Yes you can overdo it on water, but you are nowhere near the level it would take.
12 - 8 oz glasses of water gives you 96 oz
From what I have researched, you are supposed to drink half your weight in water. I think your siggie said that you are currently 196 or so. That means that your body can easily handle 98 oz.
The information I found also said that you should drink an additional 8 oz of water for every caffeinated beverage you drink, as well as replace fluids that you burn off with exercise.
Now my SIL was told to cool it on the water but she was drinking it in quarts. For every 8 oz I drank, she was drinking a quart.
