    Big 12 South DOMINATES Big 12 North in FB

    It's more like the Big 6 and Little 6 than the Big 12.

    By my count, the South is 10-2 this year against the North teams. Clearly, the two best teams in the conference will not be playing in the Big 12 Championship game because from my perspective the 4 best teams in the conference all reside in the South...UT, OU, Tech, and Okie State.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Yeah Texas is pretty much in the title game if they can get by Texas T could be a Texas Mizz rematch.

    While what you are saying is true, it is nothign like in the past. Before the divide between the two was because the North was just plain bad. This year the disparity exists because 4 teams in the south are 4 of the best in the country. I don't think this takes anything away from the North at all.

    Maybe, but it still doesn't help our image. The big XII north only looks really good when the top teams don't play OU or UT... KU was overrated all year, as proved by their early performance against us, and Mizzou can't hang with the big boys yet (2 losses to OU last year, loss to UT and OSU this year). Defense is a problem in the entirety of the Big XII north. Don't give the offenses too much credit.

    Quite honestly though, I would not be one bit surprised if Mizzou and UT play in the Big 12 championship and Mizzou wins. It is being played in Arrowhead in December. So, an outside game in the freezing cold. Also, it would almost be considered a home game for Mizzou since it is right down I-70 from them.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Actually, defense is a problem in the entirety of the Big XII. If a team wins in the Big XII this year, give credit to the offense - they likely won in shoot-out fashion.

    I wouldn't be suprised to see Mizzou beat Texas in KC. It will be cold and a home game.

    Yeah, but last year the North won more games then the south in conferense play. Generally speaking, the south is normally stronger, but there are still up and downs and this is just a down year for the north.

    The way Mizzou defense is playing, Nebraska can sneak in if there is a tie between MO, KU, and NE at 5-3. That would mean Texas and NE in Championship Game - say 45-17 Texas? Just my penny's worth.

    I have a feeling TT will knock off UT this weekend - by a big margin.

    I think TT had it's first top 10 performance this season last week. They are lucky to be undefeated so far. Not saying it won't happen, but I don't see them beating Texas- certainly not by a large margin.

    Ditto. Texas is just good. I'm not sure how they continue to play top-ranked teams week in and week out and win - but they are.
