Remember when the Big 12 welcomed West Virginia to the conference, and then watched the Mountaineers, led by quarterback Geno Smith, go 4-5 in the conference?

Remember when Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones said he was going to come back for another year and then had only one loss in the conference?
