    Re: Big 12 Predictions

    Please revise, and make one of those teams go undefeated so we can finally see a Big 12 team play in the BCS title game.

    Wow, I just noticed your bold predictions. Tech and WVU at 1-8 in the conference, both below KU? That's out there.

    I'm not sure how good Tech is supposed to be this year, but I could see WVU finishing behind KU.

    If WVU does that bad , I'm not sure their coach will still be employed.

    Re: Big 12 Predictions

    Gutsy picks with Tech and West Virginia. I could actually see West Virginia doing that poorly if there defense doesn't make huge improvement and if they struggle to replace their offensive studs. Disagree with Tech though. I don't think they'll be great, especially in year 1 for Kingsbury, but I would be stunned if they didn't make a bowl game.

    Do you have TCU winning @OSU, @OU, or vs Texas? And I assume you have them winning @KSU, LSU and vs Baylor

    Yeah I agree those are some wild predictions. I think OU and UT should be the favorites at this point. OSU has potentional. Im not going to cout out KSU but they are sure to be down from last year, Im guessing closer to 8 wins. KU will win a game but I think they will still be at the bottom. WVU could be that bad. they came close last year with more tallent. I know everyone is high on TCU but I dont think they will do much more than make a bowl. much like last year. Baylor I see middle of the pack.

    Re: Big 12 Predictions

    Haven't gone game to game, but here's how I would rank the conference, top to bottom:

    1: Texas (get OSU in Austin)
    2: OSU (get most of the favorites in Stillwater)
    3: OU (reload on O, rebuild on D)
    4: TCU (Great D, good QBs)
    5: Baylor (Seastrunk, mediocre D)
    6: Tech (rebuilding project continues)
    7: KSU (lost enough talent to be 9th, but coaching will lift them up)
    8: WVU (offense will still be very good)
    9: ISU (no stars on O, lost stars on D)
    10: KU (if JC recruits are good, they could be 9)

    I don't like you picking ISU 9th. I'm not saying it is wrong, I just don't like it.

    Unfortunately, I am going to have to say ISU wins 5 games this year. If ISU gets 6 and a bowl I will be tickled.

    Re: Big 12 Predictions

    I'm pretty interested in what KU does... They've been bringing in some nice recruits, and Weis can make QB's look much much better than they are.
