The OOC schedule was set a year or two ago. Get with the program! Some of the pre-conference tournaments are set within the last 6 months, but most OOC games are set before the coaching change and recruiting changes that followed were made. You should know that.

Have you all seen the new PAC12 OOC requirements?

The approved new non-conference scheduling standards include the following elements:

(i) a non-Conference five-year trailing average of opponents’ NET ranking must be 175 or less,

(ii) no participation in road buy games,

(iii) no regular season games against non-Division I opponents and

(iv) no road games versus a non-conference opponent with a five-year trailing average of 200 NET.

It's a step in the right direction and maybe the AAC should consider following some of it if not all of it.

Similar to this year's baseball schedule, it was probably designed by Dannen to help Dunleavy get his leg over a .500 record--never expecting the 2018/2019 season meltdown. I don't mind a weak schedule next year--helps Hunter get momentum building.

Who , other than the previously announced tournament teams , are on our schedule ?

Hope the lack of news does not mean a disappointing schedule .

.it probably will be a lame schedule, as we were still trying to prop up the Dunleavy Disaster when it was set up.

I like that we have new terminology- 5 year trailing average. This is to combat the old: “well you never know how good a team will be” and “the schedule is set years in advance”.

Net 200 on the road and 175 at home isnt exactly brutal either. I would love for us to put something like this in place.
