First I am sorry about your loss Saturday. The way you moved the ball in the first half I really thought you guys would win that one.
However I noticed that A&M is claiming the 2010 Big 12 title. I saw Oklahoma beat the Huskers and don't seem to recall A&M playing in that game. I know that Bama has a history of claiming any title in which they were in the discussion. The whorns tried a similiar thing a few years ago but they realized how inane it made them look. Can anyone explain why the new claim?
Conference champion, what's the question here
Most of us dont agree with it, but damn near every school does the same thing.. Tech, Texas, among others. Its intention is too be eye candy for the fans and recruits. A&M went for many years without claiming national championships that EVERY school would have. Having said that the 2010 doesn't sit well with me. However you do realize A&M beat both teams that played in the conference championship, and had the same conference record as both the teams? OU got a shoe in, because of history. You started out in the top 5 as you do most years, and that helped you stay high enough to beat out us out for the right to play in said conference championship..
The arguement can be made for either side, and I can agree with both sides. Its just one of those things you'll have to live with, because I seriously doubt our administration is going to take it down at this point.

I wish we'd claim every national title we could legitimately make a case for. We should have been doing that for decades now. But, claiming the '97 and '10 division titles (or "co"-titles) under the heading of "Conference Championships" is really stupid and embarrassing. We need to take that crap down. You can't even consider it as stretching or bending the truth a little bit, it's just a flat out lie and it makes us look ridiculous.
I saw a picture of a big 12 program from 2011 that listed us having 3 "conference championships". That was the big 12 saying it not us. They give it to everyone who wins or ties for their division. We just hadn't claimed it previously. Every team except Baylor was listed as having at least 1 conference championship.
Do you recall us whippin your ass along with the huskers that same year? I don't remember us losing those games.
Win we shall, yes we can, yes we will.
I'm sure this guy is really sorry about our loss. Would all former conference members just please stay off the site. We no longer have any association with you.
First off, I think you probably understand that none of us on this message board went and hung the sign.... It is what it is. We didnt play in the championship game so, no, we werent the champions.
Having said that, I'm not going to make any apologies because other programs do the same and we did beat BOTH teams that played in the championship game....we actually beat you guys by 14 points despite being ranked significantly lower going in to the game. Regardless of how you feel about it, the fact is that you're pre-game ranking (#8 I believe) vs ours was the tiebreaker that got you guys in to the game even though we beat you soundly on the field itself.
I remember seeing us beat your ass that year and have the same record, so, I think we have a claim to the title.
You are correct. The majority of us agree and think this makes A&M look insecure and silly.
Fact of the matter is, to be the conference champs you have to represent your division in the championship game and then obviously win the contest. We did neither.
Open and shut case aggies.
Co-divisional champs would be more accurate.
Now that was a silly statement since you don't know me. Just for the record my brother-in-law is an A&M grad & I've sat many times in your stadium and pulled for the Aggies to win. Any time they play and are not playing my Sooners I pull for your team. So I was sorry about your teams loss.
As for ebo54 you sound a lot like a whorn the year they beat us & we won the Big 12 title.
Do you know which ones, if any, Tech claims? I'm not trying to call you out. I'm just interested because I know live in Lubbock and hear a lot of shit talking about us adding titles. Which for the record, I think was stupid. The 1929 championship I am okay with I guess because I heard we were retroactively awarded it.
