Oh I shouldn’t blame UAB? An athletic department that hasnt given a 01-scout about basketball since Anderson left? Say what we want about the trustees and football, but basketball is on us. Murray State, FGCU, Georgia State, Little Rock, MTSU have done just fine with working around the same circumstances in regards to making the tournament.

So we should just keep doing the same things hoping for better results?

Arkansas Monticello - Dec 29th

Excellent. Same day as Camillia bowl again. Also I would have expected at least one buy game for UAB.

Of course you should blame UAB. Its what defines you as a UAB fan

I would too. Swap out the game with UNA or Arkansas Monticello and hit the road. Get some experience for the young guys against a good team while picking up some extra cash.

Although this is just the home schedule so hopefully there's a meaningful road game in the schedule other than the Advocare tournament.

That's pretty much the whole schedule. Numbers-wise there is room for only one more (road?) game.

Wonder what direction they're thinking. If they go with a buy game then this looks like a pretty good schedule. Great Thanksgiving tournament, basically home vs. Auburn, home vs. Mercer, at Memphis, at hopefully a school with name recognition.

11/01 Morehouse College (exhibition)
11/06 Mercer (154)
11/14 New Orleans (266)
11/18 West Alabama (N/A)
11/22 vs. Florida State (27)
11/23 vs. Charleston (115) or LSU (66)
11/25 vs. Cansius (131), Memphis (161), Oklahoma State (59) or Villanova (1)
12/01 (or 12/08) at Memphis (161)
12/04 North Alabama (352?)
12/15 Auburn (23)
12/18 Alcorn State (336)
12/21 Troy (177)
12/29 Arkansas-Monticello (N/A)

Added in last year's KenPom ratings for the OOC opponets.

RE: 2018-19 Men's Basketball Schedule (Conf. portion complete)
What record would it take for UAB to get an at-large bid with this schedule?
1) 3 loses and UAB is a lock for an at-large bid. (top 15 in polls. RPI not a factor)
2) 4 loses puts UAB on bubble. (the TPA games and reaching tournament final determine fate).
3) 5 loses and UAB is NIT bound.

So while I don't like the home schedule, maybe it has some built in advantages. I think all of C-USA is in this same boat. Win one or two high profile games in preseason. Then run the table at home and in the conference regular season if you want an at large bid.

3 losses bubble 4 out. We all know what we have to do until we get in a better league. The league is better than the pundits think and has deserved two for some time but let’s not kid ourselves.

4 losses you are on the NIT bubble. 5 out of that.

No kidding. ESPN's BPI Top 100 just came out. Only CUSA teams listed are WKU at 66 and Marshall at 76. Both schools should be much higher.

Any index that ESPN made up is basically worthless. No one uses it, besides talking heads to form their hypotheses. The %chance to win of their index is especially humorous.
