    Big 12/SEC Challenge

    Hadn't checked the B12-SEC Challenge lineup in a couple months, just looking at it again.

    Big 12/SEC Challenge schedule

    I like the idea of an inter-conference challenge. But it's not all that well-organized sprawling nature of the schedule; matchups don't seem to balance recent conference standings very well (overall it's OK, but South Carolina at Oklahoma State? for example).

    Some of that is because of quick turnaround. Some of that is bound to improve next season, but it may have benefited by waiting an additional year.

    Opinions?

    Re: Big 12/SEC Challenge

    they had to scramble to put it together this year given previous scheduling commitments (UK/Bay), its supposed to be better organized next year and be more compact. too bad we got one of the worst teams - but we have enough on our schedule this year so maybe we wanted it that way?

    "the W they handed to us"?... oh,boy. I understand what you're saying and should-wins are often thrown out there, but there's a reason they play the games and we have an inexperienced group opening the season ourselves. Auburn actually will be improved. Considering we play Michigan, at BYU, Iowa, a tough UNI team, and Boise ST/Akron possiblities in Hawaii,etc. in non-conference action, I'm far from disappointed as to who our SEC match-up would be. I'm glad to draw Auburn, and it has nothing to do with lack of faith in our team or low expectations. Any win in Hilton is a great win! Toughest non-conference schedule we've had in some time, imo.

    i was unaware the SEC allowed any of their teams in any sport to play real competition before the conference season began.
