This type of a Non-conference schedule benefits the ladies how again? - -nothing even close to any kind of a wow factor. - -So they go out beat up these lower quality teams like we see every year and then come big 12 play - same results. - -where is the Wow factor in this schedule? - You can only get better - -stronger by playing stronger competition - -it's not here
