We try to be fair here at Resource, and have a consistent message about
the issues that are important to the game. As you well know we've
been on a scheduling tangent of late.
While continuing to play catchup with the week's news, this silly AP release came to our attention. Much like LSU's scheduling puff-piece, ESPN picked up this homage to Arkansas States' OOC schedule. The difference? Tiny little Arkansas State's OOC schedule had some meat to it!
Arkansas State is set to play Missouri and Oklahoma State, two midlevel programs in BCS conferences, as well as a softer matchup against Tennessee-Martin.
Why is it that the schools that have little to gain other than compensation are willing to take on the big boys, yet the big boys can't play in the sand box together?
I wish a few more established programs would end the shenanigans and find the courage and commitment to the game to make a run at each other.
