Big12 North had a appx decade where they dominated the South. Remember those real good Nebraska and Colorado teams? And KSU too. People forget, but the South was an also ran for quite a while.It's honestly worse than the old B12 North/South disparity
These things tend to be cyclic, based on coaches. But not the b1g right now, all the traditiknal powers w the reccruiting are all together.
But b1g has it set up just the way they want it. Puff up an avg west team and then crush them. Its a feature, not a bug.
