O/T WMU is playing a lot of tough teams, on the road, and cupcakes at home. Western has 4 OOC games, 3 of which are non-D-I.

I'm sounding like broken record but non-D-I MBB games for MI MAC schools is like "love and marriage..." (I forgot the rest of the lyrics).

With Luka S., Binelli (hope he’s fully healthy), and Okongo not joining the team till next semester, that’s when EMU’s internal competition should heat-up, and team will have more time to get to gel. Might take some time sort out some starters and rotation.


Believe EMU may still have option to add two transfers or freshmen recruits, as Binelli, Okongo, and Spottsville, don’t count against the 13-scholarship players allowed to be on the roster.

Posted under wrong thread.

If we are going to fill out the roster we better be doing it quickly. We currently have 13 including. 3 walk ons.

O/T (Oakland): "Show me the money"

https://twitter.com/TonyPaul1984/status/...56675?s=20

And once again, another mid-major which will be 'road warriors' all season long unless they get home games out of that Gulf Coast Showcase.

https://twitter.com/OaklandMBB/status/14...94789?s=20

(By the way, if I sound like a broken record, it is because I am one. I posted like this under Murphy. Still repeating the same refrain be it other MAC schools or Oakland or whomever).

These local mid-major home games schedules look pretty weak so far.

Not particularly strong, but not weak either.

Two D-II games plus a couple D-I mid-majors.

Bart Torvik has EMU playing non-conference game against Indiana University on Nov.9th. May be season’s opening game. Also, Valpo. Rumor is that EMU will also play Michigan State.

only 1 D2 opponent, exhibitions against a couple D2 teams.

Toledo's home schedule isn't spectacular but about as good as as anyone in the MAC most likely
Bradley
Marshall
Detroit
NW Ohio (D2)

also the road game at Richmond is a home n home, so next year the Rockets get a strong A10 program at home along w return games from Valpo and Oakland which is a good start on the 22-23 home sched

RE: UNOFFICIAL 2021/2 MBB Schedule Discussion Thread
Borrowing from Pono:

There is an article in The Blade today about the difficulty of non-conference scheduling for UT men's basketball. The link is below, but a few interesting things:

-UT contacted 61 power conference and mid major schools about scheduling a home and home or 2 for 1. Richmond was the only school that agreed to a deal.

-TK contacted 3 coaches in the Midwest that he has friendly relations with about a 2 for 1. None of them even responded.

-A coach of a top 50 program responded to TK's inquiry about a home and home with this: "Have you lost your [expletive] mind?"

Awful OOC home schedule. TWO games, both in December.
