PAC 10 plays the MWC b/c they are neighboring conferences. Also, the PAC 10 has to bring in name opponents b/c of lack of interest. LSU played Washington and the game wasn't even a sell out. Tennessee played at UCLA last year and was ranked. I was shocked to see entire sections empty at the stadium. Outside of USC and Oregon (small stadium) the rest of the teams fell to sell out the majority of games the entire season. Last year Oregon was the only team in the conference to sell out the entire season.
That's all fine information, but what does it have to do with the strength of the football teams or the conference?

I know that MWC is not BCS, but there isn't NEARLY as much difference in the talent and strength between BCS and non-BCS as there is between BCS and FCS teams. My point was that most of the wins don't mean much of anything simply because they came against FCS opponents...it doesn't say anything about how good any of the teams really are. It was not meant as a slight against you - I appreciate you posting the information. I just added my 2 cents.

The relationship between UH and all of its other campuses is about the same to the relationship between UT-Austin and UT-San Antonio. Both share the same name, but there's not many similarities.
That's not true. UT-Austin and UT-Dallas are about 3 hours apart. All U of H campuses are within 30/45 minutes of each other, with the exception of UH-Victoria, which is about 20 minutes SW of the Houston metro on the other side of Sugar Land/Missouri City. Also for total enrollment, UT-Austin just counts UT-Austin. For total enrollment, you always see U of H citing the 35,000 number which is all 4 campuses combined.

You said It looks like the MWC and Pac10 have played the most competitive schedules so far.

I told you why the Pac 10 has played top teams. Go back and read the posts if your still having trouble.

Having trouble with what? YOU'RE the one posting worthless information. I already said thanks...I guess that wasn't what you wanted to hear.

He claims to have a Ph.D. from TCU. No wonder.

SRG, I never said I had a Ph.D. I said I went to graduate school so I have a master's degree. What kind of degree do you have?

SRG, leave the football thread alone. Shouldn't you be hyping up the new burger king coming to Oklahoma City.

If you mean the $777 million MAPS3 initiative, or Devon Tower, or other downtown development, well it can take a break for some football. Not that that's even close to what is being discussed in this thread though..

I guess Florida State is pretty much legit...dropping 54 on #7 BYU.

Virginia Tech played poorly IMO, but in the end the Hokies scored enough for the W over #19 Nebraska.

It might've made the pac-10 look bad overall, but I'm glad the Huskies beat USC. I do happen to think that the huskies are pretty underrated. I don't see anyone in the Pac-10 beating the huskies except maybe California.

Glad they can notch a W at home over a Nebraska program coming out of hard times.

How long are Big12 fans gonna label Nebraska "coming out of hard times"? They've been coming out for years now...are they not out yet?

The fact is, they are supposedly a ranked team and they got beaten by a higher ranked team. No excuses, please...

UH climbs to no.17! Going to watch the Texas Tech-UH game, should be a showdown. I think coming out of the loss from UT will make them even harder to beat.

Man, the thread almost took a turn toward an actual football discussion. The "I know you are but what am I" dude returns!

If I were you, I would try to come up with some original insults before posting anymore copied ones crafted from prior posted material. I've noticed that this is an unattractive pattern for you.
