New B12 = more ISU FB on TV
A while back for 2010 I estimated that 8 of 12 games would be televised, with a shot at 9 of 12 if NUI game was picked up as it was (http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...s-make-tv.html).
A significant reason for so many ISU games making tv in 2010 is due to the schedule including the top Big 12 teams and good non-conference games.
With the proposed new round robin schedule, more games will be on tv based soley on the opponent having a national draw.
The real challenge will be in remaining competitive and bowl eligible when the tv exposure increases.
Does more tv = better recruiting, which then = better results or not? Only time will tell for sure.
