One thing is clear from this schedule, Bobbie Kelsey isn't afraid to play a tough schedule and put her girls to the test.  Games against Kansas, BYU, Washington State, Marquette, and Green Bay are all really tough tests against teams that nearly all made NCAA appearances last year.  Add 2 games against Nebraska(one of the better Big 12 teams a year ago) during the B1G Schedule and this team will be hard pressed to find some big time success this season, but it could be a year to set the stage for the years to come.
