    What are your expectations?

    What are your expectations next season (2011) in this "round robin" approach? I know it will be easier to get two Big 12 teams to the BCS now, helping the league. I think 7-5 or 8-4 sounds reasonable.

    I don't think it changes a thing for the better. CU and NU were almost guaranteed losses for ISU in the past, even with CU's sucking of late. So change two sure losses here for TX and OU = even. Add in games against TT and A&M yearly, and we have a tougher schedule, but more consistent. So future good years are most likely not due to soft schedule.

    The names change, but the game remains the same. It will depend on which non-conference game gets shuttled as Pollard has them scheduled to the end of time. 99% probability ISU-Iowa stays. Too much instate money both ways to cancel. So we lose likely a sure win non-con.

    But using 2012 as template, let's guess. On Will be chart, changes are bold.

    Schedule Was
    Sat, Sep 01 Tulsa Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 08 Iowa at Iowa City, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 15 Western Illinois Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 22 Western Kentucky (Family Weekend) Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 29 Texas A&M * Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Oct 06 Kansas (Homecoming) * Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Oct 13 Baylor * at Waco, Texas
    Sat, Oct 20 Nebraska * Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Oct 27 Kansas State * at Manhattan, Kan.
    Sat, Nov 03 Oklahoma State * at Stillwater, Okla.
    Sat, Nov 10 Colorado * at Boulder, Colo.
    Sat, Nov 17 Missouri * Ames, Iowa

    Schedule will be
    Sat, Sep 01 Tulsa Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 08 Iowa at Iowa City, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 15 Western Illinois Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 22 Texas (Family Weekend) Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Sep 29 Texas A&M * Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Oct 06 Kansas (Homecoming) * Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Oct 13 Baylor * at Waco, Texas
    Sat, Oct 20 Oklahoma * Ames, Iowa
    Sat, Oct 27 Kansas State * at Manhattan, Kan.
    Sat, Nov 03 Oklahoma State * at Stillwater, Okla.
    Sat, Nov 10 Texas Tech * at Tech
    Sat, Nov 17 Missouri * Ames, Iowa

    OK, now tell me W-L.

    Assuming the schedule retooling works this way (you're probably right -- although schedule sequence might be altered):
    Tulsa W
    at Iowa L
    Western Illinois W
    Texas L
    Texas A&M W
    Kansas W
    at Baylor W
    Oklahoma W
    at Kansas State L
    at Oklahoma State L
    at Texas Tech L
    Missouri W

    A total guess at this point.

    I prefer the round-robin to divisional. I don't like the "easy/hard" rotation dichotomy, because it's generally a reason to make excuses (and, some seasons, playing A&M/OSU/Baylor wasn't automatically "cake" compared to TT/UT/OU overall and there was no way to prove the difference, either).
