Kansas series in jeopardy?
The Big 12 has made it official. They'll go to a 9 game full round robin schedule apparently starting next season.

Kansas already has 4 OOC games scheduled in 2011 (us, McNeese State, Georgia Tech and UTEP). I would assume they'd have to drop one of those games. It won't be GA Tech. McNeese State seems like the logical choice, but that would mean a conference game would have to be played on opening day. Not likely to happen. Hopefully they drop UTEP.

In 2012, Kansas only has 3 OOC games scheduled right now and in 2013 they have one OOC game scheduled. Perhaps the series gets pushed back a year?

If we have a contract they will need to pay us to get out of it.

If this is the case, I know of another interstate team we just played 2 weeks ago that may be looking for a game since Missouri has broke up with them. Rematch?

Not unless we get a home game. Kansas is a big game for us, can't give up a home game with them even if it is for UofI.

Unless of course they are willing to play here, but I really doubt that.

Kansas buys out of our contract and we give that money to U of I for a DeKalb game.

I don't think money is the problem. If it was, we would have just paid UofI to come here with the Kansas money originally.

Wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they don't end up coming to DeKalb. No teams of note want to come to DeKalb anymore. Maybe it's the corn liquor. Not sure.

It doesn't affect Illinois' scheduling because Missouri and Illinois decided not to renew their series after this season back in 2009. Illinois has already filled their 2011 schedule.

At least for now it's safe. Wouldn't surprise me if we play next year in Kansas and THEN they get out of coming to DeKalb the following year.

Keeping the game in DeKalb seems to be a priority for Jeff Compher. I am beginning to like the guy, he is a good listener and I think that our scheduling has improved during his tenure.
