I personally would ask USA or if we end up playing a scrub team get an in state. Hopefully they will find us a descent mid-major. Scheduling is getting harder and harder. They know how to keep our kind out of the NCAAs. Just don't play us.

Love the Chattanooga game, my dad is a UTC alum. I'm in grad school part time at UTC so they've become my second team but I'll always pull for UAB over them. I'll try to make it down there for that one. Definitely want to do the Memphis game. I really like the idea of the BJCC doubleheader.

Ehsan said Hurtado could potentially play 1 through 4, which makes me think Ehsan plans on playing at a faster tempo next season, but it's probably just wishful thinking.

With the absence of a true center, we'll need to play at a faster pace on offense if we want to have an advantage on the floor.

Or we could just learn to shoot better, rebound, & not turn the ball over as much.

Maybe that could be accomplished by actually beating them ourselves.

I wonder why that never occurred to UAB? I better email HCRE and suggest that for next season since that concept had not crossed their mind.

Or maybe, just maybe Pearl wanted to play in the BJCC multiple years in a row for recruiting and UAB playing a double header with auburn is a great way to take some wind out of his recruiting sails. Especially if MTSU beats them and uab wins as well. Would love to see UABs crowd hang around and root against Auburn and pull for their conference mates.

Good. Let Pearl send the message that's it's better to play in the state's urban and media center than off some rural exit on I-85.

So, do you want to play in Birmingham once a year where your friends can see you, or 18 times a year?

Like all things it life, it is all a matter of perspective and spin.

Unless something has just changed Chattanooga is not listed as one of the participants in the Cayman Islands Classic.
