  1. 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 ...

  2. 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...

    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...

    Texas was labeled a Big 12 title "pretender" in our poll this week, despite winning nine games last season and bringing back the second-most starters in the Big 12. Our readers, however, are much more sold on the prospects of TCU, which went 7-6 i...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

    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? ...
