This is obviously something everybody was aware of before today, including myself, but i guess i never realized the level of their dominance until today. I saw a stat on ESPN that said since the big 12 was formed in 1996, KU has won the big 12 regular season title 10 times (7 times outright, and 3 times they shared it), won the big 12 tournament championship 7 times, and during 6 different seasons they won both the regular season and tournament championship (apparently this has only been done 12 times since 1996 by "BCS" conference teams, so that means KU is responsible for half of those). I hate KU basketball just as much as the next person, but i just had to take note of these stats. This is unbelievable to me. So i had to ask myself the question....Since 1996, what other collegiate feats are comparable to this as far as dominating a conference. The only one i can think of is USC's football dominance in the pac 10, so if theres one that im forgetting about please let me know. I havent followed Texas baseball for very long, and without doing the research that could very well be another one, but other than that i can't think of one. Texas has a legitimate rival in OU for winning the big 12 every year in football, but these stats would indicate KU has absolutely no rival like that in basketball.
