TCU or Baylor are hacks. The entire B12 is falling down hill. The only two programs Okie an Texie are sad teams on their way to the bottom. B12 is a joke. Passing the ball 50-60 times a game for style points is the fraud.
L.O.****ing.L

You are a complete joke and an obvious Ohio state fanboy. ESPN themselves rank the big 12 higher than the big 10. The big 10 is ridiculously weak. That was proven in the Wisconsin game. Just because Baylor and TCU dont have the national recognition/prestige of UT or OU doesn't mean they aren't worthy competition. This is a new era. The Big 12 will be even stronger next year.

We don't play for moral victories.

TCU has been in this position SEVERAL times before. All it shows is that even in a major conference, even with a playoff, we still have to go undefeated.

Texas Christian University (TCU) got screwed (again) like in years past. This time it was scheduling as they went in champion's week at #3 to dropping to #6 in the rankings due to playing a 2-10 team (Iowa State) while Baylor beat a 9-2 team (Wisconsin) and Ohio State University (OSU) beat a 10-2 team (Kansas State.) OSU dominated Kansas with a 59-0, had they not done that and it was much closer, I would agree they should have been in, hell if Bama and FSU lost, they would have likely got in over a 16 Missouri or an 11 Georiga Tech.

Personally I think Oregon got the best deal (yes I am a homer). Fl St are chumps not champs this year and Im glad we get them first. ONCE we win, and we will, Nick Sabin only has 11 days to perpare for Oregon...and to be honest, the fewer days he has the better. Can't wait for our "so so" defense to sack the crap out of the rapist.

The only one the big 12 has to blame is the commissioner for not declaring Baylor the conference champion. He screwed over his own conference..

And no. The big 12 did NOT "abandoned" it's conference championship game this year. It got dropped a few years back when mizzou and a&m left and there were no longer 12 teams (the minimum amount required for a conference championship) in the conference.

My mistake, I was flipping between tabs on chrome. Ohio beat Wisconsin and Baylor beat Kansas.

That's true, the issue is both teams went 11-1 but Baylor won by three in their meeting. Baylor however lost to West Virginia who TCU did beat.

I think that the commissioner should look to get two more teams again to allow for another B12 conference championship. Nothing wrong with having cupcake teams in a conference, every conference has one or two of them.
