mhmmm... Do we know who's doing our Big XII blog?
I know the first says the rivalry is ending...clearly not the case
The second was a little easier to find...see you in October Chaotic
I think it's meant more for discussion and our team previews
That was not in reference to your vids child haha it was to your question
First conference to accept all invites...sign of things to come
Returning Starters: Offense 6 // Defense 7Key losses: Offense- QB Colt McCoy, WR Jordan Shipley, K Hunter Lawrence Defense- DE Sergi Kindle, S Earl Thomas, DT Ben AlexanderStrength: Secondary- Texas returns all but one of its stating DB's from a year ago and will go intothe season with arguably the best secondary in the Big XII.Questions: Offensive Line/ Quarterback- UT will lose 3 long-time starters at the OL next yearand with not a lot of depth at the position, young guys will need to step up early. Oh... and collegefootball's all-time winningest QB Colt McCoy will need to be replaced, easyyy. Look for Texas tokeep the competition open at QB until someone steps up and takes control of the team.Key Games: Week 5 vs. Oklahoma, Week 6 @ Nebraska, Week 10 vs Oklahoma State,Week 13 vs. Texas A&MQuote of the Week: "This will be my 8th season since I took my first head coaching job and it has come full circle, back to Texas... the real Texas this time."
2010-11 Oklahoma Sooners FootballPreseason PreviewReturning Starters: Oklahoma returns nine starters on offense and six ondefense from its8-5 Sun Bowl champion team.Key Losses: The Sooners suffer key losses in four first round NFL draft picks, including three of the top four picks for the first time in NCAA history. QB Sam Bradford (#1), DT Gerald McCoy (#3), T Trent Williams (#4), and TE Jermaine Gresham (#21) all will be playing on Sundays this fall.Key Newcomers: Two true freshman will start for Oklahoma from day one. Wide Receiver Kenny Stills will start opposite of All-American Ryan Broyles after proving himself in Spring practice, and highly-touted defensive back Tony Jefferson will start at one of two strong safety positions, spending most of his time on the offense's strong side.Key Games: Week Five vs. Texas, Week Nine vs. Colorado, Week Thirteen at Oklahoma StateBiggest Question Mark: The defense. Oklahoma is extremely potent offensively with Landry Jones, DeMarco Murray, and Ryan Broyles all returning. Defensively, the team makes an unexpected move to a 3-3-5, hoping to capitalize on speed and athleticism while playing team defense.Most Important Recruit: Cornerback Phil Hall. Hall is the #1 ranked corner out of Lake Charles, Louisianna. Undersized at 5'9", Hall is a football player. He is an absolute burner who is outstanding in zone coverage and very good in man. His athleticism is unparalleled on the national level, and Hall would see immediate playing time as a true freshman. TheSooners will have to battle LSU and Texas for his services.
2010 - 2011 Nebraska Cornhusker FootballKey Losses : DT - Ndomukong Suh , LB - Phillip DillardPlayers to Watch : Redshirt Freshman Taylor Martinez will start at QB for the Huskers and will look to play a big impact on the ground as well as through the air. Senior Roy Helu will also play a significant role in determining the success of the Husker offense. On the defensive side of the ball the man to watch will be Prince Amukama who is a true playmaker.Key Games : Week 6 vs. Texas , Week 12 vs. ColoradoBiggest Question Mark : Depth at Offensive Line. How will the Huskers respond should one of their big men go down with an injury? They are short handed at both the tackle and guard positionsRecruit to Watch : Tackle - Darnell Cooper. Cooper a West Memphis, Arkansas native would step in and have the oportunity to compete for a starting spot as a Freshman. The Huskers will have to compete with Virginia Tech and Oregon should they wish to land his talent."We are looking to come in here and compete for a Big 12 and BCS Title. We have a couple real tough ganes but I think our guys will be up to the challenge."
Sooner defense answers any and all questions week one vs. Boston College...
Allowed only 4 first downs, -8 yards rushing, 122 yards passing, and 7 points.
Nebraska takes care of Cal in the season opener
2010 - 2011 Colorado Buffalo Season PreviewReturning Starters: Offense 9/ Defense 7Key Losses : LB - Jeff SmartPlayers to Watch: QB Tyler Hansen, HB Rodney Stewart, WR Scotty McKnight, LB Tyler Ahles, CB Jimmy SmithStrengths: Corner/Halfback - Colorado returns two 3 year starters in CB Jimmy Smith and CB Jalil Brown, while HB Rodney Stewart heads up a small quick offensive backfleid for the Buffs.Weakness: Pass Blocking - Colorado boost very good line at the point of attack, but pass blocking will be an issue for the line as a whole.Key Games: vs. Georgia, @ Oklahoma, @ Nebraska Recruit to Watch : Corner - Lou Johnson. Johnson hails from Northglenn, CO and is a big corner at 6'2 200, with speed to burn and above average man skills, the Buffs are hoping Johnson can ease the pain of losing seniors Smith and Brown. Johnson is also receiving interest from BYU, Utah and Arizona State.
^^^ you got balls rolling with Colorado. I respect that a lot though
thx, it was between Colorado and Baylor, took the better defense and it balances out the Big 12.
Texas beats TCU on athleticism, not skill; looks to improve
CU dominates CSU holding the ball for 19 minutes.
CU downs #7 Iowa forcing 4 turnovers.
HUGE win for CU!! Way to hold it down for the Big XII
Nice win maij! Big 12 looking strong. Nebraska has a big game against USC
Oklahoma vs. Florida State at 2 EST today
Oklahoma 24, Florida State 14...let's keep this undefeated streak going!
At least till we beat each other up
Just so everyone knows, I had a migraine that began before kickoff and CP9 wouldn't let me pause the game. During halftime, I started to develop arthritis in my right hand...after the 4th quarter, my left hand as well. This game should be replayed in all honesty.
