The Big 12 went 5-3 in their bowl games. Yeah, we're having a "down" year.
Texas Tech, Iowa State, and Colorado lost their bowl games, and really, Colorado can't count. No quarterback and no coach? They gave Clemson a good game anyway. Texas Tech actually impressed quite a few people by hanging with Alabama. Anyway, the point is that all the "Big 12 sucks" talk was overblown.
As always, it's still the Pac 10 that sucks.
Congratulations to all our rivals in the Big 12 on the strong bowl season.
