    Alabama will embarrass Texas.

    Re: the big 12 is down

    Texas is certainly going to have their hands full with Alabama..

    You never know, though. It's always tough to decide these things before seeing teams head-to-head. Nebraska's defense could play out of their minds again and give them a chance..

    Re: the big 12 is down

    That is some major hyperbole. Yes, the Big XII is down. Not a chance the conference goes winless in bowl games, though. We've got some solid depth in the conference. That said, I'm not making predictions until I see the matchups.

    I bet the Big 12 won't be as embarrassing as some think.

    Also, that Championship game showed me nothing to tell me that the Big12 is down compared to other leagues.

    Texas did not look too hot in their prior game also. Alabama is the real deal.

    Re: the big 12 is down

    Actually I expect to see the following teams certainly win their bowl games:

    Texas A&M
    Missouri
    Nebraska
    Oklahoma

    These teams either have top 15-20 offensive talent or top 10 defensive talent.

    I think Iowa State and Texas Tech will have a great opportunity to win.

    The only two teams that really could struggle in the post-season is Texas and Oklahoma State.

    I would put a lock on the Big12 winning the Insight bowl. I don't care who the Big12 sends, they will beat Minnesota.

    Re: the big 12 is down

    Everyone was also saying that the Big 12 south teams were playing to get killed by Texas. Texas was incredibly lucky to win that one. I think that Texas beats Alabama.

    Re: the big 12 is down

    As long as the Big 12 goes against a couple of Big 10 teams the Big 12 will not go winless...

    Really, it seems like all of football is down this year, especially at the top. No team really seems like a true championship team.

    The Big 12 Championship game showed us all just how good WE are, nothing else.

    Not very? 1 win against a team with a winning record and a couple bad losses?

    I, I forgot, to the Playstation generation any time the score isn't 65-58, the teams suck.

    Typical ballwatching ignorance. What most people saw were two unbelievable defenses slugging it out. What Playstation junkies saw was something that couldn't satisfy their ADHD.
