SEC plays four games a year with Big East
ACC/Big 10 is the Showcase for this type of setup
It is still possible to do the Pac 12/Big Texas challenge, with the Pac 12 now having the 2 teams that would not participate
Assistant coach Jean Prioleau has tweeted/twatted/twitted the following about our schedule for next year:
So here's hoping we avoid the horrible scheduling from last year and know some news soon. Of course, it appears that Prioleau has bigger things on his mind right now.Nothing new...schools want to play us but the dates do not work...scheduling is tough. I'm going to hit some golf balls work on the driver..
Seriously, though, we definitely need a solid RPI schedule. It doesn't look to me like the Pac-12 this year is going to deliver the overall RPI boost from the conference season that the Big 12 did... and even that wasn't enough to overcome an embarrassing non-con last year (as we all know too well :stillpissed:).
I realize we're going to get some bad teams in the Foam Dome, but let's make them just "crappy" teams instead of "holy crap these guys are a division 1 team?!?" teams like we had last year. I'd selfishly love to see one "big name" team at home too.
When does spring semester start. We might have five conference games with no kids
be interesting to see how the "travel partners" thing develops a rhythm with the "2 at home, 2 away....2 at home, 2 away" format dominating the league schedule. basically play for a split on the road, and sweep at home. sort of like baseball series homestands v. road trips or holding serves v. service breaks in tennis.
let's say the Buffs are in the top half of the league and lose to a highly ranked U of A team at home (never happen in real life)...and then the pressure is on to win the next homie against ASU before heading out on the road, say, to UCLA and then USC. that is absolutely a must win. on the other hand, win the first one on the 2 game road trip and play loose on the #2.
Team X is leading the conference by a game but plays the last two on the road.

I'm bumping in the hopes that someone -- anyone -- has heard anythign about the non-conference schedule for next year. If I remember correctly, they're going to start taking deposits on season tickets soon. It'd be nice if they had a non-conf schedule to announce at that time as well.
Nope, not yet. I was looking at the CU ESPN site and it said they're in the Big Ten Conference under "Colorado Buffaloes" at the top.
Nice job ESPN.
