    Who should win the South?

    Oklahoma is currently leading Ok State, but not by much. If Oklahoma wins, who do you think should get to play Missouri?

    I believe that Tech is out of the picture at this point. If so, I think Texas should be the winner since they beat Oklahoma. What is your opinion?

    Re: Who should win the South?

    Eh, I think Oklahoma is a better team now than when they played Texas.

    It's too bad the Red River Shootout can't be at the end of the season.

    so long as OU doesnt represent the Big XII again in the BCS. Never again after last year....

    Apparently, whoever the last team with the football is should win the South.

    Re: Who should win the South?

    I really dont understand the argument that Texas should go because they beat Oklahoma head to head. Why wouldnt Texas Tech be in that argument? Do people not remember that Tech beat Texas. This is just an idiotic argument. And by the way, the tiebreaker IS head to head. They are just all tied. The current system is the correct one, give the highest ranked team the chance to try for a national title. I just dont know how people cant understand that.

    How is Tech out of the picture? The Big 12 is based on performance on the field. Its just like USC OSU in the pac ten, everyone knows USC is better, but you cant say OSU doesnt deserve it.

    I think the point is who should be the highest ranked team by the voters.

    Last 4 appearances....
    2008 L 48-28 to West freakin Virginia
    2007 L 43-42 to Boise freakin State
    2005 L 55-19 to USC
    2004 L 21-14 to LSU....the only respectable loss of the 4 (they lost to K-State in the Big XII championship game - the last time the North won the Big XII)

    Re: Who should win the South?

    I firmly believe Texas belongs in this Championship game.....If things hold up with OU wining....

    You tell me how a Coach could look in his players eyes and tell them we are not in the championship game, but the two teams playing......Missouri and OU.........We beat them both......

    I do not care what formula you use, no other Team can say that.......

    Say what?

    The reason that Tech is mostly out of the argument is because of the horrid showing they had at Oklahoma which dropped them in the BCS rankings. There is no way that Tech beating Baylor will move them up enough spaces to think of winning the south; so the decision is between Oklahoma and Texas. Since Texas won head to head against Oklahoma, it should be Texas that should win.

    You said that you thought this is the right system, this system does not provide Tech a chance at winning the south. Who do you want to win?
