Tuesday's Did You Know - Lucky #7

Sharing is caring!
Did you know that the Big XII has as many teams ranked in the first BCS poll as the vaunted SEC does? Seven of the ten team conference are in the top 25. Yes, teams from the SEC hold the top two spots for the second year in a row, which is damn impressive, but 70% of our league is represented. Seven out of fourteen is only 50%.

I know this is a repetitive theme for the Tuesday "Did You Know," but I like pointing out how strong the Big XII is top to bottom.

The reality of the situation, however, is that this can not last. Not because the teams are not good enough to win, but because in a round robin format conference cannibalism will eliminate at least two of these teams from the top 25. Which is sad because we have at least seven teams in our conference who could win the B1G this year.
