The Big 12 is pretty questionable this year. Seems like the conference has been "young" for about 2-3 years now and yet the conference hasn't risen yet. This will give ISU hope this year that pretty much only Kansas, K-State, and MAYBE Texas are way above us from a talent standpoint.
It's just the typical pre-season Big Ten over-hype. After a few embarrasing pre-conference losses (which the Big Ten will not be able to cover up because the games will be on the BTN for all the world to see), the hype will go away...
"Don't worry Boss...they can't do nothin' 'til they're through sparklin'..."
If you are relying on young players, as the BigXII has the last few years, you aren't going to get a lot of preseason hype. In the end this may be a good conference but we won't know until the season gets going.
