Eh. I think the nonconference schedule is strong enough where they could lose 3 and still get a high seed depending on their league performance. Remember they lost 2 in 2018 and wound up a 2 seed. This is a better non-league schedule with more opportunities to slip up (and not hurt your metrics in doing so). The best thing about college basketball is inflated records don't get overvalued much. It really does matter who play and how you play to a very large degree.

I am less confident in the league being strong enough but concerned there are too many decent teams that can beat you. I am not sold on Memphis being top 25 good, they should good but not great. I doubt Houston is protected seed good again. There are about five others that could be good enough to make the post season if things break the right way.

Anyway, I don’t see a four seed or better with three non-conference losses. That would basically require 17-1 or better in league play. Basically have to beat Tennessee and at least one other big time opponent while sweeping the mid-majors.

A lot of decent teams isn't bad. College basketball isn't just about tallying losses. Get a lot of quality (q1/q2) wins, have solid predictive metrics and UC will get a good seed.

I wonder if maybe the lower-tier buy games just don't make a lot of money for us. Otherwise, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to not fill out the full 13 games since the schedule is strong overall. I'm a UC basketball junkie and will gladly take another game to watch and enjoy. Still plenty happy with the schedule though.

Any early predictions on our non-conference record? With a new staff/system and a lot of new faces, I think 10-2 would be tremendous, but 9-3 is a more realistic goal.
