When Art Briles arrived at Baylor after the 2007 season, he inherited a team that won just seven games in the two years prior to his arrival. Even though Briles recorded back-to-back 4-8 marks in his first two seasons, there was no doubt he would eventually get the program on the right track. Mission accomplished. Baylor has won 29 games over the last three years and claimed the Big 12 title in 2013.

The Big 12 didn’t have a banner year in 2013 with only three teams finishing in the final Associated Press poll. Baylor, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State combined for 32 victories last season, while the rest of the conference combined for 38 wins. While last season left a lot to be desired, the Sooners defeated Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, and Kansas State has momentum after a strong close to the year.

Football is king in the SEC, but outside of pockets in Lexington and Gainesville, basketball never feels like a pressing issue.

The Big Ten, on the other hand, is where a balance between football and basketball success is trending upward. The league doesn’t have the names of the new ACC — Krzyzewski, Boeheim, Williams and soon Pitino — but Tom Izzo, Bo Ryan, John Beilein and Thad Matta stack up with any roster of basketball coaches in the country.

On the football side, a league that appeared to have few top 10-caliber programs in the preseason produced one that spent much of the season there (Baylor) and another that finished there by defeating Alabama in the Sugar Bowl (Oklahoma).

In basketball, Kansas, as usual, is atop the standings, but the league has shown impressive depth with teams like Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas State and Iowa State all surprising through the course of the year.
