    My dad unintentionally made a good point last night, asking why the Big 12 is in San An. I explained 6 teams are in TX/OK.

    I then thought about it, and realized all 6 are in the South. How did they pick San An? Does the North ever complain that it is not a neutral site?

    They try to alternate it between North and South, even though there have been years that is has been back to back in the North (04-05) and South (02-03):

    1996-97 St. Louis
    1997-98 San Antonio
    1998-99 St. Louis
    1999-00 San Antonio
    2000-01 Kansas City
    2001-02 Irving
    2002-03 Houston
    2003-04 Kansas City
    2004-05 Kansas City
    2005-06 Houston
    2006-07 Kansas City
    2007-08 San Antonio

    Next year's is in Kansas City I do believe. Both Mizzu and Kansas should still be very good as they are both fairly young and have returning Heisman canidates at QB. The South powers will still be strong.
