Mack normally likes to schedule 1 BCS team of good but not great quality like Arkansas or UCLA in 2010 and 2011. That way the nonconference schedule is at least respectable without a high probability of losing.The 2009 schedule is pathetic, there is no other way to describe it. Losing Arkansas hurt a lot because they may be half-way decent this season.
Yep. And has been mostly irrelevant since then. BUT -- maybe Brewster can turn things around up there.The last time UT played Minnesota was 1936 - Minn won. An outstanding player for Minnesota was their quarterback (blocking back ) named Bud Wilkinson. Minn won the NC in 1934, 1935 and 1936.
