Nice to see the conference get back to it after a notable drop the last couple years.

B12 went undefeated in bowl games this year. We've got the coaches here, can we get past the media bias against the B12 and finally get the recruits to match those coaches. Poach hard from the Pac 12 try to keep Texas kids at Texas and keep beating the SEC with lesser recruits and we might be able to shift the narrative away from the SEC.

You could argue the Big 12 now has 2 of the top 5 OC’s in college football(Riley + Sark). And then you could also argue the Big 12 has two of the top 5 DC’s in college football(Kwiatkowski + Heacock).

Am I pumping sunshine or does UT have a legitimate claim for top 5 Coordinators on both sides of the ball?

We'll have to see how Sark combined play calling with HC duties.

And how PK adapts to the Big 12.

But obviously seems a reasonable argument based off last couple years performances in those roles at their prior schools.

I'm more confident Pete K translates than I am Sark translates without talent upgrades. The PAC secretly has had a run of really badass offensive coaches over the past few years. There just hasn't been anyone who has worked out how to maximize both sides of the ball.
