Everyone except you is able to recognize that the Big XII has had the biggest games out of the conferences. I am siting the right now, look at all the posts you would think that when 99% of people say the Big XII is better than the SEC.

Correct me if Im wrong but was it not Michigan a Big Ten school who beat Florida in the Capital One bowl last year? 41-35 I think was the score?

florida sucked last year. they had like 4-5 losses. no defense. what's your point? the year before that the gators were more balanced. they won the NC.

Well Since 2003 your Gators are 2-3 in Bowl games, not very impressive. To save you the time Texas is 4-1. Hmmmm

we can continue to debate a moot point if you would like. they are big games to you, but seriously, texas tech football? I mean, really? auburn sucks this year but the iron bowl is still 10x any game texas tech has played in this year. how bad did it hurt to watch the longhorns get beat in front of a crowd of about 55,000? I mean really, 55,000? I saw a bigger crowd than that at a mccain/palin rally in harlem.

No team has been more pathetic in recent major bowl games than Oklahoma. It is a good thing Ohio State has taken attention away from the Sooners, because they have been AWFUL the past 5 years.

I didn't need the time thanks. again, they aren't my gators. I don't coach for them. I like when they do well, yet W-L's have no affect on my emotional state. you know what is impressive about the gators? their dominance for an entire year and a half. 2 bball chompionships, and a national chompionship.

CHOMP CHOMP.

what are you talking about? was it the thrashing that USC gave them? was it the embarrassment of losing to a mid major? was it getting crushed by a big east team? it wouldn't be so embarrassing if they weren't the conference champs. I would rather lose in the sun bowl to a team from the sun belt conference, than to lose in a BCS bowl. the BCS bowls are supposed to be for good teams!

Hey I wont get into the seeing the fans because I HATE Tech fans. However they do have a small stadium. Florida largest crowd ever to go to The Swamp, was 90,716 vs Tennessee in 2005.

Likewise, Darrell K Royal, largest crowd was this season with 98,518 beating the previous record of 98,383 from the week before.

Also 92,182 fans showed up for the Red River Rivalry

As to the Big XII having some of the biggest games of the year. Texas vs Texas Tech was the highest rated thing on TV with 10 million people watching. When Florida played LSU they got 6 million viewers, so I would say thats a pretty nice statement as to who has really had a game of the year. I can only imagine if Texas vs OU was played in primetime the numbers it would have gotten.

no one has worse fans than ohio state. I might hate VA tech fans more because I hate VA tech, but ohio state fans are the worst.
