Setting: San Diego, California
Outcome: A noffense oriented BIG12 south team guns to an early lead, only to be flat out pistol whipped by an "ok" Oregon team. Oklahoma State plays its injured players (Bryant, Robinson, Hunter) and (not surprisingly) shows no inkling of defense. I suppose the Cowboy players were saying "Sorry, didn't mean to touch you" as the Ducks raced by them over and over. FAIL!
Setting: Dallas, Texas
Outcome: Another offense oriented BIG12 south team guns to an early lead, only to be embarrassed and out-physicalled. Harrell was chucking ducks over a hobbled Crabtree's head all game long. Meanwhile an "improved" Red-Raider defense got bullied around. Jevan Snead became Eli Manning and that Darren McFadden wannabe became a superstar tailback. FAIL!
Setting: Glendale Arizona!!!
Are we next?
Muschamp you better stop this trend. Remind all the players they have to be ready!
But seriously here, big let down. The BIG 12 North is 3-0 in bowl games against some suspect compettion and now some of our conferences flagship teams in the south (0-2 btw) have been pantsed. Queue Mark May, Lou Holthss, etc "Oh my god told you so BIG 12 defense sucks Big 12 overrated, SEC!"
Sorry at this point there's no way to counter the argument about the big 12 defenses. The only thing to hold on to is that OSU and TTU dont have TEXAS/OU level talent on defense. Year in and year out there is a ceiling on these teams ability on D. If Texas and OU have similar trouble there's gonna be backlash on a BIG 10 scale.
Still I hope OU loses.
