Hoping history repeats itself
As the saying goes, “history is old news.”
But with Big 12 football season finally about to begin, here’s hoping history repeats itself — all the way up to the very end.
Here’s hoping the Big 12 South has three teams stay in the Top 10 pretty much all season. Here’s hoping the Big 12 once again has the maximum two BCS bowl representatives. Here’s hoping a Big 12 team makes it to the national title game for the seventh time in the league’s 14th year of existence. And here’s hoping for the league’s elusive third national crown.
The most compelling reason to be excited about Big 12 football this season is because of what happened last season, particularly in the South. Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are all in the preseason Top 10 for the first time ever. Don’t forget about Texas Tech. Baylor is getting better. Might the Big 12 South squeeze five teams into the Top 25, the Top 20, maybe higher?
True, no one should live in the past. But in this case, there’s nothing wrong with hoping history repeats itself — all the way up to the very end.
