Inside Look: Even losing Colt McCoy, Sergio Kindle and Jordan Shipley Texas is still the best team in the Big 12 with Garrett Gilbert. Ndamukong Suh left Nebraska but the D-Line is still loaded with Jared Crick and cornerback Prince Amukamara in the secondary. A very tough 2010 will help Oklahoma this season. Landry Jones will be better in his second season as starter passing to Ryan Broyles and back DeMarco Murray. Missouri now has a quarterback in Blaine Gabbert in his second season as starter. Aldon Smith leads the talented defense. Texas Tech had a strong season last year after losing Michael Crabtree. But this season they will have deal with the loss of offensive linemen Brandon Carter. Luckily they still have Taylor Potts and Baron Batch with Brian Duncan, the end/linebacker. Talented quarterback Jerrod Johnson, who can pass and run for good yardage will lead Texas A&M this season. Back Cyrus Gray will take some pressure off Johnson and the defense is led with prospect Von Miller. Kansas State had a decent season last year and back Daniel Thomas is the senior phenom and should help out the Wildcats very much if he continues the season he had last season. Oklahoma State lost a lot of talent in quarterback Zac Robinson, wide receiver Dez Bryant and tackle Russell Okung and will break in a new offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen. Todd Reesing is gone and things do not look bright for the Kansas Jayhawks. Plus they fired off Mark Mangino and replaced him with Turner Gill who will have a tough time working with new sophomore QB Kale Pick. Baylor did lose some talent but talented quarterback Robert Griffin returns after an injury filled season. Colorado will try to have a strong season before their move to the Pac 10. A Cyclone team won a bowl last season and Iowa State tries to move up the Big 12 even more this season.
