The game verse Oklahoma and at Oklahoma State will be some extremely tough match ups. But other then that, its a pretty soft schedule.
Florida (the other favorite) has at LSU and Georgia, Florida St, and probably Alabama.
USC (another possible undefeated record) has at Ohio State, at Cal, at Oregon.
I think Texas has the easiest road out of those 3 teams. I put USC schedule above Texas becuase its 3 road trips versus Texas with only one road trip against a high ranked team.
Texas does have a pretty soft schedule this year. I think the only way their schedule looks tougher is if a Big 12 north team does really well and Texas takes them in the Big 12 title game. Honestly, I think that's why SEC teams and Big 12 teams get the nod more often that not, because of the conference championship games.
It's basically the same as last year, which was very tough. The only difference is that most of the talent from teams like Tech and Mizzou are gone. But they are being replaced by Robinson coming back, the guy at Baylor is sick too. Really the North is dragging down the conference unless Nebraska or Colorado can come back. In the 09s, the North was the strength, it's all cyclical. I'll admit the OOC is not as tough in years past where we played Arkansas and Ohio State.
yeah i agree. WTF happened to the North? Colorado and Nebraska totally disappeared in the 2000's.
I'll be rooting for you guys in the Big 12, I can't stand OU, A&M, or Tech. I seriously hate those schools, I only hate Arizona more.
I used to like ASU until I started arguing with you too.
Anyway good luck on the season and no injuries.
