Tom Herman Connection with Luke Fickel
Since Herman and Fickel are friends is there a chance UC could get a home and home with Texas? Is there a chance this can happen? What say you.

Since the Big 12 plays 9 conference games, I would rate it as unlikely.

I'm sure we could get an away game at Texas, but no way we get a home and home.

No, not while we're G5. Even as a P5, who gets home & homes with the bluebloods? Almost always it's the other blue bloods. If we were P5, maybe a 2 for 1.

I don't see any reason it would not be a possibility to go to Austin to play. They have to fill their schedules out some way.

RE: Tom Herman Connection with Luke Fickel
I doubt we will get a home and home with the Longhorns. We'll see the coaches relationship pay off in other forms-- like earlier this month when Fickell and Herman had a clinic for recruits down at Florida Tech. I also would not be surprised to see a little quid pro quo at times with recruits, like we saw with Butch Jones and Rich Rod (ie. Adrian Witty was a high school teammate of Denard Robinson. RR worked with Jones to finding a spot for AW).

Texas has vacancies in their schedule in 2020, 2021, and 2022.

Big 12 has a 9 game conference schedule so every other year Texas will have 5 home conference games 4 away. With 3 remaining OC games to schedule each year it's possible one date could be available every other year for UC if Herman wants to play Fickel/UC. In 2017 Texas has 7 home games and 5 away.

I don't think there is anything in it for UT to schedule such a game and risk losing to UC

I agree. Particularly if the conventional wisdom is true--that UT didn't want the likes of UC in the Longhorns' private sandbox otherwise known as the Big 12.

Too bad UC couldn't catch them for a game during Charlie Strong's long slide out of relevance. If they could lose to Kansas they could certainly lose to UC. Of course we had our own issues going on concurrent with that!
