One of the most unseemly aspects of conference championship playoff games in football is the appearance of unfairness in the location of the game. Why, if a team is more highly rated and in line for a giant BCS bowl payday, should they travel to a conference opponent’s backyard at the end of the season and put their whole year on the line one last time?
It’s a legitimate question, especially in the Big 12, which has seen no fewer than five teams enter the conference championship ranked in the top three, only to walk out with a loss. So naturally, they’re thinking about permanently relocating to Dallas. Of course.
