    Re: Williams Blog: Football schedule won't get much easier



    I'm assuming that the difference in difficulty between us and Kansas is that they play us and we play them. It is nice having them be at the bottom.

    Phil Steele rates ISU's schedule the third hardest behind only Notre Dame and Mississippi State.

    Re: Williams Blog: Football schedule won't get much easier

    Why are we, Iowa State, playing at Tulsa and Toledo. San Jose State is questionable but at least that is a recruiting area for us.

    The only thing that will make our schedule look easier is when we are considered a top team in the Big 12.

    It's got to be a 2-fer-1 with another game at Iowa State in a future year. No way ISU would do a home-&-home with a MAC school.

    Re: Williams Blog: Football schedule won't get much easier

    Are you seriously worried about playing games against the Tulsa's and Toledo's of this world? ISU should be strong enough that we don't have to worry about playing teams that are named after cities instead of states.

    Maybe Pollard scheduled them hoping for some TV money to buyout the future away games? We should beat them either way.

    Re: Williams Blog: Football schedule won't get much easier

    It is not about worrying about playing them on the road...it is about why not a home game with someone else! But lets be honest...we are not a powerhouse program and therefore scheduling is more difficult. Even though we are in a BCS league...we are not in a position to dictate to others...

    Pretty sure it is a straight home-&-home. Looks like it was agreed to in 2009.

    I don't like it either but it's not unheard of. Texas Tech always seems to have the weirdest home-&-homes. They're playing at Texas State this fall.

    Re: Williams Blog: Football schedule won't get much easier

    We really do need to stop going to places like Tulsa and Toledo. Or, at the very least, its gotta be a 2 for 1 deal.

    Re: Williams Blog: Football schedule won't get much easier

    I assume if there was some sort of return game, Iowa State would have it listed under future schedules...Not positive. I'll do some checking.
