Yes. I root against every conference rival in every game they play in or out of conference because I don't like those teams. If A&M was playing USC, I'd root for USC and I don't like them either. Any team that matters that year is a rival and I want to see them get beat, if they suck I don't care if they win or lose. I'm not cheering for Iowa St regardless of the opponent, I wouldn't even check the box score.
Everyone else I know feels the same way, it's only the PAC and SEC guys that seem to do this. I don't care about about rankings. If Texas wins they'll be ranked appropriately. USC had no problem with rankings for a decade in a s**tty conference.
And look at recent history as far as BB: Texas, A&M, OU, Baylor, and Mizzou have all been good teams, it's far more than just Kansas that's half the conference with good teams. In fact we just shipped the 2 crappiest teams out, it's a very good BB conference. You don't seem to know much about the Big12 if you think Kansas is all it has. You "guessed" final 4s was a good gauge, doesn't mean it is. It measures 1 good team, not a conference. Memphis made a bunch of good runs, how good was their conference?

I can't help it if you don't understand that OOC wins for a Conference reflect on the Conference's pretige

So based on your reasoning, you want to be in the s**ttiest conference possible? lol

And you don't care about rankings? So you have NEVER thought Texas should be ranked higher ever in the history fo college football? And I'm sure you're going to tell me, everyone you know thinks like this too.

The vast majority of fans want their Conference to have prestige, which means their team win their OOC games. The vast majority of fans care about rankings. The vast majority of fans understand rankings matter as far as BCS bowl invites go.

You just can't speak with a an arrogant belittling tone can you? If someone doesn't agree with you it must be because they don't understand something eh? Whatever makes you feel better bro. There's a difference between wanting a good conference and openly rooting for rival schools. For historically lousy schools, like the majority of the PAC, I can see why you'd want to pump up everyone to be noticed, Texas doesn't have that problem: win the games and we're in. Either way, this is gone about where I expected, you can have your opinion and I'll keep mine.
LOL. PAC-x fans crack me up.

2nd stop of the revenge tour in Iowa. I want to see a bloodletting, but it will probably be a close game. Still not a fan of the rotating QBs, but excited to see Malcolm Brown (hopefully) starting and getting the bulk of the carries.
We better beat these fools...
aww f**k


Just turned the game on.

Gotta enjoy this victory b/c next week I'm praying for some miracles lol

Just the asswhipping I wanted. Score misleading though, not good in the red zone, running game suspect against a lousy team. The TOs won the game, you can't count on those every week. I really, really don't like alternating QBs. Have one dominant and one change of pace, like FLA worked Tebow in, but every other series just won't work over a season. It's obvious they want Ash to be the guy but just don't trust a true freshman to run the team. Real curious to see how this plays out against OU.
I'm scurred.
TCU set to joing the Big XII.

Good addition and nice to see a Texas school join the conference to replace A&M.

RED RIVER RIVALRY!!!!!!
It's here, the biggest game of the year. Personally I don't think either team is quite as good as their ranking but all that means nothing in this game. If the game goes in the 30s Texas is done, need it to be low scoring like the last few. TOs will be the difference and I think Texas inexperience will factor in, this is one of the youngest teams in all of football. I really hope a QB gets hot and they stick with him, this rotating is going to cause a disaster at some point. For that, I'm picking OU 33-20.
