    the big 12 is gunna be jumbled this year in who has THE team. texas has a very young team who did very good last year, oklahoma is always good, oklahoma state is hurting without weeden, tcu is looking rough, iowa state will be decent, kansas state will be good with their defense, kansas should definitely be better tham last year (hopefully), wvu will struggle with defense and losing the o-line will hurt, texas tech will be better, and baylor will be good if they find someone to replace rg3

    i give it to either texas or ou

    OU has the best chance to win the conference. But we need to keep our eye out on WVU and Texas. I just got done watching hours of WVU footage and they make me sweat a little.

      Born and raised in WV and have followed their football ups and downs. Give them a chance and stay positive. We do have a candidate for the big H trophy. Go Smith!!!!!
