I'm sorry but that d is going to get shredded in the Big 12 and their offense looked very weak, especially on third down. They gave up 177 yards to an RB from friggin UTEP.
I'd rather be a bit lucky and good than not getting any breaks and be great. We had a lot of things go our way in 2000 and we won a MNC not being a great team. The Big 12 is a pass happy league with a few teams that know how to run it. I'd rather have an okay run defense and a vastly improved pass defense compared to last years defense. I think we will be okay. How do you think A&M will do their first year in the SEC?
