Preseason All-Big 12, awards unveiled

July, 18, 2012
The Big 12 released its preseason All-Big 12 team and preseason awards on Wednesday. Here they are, including all of the first-teamers.

I'll reveal my personal ballot later this month, and have a few thoughts on the guys who did make it when I return from vacation on Monday.

Trust me, I have a lot. (Biggest snub of anyone: Texas cornerback Carrington Byndom. Complete travesty.) Plenty more where that came from. Come back next week.
