    I'm choosing to refuse to acknowledge that any bowls were played by Big XII teams. Everybody on the conference football teams just had a nice Christmas/New Year's Eve with their family while catching up with old friends.

    Rough year for Big XII in bowl games.
    Luckily we will be rolling in the dough for 9 teams going bowling. But dayum some trophies would be nice to go with that money.

    What a debbie downer bowl season for the group. Looking like the BIG. This may turn out to be the most lopsided B12 bowl game.

    Re: Big 12 gettin worked tonight

    It tells me this:
    The top half of the SEC is damn good.
    Bob Stoops has just as much trouble as CPR on getting the team ready for bowl games.
    Texas A&M's win over Bama this year was certainly no fluke.
    If I hear "Johnny Football" or "Belldozer" one more time this season, I will write hate mail to every media outlet in the nation.

    The media hard-on for Johnny Football is ridiculous. I get that he is a good QB, but this is honestly getting a little bit silly.

    That is why I didnt watch the game. That and both teams make me want to puke, so why put myself through that.

    Agreed. And we have to put up with this crap for at least 2 more seasons until he's eligible for the NFL draft, right?

    I think he can go pro next year as a RS Sophomore. You need three years in NCAA before you can declare.

    Re: Big 12 gettin worked tonight

    Power-numbers may have indicated differently throughout the year, but I don't think Big 12 is as good this season as in 2011.

    More balanced in intra-league play? Definitely.

    I just don't think it had the oomph this season. Not a lot to boast at the top in regular season -- KSU beat OU, which lost to ND at home and then K-State got thrashed by Baylor ... bowls don't tell us everything, but it's, unfortunately, not a special year for this conference.

    Re: Big 12 gettin worked tonight

    Anyone that thought OU had a chance in this game is nuts ... Sooners don't tackle well (hello Tavon Austin rushing for 350 yards might have been a little preview of Manziel cutting them up on the ground) and against teams that can match them physically and athletically, Stoops' teams have been soft for quite some time

    I guess one season is better than two, but it'll still be way too many "Johnny Football" references...

    Re: Big 12 gettin worked tonight

    I don't want to start a "bash our offensive system" thread, but OU's offense against A&M looks a lot like ours. Every single play features Landry Jones standing in the middle of the field. Passes batted down, sacks, seems like the only time they get out of the pocket is when Jones has to scramble. Sometimes he hands off, sometimes he throws, but A&M has figured it out, just like everyone has figured our offense out.
