    '11-'12 Schedule - what do we know?

    Just curious how much we know about the schedule at this point.

    These 25 games are locked in, as far as I know:
    - South Padre Invitational (2 home games, 2 games in Padre)
    - vs. Iowa
    - vs. UNI
    - @ Drake
    - 9 Big 12 home games
    - 9 Big 12 away games

    So there's 6 more slots, I believe:
    - Creighton at Wells Fargo again?
    - Does Virginia play a return game? Or was this year's game the return for the awesome game in 2005?

    I assume there will be at least 6 home games against sacrificial lambs, so to speak. Two of these will likely be part of the South Padre deal. There were 9 such games on this year's schedule.

    There's really not too many games to play around with, once you add the 18 game schedule, the 3 Iowa games, and the 4 game Padre tournament.

    Are there any known games that I'm missing?

    Realistically, what games would you schedule if you were Jamie Pollard?

    Wouldn't the South Padre games be exempt and not count against the total?

    Add 1 non-conf road game for the Big12/Pac-10 challenge.

    Re: '11-'12 Schedule - what do we know?

    I would assume you have to throw in at least 2 other non-conference games against BCS schools... A weak non-conference schedule is not something you want to deal with if we come down on the bubble come tourney time. I know some may think I'm getting ahead of myself, but with all the hype and potential of the team you don't want to be coming on short on at least 'good competition' games.

    If I remember right this is done because of the conference realignment stuff.

    Oh alright.
    I wonder why, though? Before the realignment one conference had 12 teams, the other had 10. Now, its the same just flip-flopped.

    I can see how Colorado would be a point of contention.

    Re: '11-'12 Schedule - what do we know?

    Thanks for the link.
    I'd like to see a Big12/SEC challenge. There are a few teams in that conference that I would like to see in Hilton. (i.e. Kentucky, Tennessee, and Florida)

    So is that early 2012 (next season) or December 2012?

    Re: '11-'12 Schedule - what do we know?

    Of those six remaining games, I would love to see a couple of home and home series with against some respectable teams, preferably BCS type. It would also be nice if those were road games this year as to get that experience during the non-conference. It should help with our SOS and get that experience before we start the conference season. With the team we're hoping to have, I think that experience against tough competition is much more important than a gaudy record against cupcakes.

    Also having road games this year would get good teams to come to Hilton the following year when UNI and Iowa are away games.

    Re: '11-'12 Schedule - what do we know?

    It's going to be easy games. We will see a schedule similar to this year. Fred (and Bill) have been very up front about how teams aren't going to schedule tough teams because they have to play 19 conference games. Fred even said that most schools are re-thinking the idea of the tournaments b/c of the 18 conference games.

    We have enough tough games with Iowa, UNI, and Drake. We'll load up on cupcakes and maybe one home and away series with a big name school. But that's it. Get used to it.

    And I'm guessing we won't ever see Creighton again.
