ESPN has their power rankings out, and I break down the Big 12 thoroughly (and all Longhorn opponents) in the Burnt Orange Bible. But I wanted to share a few big picture observations here on what should be a wide open 2018 Big 12 race.

Thoughts on preseason 2018 All-Big 12 Teams: Offense

The Big 12 preseason All-Big 12 media teams are out and I wanted to share my thoughts on them. It’s my belief that the media tends towards a little bit of groupthink and may not always evaluate the factors that led to the prior year’s performance that typically inform preseason picks. I think this year is also fairly challenging at some positions as there isn’t clear differentiation.

I’m in the closing stages of writing and editing the 2018 Thinking Texas Football Preview magazine which will be available verrry soon. Needless to say, the process of writing and tons of extensive research from both public and private resources gives me a lot of time to think about Texas, our opponents and other important things.

Like recruiting. The Marques Caldwell commitment triggered me to expound on Tom Herman’s three star recruits.
