    Big 12 has become the Big Ten

    In the scoring aspect. Check out the scores so far.
    Day 2:
    ISU 74, A&M 50
    BU 73, TT 60
    KU 72, OU 61
    KSU 75, Mizz 59

    Texas & OSU were tied at 21 at half.

    First games were equally low-scoring. I think ISU-UT game may have been the highest combined so far (148 points).

    I mention this only because (1) I didn't think the conference would be this "grounded" (2) when it happens in the Big Ten, it's assumed it's a "gritty" conference. (3) I wouldn't care either way, but ISU is (so far!) tied for 1st.

    No, it would be like the Big Ten if both teams scored in the 50's like Nebraska and Illinois did today.

    The Big 12 is a little down this year. Besides I dont care what scores are as long as we win.

    The Big Ten is terrible in football, but in basketball they are the best conference in the country this year and I'm not sure it's really close.

    Re: Big 12 has become the Big Ten

    Does that mean the Big Ten is now the Horizon League?

    Who do they have outside of OSU? Wisconsin, who lost to Iowa at home, with their only recognized player looking like a shell of himself this year? Or MSU? Or Purdue? I think the Big 12 with Mizzou, Kansas, and Baylor are deeper at the top. OSU is the best team in either conference, and is one of the dominant teams this year. All the conferences nation wide look to have more parity this year. Except for the SEC, where Kentucky will walk through everyone.

    Well, we do have 10 members and they have 12, so it makes sense.

    Re: Big 12 has become the Big Ten

    Expect more games like this, there's a lot of parity in the league this year and the new round robin format means teams get to see everyone twice.

    Whole heartedly agree! ISU beat KU 56-55 in the last Big 8 Championship. Nobody was complaining about low scores back when Floyd was coaching...

    Re: Big 12 has become the Big Ten

    Expect any game with OSU to be low-scoring. Whatever our defense is it seems to be working in the points-allowed per game column. If only the offense could do something....

    The Big Ten can't be that good if Iowa is winning games in conference play.

    IMO, the games have gotten so physical their isn't going to be a lot of high scores unless the refs call it really tight like they did in the ISU-Texas game. As a fan, neither is really a great option.
