While it's a tough task for the league's coaches to continually prepare game plans for elite caliber opponents, the Big 12 is equipped with a successful group of coaches.
When the question was asked of West Virginia coach Bob Huggins if he enjoyed the high level of competition in the Big 12, Huggins wasn’t sure “enjoy” was the right word.
“It’s extremely competitive,” Huggins said. “You play everybody twice. ... You don’t look down the schedule and say, ‘We can get this one or this one.’ All the games are really hard.”
