    "Best of the Big 12" - The Oklahoman

    I came across an interesting article in The Oklahoman that came out of the Big 12 Conference Media Day last week. The writer polled the Big 12 players who were at the event and asked them a number of questions including which conference school has the best stadium, which has the best fans, the best uniforms, the best mascot, etc.

    Here are a few snippets that came out of the article:

    Best Stadium:

    1. Daryl Royal (Texas) 32%
    2t. Memorial Stadium (Nebraska) 20%
    2t. Kyle Field (Texas A & M )20%

    By the way, Jack Trice was voted worst, followed by Baylor and Missouri.

    Best Fans:

    1. Nebraska 29%
    2. Texas A & M 24%

    Texas Tech was voted as having the worst fans, hands down.

    Best Uniforms:

    1. Texas Tech 26% (I don't think they look that great)
    2. Texas 21%

    For some reason, the Cyclones were voted as having the worst uniforms. I would have thought Baylor would have been selected as the worst.

    Best Mascot:

    1. Ralphie (Colorado) 25%
    2. Bevo (Texas) 20%

    Poor Cy got no love here either, he was selected as worst.

    School You Would Choose To Attend (other than your present school):

    1. Texas 43%
    2. Colorado 14%

    I found it interesting to see what conference players would say about other schools/programs, but boy there sure wasn't a lot of love for Iowa State there.

    I don't mind the multiple posts here, but I grew really tired of hearing about it over and over and over on KXNO. I know there is not a lot to talk about during the summer, but I think the 3 shows need to at least try to talk about something different.

    Some of those quotes are absolutely brutal..

    "The worst mascot is the Iowa State Tornadoes, or whatever they're called." — a Big 12 South offensive player

    "That was the first game I started in. At the time, I thought it was cool. Until I played in everyone else's stadium." — a Big 12 South offensive player, on Jack Trice Stadium

    "We went up there two years ago and it looks like a McDonald's, all red and yellow. It looks kind of funny." — a Big 12 North offensive player, on Jack Trice Stadium

    "They are a knock-off of USC. When I see it on film, I think 'What are we doing playing USC?' " — a Big 12 North offensive player, on Iowa State's uniforms
