I guess both take their cues from their conference leadership. 

Pac 12 refs try to hide their cheating with their ineptitude. 
SEC refs just don't care if you notice.  They basically dare you to do anything about it.

Yep.(I'm assuming you mean Kansas of about a decade ago) If so Kansas looks better. If you are referring to having a good team every ten years, maybe yes again. The Jayhawks haven't had a bowl eligible team since 2008 though. Kentucky has had 5 and is looking at #6.

 Just waiting to see who they get in their bowl game now. They'll probably finish 9-3 which I doubt anyone was predicting at the beginning of the year. So nice season for them if they can pull off the bowl win.

Well, it was a costly loss for the Wildcats.
A week ago they were playing for a berth in the SEC Title game which went instead to Georgia.
Losing to Tennessee yesterday cost them the Fiesta Bowl though they could still play on New Year’s Day against Penn State in the Citrus Bowl.

No specific complaints about last night's calls in our game.  But on the way to the game, we heard national announcers making fun of Pac12 officiating...so it has reached that point

ESPN Stats and Info says Northwestern is the first team in FBS history ( since 1992)to reach a conference championship game despite going winless in nonconference play.
The WildCats  lost to Akron, Duke, and Notre Dame. but they’ve

But the have won 10 consecutive division games and 13 of their past 14 Big Ten games.

Is it just MNF and college hoops on Veterans Day.  No disrespect to the troops but there should be more sports today.

They played a full slate of NFL and NBA games on Veterans Day, which by law is always 11/11. Today is just a makeup day off.

Don't mire the issue in bureaucratic subterfuge man!!

Can't you see all the people there, yearning, longing for nothing more than what, man, can you see through the haze of your illusions for once??

Sport!!

For the love of SPORT!!

Are such things not dreamt of in your philosophy, laws, laws, he says, sure...

If defense wins championships how much should the  CFP Committee ding Oklahoma for not having much of one?

Funny you would ask that when you(and others) loudly decried the LSU/Bama defensive battle of a while back.

But now that there is a team from the Big 10 playing stellar defense who is in the mix...

Does West Virginia hop over Oklahoma in the Football Four Poll tonight?

Hard to say, but I would have them ahead of the Sooners.

The Big Ten always has teams in the top in defense. Oklahoma, this is ranked 83rd.
