Chances at MNC Better Than Big XII Crown

First the bad news.  Our chances of the Big XII title virtually died with Okie State on that West Texas Prairie Saturday night.    Now the good news, we actually have a better shot at the BCS title game in Miami.

First of all, we only have 2 chances to go to the Big XII title game (Slm and none).  Scenario I is TT losing to both Baylor and Oklahoma.   Don't hold your breath. 

Scenario II is a 3 way tie with TT and Oklahoma.  Unfortunately, that scenario requires Oklahoma to beat both TT and Okie Lite.   If they accomplish that, they will almost certainly represent the Big XII South, because they lost their game earlier in the year on that glorious afternoon at the Cotton Bowl.  And don't say they could lose to Okie lite - as that would doom us to a two tie with TT advancing.

So how in the hell do we go to the MNC without winning the Big XII title?  The key is the Missouri Tigers.  Let the 3 way tie send Oklahoma - or the 2 way tie send TT.  If Mizzou can whack em - they now are a 2 loss team.  Then the fun begins:

  • The strength of the Big XII schedule puts us ahead of USC - most definitely.
  • Penn St LMAO.  No one wants a Big 10 Little11 team in Miami.
  • The Horns would then go to Miami to play the winner of the Florida/Alabama SEC championship.
  • An Auburn (unlikely but still a huge rivalry game) upset followed with a Bama SEC title sends the Horns vs. USC in a rematch.

I may be wrong - but that is the way I see it.
