I never said tradition wise they weren't I said they had a nice setup where they can cram as many of the good teams into the top 25 as possible because they don't face everyone else and that there is a glass ceiling in the Big 12 because they do play everyone. You get 6 teams at 6-2 and better almost every year and one of my biggest complaints about the Big 12. The Big 12 has only been around since the 90s. If you wanted to include the SWC/Big 8 history with schools no longer there (Nebraska, Colorado, SMU, Arkansas, etc) you might be able to make an interesting discussion.
But in its current form its Texas, Oklahoma, with KState and OK State nipping at the heels the last few years. What happens to KState when Snyder retires? Texas and Oklahoma cannot compare with what Alabama has done recently and what Florida did with Spurrier and Meyer. Can WVU and TCU get back to where they were after both struggled in their first year as Big 12 members.
