    All I know is that Utah avoided Stanford and Oregon their first two years, and still only has Stanford on the schedule. Yet, they have been unable to take advantage of getting that scheduling gift.

    It's complicated to say the least. IIRC, when they were putting together the divisions, Cal and Stanford were holding out to play USC and UCLA every year. In order to pull that off, they had to work it out so that those two schools only played two of the remaining four teams in the South in any given year, with Stanford playing one pair, and Cal playing the other. Meanwhile, the four remaining South teams would have one game against Cal or Stanford, and a rotating list of three of the remaining four North teams. In essence, CU will never play both Cal and Stanford the same year, but will always have one or the other on the schedule.

    Oregon will probably be placed on probation right after we play (and lose to) them for the 6th time, then we'll miss playing them (and requisite payback) during their entire meltdown regime. Reminds me of the Big 12 when we couldn't avoid Texas or Oklahoma when they were NC contenders, but avoided playing them when they were beatable.

    You do realize that we never played both OU and UT the same year, right? The rotation was UT/A&M/OSU followed by OU/****bailer/Tech.

    I think we play each of the Northwest teams six times over eight years and Cal/Stanford four times each over eight years. I don't recall where I saw it, but there was a big spreadsheet for the first eight year rotation. I think they only set the first eight years, and it's not guaranteed they'll keep the exact same rotation the next time (or they realized that it wasn't worth it because chances are good the conference will look different by then).

    Of course. That's what the "or" was for. My point was that we never seemed to catch either in a rebuilding year (i.e we got Texas when Vince Young was a junior and senior, same with Colt McCoy, Jason White, etc. We didn't get to play the Rhett Bomar Sooners).

    We will play Oregon State the next five seasons and will miss WSU next season as well but starting in 2015, we will go six straight.

    I think this means UW comes off the schedule for two seasons in 15/16 then after that, UO comes off the schedule.
