    This is a brutal exercise for me. But here:

    1. OU - not sure how they lost to the cows
    2. ISU - you're on the cusp, boys
    3. WVU - probably one too high
    4. UT - probably one too low
    5. TxT - officially cryin'
    for the bottom half, put 'em in a hat, shake and see how they fall out 'cause I haven't a clue and no one else cares.

    OU -- the defense might actually be okay now
    ISU -- coming for you like the killer in a slasher movie
    WVU -- still has most of its moxie left
    TTU -- Kliff is perfect (not good enough to win, not bad enough to get fired)
    OSU -- pretty good for a notionally rebuilding year
    Texas -- Texas suckssss Texas succkkkssss
    TCU -- really getting to the bottom of the barrel here
    Baylor -- don't look, you'll go blind
    Kansas State -- I think this really is the end for ole Bill
    Kansas -- beating a collapsing TCU squad was... nice?

    It’s clear the recruiting in this conference is OU and UT, followed by a big gap and then several bunched together.

    OU- Murray is the best player in the country combined with one of the best OCs. Fired Stoops several years too late.

    UT- should have enough talent to overcome Herman’s coaching and win a lot of close games

    ISU- if special teams and the offense were more reliable, could be the top team in the conference. With Butler, DM, Kene, and Purdy the talent is there. At times we’re a square peg in a round hole.

    WVU- Above average talent with good coaching. Their offense should keep them in most games and their defense is good enough

    TT- WVU with a young coach.

    Ok St- Should be higher and Gundy is still one of the best. When their OL plays well their offense can beat anyone but OU.

    KSU- Snyder is hanging on to the 70s. Anyone not name OU will have trouble as they can play keep away with a good OL and running back.

    Baylor- A tough out, assuming their QBs don’t go 1-8 with 3 INTs

    TCU- That 3rd quarter of the OSU game exemplifies TCU.

    KU- ****, if not for that Nichols St loss, Adidas may be extending Beaty. Most talented KU team in a decade.

    This. We need to beat UT to move up. And while KU can feel good about the W, TCU simply dumped their drawers at the end of the game. OU might actually become a top team if their defense does improve.

    Yeah, OU getting rid of Mike Stoops may bring a lot of money to conference team coffers. ;)

    If you're basing it off the entire season, yes, KU is probably at the bottom.

    However, if you go by how each team is playing RIGHT NOW.... KU could arguably be put ahead of KSU, Baylor, and TCU IMO. I'm not necessarily saying they should be, but an argument could be made.

    Wonder what the coaching approach has been for OU's defense.

    I'd think giving them some freedom would help since the speed is already there.

    Eh, KU had one good game, but they have been losing handily to most others in the middle of the big 12, and will probably get blown out in 3 of their final 4 games (ISU\KSU\OU\UT). Id be willing to put them above TCU this week, but only if we're putting TCU at the bottom.

    Baylor might be a little better than their record, there's not a lot of data in how they've played the middle. they've played KU\KSU on the bottom, and UT, WV, and OU on the top. No real data in the middle

    KSU is about on par with Baylor- lost slightly to Baylor but they beat OSU, and otherwise they share the same losses- getting beat soundly by UT\WV\OU.

    I'd go

    OU
    ISU
    Texas
    WV
    OSU
    TTU
    Baylor
    Kansas State
    Kansas
    TCU

    This may be crazy talk, but I would put KU above TCU at this point. TCU has too many injuries and other issues that are plaguing them, & I think the loss vs KU will result in a continued slide for the rest of the season.

    My only contribution is that WV is better than UT. Outside of that: OU is at the top, then WV ISU UT in some order, then OSU & Tech in some order, and Baylor, U of K, & KSU at the bottom in some order.

    I wish KU was switched with TCU on our schedule, losing that game is going to drop us a game vs. anyone with a pulse in the league.

    Im rooting for TCU to win at Baylor and home vs okie to help ISU's perception but thats probably not feasible.

    I think we want OU, if tech wins then we want wvu to beat Oklahoma.
