WE DID IT. 2012 BIG 12 CHAMPIONS.

Give us our trophy, Stoops. It's ours, not yours. - Jamie Squire

It looked grim, but finally the coaching staff remembered what got them here, and suddenly the afterburners kicked in. And Kansas State claims the 2012 Big 12 Championship and the Fiesta Bowl Bid.

At halftime, we were disconsolate. The game plan appeared to be just as non-sensical and pointless as the one which cost us a shot at the national title two weeks ago, and we were about to hang people in effigy.

But then someone finally remembered what got K-State to #1 in the first place. And Collin Klein finally started managing a running attack which opened the pass, rather than trying to pass to open the run. And the points, they suddenly started pouring in. The Wildcats outscored Texas 35-14 in the second half, and it would have been worse if not for a garbage-time score after the 'Cats were already up 42-17.

We're headed for Phoenix, and all is well. Hopefully, nearly five weeks to rest up will get us back to fighting trim. Hopefully, the coaching staff has learned their lesson from the Baylor game and the first half of this one.

Hopefully, we can finally capture that elusive BCS bowl win.

For now? CELEBRATE, PEOPLE. WE'RE BIG 12 CHAMPIONS.
