Fine with me. So what's our schedule looking like?

18 AAC (9H/9A)
UCLA (A)
Xavier (A)
Florida (N)
Wyoming/UAB is it? (N)
Iowa? (N)
2 games with the Cayman islands thing? (H?)
Mississippi State (H)
Cleveland State (H)

What am I missing? Do I have the locations right?

I'm really happy with this schedule. We will have plenty of opportunities to test ourselves in the regular season.

Iím happy but not overly. It just sucks we are playing 3 teams who are 300+ in kenpom.

Last year we played zero. 300+ teams.

So donít expect this to be a top 75 non conference schedule or anything. Those low level buy games really hurt your SOS

True, but we have plenty of chances to show how good we are. If we win the majority of the big games we will get a good seed and thats all I care about.

Hopefully the AAC is better this year. Got to remember that we will play WSU twice which we didn't have last year... That will be a nice boost. Temple will/should be better, UCF will be solid, UConn will have a better year to. Schedule is looking pretty good. Just gotta win those big non conference games.

100%

Both the OOC and AAC games look solid over all. Yeah we have a few bad cupcakes, but the overall is good.

AAC had a down year last year. Looks much better top to bottom, and I would not count out SMU or UCF. I think WSU and UC are a notch above, but those teams will fight hard.

The in conference games really hurt us last year, but the OOC is better and the in conference should be as well. Im not worried about the schedule. This team is loaded and if they live up to the hype I see a top 10 finish.

The sub-300 RPI teams will really hurt us. Our schedule is pretty great RPI/KenPom wise for the most part. But, playing teams below 300 RPI almost cancels out games against top 100 RPI, imo.

Happy with it, I will be at every home game, and we just need to win. Blow out the bad teams to leave no doubts.
