Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread
Apparently the Big 12 thinks it's better than the SEC and doesn't think the SEC deserves to be considered the premier conference in college football.
It's a tortured argument on its face but basically Stoops and company bases their argument on a single year-last year-where the SEC was noticeably down due to several bad years by traditionally strong programs.
It's a silly argument no matter how one cuts it but claiming you're better because Iowa State almost beat Kansas State last season is kinda of ridiculous especially since the Big 12's top two teams got trounced in their bowl games and the signature post season win for the conference was the Alamo Bowl versus Oregon State. And lets face it, while beating Iowa State would actually be a signature win for Charlie Weis, his offensive genius didn't exactly strike fear in the hearts of SEC defenses.

BTW, Stoops' team-the creme of the Big 12- lost by 28 in their bowl game, against, yep, you guessed it, a team from the SEC.
