    Better...North or South?

    After KSU and CU beating the two possible BCS title teams from the Big 12......the league seems turned upside down for a bit. What do you thing is stronger?

    The conferences good teams have been overrated, when in actuality they are closer to the rest of the pack. Call it another down year in the Big 12 or call it parity.

    I say South still gets more wins, but North will get a lot more respect. Either way, the road just got harder for us.

    Re: Better...North or South?

    I think the North is on an upswing, with mostly new coaches getting their programs together, and the South is on a little downswing. The South is still better.

    Re: Better...North or South?

    I think OU wins the south, and NU still wins the north. Then OU will crush NU. Remember Florida lost a game early last year.

    Good point, but I'm not sure if the team UF lost to was equivalent to Colorado or not. If a lot of teams lose around the country and OU goes strong the rest of the way, they're not completely out.

    Re: Better...North or South?

    I think the North wins this weekend are simply showing that the league is competitive, but in the end OU and UT will outlast the others with the larger talent pools.

    Big XII North

    I would like to give props to the supposed weaker North division. Guess the Big XII North isn't as weak as all the experts thought.

    I think the South is still better but just not as good as everyone thought it was.

    Florida lost to Auburn last year.

    I think that the North is probably better top to bottom this year, but I still think Oklahoma will win the Big XII. They just quit in the CU game after going up 24-7. I don't think that will happen to them again.

    I think its likely that the North actually wins more games than the south this year.

    Re: Better...North or South?

    Kansas State almost (and should have) beat Auburn on the road, and then embarrassed Texas on Saturday. They get my nod for the team to beat in the North.
