RECOUNT NOT REMATCH!
I'm starting this here. Fans do NOT want a rematch of LSU and Alabama. OCCUPY THE INTERNET and demand a recount!
For years the BCS has kept teams out of the big games like Boise and others that play "little sisters of the poor". Well, now we have an Alabama team in the game with a schedule that is clearly inferior to Ok State. What gives?
The Big 12's middle tier has shifted. So, Texas Tech went 18 years without a losing season and played in 11 consecutive bowls. Baylor went 16 years without playing in a bowl game. Now, Texas Tech will be sitting at home for the holidays and Baylor is going to it second consecutive bowl game and has a chance to win 10 games.
Sources tell Orangebloods.com Texas Tech will be the Texas #Longhorns' Thanksgiving opponent in 2012, replacing Texas A&M. #hookem #TTech

West Virginia has accepted an offer to join the Big 12 Conference, college football industry sources told CBSSports.com Friday.
The Mountaineers informed the Big East Friday morning that they were leaving the league. The Big 12 is expected to officially announce the invitation later today.
The Big 12's board of directors voted Friday morning and chose West Virginia over Louisville. The Big 12 will stay at 10 schools, a source said.
How close was the Big 12 to announcing West Virginia as its newest member?
As of Tuesday, Big 12 officials, including interim commissioner Chuck Neinas and deputy commissioner Tim Weiser, planned to be in Morgantown, W.Va. today to announce West Virginia was headed to the Big 12.
The Big 12 had told West Virginia officials the Mountaineers were the choice to replace Missouri and the Big 12 even had a press release prepared.
But before the Big 12 could make it official, the league’s board of directors wanted to perform due diligence and decided to hold off on officially inviting West Virginia.
The reason was simple: the Big 12 had always been deciding between West Virginia, Louisville or BYU as a replacement for Missouri, when it leaves for the SEC. Now the league is split between West Virginia and Louisville, multiple sources have said.
Don't get me wrong, the Michigan State-Wisconsin game was amazing. I stayed up until 3 a.m. watching the replay after I covered Game 3 of the World Series.
But unranked Texas Tech's 41-38 victory against then-top-ranked Oklahoma at Norman -- breaking the Sooners' 39-game home win streak -- was better. And much, much more meaningful.
12: Receivers who caught a pass from Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege in the Red Raiders' shocking 41-38 win over Oklahoma. He completed 33 of 52 passes for 441 yards and four touchdowns, and his diversity kept a banged-up Oklahoma defense on its heels all game. Of course, he wasn't alone in spreading the ball around. Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden found nine receivers (four with at least five receptions) in the 'Pokes' win over Missouri; UCF's Jeff Godfrey and Blake Bortles found nine receivers in just 19 completions in the Knights' loss to UAB; Boise State's Kellen Moore found 11 receivers and threw just six incompletions in a win over Air Force; Southern Miss' Austin Davis completed 27 passes to nine receivers in a 27-3 win over SMU; and perhaps most impressively of all, East Carolina's Dominique Davis completed 40 of 45 passes, to nine receivers, in the Pirates' 38-35 win over Navy. In comparison, Case Keenum's 24-for-28 performance against Marshall, which included just seven different receivers, seems lacking. Come on, Case.
Unidentified vandals sprayed graffiti in various location on campus Friday night, said UT Police Department Sgt. Samuel Ferguson.
Using red spray paint, the perpetrator sprayed what reads as "MUNgLoaf Was here" on a north-side wall of the Weaver Power Plant Annex and "GiG em Aggies" along a bridge connecting the Winship Drama Building to San Jacinto Boulevard. In addition, crosshairs were sprayed on an east-side wall of the Winship Building, and a phallic depiction was painted next to Donald Lipski’s East Mall monument, "The West."
