    LOL! Of course, a former big east team now in the "big 12."

    When did the Mountaineers lose their defense? Who told them they could compete with the "arguably" best conference in CFB? I'm stunned.

    Of course the SEC has shaken up the standings again. Florida sacked LSU, and the Chickens from S. Carolina spanked the Dawgs.. Rooster Crow anyone?

    Oh, and I forgot to say, poor pitiful Mizzou. Weren't they better over "there?" They lost to Eh HEM... VANDERBILT

    Hook 'em Horns is all I got to say

    Yeah, let's look at that Smooks. The #8 team in the country beat the #11 team in the
    country 48-45.

    They are both BIG 12 teams too.

    Take a look in the rankings and you will find several BIG 12 teams in the top 25

    Indeed Hook'em Horns.

    I thought for sure Texas would beat the Mountaineers.. not to long ago they were known as a basketball school.

    They've obviously "fit the mold" with that conference. All play action, NO D.

    Seriously though, I think K State is the forerunner. I've watched a couple games of theirs, namely Miami game and Oklahoma.

    They look awesome.

    WV has been a football school for several years now.

    Their record against ranked teams is number 1 or 2 I believe I read over the last 4 seasons.

    I am not sure if WV and Texas' defenses are that bad, or if their offenses are that good.

    Either way, UT has to re-group because we have OU this week and Baylor next week.

    If I was from A and M I would have made it t.u.? I am more of the Fayetteville persuasion.

    If UT can get by 1 or both of them, the real test is in K-State.. "Calvin" Klein does it all. I've seen them play twice and they're very impressive!

    We have to get by OU, Baylor, Texas Tech and TCU (although they should be easier
    now that Paschal has left school) BEFORE they can worry about K-State!!

    I do believe the Big 12 (10 teams, right?) is probably the 2nd best conference this year.

    You know as well as most that the UT machine has a large fan-base. Their conference may not be collapsing as quickly as "some" of the media have reported.

    We actually upgraded. We traded a&m and Mizzou and got West Virginia and TCU.

    A&M seem like b*tches to me, they couldn't get past the UT shadow. They have always been a good team. Boo hoo. I"m not sure moving to a tougher conference will set them right.

    For now, West "by God" Virginia and TCU are very good.. let's see how long that lasts..

    I think in the long haul, a&m will regret their move, but then, no one ever accused
    them of being smart!!
