Oklahoma State is extremely interesting and counter to what many on here have predicted.

Pinning this (already rec'd GetHooked's approval)..
I would swap the Okla St and K St. game lines.
I have got to get in touch with Mr Burton. Everyone here seems to have pinning privileges, except me.
They must've got Kstate and OKstate confused somehow......
Interesting that ou is favored in all of their games.
Get your bets in.
I'd be all over Baylor, TCU, KState and OSU.
We haven't beat KState in years. That line is stupid. I'm going to bet my kidneys on it (semi joking)
I'm pretty surprised at the WVU line
I think there are 3 or 4 that are single digits.
USC, according to Vegas, has to be the odds-on preseason pick for the NC. Favored in every game and only two are in single digits (Oregon by 6 and Stanford by 7.5).
LSU favored by 2 over Bama. LSU is favored in every game but has 4 or 5 games where they are only single digit favorites.
Bama favored by 20 over the Aggies.

Oklahoma State reminds me of Texas Tech with Leach. They have a great offensive system and they just plug and play new players every other year. That said they will have a true freshman QB and I can't see them being favored over Texas so early in the year.
OSU favored even with a true freshman at QB, no Blackmon, and 3/5 of its OL being replaced? Wow.
we will not lose to K State. Won't. Period. Mark it down. Write it up. We will not. And it won't be so close either.
Look out for their defense this year. Could be better than a lot of people think. I think they take a step back this year, but I expect their defense to give people some trouble in 2012.
OKst getting a lot of respect. The Kst line is interesting too. No doubt these will move after a few games early. Today, I would take OU, OKst and Kst.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
I think WVU is the team everybody may be sleeping on. Could be the best offense in all of college football. Just won the Orange Bowl while dropping a cool 70 points on Clemson (and there is no shortage of defensive talent at Clemson). WVU returns the best QB in the Big XII, and all 3 WRs, many of whom are among the best in the Big XII, and they have several NFL caliber OL back as well. Oh, and they have Dana Holgerson.
I'd be surprised if our offense can score enougn points to overcome the WVU offense, even in Austin. I also don' think we're going to be able to beat KSU either. I like our chances better against OU than those other two games.
The winner of the OU-WVU game has a really solid chance to run the table.
People are sleeping on Oklahoma state. Baylor too for that matter.
Wish I could be this optimistic.
Count me in on the WVU is overrated camp.
Too much weight going into the Clemson score. That same WVU team also only put up 30 on a non bowl eligible S-Fla team (1 game before) and 21 v. a crappy Pitt team (2 games before) that while bowl eligible turned around and gave up 27 to SMU while getting smoked in their bowl.
Of the games listed, a&m is only a favorite in one...Missouri (+3). Long year ahead.
Really intrigued by Baylor this year. Do they win 8-9 or do they win 6 or 7?
Texas has 2 weeks to prepare for OkState after being at Ole Miss. Texas will not lose to a Frosh QB this year.
Texas will also kick the dog shite out of Baylor in Austin.
