The Las Vegas Invitational didn't do us any favors by scheduling us with Citadel and Longwood. And I get Boyle adding the game with WNM to fill in and avoid a long Christmas break layoff. I can kind of see Idaho State, since it was the opener and getting our feet wet with the new season. But that still leaves games against CS Bakersfield, MD Eastern Shore, Alcorn State and TX Pan AM that are really hard to justify for our program. I know that Boyle pretty much inherited this schedule from Bzdelik. I have also heard Tad talk about playing a tougher schedule that's also more regional. But I look at this and can't help but think how much better our strength of schedule would be if we could have taken those 4 games I have the major problem with (all with RPIs in the 300s) and replaced them with these 4 regional teams that have losing D1 records and would have almost surely been CU wins: Rice (#174), Sam Houston State (#181), Northern Arizona, (#183), Fresno State (#198). Those are just examples.
