    Big 12 or B1G?

    Which conference is better? Dealing with a dumb Hawk fan. I know I may get some biased answers.

    Give us some context? If you are talking about this year in football then you shouldn't need to ask for help. It isn't even close this year.

    Re: Big 12 or B1G?

    In terms of football and most collegiate sports? Is that even a real question?

    Re: Big 12 or B1G?

    If we're talking football, the Big 12 and it's not even close.
    The Big 12 is currently ranked the #1 football conference, even ahead of the SEC. We also had the best Non-conference record.
    And when looking at head-head matchups of the Big 12 vs Big 10, I know we're at least 1-0. ha
    Even the Big 10 homers can accept the fact the Big 12 is better than the Big 10 this year. Walk up to the hawk fan and slap him in the face and then kick him in the shin and tell him to wake the **** up and stop being ignorant.

    If they are arguing with you just stop, because there is no way you will convince them. If they believe the Big 10 is still better this year, they are stupid and stubborn beyond reason.

    We had the best non conference record of any conference in like 15 years or something. The Big 10 is rivaling the Big East for bottom of the barrel BCS conference.

    Are you serious, these Big 10 team are absolutely awful. I really think the Big 10 is stating to feel the impact of demographics. Recruiting base keeps getting smaller, they have no presence in Texas, CA or FL. The quality has been going downhill for years now. In 20 years this conference is going to be the MAC at this rate.

    Going to have to go with the B1G only because of conference stability.

    Even the Hawk / Husker radio stations in Omaha acknowledge that the Big 12 is the better conference from top to bottom.

    The conversation is about which conference is better this year in college football. Try to keep up.

    B1G is more stable. That argument is fairly airtight.

    Big Ten and Big 12 both have some good teams in the top half. B1G is far weaker at the bottom (although KU isn't looking too competitive right now, either) Minnesota is awful, Indiana is bad.

    Oklahoma would win either conference this season.
