After talking to new Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby, it seems like the conference is in really good hands going forward. The former Stanford athletics director is all things you want in a person that will lead your conference through television contract negotiations, possible conference expansion and positioning the conference on the national landscape of collegiate sports.

As for the conference members, the hype surrounds newcomers West Virginia and TCU as well as the usual suspects: Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas State and Oklahoma State.

Each team has question marks and issues and anyone who thinks they have a clear-cut conference winner is off their rocker.
