  1. Fields' suspension is loss for entire Big 12

    David Ubben

    The Big 12 opens 2013 with a pair of neutral-site games against the SEC. Two of the league's title contenders -- TCU and Oklahoma State -- happen to be playing in them, but the Big 12's best returning defender will be on the sidelines. From our ne...

  2. Who should be Kansas State's new QB?

    David Ubben

    We're seeing more quarterback competitions this spring than maybe ever in the Big 12, but Kansas State is hosting one of the best. Replacing a Heisman contender isn't easy, but that's the task ahead for either Daniel Sams or Jake Waters. Who shoul...

  3. Texas Tech: More believers than anticipated

    David Ubben

    Texas Tech returns a moderate amount of talent from an eight-win team a year ago, but not since 2008's 10-0 start and No. 2 BCS ranking has Texas Tech been anything close to a Big 12 contender. I see the Red Raiders being a good team next year wit...

  4. Texas Tech: Big 12 pretender or contender?

    David Ubben

    We've heard from a few of you on teams across the Big 12, but today's poll will focus on another dark horse looming in the Big 12 title race. Texas Tech bounced back from a frustrating five-win season in 2011 to win eight games in 2012 and return ...

  5. Oklahoma: Pretender or contender?

    David Ubben

    Nobody collects Big 12 title crystal bowls more than Oklahoma. The Sooners got another one last season (debate the merits of it all you want, but it resides in the Switzer Center no matter how much you complain) when it shared a Big 12 title with Kan...

  6. Is Oklahoma State a contender or pretender?

    David Ubben

    The polls are still open on Baylor, but today, we'll take a look at another team in the Big 12 eyeing a title. I remember talking with Mike Gundy last spring, just a few months removed from bringing a Big 12 and a Fiesta Bowl trophy, and he touche...

  7. Is Baylor a Big 12 contender or pretender?

    David Ubben

    We've asked you about two Big 12 teams thus far, and the people labeled Texas a "pretender," while casting enough votes to make their voice heard in regards to TCU, who this blog's readers say is a Big 12 title "contender." What about a team from ...

  8. Poll results: Texas a title pretender (barely)

    David Ubben

    I'm really intrigued to see the results of these polls for the teams we examine, but I queued up Texas first. It's entirely possible that no team receives more than 50 percent of the vote as a Big 12 title contender with a league that lacks a true fa...

  9. TCU a Big 12 title contender or pretender?

    David Ubben

    We're back again looking at a different Big 12 team with title aspirations next fall. The Frogs limped (literally) through their first season in the Big 12, dealing with more injuries and personnel losses than any team in the Big 12, but still manage...

  10. Texas Longhorns: Contender or pretender?

    David Ubben

    You can only be inspired by our friends at the ACC Blog, but today, we'll start looking at a few of the Big 12's best teams and asking you the big question: Do you buy them as a Big 12 title contender? Or is any talk of a title simply pretending? ...

  11. Mailbag: Showers, expansion, contenders

    David Ubben

    Thanks for the emails this week, everybody. Here's where you can reach me if you've got more to say. Kit Sanders in Martinsburg, W.Va., writes: There is nooo way that Baylor's essentially backup running back should be higher then Nick Florence. No...

    David Ubben

    Thanks for all the emails this week, everybody. Here's where you can reach me if you've got more to say. Let's get to your mail. Sam Brooks in Overland Park, Kan., writes: David, I saw in your Big 12 stock report that you have Kansas State's st...

  13. Sneaking a peek to Week 12 in the Big 12

    David Ubben

    We've only got three weeks left in the season, but a very odd schedule this week in the Big 12. Here's a look at what you can expect: Kansas State's march continues, and as with any contender, expect lots of talk about how all the undefeateds cou...

  14. Big 12 Power Rankings: Week 3

    David Ubben

    Not as much moving and shaking as you'd think after the reigning Big 12 champs lose. Basically, the Cowboys slipped to the bottom of the pile of teams who could be Big 12 contenders. Iowa State and Texas Tech are a coin flip for now, but Texas Tech's...

    To begin the season, I see six teams with a legitimate chance to win the Big 12. Today we'll continue our series looking at why each team will or will not win the league. Next up: The other new guys -- TCU More contenders: Oklahoma West Virg...
