    Bad Year for Big 12 Bowls

    What will be the highest ranking for a Big 12 team?


    Big 12 went 3-5 with Okie State being the most impressive BIG 12 game. Worst effort was by Texas A&M although Texas performance was mystifying. Missouri blew it. Texas Tech set a record comeback. Oklahoma semi blew it. Kansas State did not show up. Nebraska proved the west coast offense is undependable with Mo Purify a no show. Missouri blew it. A wasted bowl year for the Big 12 - more head shaking.

    Oklahoma may be #15 as highest ranked Big 12 team. HARD TO BELIEVE.

    Re: Bad Year for Big 12 Bowls

    although the final rankings won't show this... the teams the Big12 lost too have a combined record of 55-11 (with Oregon State and Cal having 7 of those losses). That's right, our opponents averaged 11 wins and 2 losses for the season. Looks like a tough schedule.

    I wouldn't shake that head too hard or hang that hat too low.

    - keep.

    May you only need 39 acres to turn your rig around. - keep

    Good point keep...yet the Big 12 just wasn't all that great this year. And that's certainly not just based on what happened last night.

    It could be worse...we could be from the "little eleven"!



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

    Re: Bad Year for Big 12 Bowls

    Did you truly not see this coming? The only loss I'm truly surprised by is the OU loss, and I'm not really even blown away by that one.

    Re: Bad Year for Big 12 Bowls

    What is the big 10's record in bowl games? The OU loss was a little surprising as I thought they were going to run all over BSU. But it was a heck of a game and a instant classic.

    Still shaking my head on the Chase Daniel Missouri detonation. He is like a Drew tate.
