Mailbag: Talking Florida State's Title Shot, TCU in the Big 12 and More

It has been two weeks since the last mailbag dedicated to the great conferences that are the Big 12, Pac-12, ACC and Big East. Without further ado, let's get to it.

First off, did I really ask for questions for the Big 12 twice? I apologize Big East. I apparently cannot type on my iPhone.

Anyway, this question is like a black hole. It's what I think versus what will really happen. In my humble opinion, I do believe Florida State is a true national champion contender. They have a lot of power on that team and could really put together a strong campaign in 2012.

However, do I think they actually will contend for the national championship? Honestly, no, I do not. Unfortunately, regardless of talent, the Seminoles have a tendency to choke when it matters most.

I expect the Horned Frogs to take the Big 12 by storm. I think they'll make a statement. They finished the 2011 season 11-2. One of those losses was to Baylor though in their season opener. I wouldn't expect that to happen again though.

TCU will make a run for the Big 12 title, so Oklahoma and Texas will need to keep an eye on them. It's going to be a fun season for the new kids on the block.

Head coach Rich Rodriguez is going to have a big rebuilding year ahead of him. From injuries to a tough schedule to a countless list of road blocks, the Wildcats are most likely not going to be winning the Pac-12 championship.

Rodriguez was a good hire for Arizona though, and there is no telling what he can do with this team. He's an innovator, so I think we'll see a lot of new ideas for the Wildcats in 2012.

May I direct you to Bleacher Report's own Adam Kramer? He knows Vegas odds like it's nobody's business (and he's the one I listen to 100% of the time, which means he could really make me look dumb if he wanted).

Hi Jeff, Nebraska is in the Big Ten now and this is a Big 12, Pac-12, ACC and Big East mailbag...but no, you're not the only one.
