Re: 2008 Mock Draft
Meh, people get too worked up over putting labels on conferences when things change quickly. It was pretty boring this year, but it was a very fun league to watch in '05 and '06, and was the best league in the nation from '99 to '01.
The Big XII was, in my opinion, the most fun league to watch this season, but that's coming off a few subpar seasons. But before that, it was probably the best or second-best league in the country in '02 and '03.
It's no different in football, where the Big Ten has the "three yards and a cloud of dust" rep, but for awhile now it's been producing more passing yards than anyone but the Pac-10 and as many big-time WRs as any conference in the country.
