    Is dog s.h.i.t. They all looked horrible in their bowl games. The way OU played, the playoff committee will think twice before putting another B12 team in the playoffs. Imagine had that game been between Stanford and Clemson. Who wouldn't love to see that game?

    I'd like to wish it would reflect poorly on the Big 12, but I am not sure what happened will do much in the future.To me, it showed there were a lot of have's and a lot of have not's, this year. I don't remember there being so many blowouts in the past. The Big 12 was on the wrong end of most of those games.

    Bowl games this year SUCKED...so many blowouts. MSU should've lost to Michigan and didn't deserve to be in the playoffs...Stanford or OSU would've been a better choice. Not sure what happened to OU, but the Big 12 looked horrible...I expect Oregon to give TCU a whoopin', though I don't know how ASU will look against WVU. Meanwhile, the PAC12 is 6-2 so far in bowl games so far...hopefully 8-2 when all is said and done.

    TCU's off-field probs robs college football fans from seeing Boykin, too. It's hard to argue the B12 is putting a better product on the field than any of the other power conferences.

    On paper, it's easy to understand the enticement of a Clemson and Oklahoma matchup. Just didn't play out that way. Stanford laid a couple eggs themselves this season, so really you never know. Agreed that the Stanford team that showed up yesterday against the Clemson team that showed up in the second half of their game would have been a good game.

    Yeah, the hindsight in this thread is a bit over the top. Stanford and Ohio State only have themselves to blame for not making the top 4.

    The SEC got their asses kicked As did the B1G as did the Texas10. There area a lot teams that clearly are missing something and only a couple that are complete teams.

    Meh

    Exactly. From what we've seen, the 4 best teams are Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and Stanford. And maybe we'll actually be saying Oregon after their game. But those teams didn't earn it. Oregon I can chalk up to injuries, but Furd and OSU lost games that a playoff team simply can't lose.

    I was really looking forward to the Oregon/TCU game. Oregon was playing great football by season's end, and TCU can light up the scoreboard just as well. Too bad Boykin couldn't refrain from taking a swing at a cop for a few more days.

    Well, TCU just shot this whole theory to Hell. Thanks a lot, Oregon. I hate those guys.

    It's pretty funny that oregon's backup qb has no skills whatsoever.

    It's predictive of oregon's future under helfrich.

    Believe me, I'd like nothing more than to go in there next year and beat those guys.

    We need a lot of teams in the Pac 12 to regress - a lot. Todays news about Watts isn't exactly helping matters.

    It's amazing how Oregon is a completely different team with Adams. I mean, they're playoff-worthy with a good QB running the show and bowl-borderline without that QB. I don't think I've ever seen a team that Jekyll & Hyde.

    Who you kidding? We've been evolving into Mr. Hyde for almost a decade now. Dr. Jekyll doesn't show up much anymore
