Welcome to our first 2011 Big 12 power rankings. We’ll rank the squads, yes, but we’ll also throw in a few other random tidbits and/or ridiculous behavior from around the league. Let’s get started…
1. Texas – Who isn’t taking them on a neutral court against the rest of the league? While we’re here, I get the losses to UConn and Pitt, they’re both legit title contenders, but at SC? Do the sports gods still hate them for ruining the Bush/Leinart dynasty in ’05?
2. Presidents doing the Dougie – I apologize for being like 5 months late on this (and I’m sorry if you’ve already seen it) but my gosh, when you find 62-year old bow-tie-wearing university presidents doing the Dougie on Kyle Field you just have to stand in awe (start at 1:30).
3. Kansas – The loss to Texas might have been an aberration and we’re going to find out in about a month on a Sunday in Kansas City if it was.
