    Ok. Thanks. I was interested in reading that rule as I was unaware of it.

      I know of WT vs ENMU .. But what are the others ?
      UTPB ... too new to have one?
      Western New Mexico ... is it Eastern makes since name wise it make sense ?
      Commerce .. Midwestern maybe?
      Angelo State .. No clue
      Tarleton wasnt it ACU before they left to go to Southland

      I need answers ! What does your fanbase / school recognize as the Rivalry Game ?
      Even though the two schools don't play each other this season, Div III Sul Ross State in Alpine & UTPB would seemingly be natural rivals due to proximity.

        Since the Red Raiders of Lubbock are sorta isolated from the rest of the Big XII (-2) out in the south plains of west Texas, perhaps schools like UNM, NMSU, & UTEP, due to close proximity, would be more natural rivals. TT has played the Lobos infrequently in recent years. Have also played UTEP & NMSU once or twice in recent years as well.

          If Tarleton State has aspirations of going the FCS level, they will need the works.

            Michael, Tech did play UNM for years. It was an awful one sided affair. Rarely was UNM competitive. NMSU and UTEP are the same distance as Norman and Stillwater. TCU in Ft Worth is the closest school to Tech.

              Unless you consider ACU in Abilene. I’m sure KK would love to schedule them and more cup cakes like them to hang on to his Czar status.

                In Michael's defense, when he was in school the world was flat, so calculated distances may have been different.

                    Hopefully, fingers crossed, he will be long gone before 2024 and schedule can be adjusted. No offense, Tech is really waivering on being also ran like Kansas. The last thing we need is an embarrassing loss from a weak FCS program.

                      He's not doing anything different than Leach did. That's the only reason Leach's record looks like it does. He was notorious for scheduling FCS cupcakes. Heck one year, they played TWO in one season.

                        Look at in Conference records of the two coaches. Obviously, Leach was doing something different.

                          No offense taken. As long as we get a check!

                            Apples and oranges. Two different conferences. Leach got a cupcake north schedule every other year, plus 1 less conference game, where Kliff faces everyone each season with an extra conference game. Overall Conference is much tougher now than during Leach's tenure. You replace Colorado with WVU, A&M with TCU. You lost Nebraska, but play an extra conference game each year to offset that. Plus the rise of Baylor, etc., etc., etc.

                              Both facilities will be nice.

                              Here is an idea TSU new renovation

                              Quite impressive facility.

                                The Conference is weaker now than during Leach’s tenure. The North did get weaker after the initial startup. Nebraska and Colorado had solid programs. Mizzou was up and coming. A&M was solid at first but struggled later. Playoff Committee only looks at Blow U now. Different story when Big 12 was intact. There was credibility. WV and TCU are good pickups, but they do not carry the weight or stature of those 4 that left.

                                If KK would’ve had to coach during that time my guess would’ve been either last or just above Baylor in Big 12 South every year.
