Podcast: Previewing the Big 12

The boys at the Solid Verbal podcast are new members to the Grantland network, and I jumped on with Ty and Dan this week to preview the Big 12's first season in its third configuration in three years.

Here's where you can have a listen.

Can WVU and TCU crash the Big 12 party and win the league? Is the window still open for someone other than Oklahoma and Texas to win the league? How will David Ash progress? Is K-State good enough to be better than 2011?

How far, if at all, will Baylor and Oklahoma State fall without their world-beating pass/catch duos?

Will Mike Stoops revitalize Oklahoma's defense? Can Paul Rhoads or Charlie Weis build something special at Iowa State and Kansas, respectively?

We touched on the whole Big 12. You won't be disappointed. All that and more on the podcast. Give it a listen.
