The Bonghorns were trumpeting the fact that BigBevo had the most number of bowl eligible teams and that showed the conference's strength. Apparently, even with 9 teams playing in bowl games they couldn't muster up enough wins to level up with the SEC! SEC! SEC!
Damnit Florida! What tha fug!?
Bro, it's tha deepest conference in da nashun! There's only so many 7-5 teams because they all beat eachother!
“Honestly [tu's offer] doesn’t really matter though because I won’t go there. I won’t even visit." “I want to play big time ball in the SEC"
Was there ever a moment where anyone expected the Big-WTF to be better-than-mediocre in its bowl record?!?
well, I don't think very many people expect KSU and OU to face gag like cheap whores... then again, they never gave bjs to fast offenses quite like those of Oregon and A&M...
Dallas Morning News and others equivocated and pointed to reasons why OU could/would win the Cotton Bowl.
Which makes this spanking even more enjoyable, even two days later. :D
Funny, I count 9 sec teams as well, must've been longhorn math
Your logic is boggling my mind
Bonghorn math makes some sense if you don't consider the lower tier bowls and that many of the BigBevo teams were underdogs in their bowls.
9 out of 10 BigBevo teams in bowls = 90% bowl eligible/bowl bound teams.
9 out of 14 SEC teams = only 64% bowl eligible/bowl bound teams.
Nevermind that most of SEC bowl games were top tier, NYE/new years day or high paying, high profile bowls.
Even so, it is an accomplishment for the BigBevo, financially. Their 9 bowl game payout is around $35 million and depending on how they share that payout (it's not equally shared, I don't think) among 10 teams, they still made out very well, financially.
SEC, with 14 teams, even with 9 bowls mainly having higher payouts, the average per team (SEC shares its bowl winnings equally, yes?) will be a few hundred thousand dollars less than a BigBevo team.
I'm not sure how often BigBevo will get 9 teams into bowl games, however.
B-WTF should be REALLY worried that its 1-BCS Bowl bid becomes the 'new normal'. K-State and Oklahoma were both bent down in their games. Hardly inspirational for future conference at-large bids.
