    When did the Big XII become the Pac 10?

    Offenses in the Big XII are unbelievable right now and no one can seem to make a stop on defense. Looks like the Pac 10 from a few years ago, when every game was in the 50's. I'd like to see a little defense mixed in from time to time.

    As a result of the offenses, it seems like the defense is always on the field, there's a disparity with time of possession. Case in point the KU-MU game, that was exciting but somewhat ridiculous at the same time.

    If the clones could improve on defense and make some stops, they have enough on offense to win games. They don't need to throw up 50 on the board like the other teams and could have a good balance with time of possession.

    Not with our defense. I would guess we have the worst defense in the Big12.

    Re: When did the Big XII become the Pac 10?

    I don't know that some of these offenses are stoppable with a college level defense. You've got a lot of seasoned QBs and a lot of really good WRs and a lot of really good lines. The Big XII has just really really good offenses this year. I guess we will see in the bowl season how they stack up out of conference, but I don't really think that the Ds are that awful. The Os are just REALLY good.
