    What are you hoping to see from Big XII teams in Week 1?

    So what is everybody hoping to see across the Big XII this weekend? Here's my thoughts


    Texas Tech @ SMU; Friday @ 7:30PM
    I'd like to see Tech struggle but pull away late (this is going to be the case for a lot of these). I want to see the mid-tier Big XII teams showing weakness so I feel better about our ability to beat them later on but generally I'd like to see them win because I want to see the conference look good.

    FCS #1 NDSU @ Kansas State; Friday @ 7:30PM
    Basically the same comments as for Tech, especially since NDSU is arguably as good or better than SMU. NDSU keeping it close or maybe even having a small lead in the first half but wearing down and eventually losing by a touchdown or two.

    William & Mary @ West Virginia; Friday @ 11:00AM
    Doesn't seem fair that WVU would schedule a game against just two people.


    Mississippi St @ #13 Oklahoma State; Saturday @ 2:30PM
    Want to see OSU hang half a hundred on them. Screw the SEC

    LA Monroe @ #16 Oklahoma; Saturday @ 6:00PM

    Same as for Tech and K-State. I'd like to see Oklahoma exposed a bit but pull away with a convincing win.

    FCS #5 Wofford @ Baylor; Saturday @ 6:30PM

    Will be pulling for Wofford here because lol Baylor.

    New Mexico State @ #15 Texas; Saturday @7:00PM

    Will actually be pulling for Texas to dominate start to finish. A strong Texas is good for the Big XII. And what's good for the Big XII is good for Iowa State. Besides, it'll be more fun if they are ranked in the top 5 when we beat them.

    FCS #16 UNI @ Iowa State; Saturday @7:00PM


    #12 LSU @ #20 TCU; Saturday @ 8:00PM
    TCU knocking off LSU would be awesome. I'll be pulling for TCU hard here, preferably with a convincing win. Just like Texas, it'll be more fun if they are ranked highly when we beat them. Plus as always screw the SEC.

    I'd like to see KSU, Tech, Baylor and OU lose. The rest I'm indifferent on other than ISU of course.

    Run the table and make it convincing. Conference strength is necessary.

    Really pulling for TCU to take down the bayou kitties. I think Okie Lite will roll Miss St.

    By Monday I want people walking around chanting BIG12, BIG12, BIG12 instead of SEC, SEC, SEC.

    I'm hoping to see a strong showing by all the Big 12 teams in the pre-conference. The conference doesn't seem to be getting much respect right now...

    Side note, did I hear correctly that they will be showing highlights of other games on the Godzillatron this season? That would be very nice this Saturday with TCU kicking off at 8.

    I'm hoping TCU has a crowd that isn't proLSU. Also hoping the Big 12 wins all of their games, good for strength of schedule to have a winning conference.

    I'm actually nervous KSU will lose.

    While I'd like to see all those teams being down this year (which is why I'd like to see them struggle in the first halves before wearing down their opponents through depth) I want to see them all win by 10+ by the end of their games. Except Baylor. Because Baylor is Baylor is Baylor.

    Why should I change my name? He is the one that sucks!


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    One of those two people is a girl too. That's weak sauce.

    I really want to see TCU beat LSU. I'm not big into the conference respect angle in little games, but this is a biggie. I want an OSU win as well.

    I want to see ISU and KSU put the hammer down on FCS schools and see Baylor lose.

    The rest I'm indifferent and just want them to win for the conference.
