You guys are acting as if he is scheduling duke or Virginia or UK, we’ve got games with pretty much bottom dwellers of big conference, besides a couple. Calm down fellas.

Louisville is a huge add to the schedule. AND its a home/home.

Richmond is border line preseason ranked...texas tech is pre ranked 7 by NBC, Tennessee 10. Xavier is always a guarantee and St Johns/Arizona are not bottom of their conference.

You're pretty off base with that take.

Illinois and Arkansas were both ranked 8-12 spots higher than us last season in the final NET ranking and are both considered programs on the rise in their respective conferences that are definitively high major.

Kansas State was bad last season but they're also one season removed from a 4 seed - while also playing in one of college basketball's best conferences, so it's not like they're that far removed from national prominence.

This is the best type of neutral site arrangement we could ask for other than something like the Maui Invitational, which we're playing in the following season.

the tourney this year has Arizona and Texas Tech in it. The one next year isn't awesome but it's 1000x better than the whatever tourney we have been playing with the last couple years.

Duke and UK don't do home and homes. Like most blue bloods.They do neutral courts with the same 5 teams every year. Got Louisville, A top 25ish Richmond team, Arizona and/or Texas Tech on a neutral. Probably a top 10 non conference schedule in the whole country. But you're right, not that good.

Are you retarded? Illinois finished in the top 25 to end the season playing in the best conference in the country. Who knows how far they could have gone in tourney. Brad Underwood is recruiting his ass off and lot's of momentum with a top 15 recruiting class coming in. K-State has a top 20 recruiting class coming in and proven coach in Bruce Weber, they're always scrappy. Arkansas is on the rise with Eric Musselman at the helm now and a top 10 recruiting class coming in. You know the guy who made your little hero look like an inept fool? We might be the least talented team on paper of the 4 teams in another years time. GTFOH

Those teams are all good enough to make you want to be sure to check out the game. A lot of the tournaments we had been playing, that hasn't always been the case.

I think these will ensure we have more tier 1 and tier 2 games on the schedule, which is going to help everything...recruiting, making the team better, earning a better resume.

our own fans couldn't watch our tournament games before for the most part (without dropping a stupid amount of money for a subscription that barely worked anyway) and now everybody will have an opportunity to watch.


This is building a brand.

I dont know who shit in your coffee, but you clearly miss everything with this post. Everyone is acted accordingly. We are now playing Tier 1 games instead of tier 4 games. Win or lose tier 3/4 games do absolutely nothing to help you
