    I don't know why they have a Big 12 Championship game between the South and North, a much better game would involve a rematch between the # 1 and 2 teams in the South. Wake me up when this game finally gets competitive.

    Missouri's not that much worse than Oklahoma, not by a longshot. OU's just completely got Missouri's number, just like Missouri's got CU's right now.

    If the two best teams in the conference played in the B-12 championship, OU-UT would play every year :huh:

    Actually, this year OU and TT would have played. Because OU "won" the south, that meant that 2nd place was decided by head to head between UT and TT, which means TT finished 2nd in the south

    if there was to be any justice in this hypothetical, bizzarro world we are imagining here, the tiebreaker rules would be utilized to put the two best teams in the CCG, and that excludes Tech.

    rules are created by humans. humans aren't perfect. therefore, the rules are not perfect.

    You think the difference in talent between Mizzou and OU is a valid explanation for why all of their games end up as giant blowouts? I think that argument would hold water if OU always beat Missouri by 10 to 14 points, not 30 to 50.

    Stoops just owns either Pinkel or Daniels... I guess we'll have a chance to figure out which one it is not too long from now.

    Im just saying, last week, according to the BCS OU was the best team from the south. That left TT and UT to determine 2nd best and at that point they go to head to head and BCS rankings have nothing to do with determining 2nd place--which would go to TT because of the head to head game.

    You suggesting yesterday's result would have been much different had it been Nebraska or Kansas representing the North? :rolleyes:

    Possibly. KU only lost to OU by 14 this year, so obviously they can hang with the Sooners to a certain degree (the Nubs... uhh, not so much). Regardless, even if KU had gone and done better than Missouri (which wouldn't be any sort of grand accomplishment considering how monumentally horrible Mizzou played yesterday) that would have been a result of superior game planning and execution, not superior talent.

    Ralph you are frickin nuts.. I don't think there's one player on Missouri's starting 22 that would start at OU with the exception of maybe Maclin.. And that's a maybe, because the OU receivers are pretty damn good too..

    OU has better players and better coaches.. They could play 10 times, and Missouri would lose 10 times..



    And nice job of Pinkel and his OC clowns having Daniel running QB draws against OU.. Almost as stupid as our OC running Little Hawk QB draws..

    tell me how much time was left in the game OU/KU when KU scored their last 2 td's and what "string" defense was this against? oh, btw, this was the 1st game after Texas and OU was still adjusting to losing Ryan Reynolds the starting MLB the week before....

    Math Problem:

    If Missouri beats Colorado 58-0, and Oklahoma beats Missouri 62-21, than what's the score if Oklahoma played Colorado :huh:

    Hmmm.....

    Bigger revenge game than Texas Tech
    Home Field
    Non existent pass rush
    Non existent offense keeps non existent pass rush on the field........

    I remember watching Penn State beat Cincinnati 81-0 in 1991....it probably would have been something similar to that. Quite possibly a momentum destroyer since it would have been on Saturday Night on ABC or something similar

    Here's the sad truth
    Big 12 Football Championbship Game Scores

    2008 Big 12 Championship
    Oklahoma 62 - Missouri 21
    2007 Big 12 Championship
    Oklahoma 38 - Missouri 17
    2006 Big 12 Championship
    Oklahoma 21 - Nebraska 7
    2005 Big 12 Championship
    Texas 70 - Colorado 3
    2004 Big 12 Championship
    Oklahoma 42 - Colorado 3
    2003 Big 12 Championship
    Kansas State 35 - Oklahoma 7
    2002 Big 12 Championship
    Oklahoma 29 - Colorado 7
    2001 Big 12 Championship
    Colorado 39 - Texas 37
    2000 Big 12 Championship
    Oklahoma 27 - Kansas State 24
    1999 Big 12 Championship
    Nebraska 22 - Texas 6
    1998 Big 12 Championship
    Texas A&M 36 - Kansas State 33 - 2 OT
    1997 Big 12 Championship
    Nebraska 54 - Texas A&M 15
    1996 Big 12 Championship
    Texas 37 - Nebraska 27

    OU has dominated this game with six championships, so much for parity.
    The last time a south team won was 5 years ago. I was at the 2006 game freezing my ass off, and the 21 - 7 score wasn't as close as it sounds. We were fighting Big Red fans to get out of the stadium early in the 4th quarter. Go Big Red - get in your cars!

    I assume you mean North? Or I'm really confused.

    Yep, South has won 7 of the last 9 and the 2 North victories were both considered upsets.

    When was the last time the North team was actually the favorite going into the game? I'm thinking it must have been Neb. in '99? :lol: :sad1:

    Speaking of freezing.. why do they play this game in KC? They need to move it back to Houston or San Antonio and play it inside.

    If they're going to play it in the cold, why isn't Invesco considered for it? It makes sense Geographically, it's a great city, the airport has flights from any possible city... JMO

    But overall, they need to move it back to an inside venue, not to mention, KC's playing surface is awful!

    They want to move it around so that it's not always in the South. I agree, though, Sparrowhead is teh succ.

    Actually, I'm not sold on Texass yet. I certainly wouldn't hand the any trophies to them a year in advance. If they pound osu, then I'll put them up there as a nc contender in 09. But I need some convincing.

    I know this article is dated, but I think he's a sure 1-2 rounder.
