    That's what it should be but I cannot imagine Texas agreeing to play up in Ames in mid November. I bet it is different with Texas playing one of the first conference games in Ames.

    If I could design the Big 12 schedule (assuming 10-team setup remained intact) I would anchor each school's opening game and finale, with a loose rivalry on each end, then rotate the others back-to-front or front-to-back.

    Iowa State's would be:
    Opener: KSU
    Finale: West Virginia

    The rotation guarantees OU and Texas can't avoid late-season Ames trips entirely.

    I hope it isn't just flipped. I hate to go 9 games with no bye week.

    If it was just flipped, it would already be out. I remember hearing something awhile back from Jamie that mentioned the schedule will be reviewed after the year and changes will be made.

    It will change. TCU's schedule was a little messed up due to conference change. They played KU pretty early this year.

    I doubt it will be flipped. There is no way that the big 12 give Tech and ourselves no conference bye week 2 years in a row.

    Re: 2013 FB schedule

    The Big 12 has no title game (obvious I know), so they will probably take a look at the current state of the teams, project who the hot teams will be next year. Try to schedule as to put good teams against each other late (OSU vs OU last year, and KSU vs Texas this year). For this reason, I think the schedule will be turned upside down. I agree no way in hell TExas comes up here after mid-October. Hell, the Big 12 probably thinks its a crime we do home/home with Texas every year.

    I wonder if the Big 12 will start to do what the SEC does. Notice how most SEC teams get cupcakes later on in the season? Not a bad time to fluff the record and get a boost in BCS ratings.

    Lastly, I'm not liking this 2 weeks off right after our first game. Therefore, I predict a Kansas or a TCU will slide up into our second game.

    If a Big 12 game does get moved into the slot, it could look something like this (I'm using KSU -- seems like league prefers to keep a "probably meaningless" ISU-KU game toward the end of the season — TCU would not surprise me, as you said)

    K-State was projected to finish firmly in the bottom half of the conference. K-State/Texas having big implications is a lucky coincidence for the conference, not part of the plan.

    It was my impression schedules were being redone to better evaluate/accommodate the new additions to the conference. It'll be interesting to see how the new commish implements his vision and direction.
