Football Scheduling For Dummies: By Ron Guenther

Hey Ron, how about 7 home games? How about having back to back winning seasons and back to back bowl games before you start scheduling road games at Oklahoma? Again: 5 bowl games in 17 seasons on the job. 78-117-2.

Guenther takes a different approach. "I'm probably in the minority,'' he said. "But I'm one of the few that feel as a program gets better and is heading from one level to the next from competitive to championship — I'd like to think you'd have two BCS games."

The football Guy's problem is that he's skipping a step - you don't go directly from 5 bowl games in 17 years to suddenly consistently competing for the BCS championship.
