    You may not believe it but I know it to be true.

    Of course its true.

    And if it is true, I guarantee you there are other quality schools in the same boat.

    We just need to find them.

    The fact that the NCAA has corrupted the NIT is a crying shame.
    The NCAA owns the NIT, so that explains a lot.

    Teams to call for future games:

    Saint Mary
    Marquette
    New Mexico State
    Stephen f Austin


    There are a lot others. I have to believe some would do home and home

    The committee is clearly looking at OOC road wins and losses as a metric to differentiate teams in selection model. I'm curious if more teams will start easing up on this to get better road games. Of course, its possible that many teams don't look at us as a good road game with our past SOS and RPI but maybe after this year, there may be some better opportunities?

    We are wasting time debating this. Marlin and staff know what is at stake with scheduling. They aren't stupid. The fact of the matter is that teams do not want to play a game in which there is more to lose than to gain. Ironically, there is nothing to gain because people don't want to schedule. It's an endless cycle.

    For the people advocating for 3 for 1s, that isn't almost a decent deal. Playing on the road is hard enough.

    The state of NCAA basketball is not changing. It won't change until a mid major finds some novel way to beat the system, and then it'll change to make it look more fair (but in practice, will favor the power conferences).

    The Gonzagas and Boise States started out just like us. They played a lot of road games and started winning before they could get teams to visit their campus. If we have to play road games to schedule schools, play them. But, we have to beat them. Make a name for ourselves, then schools will want to play us. Right now, we are just a mid-level Sun Belt school that nobody wants to play. Things will not change until we change.

    They both are going to play. How much and how effective are the real questions

    Agreed. Some of these schools mentioned won't even play us, so a 2/3 for 1 is out of the question. Let's find as many SEC, Big12, or ACC teams who will play us at there place. Let's recruit kids who want to play that kind of schedule. If it means playing only 2-3 OOC home games, so be it. This strategy is fraught with disaster, but it is the only way to get out of our current situation.

    Gonzaga still has trouble scheduling Big name teams at home. They normally have to travel to exempt tournaments. Creighton played there this year and San Diego state last year

    Obviously those are financial comprises with the additional pressure to have enough home games for the players to get to class. We do; however _____ about the non Division I schools.

    First of all, D2 games should be ended immediately.

    Do as many 1 for 1's with UH, Rice, Tech, Tulane and USM that you can.

    There should be at least 3 Power Conference games every year.

    We should be in as many in-season tournaments as possible.

    After that, any non-conference games scheduled must be with historical Top 150 RPI programs.

    Don't care 1 iota how many non-conference home games we have. How many home games we have in the conference Tourney? How many home games we have in the NCAA Tourney? Nobody pays attention to basketball around here until football season is over in January anyway. By then, we're in conference schedule. Non conference home games are way, way overrated.


    It's like you said and Houston said.

    Being stuck with D2 games, low RPI games, low RPI conference games and perpetual 15 seeds in the Tourney IS NOT ACCEPTABLE for this basketball program and this fanbase.

    With the exception of Tech, none of the other schools will do that. Some won't even play us from what I understand.
