Everyone seems to be forgetting about Kansas State.
As far as the Big 12 is concerned, many are focused on Oklahoma and the potential resurgence of Texas. If any other team is being talked about, it's Oklahoma State.
Kansas State is left twiddling its thumbs, but perhaps the Wildcats like it that way. They return eight starters on offense and six on defense, with the most important starter rejoining the team.
That, of course, is none other than quarterback Collin Klein. He took the nation by storm last season, throwing for more than 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns while rushing for more than 1,000 yards and 27 TDs.
One has to assume that he'll do the same in 2012 and lead the Wildcats to upset wins over a couple of the big Big 12 powers.
