    Gotta think so. Either primetime Saturday on ESPN or CBS on a Saturday afternoon.

    Good call. At any rate I'm happy with the bulk of our marquee games ending up on weeknights. It's much easier to pace the living room like a lunatic if the kids are in bed by tip-off.

    Either one is a nice audience to say some Jayhawk tears.

    Re: Big 12/Big Monday Schedule

    The thing I like about it is that three straight weeks should really stick out in the minds of viewers, and hopefully recruits. I feel like if you played three weeks but it was split up evenly over the season, it wouldn't be as noticeable. Being on Big Monday every week for 3 weeks in a row lead viewers (read: recruits) to start thinking, "Damn, these guys are getting a ton of attention." My hope anyway.

    Getting one of the CBS slots would be cool. How many of those does the Big 12 typically get per season? Can't be more than one or two.

    Maybe KU @ ISU is on Saturday? That would be sweet for out of towners. It's been Big Monday games for last two years and haven't been able to make it there.

    Please let this FB season at least be good enough to tide us over. Too excited for hoops to start!

    plus they'll be able get into a routine for the short turn arounds. That's good, I think.

    Sounds about right. I remember Oklahoma State at Kansas being 1 last year and Texas having 1 in the non-conference. Not sure if there was another one.

    I think this is a very good point.

    Agree although tough teams don't care about logistics. They just ball and win.

    Does CBS even do Big 12 conference games?

    And really, ISU's got nothing to lose on the 2 short turnaround games. @KU and @OU are probably games that a lot of people would predict as losses anyway. I kind of love it.

    Re: Big 12/Big Monday Schedule

    I just knew they would screw us with the trip to KU. I am sure we will be somewhere in Texas that Saturday just to make it that much harder.

    I just wish we could have had our big games when the team is in a routine. I HATE going on the road for Monday games. We have the chance for a really special season and I want every advantage that we can get.
