    Big 12 Non Conference Season

    Big 12 Conference Nearing $60 Million Per Year TV Deal With FOX - SB Nation Kansas City

    If they went through with the channel, there'd be a few things that would have to be figured out. First, the conference schedule may have to be tweaked to spread non-conference games throughout the entire season

    Re: Big 12 Non Conference Season

    i dont like when teams do this, but could it be a good thing? would getting the iowa game pushed back in the season add a little more incentive to the game?

    It may get more exposure as a 8th or 9th game. It would be done for money.

    I never underswtood this lining of reasoning. Why does it matter when teams play non conference games? If you play a non conference game later in the season, it means that you played a tough conference game earlier than everyone else. In my mind, it doesn't matter when you play games, as long as everyone plays the same amount.

    Re: Big 12 Non Conference Season

    I just don't like it because I'm used to the non conf always being before the conference games, just a personal opinion

    I don't know, it wouldn't be all bad to get a "breather" in the middle of the season rather than the gauntlet that ISU has to run through most October and Novembers. I would guess that the noncon games that would be moved would be for low level 1A teams and 1AA teams like UNI. BCS teams wouldn't move the game due to their conference schedule.

    Re: Big 12 Non Conference Season

    The SEC manages to schedule the biggest cupcakes in early-mid November.

    Which just so happens to be during the time of the year when injuries and fatigue are most prevalent in college football. Crafty on their part to use the 10th or 11th week of the season as a bye.

    Re: Big 12 Non Conference Season

    The Big 12 will most likely adopt the SEC method with conference games starting the second week of the season. And with the Big 10 going to 9 conference games in a few years, we may see Iowa as the first game of the season. There is a precedent for having Iowa as the first game of the year though (it happened in the 70's and 80's).

    The Big 12 will move the season back to championship Saturday as well. Both of these moves will help provide exposure to more marquee games and spread them out through the season. I guarantee Texas vs Texas A&M will be played on Championship Saturday.

    Re: Big 12 Non Conference Season

    would it be a national cable channel or regional?

    No one really knows yet, but it will probably be pushed to basic cable within the footprint and then sports pack every where else. Just like the BTN.

    With their new rivalry with Nebraska, the Cy-Hawk game will always be at the beginning of year.

    Re: Big 12 Non Conference Season

    The later in the year the better for the iowa game, for attendance purposes. People show up for the warm september games whether its iowa or eastern backwoods state, if iowa was in oct or nov thatd get our season average attendance up.
