The Big 12 is the Biggest loser in the recent conference shuffle. It isn't even close.
Awesome, flagship schools of their respective states and charter members of the Big 12 took a hike. Something is rotten in that conference when one third of historical members want out. OUCH ! Each of the members that left were begged to stay in and reconsider. All kinds of concessions were promised but rejected by Nebraska, Colorado,Texas A&M, and Missouri . All had had their fill of the Texas two-step.
Suggesting that either TCU or wvu with a few BCS wins in any way shape or form comes close to replacing any of those schools is laughable.
I don't "look down" on the Big 12(-2) and I sure as heck don't put them on any pedestal. They have got a lot of internal fence-mending to do before they can beat their chest, IMHO.
