More on the Big 12

Big 12 assistants, not only are you giving up all of those points, but you are getting paid a ton of money (link courtesy of Miami Hawk Talk) to do it. I mean, really Joe Kines (A&M DC) you're getting $400K to give up over five touchdowns each game? That's good for 116th in the nation - scroll wayyyy down. Here's the rest of the defensive scoring stats for Big 12 squads.

Texas is the only team in the top 25 in points allowed, but that 18.7 is helped out a lot by their OOC games where they gave up 43 total points (10, 13, 10 and 10). Take those out and it jumps up to 23 points allowed per game. Turnovers are a big way defenses can put their stamp on a game and UT is tied for 118th in the nation with just six INTs. We all know how that game vs. Tech went with the Longhorn defense wilting as Grahm Harrell went down the field completeing 5/6 for 62 yards, three first downs and a TD.
