    Big XII title game

    So I know that a Nebraska win probably means 2 Big XII teams move up a slot in the bowl selections, but what does that mean with the current Insight Bowl turmoil.

    Is TAMU still going to Indy if NU wins the championship. I know all the speculation has said we're probably going to Texas Bowl or Insight with the Texas victory. Is it still between those two or does that move Mizzou up higher and put TAMU back in front of us?

    Just trying to figure out if I want to be cheering for NU or not.

    Re: Big XII title game

    No way aTm goes anywhere other than where they are. It sounds like they have been the one for a while. My guess is that Mizzou would move up to Alamo or Sun and we go to Insight. My feeling is that we were in the Insight prior to the Big XII commish sticking his nose in. We still may go to Insight. I think Insight and Texas are 50/50 if Texas wins, and 75/25 if NU wins. The Texas bowl would then need a non-Big XII team.

    Re: Big XII title game

    I am torn in this game and I was torn in the Big East game. I would love to see 5 undefeated teams in Cincy, Texas, FL/AL, TCU and Boise to prove the BCS is nothing but a disaster. I would not have minded to see a couple of other scenarios to keep a second Big 10 team out of the BCS but oh well. The BCS and bowl system is nothing but a bunch of bunk and needs to be revamped.

    A 16 team playoff and 16 -18 bowl games is more than enough.

    We are in the Insight either way.

    Re: Big XII title game

    I think nebraska winning makes it 100% that we're in insight, but pretty good odds even if texas wins we're there. If nebraska wins, another spot above insight would open up, but its likely they'd pick mizzou before us, leaving us at Insight.

    As for TAMU, if they were a threat for the insight over us, the talk would be them over missouri instead of us right now.

    About the only thing that's clear from this game is that this Texas team will get pimp slapped if they go up against the Tide.

    What a return! This is their best, and maybe last, opportunity to cash in.

    downside is if nebbie wins we don't get to rub it in Mizzou's face that we got picked ahead of them.

    Re: Big XII title game

    At this point in the progression of our program, I think it more important to go where we can get a win, rather than be concerned about where we go.

    The place we most want to go is also the place we are most likely to get a win. Insight.
