2013 Schedule: Things we know and things we think we know

It's way too early to have many details about the schedule for next season. But we actually know a lot more at this stage than we have in years past.

♦ SEC Schedule: The SEC released their 2013 Baseball Schedule a couple of months ago (unlike the Big 12, which has always kept such information tightly held)

♦ Mention has been made this season that both the San Francisco series and the Memphis series are home-and-away agreements that will bring USF to CoMo for a weekend in 2013 and send Missouri to Memphis for an away weekend series in 2013.  [Update:  Memphis has released their official 2013 schedule, which verifies the date of Mizzou's series with Memphis on the schedule below]

♦ Because of the length of the SEC schedule, there will only be 4 weekend non-conference series at the beginning of the season. Since MU usually plays on the road until March, we can expect only 2 home series prior to the beginning of SEC play.

♦ Tex and Hunter mentioned on the air that MU's opening series in 2013 will be in the middle of SEC country at Southern Mississippi, a pretty good Conference USA team (32-24 in 2012)

6/5/12 addition:  A follower of SimmonsField.com reminded me that Tex said the home opener will be March 1st against Northwestern.  That fills in the last question mark for the weekend series schedule.
