Big 12 Roundtable - Week 8
If you could steal another coach at any level (head, assistant, etc.) from another school, who would it be and why?
Bob Stoops - He's getting it done in the Big 12 year-in and year-out. I think a guy like Pete Carroll might struggle without the wealth of talent that LA guarantees, but Stoops engineered a nice turnaround at OU which is what Nebraska needs too. The added plus is he'd no longer be at OU.
What two teams will play for the Big XII Championship and why?
Oklahoma in the South and Kansas in the North. I can't believe I said "Kansas" but at this point there's only Missouri in the way.
What is the best bowl game your team has a realistic shot at and, if your team has a shot, who would you like to play in said bowl?
Independence Bowl? Whatever the weakest bowl is, that would be Nebraska's destination. The opponent probably wouldn't matter because they'd suck too.
If given the opportunity, would you keep the Big XII status quo or kick out a team and go to a Big 10-style conference play?
You could drop Baylor and not notice. You could probably drop Iowa State too. Drop them both and it could be like the PAC 10 where every team plays everybody and you don't need a conference championship game.
