RE: 20-21 BBall schedule


considering Brannen's philosophy for scheduling, this add seems a bit weird. Without looking at their roster, I wonder if they're returning a bunch of upperclassmen and Brannen expects them to be far better. Maybe he's looking for an easy first game before the gauntlet.

There are A LOT of tough games in our OOC at the moment...this is probably the one reprieve he is giving his team, and there likely are a lot of people not writing out game contracts for a season that may not happen.

My guess is that the UofL game was added late and there is a desire to get a game under their belt before the Cards come to town. At this point, there are likely few options of teams.

RE: 20-21 BBall schedule
With the way Brannen already stacked the schedule, I wasn't expecting any quality opponents for the last 3. I'm fine with this. We should fill out the remaining 3 on the schedule with the cheapest buy games we can find given the current economic climate for college athletics. As much as I'm all for getting the best buy games, it's not worth going further into the red to buy a game against a 200 RPI vs a 300 when the rest of the strength of schedule is already really good.

I have my doubts there will be a non-conference BB schedule. The freak out will not wind down enough until well after the first Tuesday in November.
