I didn't mind A&M leaving as I think TCU was a suitable replacement. But I sure hate to see Missouri leave as they had been a long time member of our conference. They were a member of the Big 7 before OSU jointed. And they were a worthy basketball opponent.
I think it is a good bowl game for OSU for several reasons. It is in Texas which will make it easy for team fans to attend the game.. We play a team we recruit against. A&M is overrated. Will be good for the Big 12 to have a team defeat one from the SEC, And the game is televised in a good...
I agree the CFP should be expanded to 8 teams. In that setup ALL the power 5 conference champs get invited with 3 at large teams. In that group (at large) only 1 team from a conference. This plan makes great sense, probably so much so that it will not be passed.
Disappointing season. I can't remember a team like this one that played up to, or down to, the level of competition. I expect the Pokes to easily win their bowl game and end the season on a positive note.
