    Big 12 is slugfest this year, Kansas the only team that doesn't have a shot to be BCS ranked at season's end.

    Tech and ISU will be lucky to make a bowl, TCU has struggled against bad teams and will probably lose 4-5 games and Oklahoma States defense is every bit as bad as Baylor's. Kansas State is always one play away from winning or losing any game and Oklahoma is INCREDIBLY underwhelming.

    Outside of Texas, I just don't see those teams stopping WVU. And I'm not sure Texas' defense is good enough to make up the gap between the two offenses.

    I wonder how many future NFL wideouts were in this game, Bailey, Austin, Williams and reese all have the chops.

    It looks like a wild year in th Big 12.

    I'm not sure yet whether that means a lot of okay teams or something better.
    Six ranked teams though....

    lol, wut? They had some self inflicted turnover issues in "a" game this season. You are so angry about your Big 12 departure. Face it, A&M made a HUGE mistake and will forever be pond scum in the SEC.

    The Big 12 is flourishing right now with six top 25 teams and you're pissed A&M is an unranked SEC bottom feeder.

    Gotta say, WVU showed that they aren't title contenders this year. To win it all, you have to have some form of defense. That should have been a fun game to watch though.

    It is my estimation K State, WVU, OU, Texas and Baylor are in a five way race for the conference, it will be a complex who knocks who off tie breaker.

    I can see all five programs garnering at least 9 wins.

    This, .. plus both defenses got gassed and never recovered.

    Don't forget Baylor put up 67 in their bowl game last year, .. setting a bowl record.

    And then just a few day later, WV put 70 up on Clemson breaking Baylors record.

    I have to agree that both defenses looked bad today, but I was soooo impressed with both offenses. Impressed with both QB's, and with both teams playcalling. Both teams had great athletes receiving the ball. Both offenses were clicking.

    Only Baylor's TD at the half made me sick. That should never happen. For a while in the 2nd half I thought that was going to come back and bite us.

    I was surprised that Baylor did not kick the onsides kick there at the end.

    I have a feeling Geno will be a top 5 pick next year.

    Well, it was either the two worst defenses in the country or the two most potent offenses.

    That's what I was thinking. Might be both.

    Holgerson said in his post-game that "it just became the perfecet storm offensively for both teams."

    He said "it won't be this way for either team every game."

    "Neither team will score that much every game and neither team will give up that many points every game. That's just the way that it turned out today."

    He was relieved to win.

    I agree but McShay was on ESPN yesterday questioning his accuracy and ability to make NFL throws. The guy is completing 80% of his passes, and I know somebody desperate to sell tickets next year will roll the bones on him in the top 5.

    If he produces a winning record in the big 12 he'll make the case.

    I don't really know enough about McShay to comment on him, but this is really a dumb statement.

    If nothing, he is accurate.

    Just texted w/an exec, told me he think Geno Smith "has a chance" to be the 1st pick in April, noted it's also bc of his strong junior year.

    Dez Bryant ‏@DezBryant

    I would have. They had a better chance betting on funny bounce of the ball over their defense making a stop.

    I think Texas will beat WVU next week. WVU isn't a big running team and that's been Texas' weakness on defense.
