    The Big 12 is tough

    As if we didn't know that the Big 12 was tough already, but I was recently looking at OSU's schedule and wow. I know we have made fun about OSU's schedule to date, but the remaining schedule hurts to think about. I feel bad for OSU. I doubt anyone in the country has a tougher schedule than this:

    Vs #24 ISU
    Vs #23 TCU
    @ #4 KSU
    Vs #13 WVU
    Vs #17 TTU
    @ #9 OU
    @ Baylor

    That is 6 ranked teams in a row. Their saving grace is only having 2 of their ranked opponents on the road.

    Kansas and TCU come in a close 2nd, but I can't get over 6 ranked teams in a row.

    Re: The Big 12 is tough

    Our last three games have been three of those teams. Is this an indirect complement post?

    No. Of course it is a round robin schedule so there is only so much that is going to change from one school to another. Still, we actually have one of the better schedules.

    Based on current rankings our Big 12 schedule:

    Vs #17 TTU
    @ #23 TCU
    Vs #4 KSU
    @ OSU
    Vs Baylor
    Vs #9 OU
    @ #25 Texas
    @ Kansas
    Vs #13 WVU


    Longest stretch of ranked teams is already past. Also we only have 4 Big 12 road games this year and only two of those are to ranked opponents and the other two are to opponents just in the polls (#23 and #25).

    Maybe we should start cheering for the other team during the game.

    I bet that would get some national attention.

    Re: The Big 12 is tough

    It ain't easy being a Cyclone fan. We are already ahead of my earlier expectations. ISU can go to another bowl. That exceeds my earlier expectations. The Big 12 isn't any tougher than we knew it would be before the season started. I'm a happy camper.
