    Conference games before Jan. 1

    I'm sure there is a thread from last year on this, and probably the year before as well, all started by me. I hate the concept of playing conference games before New Year's. What is the logic of dumping an important conference game in the middle of a TV schedule that features a full slate of either NFL or CFBowl games, or perhaps both?

    I hate this practice. It's just dumb. Even worse for a team like UK, who looked hungover in a big way from Friday.

    I guess that is the price you pay to have a good non-conference game in Jan or Feb like UK at WVU this year.

    It's the reality of 18 and now some 20 game in-conference schedules. With 16, you could wait until the calendar flipped. Now, not so much...
