    All they had to do was keep Crabtree out of the endzone on one play and there would have been NO asterix.

    Better yet, don't drop the INT on one of the previous plays...GAME OVER.

    A program with their tradition and history looks absolutely stupid doing something like that. Now for ISU, I think we should have built some huge memorial for our Big 12 North "title" a few years back!

    I like your quote RC. I once had a buddy try to tell me that that moive was based on Iowa (his UI grad father told him this). I didn't have the heart to tell him that his old man is full of **** and that it's based on Dartmouth (where co-writer Chris Miller had been a frat member).

    I agree that this asterisk buisiness appears petty and is beneath a program with a storied history such as UT has.

    I guess I see no problem with this. Texas beat OU and the only reason that they didn't play in the championship game was because of a subjective poll. In fact, shouldn't OU's championship have an astericks as well? They split the South title too didn't they.

    Well hang the 2004 North Division champ flag back on the press box at JTS.

    I see nothing wrong with it, they won it and should be allowed to proclaim it.

    Yet some rip ISU for doing the same thing.

    Uhhh.... UT is claiming to be champions of a game they didn't play in - that's what's wrong with this.

    Does Ole Miss have a banner in their football complex saying they are BCS champions for 08/09 because they beat Florida? Didn't think so.

    C'mon Texas, you're better than that.

    Agree totally - the Ole Miss analogy is right on.

    and I'm not one of them. Regardless of what people say, we earned that trophy and should be proud of it.

    I really do not feel like we "earned" anything after the way we lost to Missouri.

    I disagree with the premise that we "tied" for the division. Colorado defeated us, and both teams ended the year with the same divisional record (4-4), therefore Colorado won the division by virtue of head-to-head tiebreaker and went on to represent the North in the championship game. Colorado should have the only divisional trophy.

    Doesn't Colorado winning a tiebreaker imply that they were tied with someone? You can disagree all you want, but we tied with CU for the division crown according to the rules of the Big 12. It may seem meaningless since we didn't play in the CCG, but it's still a co-division title nonetheless.

    The only problem is that they didn't play in the title game.

    I claim the 2008 Big 12 Championship in the name of ISU.

    We didn't play in the game either.

    Sorry CarolinaCy I didn't see that you beat me to it. But tu is not better than that. They are exactly that.
