At the end of the day I'll take a win against a terrible opponent at home than get body slammed on the road against Duke.
We I think you need the road test in the ooc so that way you don't drop a duece on the road in WAC play. The ooc games should be preparing you for league play and I don't really feel like thus does.

So what are the games at Louisville and at Illinois right before conference play begins considered? The high profile road WAC games are both closer towards the end of the year, being NMSU and Bakersfield. Yes, you can't sleepwalk against anybody in the WAC because it's sports and sports can be unpredictable.

It feels like a big ten type of OOC to me.. but they have the luxury of having big ten conference games to help their sos. It sorta takes away any chance of an at-large bid, no matter how small that chance was

WAC is not an at-large conference. Not now, and not for a long time. SOS really doesn't mean much.

Also getting an at large bid is hard to impossible now. The selection committee is in favor of giving bids to P5 or Big East teams, no matter how ****** they are.

Yup - build an OOC conference with getting team ready for conference play, and respectable enough that you can work towards a 12-14 seed.

Well of course! We need to make room for the 9th place team in the ACC!

Yeah it for sure could have been better, especially with the scheduling that we had last year

Me either. I am pretty disappointed in this schedule going into Year 5.
