Great comments. I have a few ramblings to add.
First of all, message to Bob Stoops: fix your #@$%ing program. With Mack Brown running things at UT, the only excuse you have for not owning this conference EVERY season is Bill Snyder. And if he had your talent, you'd have a coach that got wwwwwway more out of his team, wwwwwwway less media attention, and wwwwway less prima donna drama. Other than that, fix it. I hope you don't...
Defending his comments (and I probably haven't seen them all), he has a point. The middle of the Big 12 was arguably better than the middle of the SEC last season. But at the top...f u c k i n g forget about it. It's not even close. Another point- the Big 12 puts the teams at the upper end of the conf at a disadvantage vs the teams at the top of a split SEC that can miss brutal opponents.
The tide has turned. The Big 12 absolutely did have the power conference for many yrs since its inception. But that's just not the case now.
I like Bob Stoops. I understand the criticism that his own throw at him. He may need a change. He seems to be doing reps in his career right now, as opposed to demanding excellence.
