By Steven Lassan, 3 months 3 weeks ago
The Big 12 didn’t experience a ton of turnover in the coordinator ranks this offseason, but there were a few big changes to watch in 2017.

It goes without saying that you need a good quarterback in order to be a successful college football team. While it may not wholly determine a team’s success each season if they have a quality signal-caller behind center, one doesn’t become a consistent winner without a quarterback making all the throws and executing the right decisions on offense.   That’s why the...

By Steven Lassan, 3 months 3 weeks ago
Predictions for any FBS conference and all 130 college football teams are an inexact science. Some teams are just a bigger mystery than others or a hard program to get a read on for the upcoming year. Coaching changes, transfers, players returning from injury, scheme tweaks or just overall depth chart concerns make any preseason prediction difficult for a number of teams. While any FBS team...

Offense should not be an issue for Oklahoma State this season with quarterback Mason Rudolph and wide receiver James Washington leading what should be a prolific attack whether the Cowboys decide to throw or run the ball. The defense returns only five starters, but it’s not short on athleticism and the coaching staff is optimistic about the unit’s potential. Oklahoma State has some...

Top 25 Big 12 2018 NFL Draft Prospects to Watch

By Allen Kenney, 4 months 3 weeks ago
A grand total of 14 players from the Big 12 were selected in last weekend’s NFL draft, so a top 25 list for next season seems like either overkill or wishful thinking.   Frankly, a few of the names below are serious reaches – especially the underclassmen. That being said, the quality quotient of those likely to hear their names called appears high. It wouldn’t...
