-5 with a bowl win in a lower tier bowl. Solid overall season.

    Re: how many big 12 wins?

    I can see 4 conference wins. TCU looked beatable, Kansas State has been close, Tech could be a 3-peat, OK State has the injury bug, Baylor can't find an identity and Kansas is rebuilding.

    TT, KU, KSU, and Baylor at a minimum.

    I think we stay at 3 conference wins are 3 easy games are behind us and our offense has been very underwhelming.

    Re: how many big 12 wins?

    ISU is the type of team that could pretty much beat anybody, and I think there's several teams in the same boat. I don't see a top notch Big12 team this year, and that includes OU/UT.

    WVU can be beat, because their defense is atrocious. Same with OSU. TCU is overrated, and really isn't a top 25 team. UT's defense is a question mark to start this season...they gave up almost over 300 yards to the same Wyoming team that lost to Cal Poly yesterday. UT also gave up more RUSHING yards to the same UNM that Tech only allowed 127 TOTAL to. I think they do have some issues that need to be fixed, for sure. KU is just KU. Who knows what Tech is capable of. OU can be beat, but mainly through a strong passing game. BU won't be the same Baylor they were last year, especially on offense, plus their defense hasn't gotten any better. A lot of teams are in the same boat, and it could take a missed FG, blocked punt, TO, etc. for some of these games to be decided.

    There is just so much parity in the Big12 right now, and we will all beat up each other.

    Our defense has been overwhelming. We will win more than 3 with this defense. Also, our offense will look a lot better when they start limiting the number of turnovers they give up. I still think both units are better than last year.

    I agree with you, but I think we'll upset Texas. I mean "I hope."

    Could see 4-6, with 6 being a real step forward. 4 is the realistic answer I think, but hoping for more.
