Looking ahead to this season, many Big 12 teams lost some star power to graduation or the NFL draft. Some teams won't see a huge drop off—but frankly, there aren't a lot of those teams in the Big 12—while others will be under major reconstruction for the next seven months.
We've gone ahead and figured out the core returning starters for each team and ranked them from the team with the least amount of returning starters to the team with the best core of returning starters.
If your team is ranked low, don't hit the panic button yet—national signing day is coming up and an influx of help could be on its way. And who knows, an emerging star could turn your head at spring practices.
