    The games are Fort Lewis on 11-11 and New Orleans on 12-28. They aren't really going to do much for our SOS I think. They are both DII schools. Fort Lewis is in the RMAC and they went 24-8 last year. New Orleans is going to be independent this year as it's in the middle of a transition from DI to DIII. It's a pretty complicated story actually but they went 16-6 last year. Both should be wins and Fort Lewis will hopefully be a good way to get the kinks out before Puerto Rico.

    Games won't factor into RPI at all, but they will go on the record as wins. Good, strategic additions IMO.

    I think it should end up in that 80-100 range with the conference slate getting us around 50 or 60.

    Glad we've got the Ft. Lewis game to get some final preparation in for Wichita State. That's going to be a tough tournament with everyone scrapping for those precious OOC wins that are so valuable later on.

    I believe this is the first year New Orleans is DII. They had been in the Sun Belt

    if that comes true, then that's OK for this year. i'll concede that for this young team that loses a lot from last season....straight up wins is key. better to win 16-17 and final rpi a little higher than win 14 and be in the 30's. it's a move in the right direction. in the future, i'd much rather see that final number between 30-40. we can debate the merits of the rpi and whether or not the NCAA (says) whether or not they use/don't use it....but, you need to take it off the board as a reason you get left out of the Dance.

    what was the name of the athletic big man that played for the Nuggets who went to UNO? not Keon Clark, but same kind of player and about the same time period. Tim Floyd was his coach at UNO.

    According to a posting by someone from New Orleans on the WBB scheduliing board (where schools post their needs/wants for games to complete their schedules) New Orleans is still a D1 counter for this season as they transition to D2

    That could work out for us if NO can repeat last year's record.
