    Let's see if we can't get something going here as the league meetings close.
    1. OU - although I'm anxious to see if the youngster can without Bobby's QB
    2. WVU - best offense in the league but ole Dana still on the sidelines
    3. ISU - best running back, journeyman QB, stout defense
    4. K-State - because they get Texas in MHK
    5. Texas - better be better
    6. TCU - Gary lost too much for all the pundit credits
    7. TxT - defense a marvel by Tech standards
    8. Baylor - surely thump Ku again and get oSu in Waco
    9. oSu - rebuild for Pokes like Clones hoops the season past
    10. Ku - just a matter of time with Homer at the helm

    I still think OSU will be fine even with a new QB. Hill is electric. 2-7 up for grabs with KU, Tech, and Baylor at 10-9-8

    This actually could very well happen if Snyder dies in the next month (actuarial tables give that a 20% chance) and his psycho son takes over.

    My prediction on this prediction? In July 2019, you will be the subject of the following thread title: "Worst post of the past year? I got CycloneErik" -- Guess who will be the OP?

    I would almost never cheer for someone to die.......but this is tempting. I respect Snyder too much though

    In all seriousness, though.

    I'd go like this:

    1) OU
    2) WVU
    3) TCU
    4) Texas
    5) Iowa State
    6) K-State
    7) Ok-St
    8) Baylor
    9) TTU
    10) KU

    Like everyone has said, 4-7 is fluid.

    Not bad...not sure I'm completely sold on WVU yet. Swap ISU w/Texas and Ok-St w/K-State.

    The firepower is there for WVU. I thought that last year, too but now that Grier is a year older I think its a little different. I'm just not sure what OK-St has at QB and that could be the difference. Gundy said during B12 media days that the Hawaii guy wasn't the starter even though he has the most experience.

    As others have posted, 2-7 seem to be a roll of the dice. I would not be surprised to see five teams tied for third.

    1. OU
    2. WVU
    3. ISU
    4. TCU
    5. OSU
    6. Texas
    7. KSU
    8. Baylor
    9. TTU
    10. KU

    Okay, here's the results of our preseason ISU fan +1 poll:

    1. OU
    2. ISU
    3. WVU
    4. TCU
    5. Texas
    6. oSu
    7. BU
    8. TxT
    9. K-State
    10. Ku

    I'd say that overall, biases aside and discounted accordingly, it's probably not far off. ISU homer-high. K-State rival-low. OU and Ku well placed. Thanks for playing.

    I did a quick run-through w/ game-by-game picks for all team schedules, but I haven’t finalized the process. Here’s a rough snapshot based partly on that and partly projected “power rank.” I’ll have an official one in a couple of weeks.

    1. Oklahoma
    2. TCU
    3. Texas
    4. West Virginia
    5. Iowa State, Kansas State, Oklahoma State
    8. Texas Tech
    9. Baylor
    10. Kansas
