In Between Iowa State & Baylor, I actually believe the Big 12 is ending up being a 5 headed beast (Kansas/Arizona/Houston).<< br><> < br>> Realignment harmed them for FB, however they are THE leading basketball conference up until otherwise kept in mind

Iowa State is the very best defense in the nation. Even much better than Houston imo. Simply a suffocating defense who requires such difficult passes and contests whatever. Absolutely nothing simple dealing with the Clones’, who are 2:03 far from the Sweet 16.
