I'm not smart enough to know that. But I think waterhead has mentioned how this could be a good thing later in the year since obviously none of our elimination games will be at home. Our splits have been troubling over the years.

I've tried to look at some numbers but it's stumped me. I just can't see how it couldn't have a negative impact especially for the older kids who have played all their games at another venue. If nothing else it has to mess with their game day habits. I really can't see how it helps.

Saw a graphic while watching Houston and Temple. it was illustrating what Houston had to do to play their homes games in a arena off campus.

Leave early for the bus ride to arena for walk through

Return to campus to go over counting report.

Return to arena for shoot around

Wait for game to be played

Back up and load bus for ride back to campus.

This may not be exact but it is close to what hey have to go through.

Has to impact our home advantage.

Last year ucís offense finished at 34th and this year weíre at 47th with only 4 games against good teams.


We are playing a full 2 seconds faster on offense (a huge job to be honest) however we havenít learned how to be efficient at that speed. Our offense this season is better every nearly every way except one crucial one: TO%.

If we can get our TO% closer to 16% we will have a very good and most likely top 25 offense
I would definitely believe that, defensive rhythm is much easier to learn than offensive. So this early in the year I totally expected us to have some hiccups. We will only fix those as we continue the season. Glad to see the offense moving much quicker, at least in certain situations. I like the way we actually push the ball when we should, even if it hasn't always turned into buckets it's better than not being aggressive

Not too much.

UC stays in a hotel the night before every home game. They are never on campus during home games.

I asked coach rehfedt why they did this on Twitter and itís to get the same exact routine home or away before games and also helps regulate the players sleep and curfew before game days. . We did this last year too

How did everyone do?

I had 27-4 with losses at Xavier, at UCLA, at Wichita, and one other random one.

I had the losses kind of mixed up. But not bad overall.

i didn't miss a game.



of course i didn't do any predictions either. never do predictions, never do polls. don't put that pressure on me! i'd blame myself for all the losses.

I admittedly did much worse however I also did not expect so many teams in our league to have so many injuries and for temple to suck so much

yeah there are a few that maybe could have been different if not for injuries. @smu would have been a tough one. can't predict all those injuries.
