The Big 12's most disappointing team?

Texas took home this title not only in the Big 12, but in all of college football last year. I doubt we'll see a fall like that from anyone this year, but who will the Big 12's most disappointing team be?

Oklahoma State brings back its two biggest stars on offense, but loses lots of leadership defensively and is trying to bring in an offensive coordinator in Todd Monken to run Dana Holgorsen's system. Is that a recipe for a disappointing follow-up to last year's 11-win season?

Oklahoma doesn't have many question marks beyond defensive tackle and a secondary with little more than potential, but is a Big 12 repeat going to happen? Or are the Sooners all hype?

Texas A&M didn't do well in the spotlight to begin last season, stumbling to a three-game losing streak in its first three legitimate contests and nearly dropping an early-season game to Florida International. Will the preseason pressure crack the Aggies?

Texas didn't sit and stew over last year's seven losses. It got to work. The Longhorns revamped their coaching staff, and Mack Brown reeled in another top recruiting class. Will the new, younger coaches have the effect Brown hopes?

Baylor broke its bowl streak last year, but will the new defensive coordinator, Phil Bennett, be able to help? Despite having experienced junior Robert Griffin III at quarterback, will the Bears' tough schedule keep them home for the holidays?
