Yeah, and when the Big 12 was formed, the criticism was that the North was so much stronger than the South. I think there may have been a few years when the Big 12 North was as weak as the BiG West is today, but it would be a close call.Iowa fans (myself included) loved to lampoon the Big 12 North. The B1G West this year is as bad as the North ever was. Nebraska was the 3rd best team in the Big 12. There isn't a West team this year that belongs anywhere near a NY 6 bowl. Not a single West team beat one of the top 3 East teams.
