2020-2021 Non-Conference Schedule

With Brannen posting UC v. L'ville on Nov 13, I'm wondering if anyone else has a beat on what non-conference games are on the schedule for the upcoming season. I know of:

Barclays Preseason NIT (Arizona, Texas Tech, & St. John's)
L'ville @ home
X @ home

@NKU
@Tennessee

6 very solid, presumably all Q1/Q2 match-ups.

I love the scheduling. Interesting games, most will be on national tv, and itís a great recruiting tool if you are in a weaker league. You can point to all the non league, big games. And you only have to win a couple and it looks good.

Interesting theme happening around the country that may be something that last years to come - bus rides vs plane rides. Look for even more close games, even potentially the 'bye' games we play at home.

I love it, as Cincinnati so driveable to so many opponents, including Louisville, Tennessee, NKU obviously.

Lots of schools we never play whose door may be open now. IU, UK, ND, etc.

Stacked schedule. Fill it out with bunch of buy games at this point. We have all the chances a team could ask for in OOC to prove we're a tourney team.

Georgia home and home. We were told for years how hard home and homes were to get. We were also told how hard it was to get in to big preseason tournaments. Itís almost like we were being lied to.

Mick loved winning 25-30 games a year playing North Carolina A&T.

Yep, and Some people love to tell us about all the games he won. I think people are starting to see that this program can be so much more than it was. This puts us on a national stage multiple times a year, a big recruit is going to want to play some of the best teams, rather than 8 cupcakes that we beat by 40. Mick loved talking about how tough his teams were, then was too scared to play anyone that we might lose to. Would rather lie about how hard it was to get in a big tournament and get home and homes.
