    Exactly the way it should be. The Big 12 deserves this

    Looks good to me. In the end, teams like OU and even KSU really hurt the Big 12. Two very good teams and then a big drop off.

    Big 12 screwed TCU with their scheduling.

    I think Oregon wins pretty easily over FSU. Bama will be tested by OSU.

    CU and Nebraska leaving the B12 crippled that conference. Think the four teams picked are the right teams IMO.

    Would the Big12 have gotten shut out if Baylor or TCU wore burnt orange or Sooner red?

    I would like to think that the shenanigans that the Big XII offices pulled with the "co-champions" nonsense, even when their own pre-determined champion factors would have declared Baylor to be the only Big XII champion had some impact on this, as the committee would consider a "co-champion" to be less of a "champion" than a team that actually won a conference championship game. The "co-champion" nonsense was so obviously a ridiculous ploy to get one or two Big XII teams into the 4-team bracket, that the irony of it actually screwing over Baylor of TCU would be delicious. The Playoff Selection Committee Chairman denied it, and I tend to believe him with the total beat down that OSU put on Wisconsin yesterday was the real factor.

    They were non-committal as they didn´t want to piss off either Baylor or TCU by siding with the other and ended in the end managed to piss both off.

    Not that I think Wisconsin is anything special, but OSU earned their spot with that dominance last night. I think they potentially give Bama fits.

    the Bigtex Conference ....... No True Champion

    that has a nice ring to it


    I wonder if the cfp committee pull up their tie-breaker rules. I can just see them reviewing the rules, determining bailer owns the tie break, confirming that bailer is the lowest qualified of the three, and then deciding that this fact eliminates both teams; blowhio st backs in as a result.

    brwahahahahaha

    fify. Texass' prima donna behavior was a condition precedent to CU, Nubb, and Mizzou leaving the conference.

    Yes. I know you think the Pac-12 is not very good, but Oregon will take advantage of Winston starting slow.

    You're right ... how could I forget them? :huh:

    In any case, UT's arrogance caused the most widespread exodus of member schools in college sports history. Way to go, Texass!

    Makes sense from a tv-footprint perspective but dilutes the conference brand, IMO.

    If we learned anything from this morning's selection show ... it's that the Big XII's "conference brand" isn't worth a bucket of warm spit these days.

    Memphis brings a bowl tie-in due to the FedEx sponsorship. They'd actually be a pretty good fit.

    And the conference will quickly be back to its old problems of North/South imbalance.

    North: WVU, Cincy, Memphis, Iowa St, KU, KSU
    South: UT, TTU, TCU, Baylor, OU, Okie Lite

    They'll get exceptionally strong in basketball, though.
