Nice asswhipping to finish off the season, the Holiday Bowl has been good to us. 8 win season, just about what I predicted for a team in transition. We played the youngest team in the country, took our lumps, and maybe found our QB. I'm looking forward to next season, the D is championship level, the running game should be stellar, if Ash can maintain this is a BCS contender. Still need a playmaker at WR to go with Shipley but we should win the Big12.
Are you looking at the entire roster or the starters? The offense is very young and should be improved next year. On D, I count 4 seniors to replace, the biggest of which are the two LBs Acho and Robinson.
Oklahoma actually has a pretty young roster too, and a good chance Landry returns. Broyles, Ronnell Lewis and Travis Lewis will be big losses though.
And then there is TCU, who finished pretty strong. They have a really young D (which will have to get better, they played horrible in TCU's big games) and their offense has a lot of playmakers. WR Dawson and Boyce will be one of the best combos in the Big 12, and TCU will be in the top3 for best RBs, they use 3 different talented guys.
