Top 3 Big 12 Teams for the 2009 College Football Season
We are yet to see some powerful teams from Big 12 North because so far it seems like forever since the teams of the South have dominated the Big 12. There is no hope of that changing anytime soon however because the gap in the potential of the two division is only increasing if anything. So just like all the recent years, the great teams for the Big 12 are all part of Big 12 South.With teams like Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech ? it seems like the south is the place to be in college football this year. It is definitely the best division there is right now.That also means that the winner of the South title is going to win the Big 12 championship title without a doubt. What happens in South is what we actually have to see, as usual. So let's take a look at the power packed south teams that have been placed on the top 3 list for the Big 12.Texas Longhorns ? They are amongst the favorite picks for many an expert and analyst this season. But some of them also place them slightly behind their rival Oklahoma. However, there are still those who believe that they still have a better chance of winning the Big 12 that all the others. Their quarterback Colt McCoy is quite capable of matching Oklahoma's Sam Bradford. With McCoy being supported by his buddy and wideout Jordan Shipley, the 'Horns may have a good chance of winning this time round. The entire Offensive line up is back as well. Once coach Mack Brown finds a suitable tailback to stabilize the ever turbulent backfield, the 'Horns will prove to be an unstoppable force in their current line up.Oklahoma Sooners ? Their Heisman winning quarterback Sam Bradford is making a return this season and it is quite certain that he is looking for payback. The Sooners had a great season last year only to be stopped at the end by Florida during the BCS championship. Before that they were making it look easy but then Florida completely routed them during BCS, proving again that the Sooners lack in the defense section. Bradford is banking on the fact that tight end Jermain Gresham is returning. Gresham is fully ready for the NFL, making him a powerful player in the team. The tailback DeMarco Murray is also another one to watch out for.Oklahoma State Cowboys ? They are a great team for the ACC or the Big East even and will route the field completely to make it to the BCS bowl. However, they are up against the 'Horns and the Sooners in the Big 12 and that is what stops them every year. They may still breakout this season with their great offense trio made up of wideout Dez Bryant, tailback Kendall Hunter and quarterback Zac Robinson. Robinson makes for an experienced leader and together the Cowboys have a fighting chance of winning it or at least making it to the finals.
