Rank #1: The Predictions Show!
Season 3, Episode 11 In less than a week, players all across the Big 12 will report for fall camp, which means it's time for our preseason predictions! Chris Ross joins me once again as we break down the schedule and each give our predictions on the season. This is one of our favorite episodes every year. Before we got to the predictions though, there was another topic we needed to tackle first, just where is Oklahoma? Seriously, where is it? [Spoiler Alert] In a surprise twist, neither of us picked Kansas last. However, we had different teams in the 10 spot. We did not talk about or share our predictions with each other before the show. We kept them a surprise so we could react to them in the moment. To find out the rest, you're going to have to give it a listen.

Rank #5: Quickslant Podcast - S3 E7 - Bob Stoops Retires!
Nothing happened today...except Bob Stoops decided to retire. Chris Ross joined once again to help me fathom this groundbreaking news. For the first time since November 20, 1998 -- before the invention of the instant streaming -- Oklahoma will have a coach not named Bob Stoops. What does this mean for OU? For the Big 12? Is Mike Gundy now the "Big Daddy" of the Big 12? Find out!
Rank #6: QuickSlant Podcast - S3 E6 - Talking Big 12 Recruiting & Who Is Impressing So Far
As we enter the doldrums of summer, there is a part of college football that is heating up, and that is recruiting. Chris Ross and Patrick Mayhorn join the show as we break down the Big 12's 2018 recruiting classes so far, who is impressing and who we should be concerned about.
Rank #7: QuickSlant Podcast S3 E5 - Talking Longhorns Football With UT Tailgators
Matt Fegan, who you probably know on Twitter as @uttailgaters, joined the show today to talk about all things Texas football. Before jumping into football though, we had an interesting discussion on the dynamic of Longhorns fans rooting for Kevin Durant when he played for a team in *gasp* Oklahoma! As well as Durant's departure from the Thunder and if it made Matt laugh a little at Oklahoma sports fan's expense. When we actually started talking about football, Matt and I shared a cautious optimism concerning new head coach Tom Herman. While he certainly provides excitement into a program devoid of any, and has a history of beating other big time coaches and schools, it would be wise for UT fans to remain realistic with their expectations. On top of that, we dove into the Longhorn's quarterback situation heading into the year, and run through the Longhorn's schedule. What is the magic number of wins fans should be looking for this year? Well, I guess there is only one way to find out. We also talked more Big 12 football, like TCU's across-the-board success in athletics, although Kenny Hill will keep me from hopping on the TCU bandwagon anytime soon. I also revealed my dark horse Big 12 team, and lastly, Matt and I reminisced about old-school Big 12 football and how much we miss it. Hope you enjoy the show! Thanks for listening!

Uh oh! Oklahoma's Heisman candidate quarterback was arrested in Arkansas, so of course, we need to talk about it. How big of a deal is Mayfield's arrest?

Rank #10: QuickSlant Podcast S3 E2 - Talking K - State Football And Favorite Coach Snyder Memories
Welcome back to the QuickSlant Podcast! With Bill Snyder's medical news, I brought on Kansas State expert, and co-host of The Salute Podcast, Grant Thome to talk about the situation. We agreed that there is reason to be optimistic, not only for Bill Snyder, but for Kansas State football. It was a fantastic episode, and we thank Grant for taking time to talk with us. We walked down memory lane and talked about our favorite Snyder memories, and even went through some memories that we didn't particularly like. I also made an early Big 12 rankings list where it was between KSU or West Virginia for third place. You'll have to listen to find out who won that battle. Oh, and we had fun making fun of Texas A&M. But who doesn't?
