    What if Big XII Divisions

    With all the discussion around the Big ten divisions I was just thinking what if the Big XII would have put competition, budgets, rivalires etc... rather than geography. This is the way I would split the divisions:

    Big 6
    OU - Big budget, rival Neb
    Neb - Big budget, rival OU
    KSU - Med size budget recent success (at the time), rival game could be KU
    OSU - Med size budget, rival OU
    CU - Med size budget, rival Neb
    ISU - small budget

    Southwest
    Tx - Big budget, rival TAM and rival game OU
    TAM, Big budget, rival Tx
    TTU, Medium budget, rival ?
    Mizz, Medium budget, rival KU
    KU, Medium budget, rival Mizz
    Baylor, small budget

    I know this doesn't matter but thought it was a fun exercise. Also, if Nebby got to keep their rival game with OU maybe more satisfied and maybe never leaves? Probably not worth considering.

    Have at it.

    Yeah, looks good. I posted once suggesting Big 6 / SW except I put CU and OSU (they were 7 and 8)in the SW. Anyhoo, it's over now. I know the $$$ don't make sense but it'd be nice to try 12 teams again and do a better job of it this time around*.
