    2007 Football Schedule

    I don't think anyone expected our schedule to be this difficult this year. I sure didn't.

    7 of our 8 conference opponents have been ranked in the Top 25 at some point in the season with 3 of them currently residing in the Top 10. The only one that hasn't is Colorado. A couple of them have since fallen out of the rankings but it really shows the depth of the conference this year.

    Also, 7 of the 8 teams (or all 8 if Nebraska can get 2 more wins) will be bowl eligible.

    Is this just the bathrooms and concessions or the whole kit-n-kaboodle?

    I think your post got lost on its way to the correct thread.

    I agree. It's a tough schedule.

    Iowa was still fairly healthy when we played them, and they may end up being bowl eligible. Kent State and Toledo are both pretty bad, but both have a chance to be bowl eligible as well, though the odds aren't good.

    UNI may well be on it's way to a 1AA championship. If those things all come together, though the odds are slim, we will have played 11 bowl eligible teams, and one national champion.

    That's as tough as any schedule in the nation, IMO.

    That's one thing I love about the Big 12. We don't have to apologize to anyone year-in and year-out when it comes to winning games. If we're winning in the Big 12, we're as good as anyone in the nation.

    Careful, jumbo. You might be beginning to sound like a certain ex-coach of ours.

    Imagine this - if the dice roll the right way and Oklahoma finds itself in the National Championship game and wins, and UNI wins I-AA National Championship, we lost to two National Champions this year. How many teams get to claim that in a year?

    One for the books.

    Sagarin says we have #25 toughest schedule. SEC is tougher than rain.
