    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.

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

    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.
