The Oklahoman's Jake Trotter polled 29 of the 38 players at Big 12 Media Days, including at least one from each school. These are their answers.

Which coach would you most like to play for?

Bob Stoops (Oklahoma), 39%

Mack Brown (Texas), 17%

Art Briles (Baylor), 13%

Bo Pelini (Nebraska), 13%

Other receiving votes: Mark Mangino (Kansas), Bill Snyder (Kansas State), Mike Gundy (Oklahoma State), Mike Leach (Texas Tech)

Quotable: "I like his attitude. He's got that I'm-going-to-win attitude and he don't care about nobody else. I like that." — a Big 12 North defensive player, on Stoops

Quotable II: "I'd play for him. He's a great coach. He's done a lot of good things. He gets his players to play hard. He's an intense guy." — a Big 12 South offensive player, on Brown

If you could pick any quarterback to play with, who would it be?

Sam Bradford (Oklahoma), 46%

Colt McCoy (Texas), 46%

Zac Robinson (Oklahoma State), 8%

Other receiving votes: None

Quotable: "He came from nowhere from behind Rhett Bomar and took over the Big 12 to become the best in the nation, so I always can respect that." — a Big 12 North defensive player, on Bradford

Quotable II: "I like McCoy, I like his style. He's an accurate quarterback and a running quarterback." — a Big 12 North offensive player
