    The first ad on this video is about a router that cleans pornography from your computer. I'm glad they chose to call it Pandora's Hope, and not Pandora's Box.
    So Russell...what do you love about music? To begin with, everything.

    Just as it was perceived to be Ohio State’s or Michigan State’s responsibility to carry the Big Ten banner on the national stage, the Big 12 may now be in need of Oklahoma (or Baylor) running the table. Oklahoma losing in Morgantown may end up doing more damage than good for the sake of the Big 12 when it comes time for the College Football Playoff selection committee to do their job.
    As stated already, the Big 12 has breathing room ahead of the Big Ten for now, but losses inside the conference could start to do more damage than they would have if the Big 12 could record some wins against power conferences not named the Big Ten.

    Really? I would think that every single BYU fan would hope that a lack of a championship game would keep the Big 12 out.

    that is one scenario. another scenario is that the b12 gets a slot and the SEC gets only one of the remaining three, despite having 8 teams in the top 25 and 5 of the top 10 teams. Nothing moves mountains faster than the SEC getting pissed off. Not even the Texas legislature!

    But OU didn't lose to WVU in Morgantown. Season is still early and it's possible for both OU and Baylor to lose.

    The Big 12 has shown that it can only learn the hard way. I hope both OU and Baylor lose a game. And Nebraska pulls ahead of OU after they win the Big Ten CCG leaving the Big 12 out of the playoffs. The Big 12 finally has an epiphany and adds BYU and another team to the conference so that they won't be duped by the Big Ten in the future.

    Plan B: Alabama and Texas A&M both make the playoffs with one loss each at the expense of one-loss OU. Texas A&M gets in because of a good showing in the SEC CCG. The Big 12 finally has an epiphany and adds BYU and another team to the conference so that they won't be duped by the SEC in the future. I'd substitute Baylor for OU but the Big 12 won't care all that much if it's Baylor getting the short-end of the play-off stick.
