Especially since the BCS has included non conference winners before from the Big 12 and they got outclassed in the title game. If this Bama team had played SC or UGA I'd bet a ton of money on them winning those games as well.
What? OU vs OSU is for the Big 12. Soooooo they would have won their conference if they were to be put in the national championship game. No one is arguing for a 2 loss Oklahoma State team.

At least these "strength of schedule gurus" have a logical argument.

Also, Baylor only has 3 losses.

Alabama beat 2 top-20 teams and 7 top-40 teams. Their opponents have nearly identical winning percentages but the average ranking of Oklahoma State opponents is 37 compared to 53 for Alabama. Oklahoma State's resume is as good, if not better, than Alabama's. the difference is Alabama has already had their chance where Oklahoma State has not.

Okie Light blew their chance because they had already passed Bama in the BCS after Bama lost to LSU. Okie Light was #2 in the BCS... all they had to do was win their games.

Instead they went out and lost to an unranked team that was a 4 TD underdog. That's the very definition of "blowing it".

Their strength of schedule is irrelevant... it's a bunch of Big-12 teams who score a bunch of points on each other in boatraces because they can't play defense.

The 'tragedy' excuse for Okie Light losing to Iowa St. is the most pathetic thing I've ever heard. The 'tragedy' didn't seem to be affecting them when they were up 24-7 on Iowa St. in the 3rd quarter...
