Spring practice is blooming across the Big 12 this week with workouts beginning Monday at Baylor. There's unbridled excitement over the Bears following a 4-8 season that saw them lose three games by a touchdown or less.

The Bears' spring work will be dotted by fewer unanswered questions in Art Briles' second season directing the Bears, the Waco Tribune-Herald's John Werner writes.

Ah, the enthusiasm of the start of spring practice. It's catching across the conference.
