Did we renew our Kansas series?
I don't think so, atleast yet. I think this makes it less likely. Although, we played Baylor/Okie State albeit those were one-off neutral site games (not really in the former case).
I'd really like to see the Buffs in an early season tourney this year. Christmas tourney, too. Those things prepare a team while also enhancing the SOS.
Aren't we in a christmas tourney?
They are headed to Hawaii for the Hawaiian Diamond Head Classic.
Thanks. I had completely forgotten.
Buffs will get a solid RPI bump out of that. Good competition.
Six of those eight teams are playing their best basketball in years. Only LMU and DePaul are mired in the cellar of their respective conferences. While not a blockbuster lineup, those top six are all in play for a 20-win season with some tournament to follow, and while I don't know how diverse all of their styles are, whatever the draw is we should get some good practice against a variety of sets.
Colorado offering $$$ for opening weekend Div I opponent (solid RPI) here in Boulder (Nov 14 preferred). Looking to start H&H with High Major here in Boulder also, dates include Nov18-19.
That website is kinda funny.
Arizona State is looking for someone to come before Christmas to the Valley of the Sun for a $$ Guarantee game on December 23rd and need it to be Top 200 RPI.
Why so High guys?
Good tournament but we've got to win our first game and get in the winner's side, or else we face a couple DePaul and Loyola Marymount games that won't do anything. Need a couple games against Wichita State and George Washington.
So tempted to start emailing some schools pretending to be other schools.
Can you get clarification from UNC on the HC gift?
We need two teams for the John Schmitt Classic that we are having on December 5 and 6. Teams will receive a good guarantee and Head Coaches gift. If you are interested please email or call Eric Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-351-2983. Thank You and we hope to hear from you soon!
Utah will play @BYU @Kansas Wichita State @UNLV
Quite the upgrade.
Any word sneaking out on our OOC schedule yet?
Any word on St. Katherine's, Evergreen State and Grand Canyon yet? I'd never seen a power program resort to playing an online school (Grand Canyon) until the Utes did so last year.
In all seriousness, I'm glad you're upgrading. It's bad enough we have the worst coverage, by far, of any power conference. Everyone except CU and Zona loading up on creampuffs only hurts our perception even further. Hopefully now that Utah is respectable again you can join the quality OOC club annually. Simply no excuse for what schools like ASU are doing.
Fantastic. Where the RPI is really manipulated is with the "bad" opponents being in that 100-250 range, though. I hope that the rest of the conference figures that out. Tad was forced to after his first year when the Buffs got left out of the Dance due to a bunch of crap to go along with the high quality wins on the resume.
