Last time Texas visited Columbia, these guys ended up sad. What happens this time around? (<a href="http://www.rockmnation.com/2009/10/25/1100585/rock-m-photo-gallery" target="new">Photo via Bill Carter</a>)

Rock M'ers are nothing if not predictable. They will pick Missouri to beat anybody but Oklahoma, and they will pick Kansas to lose to anybody but an FCS team. Last year, those tendencies paid off. Here's to hoping it's the same in 2011, as the following results would be, uh, pretty damn enjoyable, eh?

(Another tendency: chances are, Rock M'ers are going to make the same picks en masse. In only three of this batch's ten games did the predicted winner get less than 90% of the vote.

Week Nine Results:

  • Missouri (66%) > Texas A&M by 8
  • Texas Tech (81%) > Iowa State by 10
  • Oklahoma (93%) > Kansas State by 19
  • Oklahoma State (96%) > Baylor by 14
  • Texas (98%) > Kansas by 20

Five Big 12 teams are bowl eligible at this point, and four square off in Week 11. Texas heads to Columbia, while Oklahoma State heads to Lubbock. Depending on the results, Oklahoma (on bye this week), could have the Big 12 all but clinched by Sunday morning. Gary Pinkel took down Bob Stoops last year. Does he do the same to Mack Brown this time around?
