Joey Galloway probably wants this one back.

Ahead of every college football season, analysts do their best to predict what's going to happen in the coming year, so that fans take them seriously as an expert in the future. ESPN's Joey Galloway probably wants one of his big predictions ahead of the 2017 season back.

Galloway, after visiting Baylor, predicted that the Bears, coming off of a huge scandal, would win the Big 12. He was apparently a big fan of new head coach Matt Rhule and the team's prospects on defense.

Well, Baylor is 1-10 overall and its only win came against Kansas. The Bears also have one of the worst defenses in all of college football.

"I'm going Baylor. Yeah. Matt Rhule comes in, now look, I make fun of Big 12 defenses as much as anybody in the country. Matt Rhule comes in a makes Baylor a much better defensive football team. I visited Baylor in the spring, he had that team flying around."

Here it is, in all its glory:

Galloway's prediction has been a running joke all season - since Baylor's season has been a disaster from the start.

Oklahoma, meanwhile, is the team in best position to win the Big 12. The Sooners are 7-1 and will play in the league's title game in two weeks.
