    all of these things run in cycles.  i cannot believe that concept is so hard for people to grasp.  it wasn't that long ago that alabama was in the ditch and the toast of the nation was the big 12.  
     
    this henny penny hysteria needs to stop.

    I agree with bcherry.  All this hand wringing and gnashing of the teeth is crazy and somewhat childish.  The Big XII wasn't at it's best this season but it was much better last season...and the season before.  Most of the top QBs (as well as other skill positions)  in the nation played in the Big XII and most graduated at about the same time. Hence not as many to graduate and get drafted this year.  It takes a year or two for the  teams to rebuild and that will happen and the Big XII will be better.
     
    So many people on the boards complain that the Big XII schedule is boring because all we play is Baylor, Okie State, etc.  Even though many of the teams that we downplay and think of as boring have played some pretty good football the last few years and were on the national stage.  We're just bringing in our "old" biases because they weren't as good when we were growing up.  Then we state un-categorically that high school recruits would never want to play for Big XII teams because they're no good.  But you can't think that 17-18 years olds will bring in the same old biases as you...they weren't even alive back then.  What they really know is what happened the last 3-4 years, not 20 years ago.
     
    What I like about the Big XII is that year in and year out there will be some good, highly ranked teams (not just Texas and OU).  They may not always be the same teams but they will be there. But with a smaller number of teams it also frees us up to play a tougher OOC schedule.  That way we're not as tied down to play as many of the crap teams that just about every conference has.

    Let us look at it the way one should: how well does the Big 12 fare against other conferences on the field? In the polls? in the NC game? In the bowl games? In terms of fan entertainment?
     
    To base a diss the Big 12  story based upon one year of the NFL draft is absurd to me. What are we? Farm teams for the NFL? Or colleges fielding football teams for the sport and entertainment of the fans?
     
    Am I disappointed we had no players drafted? Of course. But I would point out that Alabama had none in 2008. Where was the bitching about Saban and his failure?
     
    While we should be concerned if the bad year becomes a trend, I think people are overreacting to this.
     
    As for the Big 12: we are fine right now, but of course it will ultimately have to change. The whole setup is going to change, and it needs to. But it will take a lot of time, and probably some legislation from Congress, to do it right. In the meantime, if we win the Big 12 and are undefeated, we have as good a chance at the national championship game as anyone. (except maybe a similar team from the SEC, which has a leg up for now). Might even do it with a loss.
     
    And the money keeps rolling in.

    Bear19 reacted to Randolph Duke in NFL DRAFT DAY 2014: "houston texans" on the clock...   
    I expect the Texas to trade down and to receive underwhelming compensation for doing so. They are not a team that is one key player away from turning the franchise around. The draft this year is deep, so lower first round draft picks are still attractive to other teams, meaning anyone willing to trade up isn't going to risk being left out of attractive draft picks if they don't move higher in the draft. Houston needs to get as much as they can in this draft and even a small amount of compensation is better than none. Maybe a draft and trade so the trade partner is assured they get one particular player,but I don't see Houston taking the number one pick for themselves unless they simply can't trade it away.
     
    My preferred scenario - Houston drafts Manziel and immediately trades him to Dallas for Romo, the Cowboy's first and fourth round picks and cash to offset Romo's contract. All hell would break loose.

    Please, Lord, I know I used a lot of favors with you while I was trying to get through finals in college, and there was the time the crazy chick who was incredible in bed thought she was pregnant, and that IRS audit and the field goal at the end of the Rose Bowl, and the one at the end of the aggy game and...well, we both understand I have asked for my share of favors. But please let Manziel go to Dallas.
