Matter talks 9 game conference schedule, KU Associate AD not a math major

Everyone seems to be in favor of it.  Matter also points out the premium on non-conference games, and how K-State now has to work games against Miami, Oregon and Virginia Tech that were scheduled in the Ron Prince era.  Ron Prince, the gift that keeps on giving.


The KU quotes in question after the jump:

“Schools in any conference tend to rise to the level of the better schools, and what this does is force that even more,” Kansas Senior Associate Athletics Director Larry Keating said. “Clearly you’re not counting on a rotation or a home-and-away balance to get a break for a year. You’re going to play the same eight schools every year, so you better be ready to play."

And then this, which is either inside information on his part, or a profound misunderstanding of how schedules are done.

“The way it’ll probably work out is we’ll have four conference games at home, four on the road and then the Arrowhead game,” Keating said. “The nine-game issue doesn’t create as much of an imbalance as it does for some. I think that’s good for us, and there’s every intention of maintaining the Arrowhead game.”
