    Bad Sign: OK State Lost to Oregon (12 seed)

    Not a good sign for Big XII teams.

    Well, Oregon did win the Pac-12, and the Pac 12 has been undefeated today.

    Oregon was horribly under-seeded

    Oregon is an exceptional 12 seed. I wouldn't read too much onto it. No day they should have been seeded that low.

    The Big 12 was crappy all year. That's not breaking news to those who look at things objectively.

    I gotta give the Pac12 some credit though. They've redeemed themselves after the last couple years of garbage.

    Re: Bad Sign: OK State Lost to Oregon (12 seed)

    Look at it this way- Oregon had a chip on their shoulder because they were under-seeded. OSU also got stuck playing a better team than they should have, which no one talks about.

    Neither Oregon nor Cal deserved to be 12-seeds. The entire Pac 12 was horribly underseeded.
