Which moving team will do best in Year 1?
The Big 12 was in the middle of it all, introducing TCU and West Virginia on the same day two of the league's founding members left.
That was a year after two more founding members -- Colorado and Nebraska -- left the league.
Nebraska was picked by many to win its division in the first year of the new Big Ten, but it went just 9-4 and finished third in the Legends Division, including two lopsided losses to Big Ten powers Michigan and Wisconsin.
How will all the teams changing leagues in 2012 do in their first year in their new digs?
Texas A&M is breaking in a new quarterback (Jameill Showers, probably), new coach (Kevin Sumlin) and new athletic director (Eric Hyman), but has loads more talent than Colorado has had in a long, long time.
Missouri brings back most of its eight-win team from 2011, but will its spread offense succeed in the more physical SEC?
TCU and West Virginia will boast some of the Big 12's best offenses, but the big question without an answer is whether they can handle the week-to-week grind in the Big 12 that the Big East and Mountain West Conference lacked.
So, take your pick.
In Year 1, which team will have the best record? Vote in our poll.
