The Big 12

is so overrated.

I predicted this blowout. My father-in-law is a USC alum, and while he is by no means objective, he is a realist, and thought the same thing. Yes, I know that Texas squeaked by Michigan in the Rose Bowl, but overall the Big 12 plays no one but themselves. Look at the non-conference opponents of the top three teams in the Big 12:

Oklahoma - Bowling Green, Houston, Oregon
Texas - North Texas, Rice, Arkansas
Texas Tech - SMU, New Mexico (loss), TCU

We have exactly two teams from BCS conferences on these schedules - Oregon and Arkansas, both of whom had sub-500 years, and are not to be confused with the Cal/USC or Florida/Tennessee of their respective conferences.

Where is the Big Ten, Big East, or ACC team worth playing? Notre Dame? A top school from a mid-major conference, like Louisville? The Big 12 are a bunch of pansies when it comes to scheduling. Yes, I know that Texas and TT won their bowl games. That doesn' t make 'em less of a pansy schedule team.

  • I concur. I really think it would have been a better ballgame if Auburn was playing USC, or better yet, Auburn vs Utah with the winner against USC.

    PS. I know that picture is not you Hammertime. MrsHammer maybe..........

  • Yes, it is MrsHammer. I posted it to log hits on the hot blonde chick jpeg. Hey, you never know, some folks who like hot blonde chick pics are also capable of intelligent discussion!

  • Aaah! I hope you got the "hot blond chicks" permission before flagrantly flaunting her to the masses ;) Hope you have (had) a good time in VA for the wedding.

    cheers,

  • Perhaps you would shift this discussion to pro football now?
