    Big 12 North Champion

    Who is your pick? Tim Griffin can't decide, although he says he likes KU's offense and NU's defense. I think KU has the edge. Should be a nasty offense.

    Who's going to win the North Division? Heck, I don't know - Big 12 - ESPN

    Tim Griffin has pretty good blog. Check him out if you are missing Big 12 football as much as I am.

    I'm sure its been said before, but I am thrilled that Tim Griffin is with ESPN.com now. Dude is very good. I hope that whatever version of local sports KXNO has in the future, Tim is part of the regular guest list.

    Re: Big 12 North Champion

    I see it shaking out as this...

    1. Nebraska
    2. Kansas
    3. Colorado
    4. Iowa State
    5. Missouri
    6. Kansas State

    Yes, a little bold to be putting us 4th but I think this team is going to squeak out some games they couldn't last year because they'll actually play like they care. No more of this "cold blooded killer" mentality that Chizik wanted. These guys will get up and play some football then ride the wave of any momentum they create.

    As for the winner of the North I have to go with the longtime Defense > Offense argument for championships.

    I'm sticking to it. I think they're going to fall back to earth this year simply because they have to restart on offense (even with the coordinator) and their defense has never been anything that could win/keep them in games.

    1. Kansas

    3. Missouri
    4. Iowa State
    5. Colorado
    6. Kansas State

    This isn't a guess. This is how it is going to be.

    Re: Big 12 North Champion

    I agree with the previouse posters about Tim Griffin's blog. If any of you haven't checked it out yet you need to. He updates it about 4 times a day and his lunch-time links are great.

    Here is my prediction:

    1. Nebraska: Defense will be solid (for Big 12 standards). Offensive line will be good and have good running backs. QB is a question mark, but Zac Lee was highly recruited and Shawn Watson has a history of getting good play out of his QB's.
    2. Mizzou: A LOT of holes to fill on offense, but return some solid playmakers (Derek Washington and Sean Witherspoon). Plus their recent success and exposure has helped them upgrade their recruiting in recent years
    3. Kansas: Reesing, Briscoe, and Meier are good, but they lost a lot on the offensive line (and their line last year wasn't very good) and they lost all 3 linebackers who were at least 2 year startes. Plus they have the brutal Big 12 South schedule of Texas, OU, and Texas Tech. Tech will be down, but they play the game in Lubbock
    4. Iowa State: They played a lot of inexperienced guys last year especially at the skill positions. That should pay off this year and the next few. Defense needs to improve dramatically. Even with an ugrade in coaching staff it is tough to transition because of new philosopies, terminology, etc... ISU better do well this year because they get the brutal Big 12 south schedule in 2010 and 2011.
    5. Colorado: Not convinced Hawkins will ever get the job done at Colorado. Major issues at QB.
    6. K-State: Ron Prince ran them into the ground. They have very little talent and virtually no depth. It will be a miracle if Snyder can get it turned around again.
