Do you know how to think..................

Yes, I think it would be easier for Arkansas to make the CFP out of the Big 12 than out of the SEC W.  What do you think?

Too*

And damn, being "tough" has really gotten us pretty far hasn't it? So many championships to show for it

You want in the little sand box fine. Go find someone there to play with (root for). At least my Alma Mater (something I wonder if you can say) had a pair and wanted in the big sand box.

Alabama | Clemson

#3 > #6

#4 > #8

#13 > #16

#14 > #21

#22 > #24

#24 > Unranked

Literally every team ranked at the end of the year that Alabama beat was ranked higher than every team Clemson beat.

Alabama opponent average rank: 13.33
Clemson opponent average rank:  15.00

Those averages are even skewed because Alabama beat 6 teams that finished ranked. Clemson beat 5.

Fair enough.  He made his point.

It's interesting that yesterday you were upset and complained I threw you in this pot with Huey and Lewie.  Now you're all stewing it it.

Yes, the U of A is my alma mater. I also hold a graduate degree from the #1 university in my field, and work at one of the largest and most respected consulting firms in the world.  Now that we've squashed your attempt at a pissing contest would you mind answering the following question:

Ya'll don't listen........I don't care if it is or isn't. I will this time answer. Yes. However I STILL prefer the SECw. Because to me it isn't always about what is "easy". IF everything in life was easy it would be boring.

Heck, I’ll play. No....as evidenced by the fact that this year’s National Champion
Didn’t even win the SEC West. Granted it was Bama, but a team pretty much has to win the Big 12 to get in. Not so in the SEC.

Why am I not surprised. I think it would be easier to GET to the CFP out of the little 12 because there are not as many really, really good teams to beat in that conference before you ever get there. The question was about getting to the CFP not winning the NC. Once you get to the CFP it is difficult no matter what conference you win or come out of. It's hard.

Yes, and the Big 12 won in 2006 (more recent than '98 in case you were confused.)

The original question was when was the last time the Big 12 won a championship.

As has been stated, the BCS is done.  You just have to make the playoff to get a shot.  I think it is easier to make the playoff in the Big 12 than it is coming out of the SEC West. I've yet to see an argument that supports the contrary.

For hating this topic you sure do keep responding.

A conference champion isn't guaranteed a spot in the CFP.... Unless they're from the SEC. Winning the Big 12 doesn't guarantee you a spot in the playoff. Show me one year in the last 15 years where, if we had the playoff during that stretch, the SEC wouldn't have gotten a team in.

Show me one year in the last 26 years where, if we had the playoff during that stretch, Arkansas would have gotten a team in. 

As has been said above a one loss P5 conference champ is a near lock for a playoff spot, and that is more easily attained for Arkansas in the Big 12 than the SEC.

If you will excuse me, I'll ask.........Do you always take the the interstate or do you take the scenic route. The freeways faster and easier BUT the scenic route is more fun.

If you will excuse me, I'll ask.........Do you always take the the interstate or do you take the scenic route. The freeways faster and easier BUT the scenic route is more fun.

I usually go through the woods plowing my own trail just to make things more exciting

Show me one year in the last 26 years where, if we had the playoff during that stretch, Arkansas would have gotten a team in. 

As has been said above a one loss P5 conference champ is a near lock for a playoff spot, and that is more easily attained for Arkansas in the Big 12 than the SEC.

Exactly.  And, if someday, the first two loss team makes the playoffs, it will come from the SEC.  Being in the SEC is our best shot of making it as a 1 loss team.  A one loss Big 12 team won’t get in ahead of a 1 loss SEC team.
