Wendell Barnhouse is a nationally-known and respected columnist who has spent over 20 years covering collegiate athletics. He has reported from 24 Final Fours and more than three dozen bowl games and has written about the Big 12 and its schools since the conference's beginning. Barnhouse will be updating the Big 12 Insider on happenings and behind-the-scenes information about the conference.

In his regular 3-Point Stance feature, ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel talked with Big 12 Conference acticing commissioner Chuck Neinas about the recent Bowl Championship Series meetings:

Big 12 interim commissioner Chuck Neinas remains impressed with the tenor of the meeting in South Florida last week about the postseason. "Those were as intense, focused and serious meetings as I've ever been a part of," Neinas said, "with a healthy respect for those who disagreed."

Neinas wants the BCS to increase emphasis on schedule strength and continue to ignore margin of victory. "Oregon winning by four touchdowns may be the same as Wisconsin or Nebraska winning by two," Neinas said. "We shouldn't take style of play into account."
