On the heels of the Big 12 announcing its 2013 preseason All-Conference team, Bleacher Report has put together an all-time All-Big 12 team.

The only real criteria for this list goes as follows: you must have played for a Big 12 team, current or former, during the Big 12 era. Guys like Barry Sanders who played in the Big 8 don't count.
