TCU RB Kyle Hicks, the team's leading rusher, and two former Horned Frogs players were arrested in Fort Worth and charged with public intoxication over the weekend.
Oklahoma State could have the nation's top group of WRs in 2017, while Texas could contend in the Big 12, but its brutal schedule will make that tough.
Narrowing down the top 25 returning Big 12 players was no easy choice, but Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield is the clear No. 1.
TCU has questions for 2017 on both sides of the ball, including if KaVontae Turpin and his fellow wide receivers can play a bigger role in the offense.
A defensive coordinator hire, a dunking wide receiver and a hypothetical foot race among QBs are discussed in this edition of the Big 12 mailbag.
The Big 12 is a bit behind on the recruiting trail. Oklahoma has the top-ranked class, but all eyes will be on Texas to see how the Horns close.
Several high-level recruits and experienced transfers, including Will Grier and Anu Solomon, will challenge for starting roles this offseason.

Answering reader questions about all things Big 12 as the long college football offseason begins.
Kansas hired Doug Meacham as offensive coordinator. Meacham had the same role at TCU and led an offense that was explosive in 2014 and 2015 but struggled in 2016.

Kansas coach David Beaty has hired OC Doug Meacham away from TCU. That is quite a coup for a KU program with a 2-22 record in the past 2 seasons. TCU had one of the nation's most prolific offenses in 2014 and 2015 under Meacham and Sonny Cumbie. The Frogs struggled with inconsistency throughout the 2016 season after losing QB Trevone Boykin and 4 other seniors to the NFL.
