    We need a basement bowl

    I mentioned this once before, but the thread got deleted. Anyway, I think the Big 12 needs a "basement bowl" on the same day as the conference championship game, to determine last place in the conference. It also give the basement dwellers of the north & south divisions (probably usually ISU and Baylor) a leg up on the following year by giving players an extra game to develop experience, especially since neither team would likely be going to a bowl game.

    That is a dumb idea, no team would ever willingly go to play in a game like that. It would be a joke.

    It would be too embarassing. If I was a NFL prospect I would fake injury before playing in that.

    What self respecting team would want to compete in this event? Ending the season on a loss is a downer, ending the season on a loss in the "basement bowl" would be a blow to recruiting Im thinking.

    Isn't that what our bowl game was called in 2002?
