Holiday Wish Lists
- ACC | Big East | Big Ten | Big 12 | Pac-12 | SEC

Big 12

For Under The Tree: A defense that's just a half-shade better than completely and utterly miserable.
In The Stocking: Another quarterback whose stats can be in the same discussion as RG3's and Nick Florence's.

Iowa State
For Under The Tree: More linebackers like A.J. Klein and Jake Knott.
In The Stocking: An offense that can occasionally keep up the pace with at least half the teams in the Big 12.

For Under The Tree: A decided schematic advantage that occasionally factors in a completed downfield throw.
In The Stocking: A defense that stops a few of the downfield throws that the offense can only dream of making.

Kansas State
For Under The Tree: A do-over against Baylor.
In The Stocking: Yet another Bill Snyder quarterback who fits the Michael Bishop, Ell Roberson, Jonathan Beasley and Collin Klein mode, but who can also throw like a Ron Prince passer, Josh Freeman.

For Under The Tree: To get the home mojo back.
In The Stocking: A contract extension for Mack Brown.

Oklahoma State
For Under The Tree: Just a wee bit more time for some of the rising young stars to grow up.
In The Stocking: A road win against someone other than Kansas.

For Under The Tree: The same wish for yet another season - for all the four and five-star talent being brought in to play like it. 
In The Stocking: A defensive front seven that doesn't get blown over by a light breeze.

For Under The Tree: A big boy, Big 12 offense to match up with the big boy, Big 12 defense.
In The Stocking: For all programs to handle its adversity and scandals the way TCU dealt with its issues last offseason.

Texas Tech
For Under The Tree: A quarterback who can produce for Texas Tech as well as its current head coach did.
In The Stocking: After getting just three all year, a recovered fumble.

West Virginia
For Under The Tree: A defensive stop against someone other than Kansas.
In The Stocking: For Geno Smith and Stedman Bailey to have been products of the system as well as great talents.
