My reaction to the 2012 schedule was almost the same as Blutarsky's reaction. Placing Georgia Southern the week before Tech now that they've returned to the Triple Option is incredibly intelligent manipulation of the schedule.
Also interesting to see so much better spacing of opponents. The toughest back to back games vs. Tennessee (home) and then at Alabama in weeks 5 and 6. From a structure/spacing standpoint I have nothing but praise for McGarity on this one.
Flip side...that is one craptacular home slate. We'll end up with Buffalo, FAU and Georgia Southern all kicking off between 12:00 and 1:00. Ole Miss is hardly a barn burner, and then you have UT. It's about as easy as it could possibly get.
