Show Summary

Ty and Dan welcome back David Ubben from ESPN.com to look up and down at the Big 12 Conference. Before they get to Ubben, Dan throws Ty a hypothetical: Would you rather have Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk on your team, be romantically involved with actress Lake Bell or own a lavished lake house?

Ubben joins the program and starts off by addressing Kansas State and life after Collin Klein, what Texas has to do to get back to “Texas is still Texas” status, why Oklahoma is continually the most boring 10-win team in the country, and where Oklahoma State needs to improve on the defensive side of the ball.

The guys go on to discuss just how good TCU’s defense could be, how Texas Tech can mask its defensive deficiencies through a solid pass rush, and why Sam Richardson could be the key to Iowa State’s sustained success.

They finish off the conference highlighting the fact that no Kansas wide receiver caught a touchdown pass during Charlie Weis’ first season, Seastrunk’s preseason declaration that he will win the Heisman, and peg West Virginia for another mediocre year. Dan throws out another hypothetical before Ubben signs off: Would you rather spend a night in Vegas with Dana Holgorsen, Kliff Kingsbury or Fake Dan Beebe?

Ty and Dan close the show by opening the inbox to answer a few emails, but this leads them into the most important hypothetical of the night: Ladies, would you go out on a date with a robot surgeon?
