BIG 12 SOUTH EXPOSED IN FIRST TWO BOWL GAMES

Oregon plays in the Pac-10 - an overrated conference.
Ole Miss is the Iowa State of the SEC - not very good.
At least that was the belief before those two teams took on two of the powerhouses of the best division in college football, the Big 12 South.
Oregon - 42, Oklahoma State - 31.
Ole Miss - 47, Texas Tech 34.
The Big 12 South is in big trouble halfway through its bowl season. The Pac-10 and SEC made OSU and Tech look pedestrian and average.
It's up to Texas and Oklahoma to salvage any positive perception the South created this year. Naysayers said that the division was just really good offenses and bad defenses.
After the Holiday and Cotton Bowls, it looks like they were 50% right. The division must have bad defenses and not very good offenses.
Let's hope the division's top two teams can right the ship before the national media turns the division into a laughing stock.
