Coaches and Players Talk the 2014 Season at Big 12 Media Day

Posted:
DALLAS, TX ---- Five of the ten Big 12 teams meeting with the media today. Kansas tight end and Denison native Jimmay Mundine even in attendance.

Also in Dallas, the Oklahoma State Cowboys, a new look young team who no one knows what to expect from. They'll open up against the defending champion Florida State Seminoles just down the road at Cowboys Stadium.

"We're looking forward to the challenge and as I said, we've got a lot of work ahead of us, but we'll show up on Saturday and be ready to play," Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy said.
 
TCU meanwhile hopes to get back in contention for a conference title after a 2-7 season last year. They're still getting used to life in the conference.
 
"For us, how do you, you know, you're really not only having a one-year plan, but how do you put yourself in a two-year plan to make sure you can be the best football team you can be going down the road," TCU head coach Gary Patterson said.
 
MEANWHILE THE TEXAS TECH RAIDERS HAD A HOT START LAST SEASON, ONLY TO FINISH MIDDLE OF THE PACK.. THIS YEAR WITH AN EXPERIENCED SIGNAL CALLER WITH DAVIS WEBB, KLIFF KINGSBURY THINKS THE SKY IS THE LIMIT...
 
"I think year two our staff, our entire program there's a comfort level and having a guy as an established leader at the quarterback position in our system really helps and has helped the entire off-season."
 
Speaking of an established leader; the defending Big 12 Champion Baylor Bears like their odds this season with Bryce Petty at the helm. He set 17 school records last year, and thanks to Baylor's breakout year, Art Briles thinks he could be the Nation's most outstanding player.
 
"Do those numbers again this year, he'll be in New York, might win it. But I mean that's the whole deal, I mean his perception, his image is different than it was a year ago because he had none," Baylor head coach Art Briles said.
