    Who would you like to represent the BigXII in the BCS?

    If everything works out, and we get a team in the championship game, what team do you want it to be.

    MU or KU...NOT OU...We don't need to encourage TU or OU to keep winning.

    I don't really have a reason, but I'd like to see Missouri in a BCS game.

    That was actually part of why I voted for OU. I didn't want to encourage MU or KU to start winning.

    I would like to see whatever BIG 12 team has the best chance of winning the national championship play in the national championship game. However at this point, I'm unsure which team that is.

    After Oregon lost last night, I would now think the only way the Big12 is not represented in the championship would be if we beat Kansas and they went on to win the title. So I'll take Missouri.

    Just not KU their fans are horrible. A basketball season of them is bad enough having to listen to them during football season is like being in hell.

    Gotta pull for MU or KU. For years all we've heard is how "terrible" the Big12 North Division was/is. Even earlier this season, media from local to national would barely mention any team in the North, unless it was to either say how awful the division is or to say NE is on the verge of rebuilding it's "supremecy." A North team (other than NE) in the BCS Championship would instantly give every team in the division a huge boost.

    gotta pull for anyone but KU because if you are pulling for them, that is kind of like pulling for them to beat us tomorrow isn't it?

    I agree with your logic. I am sick and tired of hearing how the Big 12 is mainly Texas and Oklahoma, and Nebraska in the past, it would be good to see a new name. If the Big 12 north becomes stronger as a result, all the better for our recruiting.

    Re: Who would you like to represent the BigXII in the BCS?

    I'm going to have to go with Missouri.

    The last thing we need as fans is Kansas fans with an even greater power trip than they already get with their basketball team. They're a basketball school and they never fail to trumpet their success on the court - we don't need them foaming at the mouth about the gridiron as well. Plus, as BET said above, cheering for KU to go all the way in a sense is cheering for them to beat us this week.

    As far as Oklahoma, I can't even remember the last time I even wanted them to win. Why would I start now?

    That leaves Missouri. I've always viewed Mizzou our less educated, less intelligent, 3 or 4 times removed, inbred cousins. No matter how much you don't get along with them, and no matter how asinine they can be, you always want your family to succeed because you'd at least rather see them succeed than some other d-bag on the block. That's why I'm cheering for Mizzou to win this - they're very similar to us history-wise (excluding all of that less educated, less intelligent, inbred thing) and I figure if Mizzou can pull this off there's no reason why we can't.

    If KU gets in, it's because they beat us on Saturday and I want my Clones to win!!

    Re: Who would you like to represent the BigXII in the BCS?

    "What Big XII team do you want to reach the title game?"

    ummm...Iowa State?

    lol, I know it isn't possible but someone should have ruled that one out considering this is CycloneFanatic.com.

    If I had to choose I would like to see Mizzou. I know they are a rival and a trophy team we play every year...but I am sick of seeing the big 12 south getting all the props and I hate Stoops and Oklahoma so that rules them out. I would say Kansas bcuz coming into 2007 they had to be one of the last big 12 teams you woulda guessed would be in their position, HOWEVER: IOWA STATE PUTS MORE PEOPLE IN THE STANDS THAN AN UNDEFEATED KANSAS TEAM. Kansas' fans are pathetic (at least when it comes to football) so they don't deserve to be in the BCS. SO I would hafta go with Mizzou.

    Here's to it being Iowa State that we are talking about in the BCS this time NEXT year!!!
