"Larry Keating, senior associate athletics director at Kansas, said he thinks the non-conference game could become a reality in a couple of years. He said it would be an easy sell to ESPN and CBS. Self hasnt been thrilled about the idea, but he is starting to come around and called the second game a possibility."

We could do a Sprint Center and whatever Dallas is, based opposite to our conference home scheds.

why would we let them get experience against for when we play them when it really matters?

i get it but it's not like the bball team needs the cash enough to potentially play a team 4 times in one season

Experience goes both ways. Texas learns about Kansas and Kansas learns about Texas. Plus that extra cash is stupid. A ton of businesses/organizations stop going for profit when they have enough.

I think that would be awesome. The Big 12 would have to rethink their 2 games North, 1 game South thing, though.

I've said for a long time that we should play each conf team
once, and open up 5 spots for "glamour games".

Who would Nebraska and Missouri and Colorado and KSUck and ISU schedule for their glamor games?

Never mind, I don't care either.

KSU should go to the Missouri Valley already. Then axe A&M from the South.

While not going, I'm looking forward to watching the UT game this year.....

I think they will be the 2nd best team in the country.

The three people that factor in our favor:

1. Collins
2. Cole
3. Barnes

Two versus UT unlikely: Texas coach Rick Barnes says hed love to play KU twice a season: once in conference play and again in a game added to the slate.

Itd be playing the one conference game in Lawrence or Austin and the other in Kansas City or Dallas, Self said.

Self said he did not believe KU ever would schedule two games versus the Longhorns. The two teams could always meet in the Big 12 tournament.

If we are going to play somebody else, another great name say a Villanova could we get as much out of playing Texas again than Villanova? Nobody in our league has done it thus far. I dont know if its something that will happen. Its on the board.

Wouldn't be able to play a conference championship in football if we only had 10 teams. I like the idea of 5 glamor games. Just set up big games to allow for more possibilities for CBS and ESPN. For the weaker teams just schedule against the weaker teams for more competitive games. Scheduling won't be perfect every year due to surprises, but KU could play OU, UT, or any other school the big 12 felt we should play twice.

I just hope KU can break the recent trend and actually beat UT on the road for once.
