    Big Monday games

    Anyone know when these are going to be released? I'm expecting we get at least 2 of them this year, maybe 3.

    A quick google search shows that typically those have come out in mid to late july, so i'd imagine any time now.

    Re: Big Monday games

    That's what I had found too, which is why I was curious if anyone knew.

    Re: Big Monday games

    I'm guessing we get KU at home, maybe we get it for michigan, at OSU, at KU, and possibly iowa depending on the hype they get

    The Big Monday games will only be Big 12 games

    Re: Big Monday games

    I think maybe the KU games, just because of how both went last year. After that, no. Even getting both of the KU games would be kind of shocking. ISU just doesn't have that national recognition yet. I think it's clear that it is coming, at least in MBB, but ESPN isn't ready to bet heavy on ISU.

    Re: Big Monday games

    I don't know, there are clearly 4 teams in the top tier of the Big XII and then everyone else. I expect those 4 teams, KU, OSU, Baylor and ISU, to get the bulk of the Big Monday games. I think we'll definitely get a KU game on Big Monday and then probably an OSU game as well.

    Re: Big Monday games

    I wouldn't be surprised to get only one (KU at home) ... the odds of getting multiple slots has to be greater than any time in the past decade.

    You know there will be multiple Texas games too, no matter how bad they are.

    Re: Big Monday games

    I think we just get 1 as well. KU @ Hilton

    We've got a shot at 2, but cannot see getting more than that.

    Sure but I'm guessing their games will be against KU, OSU or Baylor.

    Re: Big Monday games

    I suspect that K-State will get a couple as well...

    Re: Big Monday games

    I think there's usually eight Big Monday games. If I'm in charge, here are the clear top seven games for the upcoming season, and you could go a few different ways for the list after this.

    KU @ OSU
    OSU @ KU
    KU @ ISU
    KU @ BU
    OSU @ BU
    OSU @ ISU
    KU @ KSU

    For whatever reason (I assume there's some restrictions on how these games are allocated that I'm not fully aware of), however, ESPN manages to massively screw up this process every year. Last year, notably, #3 KU @ #11 KSU could only be found on the intertoobs with Dave fking Armstrong, at the same time West Virginia and Texas Tech battled for 8th place on ESPN2.

    Re: Big Monday games

    big12.com wrote an article about this a few years ago. ESPN chooses the games, with input from the conference. My guess is its 98% ESPN choosing, and 2% Big 12.

    i'd expect both KU and OSU to get their 4 games max.
