We'll find out when they play K-St.
I think we will know before that.
The Big 12 is a horse race, I'm just curious how good their horse is, is he a full head above the rest or just a nose. Saturday will be revelatory of both WVU and Baylor, neither who have cemented an identity for 2012 just yet.
Saturday, .. WVU vs Baylor !!
:laugh2: Big 12 homer.
Hey, if i'm not mistaken, you get to remove that ACC banner at the end of the month!
Thanks for being cool about it.
At Texas follwoing the Baylor game could be a challenge.
Of course, Texas has to go to OK State and then play WVU ythe next week. So it works both ways.
Big 12 looking pretty darn strong...

fair enough on the homer call.
but i have watched wvu twice, bama, lsu, oregon, mich twice, nd twice, ou, kst twice, scar x2, florida, georgia, tcu twice....
wvu is the best team i have seen play by far. BY FAR.
bama has a dominating OL and a great defense but they are young on defense and skill positions on offense aren't equipped to win games.
lsu is very, very good but inconsistent series to series.
ND is very good as well thanks to the best defense they've fielded in a decade. but the "good" qb is just a baby and has to get better.
tavon austin is a r1 NFL draft pick without question. the "Experts" will all agree by the end of the year. yes he is small but he is both quick an fast. this is the next wes welker. like welker a former rb who is tougher than nails while being impossible to cover and possessing great hands.
Herbstreit said it was as good as it has ever been and I can't disagree.
Iowa St and Tech are playing this weekend for a shot at the top half the conference. That's crazy depth.
Kansas is terrible but everyone else is very solid. OSU is playing some kids and will take some conference lumps but they'll still win 7 or 8 games.
KSt, TCU, OU, WVU are all surefire top 15 teams. UT, Bay, Tech, ISU are all top 30. OSU is top 40. That leaves just Kansas outside the top 40 teams in the country. Which is insane depth.
I heard TCU kicks off the 2013 season at Cowboys stadium vs LSU.
WOW, I wish I was as confident as you are. I do think WVU is very good, but anything can happen, ... and playing week in and week out in the Big 12 will be very challenging.
So far I like Dana Holgerson a lot too.
Someone on this board, maybe in this thread, thinks TA is a 5th round NFL pick. I didn't even respond. I don't know how high he will go, but I think it will be before the 5th round.
Per Draft Scout 78th best player, 10th best WR, 2nd to 3rd round FWIW
78 Tavon Austin WR 10 West Virginia Sr 5-09 172 2-3
And that may be legit.
But if he can stay healthy, .. with us playing on the National Stage of the Big 12, .. he will open some eyes.
The kid is special.
Should be a good game manana, all I want for my birthday is a baylor win
WVU is a good team.
It's super early, halfway though the first quarter, but Baylor's D is holding up nicely so far. And their O went through WVU like a hot knife through butter.
WVU could still put up 50, though. Holgerson is some offensive mind.
baylor's defense played one good drive after the tip ball pick...but they've been absent since as i predicted...especially now that Goodson looks to have broken his arm.
Last one to score probably wins this one unless a slew of turnovers start.
Why the hell are they playing so damn early?
These two defenses are AWFUL.
That's being nice.
And another TD given up. Freaking pathetic. Feels like I'm playing Madden.
Hopefully my Longhorns play better defense than this tonight.
Wait, I was told...
You mean I've been duped? Say it ain't so!
