    New Big 12 Schedule Unfair? - CPR Quote

    Just checked this out and thought it was a decent read. CPR had some good comments on the new schedule and I agree. Think the 9 game conference schedule is gonna' hurt in the long run unless all the other conferences implement it too. Or we could just add 2 more teams in the near future

    If the mods could move this to the ISU FB or Big XII forum instead of the Intro/Welcome forum that would be great. First thread started, so I was a bit confused

    Iowa State made the choice to stay in the 10-school Big 12, knowing full well what it meant for football scheduling. Can't **** and moan about it now.

    Interesting...some on this board imply that CPR wants to play the toughest schedule in the nation so we can see where we measure up. Guess this shows he uses his head and not just his heart! Remember...CPR is a very intelligent man!

    Already some ****** bag Iowa fan saying Rhoads is "crying". If anyone from ISU comments on anything, Hawk fan screams "HE'S CRYING!". Idiots.

    Rhoads isn't ******** about the Big 12 playing 9 games, he's just saying that there should be a standard amount of conference games.

    ISU will now plays a defacto ten game conference schedule. There's a simple way to make it nine.

    There's nothing unfair about our new schedule and there isn't anything unfair about the Pac 12's schedule.

    Let the Big 12 die and join the Big East with Kansas, K-State and Missouri. Less money but more competitive. I'd rather get my *** kicked in the Fiesta Bowl than never be in the Fiesta Bowl at all.

    Re: New Big 12 Schedule Unfair? - CPR Quote

    I would agree that playing 9 conference games while most only play 8 certainly puts us at a disadvantage. And with the Iowa game stuck on the schedule every year, we aren't making life any easier for ourselves.

    There are two obvious steps that need to be taken to make sure we are on a level playing field with other BCS Schools: One, either drop back to an 8 game Big 12 schedule or push the other BCS conferences to 9 game schedules. Two, drop Iowa.

    Ha, we couldn't make the Big XII die. That was all up to Texas.

    He's absolutely right. Conferences that play more conference games are at a disadvantage getting to bowl games. Since we also play Iowa every year it makes it even tougher. I don't know how it washes out financially when the conference plays more conference games at the expense of getting a couple of more bowl teams, but I wish the Big 12 would re-consider the round-robin schedule.

    Obviously the administration of ISU, Kansas, KSU, and Mizzou ALL agreed that the Big 12 was a better option. I would have loved the Big East had the Big 12 died, but this is a better spot for us.

    The money we're getting will give us opportunity to be more competitive.

    An 8 game Big 12 schedule that worked like the old Big 10 schedule would be a-ok with me. You'd make sure UT and OU played every year. I wouldn't care who got dropped off the schedule in a given year, because it would give us an extra non-conference cream puff.

    In reality, it would bolster the Big 12's chances at getting 2 teams in the BCS.
