Is the big 12 winless in bowls right now? I told everyone they would get exposed in bowl games.
Big12 seems to always be over-rated in both major revenue sports, but Baylor did beat UNC. Nevertheless, you'll only hear the blowouts of Iowa and MSU referenced.
Those certainly do tarnish the conference. But, how different would it have been had Michigan been able to punt? OSU would have burried Iowa and probably gone on to play Clemson. Michigan would have put up a better fight against Stanford. Michigan State and Iowa would have then played Notre Dame and Florida.
Perhaps other conferences can point to similar circumstances.
