    Are we speculating what games we'll get? I figure we'll get one each of our Texas and KU games. Pleasantly surprised at anything beyond that.

    I am guessing we get 3 Big Monday games. KU and UT will have 4/5 each.

    Who would be the third match-up? Oklahoma? Or do you think the double up on one of KU and UT?

    There is enough ESPN hype for CFH and ISU MBB that I think we get 4 this year, 2 home and 2 away.

    Whatever the max amount of games per team I'd bet the Cyclones/Jayhawks get. The style ISU plays along with the success they've had and The Mayor's dreaminess is exactly what ESPN loves for a story line.

    4 would be half of the Big Monday games. That seems like a stretch.

    I don't know, but thanks for getting me all excited thinking that it WAS out. Jerk.

    I think 4 Big Monday's is too much as well. I figured we would get 3. KU@ISU, UT@ISU, and ISU@UT. ISU@KU gets the XII College Gameday visit..

    It would be wise of ESPN to push this rivalry because ISU and KU are easily the 2 most passionate basketball fan bases in the XII.

    I bet KU and UT both get the max and we are next in line. OU will be in the mix as well. I think those four teams will get the bulk of the games; no other school should get more than one.

    That would be sweet. I would just hope that game can make it on a bigger stage than ESPNU like it has the last 2-3 years.

    Kansas and OSU had 4 last year. KU seems like a lock for 4 each year. I could see ISU and Texas getting 3 each, and OU, KSU and BU splitting the remaining 6.

    3 max for us is what I am thinking. Wouldn't be shocked if we still have 2 again.

    I think ISU will get 3, both KU games will be ESPN games big Monday or otherwise. These 2 schools have given them such great games lately. I think both KU games are locks for a primetime slot.

    I'm sure we'll get KU, UT for two of them, and my guess is OU or KSU for the other.

    We will see. I thought this last year and it didn't happen.

    Last year the College Gameday schedule came out on August 14th so we should know both this and the Big Monday in the next two weeks or so.
