Whenever there's a former Big 12 quarterback in the upcoming draft class, you'll always hear extensive cries about the conference's lack of desire to pretend to play defense. If you compliment a player's choice of shoes, the first response will likely be mocking Texas Tech's secondary.

That doesn't mean we should fully dismiss this assertion, though. After all, if we're going to evaluate these guys based on their statistics, the strength of their opponents should at least play a role in our process. You'd naturally expect an NFL-caliber quarterback to obliterate foes unworthy of sharing the same field, but what does he do against better teams?
