The 2012 UT football schedule has finally been released, and talk about a bookend of a schedule.  Wow!  The Horns open Big 12 play with Oklahoma State and West Virginia and Oklahoma and then close with TCU and Kansas State. 

Not that Baylor, Texas Tech, Kansas, and Iowa State will be pushovers, but the start and end of this schedule is daunting.

Can't wait to find out why Texas-OU was pushed back a week, from the 6th to the 13th.

Can't wait to find out why there is no Thanksgiving game on the schedule.

Can't wait to hear the explanation for why the schedule was re-worked, completely, instead of just having TCU and West Virginia take the schedules of Missouri and A&M.

And isn't it smart of UT to get a bye week on the weekend of F1 racing in Austin.  Hate to say that smart moves like that are surprising, but it's true.

Feel sorry for people who made big plans around the schedule that was posted in previous years and everyone expected.  I can hear the scrambling around already.

Six and a half months until kick-off!
