We kicked off our spring preview on Tuesday, and you may have noticed a couple new faces making an appearance.

We're still integrating West Virginia and TCU into the Big 12 fold, but there's a lot to be excited about for both.

That said, which team's new membership excites you most?

TCU will renew its old rivalries from the Southwest Conference with Texas, Texas Tech and Baylor, though A&M has left for the SEC.

The Horned Frogs played a classic with the Bears last season, and until Tech beat the Sooners last year, the Horned Frogs were the last team to win a game in Norman, Okla., all the way back in the 2005 season opener.

Gary Patterson's built something special at TCU, and the Horned Frogs proved that non-AQ schools really can win their way into the big leagues.

Now it's time for TCU to win at the next level.

West Virginia? The Mountaineers have a recognizable head man in Dana Holgorsen, who made stops at Texas Tech under Mike Leach and Oklahoma State, where he revitalized the Cowboys' offense and helped win a then-school-record 11 games.

West Virginia will be a much larger unknown to Big 12 folk. Morgantown is a long way from Fort Worth. I've never been to West Virginia, and I assume plenty of Big 12 fans haven't been, either.

Now's your chance.

Both teams have big offenses coming back in 2012. Both teams have had big success on the BCS stage.

Which team are you most excited to see? Vote in our poll.
