Finally got a feel of what Desert Vista's football schedule this fall could look like just in time for it to change.

The March 26 meeting that is supposed to put everyone in one room to hammer out holes in Division I schedules is coming soon.

The struggle to schedule games might mean changes to accepted deals will be scratched in order to make the bigger picture work.

According to Thunder athletic director TJ Snyder, they have a schedule that will include Marana Mountain View, Cienega, Boulder Creek and Peoria Centennial along with their assigned games (Mountain Pointe, Brophy, Corona del Sol and Dobson).

Desert Vista will open the season in California against Mission Hills at a neutral site as part of the Brothers in Arms event over Labor Day weekend.

The silly part is how the previous two years was all about geographical scheduling and reducing travel.

Now Snyder is having to schedule 60 percent of his games and the team has to travel to the Tucson area twice, Anthem, Peoria and California over the next two-year block.

So there you have it.

For now.
