This had NOTHING to do with Tyndall or teams not wanting to play USM bc they are scared of their RPI dropping. Come on people! This has to do with Sadler being pathetic and losing to SWAC schools by 20 points, so he has to drop down and play schools he feels he has a better chance to beat in order to save his job.

After listening to you guys, this is the first year under SADler that "we" are suppose to have some decent talent. I would imagine (even after Saddys terrible track record), that he should be able to beat Rust, Blue Mountain, the SWAC schools and maybe a few others. I'm pulling for him to win. However, if he fouls this up and loses to some of those schools, I hope you people will finally stop defending him. Heck, there were people that stuck up for EJ through 8-9 games - IDIOTS! Then he's fired and you woulda thought his "defenders" were preaching how bad his hire was from the beginning. I have a feeling the same will happen with Sadler. Once he's let go / not retained, people will jump on the bandwagon with his suckage.


tell me boy genius, why would you want to schedule us h/h in hoops right now.....

please, old man genius, who said anything about a h/h? besides, is USM the only team in the country that wants some cupcake, warmup games? id imagine there is a team or two somewhere in America that wouldn't mind beating up on Sadler early in the season to get their team ready....other than Blue Mountain, Rust and the SWAC that is. But that's fine...we seem to always play some pretty crappy schools in basketball over the years (we would just usually beat them before the Sadler era) and we do play FSU and Michigan

But an away game at Alabama A&M?! Come on Sadler! Im just saying Sadler would like an easy a schedule as possible, in hopes of generating a better record for himself.....not bc he cant find another team to play. Think about it.

Then again, last year we went to OT or double OT vs them so it's not a guaranteed win. And he in all likelihood scheduled the Michigan and FSU games to pay for the trip this week in the Bahamas.

finally, someone else that "gets it".

We've typically played 3-4 non-D1 games since I've been following USM athletics (mid 2000s). This isn't really a new thing. Go look at some of Eustachy's schedules. That being said, I agree in that I'd rather do H/Hs with local (beatable) D1 schools like UNO, ULL, Samford, SELA, etc.

As for playing at AAMU, yeah, it's embarrassing. But from what I understand, this is a 2-1 deal so we don't have to pay them $$ for a single guarantee game in Hattiesburg.

Doesn't matter. Whole season comes down to 3-4 days in Frisco. Very, very tough to get an at-large bid in this league. MTSU won 30 games last year, beat Vandy and Ole Miss OOC, and got a #12 seed after running through the CUSA Tourney.


12 seed is actually a pretty favorable draw. A fairly easy path to Sweet Sixteen.

Yes, but he's 1-1 against William Carey. Plus, he only gave up 96 points to Tugaloo last year.

It's a New Orleans NAIA (maybe DIII?).. so I'll let this one slide. I don't like it, but I'll let it slide.

@ Michigan

Blue Mountain (part of Pentagon Showcase series)
@ Sanford Pentagon Showcase @ Sioux Falls, SD **games vs South Dakota, Youngstown St, Northern Colorado**

Who the heck is Blue Mountain? I guess it was part of a package with the Pentagon Showcase package? I Guess the other games might help make up for it.

@ South Alabama
Rust

WHO???? What the hell is a Rust?

Troy
@ Alabama A&M

Hell, I get the 2-1 thing if that's what it took.. but .. REALLY?

William Carey

This is probably the only NAIA game I actually don't mind being on the schedule. Again, one NAIA game vs. a nearby school I can live with.

@ Florida St
vs Mississippi St (played in Jackson, MS)

Quote:"This will be one of the most challenging schedules we've had since I've been here, both in and out of conference play," Sadler said.

I really hope this was a sarcastic quote just made up out of thin air...
I guess my question is it Sadler getting these games scheduled or our Athletic Director?
