You know the Big XII made some modest gains last year. OK beat tOSU and made the playoffs. If nothing else at least our conference is a lot better than the Pac XII. Hey, we need something to cheer about lol. And we finished ahead of the ACC in bowl season last year. As for the rest of the conference...... WV, OSU, and TCU I'm going to wait and see. WV is one of only 2 Big XII schools, Texas being the other, to play 2 P5 schools in non con games. TCU plays tOSU on 9/15 the following weekend they play us. I just don't know about OSU they have to replace a qb who started for 4 years. OK at the very least will be in an NYS bowl. Let's face it time Big XII needs, actually desperately needs, for TX to be great again. We'll have the defense but will we have enough for the playoffs or at least an an NYS bowl? Were a year away. I'm sorry but I predict the Big XII will miss the playoffs again. Hopefully TX and OK will at least be good enough to make an NYS bowl.
