Summer is about to begin and that means yet another three or four month span of postulation and speculation on the 2010-2011 season.
A new decade is dawning for Big 12 nation, rumors of splits to the Big 10 are running a muck and open criticism of the Big 12's inability to garner even a decent television contract is at an all time high.
For a second though, forget about the Big 10 hullabaloo and about the ineptitude of the Big 12 commissions ability to increase exposure, it's time to wonder about closer more tangible things.
Like who will be who when the dust settles in 2010 for the Big 12. I can't remember a time when the race was more wide open. Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, Zac Robinson, Dez Bryant, Mike Leach, Mark Mangino and Ndamukong Suh are all gone from the scene next season leaving a power vacuum in their wake.
Who will seize the opportunity? What follows is my opinion on the final positions for the Big 12 next season, first for the North then for the South. The start of a new era is dawning for the Big 12, who knows how long it will last but one thing is for certain, the start should be dang entertaining.
