I'd still drink eggnog than watch a 6-6 Vandy or a no offense S. Carolina. But, that eggnog is heavy on alcohol, so that is a no brainer.

How do you figure both Texas and Oklahoma have teams that look like they will be back next year. Sorry but the Big XII is here for a while as much as you SEC people cant grasp that

I think both conferences are even enough.

In the Big 12 you have
Texas Tech
Texas
Oklahoma
Oklahoma State
Mizzou

In the SEC you have
Florida
Georgia
Alabama
LSU

But overall so far with what I've seen this season I'm going with the Big 12. So far I reckon Georgia are overrated, as to a lesser extent LSU. All the talks been about Texas Tech but Alabama are sitting pretty at the moment.

Thats how I feel from a non bias point of view
