    I don't think it helps at all, but I wouldn't single this out as the reason they lost. I brought this up today... http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...cheduling.html

    The Big 12 needs to a better job of scheduling as it relates to these type of road trips.

    It certainly didn't help. On the flip side we need to be tough enough to battle through it.

    I'd file this under "E". For excuse.
    Right next to "Chris Allen is playing out of position".

    It may be an issue. How many Texas fans had smart phones? Evidently not very many.

    Question: How many Texas Fans had the LHN on their smart phone?

    Re: Traveling to Texas in 4 days had to be an issue

    Agree it didn't help, but as I understand it, the team charters a plane for both Texas trips. The streamlines travel and should negate any of the lethargy that extended, commercial flying with connections, etc.

    The team got to spend 2 nights in their own beds between the games. Wanted to keep them in as normal of a routine as possible. Remember what happened last year between the Okie State game and Missouri game when we didn't come home in between?

    Missing class and 2 or 3 more nights of hotel rooms I'd guess. The flight is what, an hour and a half? I can't imagine a short flight like that in the same time zone makes a real difference.
