    Re: Big 12 / SEC Championship Game

    It's wierd because I doubt there will be very many years when the two conference champions end up playing against each other in this bowl. The odds are that for any given year at least one of the two champions, and most likely both of them, will be among the top four top ranked teams who will complete in the championship playoffs.

    Exactly. Nothing really to get excited about.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: Big 12 / SEC Championship Game

    I suppose if the two champs did meet it would be considered a down year...

    Re: Big 12 / SEC Championship Game

    In the event that the champion is in the playoffs, wouldn't the runner-up be included similar to the rose bowl?

    What? This is something to get very excited about. This isn't about the game itself but the relationship that the SEC and Big XII have made. There are clearly 4 top tier conferences now and the Big XII is one of them.

    It appears so. My question is how does this affect the Big 12's at-large bowl bids. Scenario: Conf. champ is included in playoff so runner-up goes to Big 12 / SEC bowl game. Does that mean the other eligible teams move up in the "order" for the remaining bowls?

    Re: Big 12 / SEC Championship Game

    How will this affect other bowl games/pecking order?


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Re: Big 12 / SEC Championship Game

    Is there still going to be BCS bowls with a move to a playoff or will we go back to the pre BCS days?

    Re: Big 12 / SEC Championship Game

    Bargaining chip with the Big 10 and Pac 12 in the current BSC negotiations!

    I am sure it is no conincedence that they say it is going to be played in prime time on New Year's Day.

    Smart move, and will mean more money to the Big 12.

    Re: Big 12 / SEC Championship Game

    I would be shocked if this game isn't at JerryWorld, considering his ties to both conferences, the fact that he hasn't had a BCS bowl yet, and that the state of Texas is the only Big 12/SEC overlap (for now... FL and SC soon to join that list )

    If I've learned anything about Iowa State, it's that the Cyclones have never backed away from a challenge.
