Folks. Simple and to the point... IT IS BASKETBALL SEASON!
Big 12 teams don't begin playing games that count for about a month, and the conference doesn't tip-off until after the New Year's, but that doesn't stop me from have this overwhelming feeling of euphoria.
To get you in the mood, Big 12 Hoops has compiled our preseason All Big 12 teams. After looking over these teams, I would be hard pressed to find an all-conference team in America that this squad couldn't take.
So without further ado...
