Texas head coach Mack Brown turned some heads at Big 12 Media Days when he said that his conference was more balanced than the SEC. He was right, but does it really matter?
College football fans may groan when they hear a non-SEC coach try to one-up the nation's top conference, but Brown has a point.
The top of the SEC is the real star of the show, seemingly setting the difficulty to "Rookie" when it trounces the bottom half of the conference.
On the other hand, the Big 12 consistently showcases upward mobility and the ability of the Davids to knock off the Goliaths. This was especially evident last season, when seemingly every game had a suspense factor.
For those reasons, Brown has introduced and won the balance argument heading into 2013. But that doesn't exactly give the Big 12 the last seven national championships.
