There’s no denying the best thing about playing in a ten-team major conference.
As it was last year, its first as a 10-team league, the Big 12 will be the only major conference that has complete round-robin scheduling in football and basketball. Nine football games and 18 basketball games don’t sit well with all coaches, but the league overall was happy with the system.
Tough shit, coaches. As a fan, this matters a helluva lot more to me:
“In the ACC and SEC there are some institutions that have 100-year histories of playing each other that aren’t going to be playing each other every year. I think the reality of that and the reality of the larger number have kind of sunk in.”
For you, maybe. In SEC-land, not so much. I’m a little jealous.
