BIG 12 COACHES POLL RELEASED
This is almost an identical duplication of my predictions, with only slight changes. I think Baylor will win the conference, and think that KU will finally suffer from all their departures (if you can 'suffer' while placing third in conference). The rest are about where I thought they'd be. ISU fans are stoked about their prospects, but I still think they'll need a year to gel. Too many new faces, so the coaches and I think alike there. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
