Big 12 morning links: Undefeated with an asterisk


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

The Big 12's 12-0 record last week made history as the conference's first perfect week. It just didn't get a lot of respect from columnists around the area.

San Antonio Express-News' Mike Finger says the conference remains an enigma after two weeks of the season. The Dallas Morning News' Kate Hariopoulos noted that even the Big Ten was perfect on Saturday. And the Kansas City Star's Blair Kerkhoff tempered the excitement by adding that only one victory in the Big 12's weekend sweep came against a foe from a BCS-affiliated conference.

No matter. It still goes down with no losses. And that's the most impressive statistic of all.  

The only thing better than a perfect week are a stack of Monday morning links.
