    We got lucky with drawing UCLA and Washington only once.

    Also, I love how the men's and women's schedules mirror each other. That makes so much sense. Much easier for fans to follow.

    P.S. Is it a new thing on cubuffs.com that we can download schedules straight to Outlook or iCal? I'll definitely start doing that and especially have my wife do it once the full schedules and times are set. I'm sick of her scheduling things on game days without thinking to check first.

    I've been thinking about going to that Arizona 2-game swing in February. Seems like a nice time of year to head off to Arizona.

    On the men's side, we've also got the following that we know about:

    Puerto Rico Tip-Off

    Thursday, Friday and Sunday, Nov. 17, 18 & 20, at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico, in the cosmopolitan Hato Rey district of San Juan. Field includes: Colorado, Alabama, Iona, Maryland, Purdue, Temple, Wichita State and 1 team to be determined. Everyone gets 3 games.

    Air Force (away)

    This is a 2-year series that will be at AFA's Clune Arena in 2011-12 and be at the Keg in 2012-13. They've committed to another 2-year series beyond this one, but it's not sure whether they'll take a year off after the first series or go straight into the second. It sounds like the AFA reps would like this to be an annual thing. CU and AFA have met 20 times starting in 1958 (most recently in 2007-08), with the Buffs holding a 17-3 edge all-time.

    Wyoming (home)

    The Wyoming-Colorado series began in 1908 and saw 73 meetings (WYO leads 39-34). We haven't played since the 2007-08 because Bzdelik didn't want his top assistant, McClain, to have to go against the kids he recruited at Wyoming. This series was signed as a 4-year commitment, alternating home and home through the 2014-15 season. Given the history, it's likely this will continue beyond that.

    Colorado State (away)

    The 2011-12 game will be at CSU's Moby arena. I couldn't find a link to the contract on this series, but it's year-to-year and it's an almost certain bet that it will continue to be played every season. In the 120 meetings wit CSU since 1906, the Buffs hold a commanding 87-33 series lead.

    Georgia (home)

    This is the return game in the home-and-home series between the Buffs and Dawgs for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. This should be an interesting early season matchup, with both programs replacing almost all of their 2010 offensive firepower.

    ***************

    Considering that we have 18 conference games in the Pac-12, I wouldn't expect more than 12 or 13 non-conference games. This list means we have 7 that we know about. Could be more that are scheduled as the completion of old contracts (i.e., the Harvard roadie was a return trip from a 2007 game), could be that the Big 12 / Pac-12 hardcourt series will continue or maybe a different conference challenge, and it could be that there is something new scheduled that hasn't been reported. But the best I can figure is that we have 5 or 6 open slots remaining on the schedule.

    They've been doing it for at least 2 years. There was a problem with this year's file though when I downloaded it. For an entire year, it had us playing at Texas Tech from midnight to 12:30 am every day. Other than that, it was great though.

    They did it a few years back too, around the 2004 timeframe. I remember using it when I was in college. It always was kinda spotty, and had weird inputs for times some of the times. What they need to do is make it interactive, like google calendar for download, then when the TBD times come out, or a game time changes it will automatically change in your calendar.

    The first 9 or 10 were, but after that it got a little repetitive.

    Amen! It doesn't get better with time (50 years now) but this might help the conflict next season.

    It is not as uncommon as you think. They have done it before, only difference it was OOC games before, last times I remember were somewhere around 03 and 05. There are typically plenty of people watching BBall on TV, so we should get some good coverage if its nationally televised.

    FIFY. And CU is known to get horrible crowds over the holidays... This changed a little bit this year so hopefully CU continues to build their fan base so that even when the students are not around, we can come close to filling CEC.

    I doubt the Pac 12/Big Texas and the Nine Dwarfs Hardwood Challenge will continue. If it does however, I hope CU draws Kansas State and beats their ass again.

    Yes they get pretty bad attendance over the holidays, but it wasnt from being on NYE, the same attendance would have been for any day around then. Its mostly due to students being out of school and aweful OOC games. Even back then when Kansas would come the first week or two in January there would be a pretty crappy CU crowd.

    We definetly could do a Pac-12 vs SEC classic...12 teams from each conference.

    Or Big 10. I think that's more likely, given the historical relationship between the conferences.

    might be difficult to do, since they already have a gig with the big least, iirc.

    The ACC-Big 10 challenge has been going on for over ten years, it was really the first interconference challenge thing.

    Doesn't the ACC also do one with the Big East?

    I'm not so sure that 1 is the limit here.

    SEC plays four games a year with Big East
    ACC/Big 10 is the Showcase for this type of setup
    It is still possible to do the Pac 12/Big Texas challenge, with the Pac 12 now having the 2 teams that would not participate

    Assistant coach Jean Prioleau has tweeted/****ted/twitted the following about our schedule for next year:

    So here's hoping we avoid the horrible scheduling from last year and know some news soon. Of course, it appears that Prioleau has bigger things on his mind right now.

    He's got to be able to walk, golf and chew gum. :lol:

    Seriously, though, we definitely need a solid RPI schedule. It doesn't look to me like the Pac-12 this year is going to deliver the overall RPI boost from the conference season that the Big 12 did... and even that wasn't enough to overcome an embarrassing non-con last year (as we all know too well :stillpissed:).

    I realize we're going to get some bad teams in the Foam Dome, but let's make them just "crappy" teams instead of "holy crap these guys are a division 1 team?!?" teams like we had last year. I'd selfishly love to see one "big name" team at home too.

    January 9th. My guess is the crowds will get better each of the three games with the game against Wazzu being close to full.

    be interesting to see how the "travel partners" thing develops a rhythm with the "2 at home, 2 away....2 at home, 2 away" format dominating the league schedule. basically play for a split on the road, and sweep at home. sort of like baseball series homestands v. road trips or holding serves v. service breaks in tennis.

    let's say the Buffs are in the top half of the league and lose to a highly ranked U of A team at home (never happen in real life)...and then the pressure is on to win the next homie against ASU before heading out on the road, say, to UCLA and then USC. that is absolutely a must win. on the other hand, win the first one on the 2 game road trip and play loose on the #2.

    Team X is leading the conference by a game but plays the last two on the road.

    Part of the reason that we need an interesting non-conference home schedule this year (and get off to a better-than-expected start). The non-student population showed that it would rally and deliver a great crowd during the NIT, so we need to keep that growing.

    I'm bumping in the hopes that someone -- anyone -- has heard anythign about the non-conference schedule for next year. If I remember correctly, they're going to start taking deposits on season tickets soon. It'd be nice if they had a non-conf schedule to announce at that time as well.
