    No Bowl Game for Texas?

    Have to think there is a real good shot of both Okie State and A&M beating Texas, even though those games are at home. Who would've thought there'd come a year where ISU had a better shot at making a bowl game than the Longhorns.

    I'm telling you it's very strange here in Austin. People are fighting mad here.

    Huh, only one team in the South has a losing record. I feel terrible for their suffering

    Who would have thought that the best thing in Texas Football right now is the Baylor Bears?

    Its very weird. Apparently their chemistry is all messed up. No reason to struggle that much.

    Re: No Bowl Game for Texas?

    Let's recap:

    Worst team in B12 north: New conference -- they're your problem now, Pac-12

    Worst team in B12 south: Calling the shots last summer

    Mizzou: Briefly achieves top-5 status, bowl bound

    K-State: Bowl bound

    Baylor: Beats UT, bowl bound

    ISU: likely bowl bound

    Four of the "forgotten five" will [likely] be playing in bowls this holiday season. Not too shabby.

    I hope UT gets their humble hat on, they might be home for the Holidays. I'm glad to see them knocked down a few pegs...they won't be going anywhere.

    The best thing in Texas football is TCU and there isn't a close second.

    If we want to make it to one of the bowls in Texas, which we really need to make, we should be rooting against Texas.

    Re: No Bowl Game for Texas?

    I think it has become quite clear the the Longhorns don't belong in the Big 12. Their bball team has underperformed for the last several years, and their football team isn't even going to post a 6-6 record to make a crappy bowl game. They don't have any historical ties to half the teams in the conference, and I think their fanbase would be happier if they weren't even here anymore. I say we put it to a vote and kick the horns out so we can have a real Texas college football power like TCU in our conference. They would bring the prestige of another national title contender to the conference, and would help us tap into those Texas markets.

    Unless you see Tech losing to both Weber State and Houston, I think we still get the short end of the stick for the Big XII bowls. I just hope we end up somewhere like the Liberty or Las Vegas bowls.

    Re: No Bowl Game for Texas?

    Is it perhaps fortunate for Texas that this meltdown for Texas football happened after all the expansion talks? I mean, before the season, they were essentially holding the Big 12's future in their hands, correct?

    Had they left to perhaps go to the Pac 10, or maybe even start their own conference, they would have been able to do it, no? Being NCG runners up, potential 2010 NCG participants, etc. But imagine if the expansion talks happened after this season. Would Texas hold nearly as much sway?

    EDIT:
    And yes, I know that expansion goes beyond football, but come on. We all know that for many schools, football is what directs the athletic department's decisions.

    I would love to play in the Las Vegas Bowl, looks like Utah will be playing there which would count us more than likely out...
