    ESPN Voepel breaks down big 12

    Very, very disappointed by her write up. Not a Big 12 breakdown, more like a OU promo, it was all about OU. Puke. Baylor only got a couple sentences. I expect better from Voepel.

    Re: ESPN Voepel breaks down big 12

    that link takes me to a high school sports section ... can't find the story.

    got a different one?

    The high school story was probably written better.

    Re: ESPN Voepel breaks down big 12

    You're right...I'm not really sure how they can sell that as a 'Big 12 Breakdown' (I wasn't even convinced they were until I found the link to the article from the main WBB page).

    Re: ESPN Voepel breaks down big 12

    At least the article mentions us. There are 5(!) schools in the Big 12 NOT mentioned in the article.

    Re: ESPN Voepel breaks down big 12

    I almost wonder if she initially wrote it as a standalone article about OU, and ESPN asked her to turn it into a Big 12 preview.

    That was my initial thought exactly. Smells like the work of an editor, as Voepel is usually pretty solid.


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    Or she wrote it as a OU piece and ESPN linked it as a Big 12 preview. Notice the title on the page doesn't even sound like a preview.
