The Big XII is now just ten teams and that means they don't have the Big XII title game that we've grown accustomed to but we do get a pretty intense show down this weekend in Stillwater. Not quite the "national semifinal" we thought we'd see earlier in the season when both teams were undefeated. Not even the Oklahoma State "for the undefeated season" game we were expecting after the Sooners lost to Texas Tech. But, this is still a 3 vs 13 match up that will help decide the BCS Bowls picture and could, maybe, possibly, perhaps have some national title implications if things that "just" right.
To break it all down with us we've got Eddie Maisonet on the show. Ed is the co-founder and editor in chief of The Sports Fan Journal, he's an editor for SB Nation and a contributor to SLAM! Online. He's an OU guy and we finally get him on the show to chop it up about the Sooners, the Cowboys, Bob Stoops and the entire BCS picture going forward.
We hit on the game, starting off with a brief recap of the Sooners season, including discussing the many woes that afflict this 2011 Oklahoma squad. Ed and I also talk about the Cowboys and how good this Okie State team actually is this year. We hit on the pluses and minuses of each team, get intohow the game will play out and decide whether it is wise to just roll OU out as winners again based upon the fact that "that's what always happens."
As a bonus Ed stays on to talk about the BCS rematch business. We hit on Everett Withers job at North Carolina, talk Big XII's new make up and discuss the addition of Pitt and Syracuse to the ACC as we meander about the college realm to wrap up the show.
