Today, we begin our 2017 spring primer series and it has nothing to do with spring practice. We start with the Big 12.

- How difficult a job does Matt Rhule face at Baylor? Are they an upper half team in '17?

- Kansas, Iowa State and Texas Tech fall into the bottom tier this fall but which team has the most upward mobility? And what will happen to Kliff Kingsbury?

- Oklahoma is the clear favorite but who are the top contenders to the Sooners?

- TCU and West Virginia have lots of interesting strengths and lots of large question marks. Is the difference coaching? QB play?

- Texas appears to be the surprise upset pick in the Big 12 already. Could Tom Herman actually get Texas to 10 wins in his first season in Austin?

- Does Oklahoma State have enough balance to win the Big 12 and does Kansas State make any sense at all? Ever?
