Matt, Benton... or anyone... please break down the logic of how the Big 12 plans to decide the winner of this year's league title? Say, for example, Kansas wins out and finishes 13-5, or OU wins out and ends up 13-4. If Baylor loses one or two of their last games and is 10-2, or 11-1, or even wins out and ends up 12-0, who wins the league? The team with the most wins or the fewest losses? Why would teams be penalized for actually playing all their games, possibly up to 6 more than Baylor? And why would Baylor be granted the title having rested half the season? The only three teams in the league that Baylor will have managed to play twice (other than KU) are in the bottom four: OSU, ISU, and KSU. They will have only played most of the top teams in the league once (UT, WVU, OU, TT). Granted, they beat them all, but it’s still weird to get to rest your team a full third of the league season and not have a HUGE asterisk next to that title. KU & OU both already have an equal number of league WINS than Baylor has scheduled games left to be played.

Even if based on win/loss percentage, as you guys have sorted the list above, it is still incredibly unfair. KU would obviously have a much better win/loss percentage if we had just decided to skip our second games against OU and WVU, and opt out of our trip to UT next week in order to rest up and prep for the final game against Baylor at home.
