Texas, Florida announce future home-and-home series
« on: May 10, 2019, 12:35:53 PM »
In 2031 and 2032. 

So Texas' future OOC schedule continues its trend of having one pretty nice marquee program each season and a couple of regional teams and/or scrubs for season openers and regional recruiting purposes, and now looks like this:

2019: LaTech, LSU, @Rice
2020: USF, @LSU, UTEP
2021: ULaLa, @Arkansas, Rice
2022: Alabama, UTSA
2023: Rice, @Alabama
2024: Colorado State, Michigan, UTSA
2025: Ohio State, UTEP
2026: @Ohio State, UTSA
2027: @Michigan, UTEP
2028: Georgia, UTSA
2029: @Georgia, UTEP
2030: @Florida, UTSA
2031: Florida, UTEP
2032: @Arizona State
2033: Arizona State

The Arkansas game doesn't really thrill me all that much, but it's an old rivalry so I can live with it.  Arizona State is somewhat less interesting to me as well, but there's only so many marquee teams out there I suppose.

Other than the two you mentioned, Utee, those are some studley opponents you've got lined up there.  Many are the same as the ones OU has lined up.

Maybe the ADs of both schools are reading from the same primer on how to schedule if you want to get into the CFP.

For sure that's part of it.

I also think it's a shot to the portions of each of our two fan bases that seem to want to change conferences, as if the ADs are saying, "Look, we can schedule the best in the SEC and the B1G, without having to change conferences."

And I can't say I disagree, I love the idea of playing the Alabamas and Georgias and Michigans and Ohio States, without having to play their conference dregs like Illinois and Indiana and Kentucky and Texas A&M.

Baseball? Whats that?
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

This right here. ^^^
For all the hand wringing and teeth gnashing about the Big 12 being "disadvantaged" (Yeah, that was me), the Big 12 now looks pretty rosy.  I am sooooo glad OU didn't flip to the PAC 12.  With the new TV deals and OOC schedules like this, I'm feeling pretty good about the conference.

I wonder if there's an additional agenda.  I don't know about the UT fan-base, but a lot of Sooner fans want to see OU in the SEC.  I don't think the OU administration wants to be in the SEC, and having the OOC schedule loaded with SEC teams for the next decade and a half would make it difficult to reconstitute that OOC schedule if OU did indeed join that conference.

It might not be as devious as all that, it could be as simple as attempting to give those fans what they want, without the logistical problems of actually switching to the SEC (or any other conference that is less geographically close to OU as the current B12 is).

I don't like being in a conference with West Virginia.
