    What does everyone think?

    What's with the Friday night game at Villanova? Is that something new FS1 is trying out?

    Glad Creighton is on a Sunday afternoon. I'll try to hit that one.

    Six 6:30 weekday games and a 6pm weekday game. That is terrible. I like at Nova on a Friday night. A lot of good travel opportunities. At nova, prov, depaul, marquette, and creighton all on weekends and at Gtown and St John's on Thursday nights.

    I’m sure you could pull any group of five consecutive games and say “yikes”, but...

    2/16- @Providence
    2/20- @ Seton Hall
    2/24- vs Nova
    2/28- @ St John’s
    3/5- @ Butler

    Yikes.

    The travel schedule isn't terribly conducive for me. I see DePaul and Butler (which isn't an away game for me) and not much else. Don't love the early start times.

    Going to be tough to get to 20 wins through the regular season.

    9-9 in league play would mean going 11-2 in the non conference.

    I think the more likely scenario would be starting off a bit slower b/c of all the new guys and going 11-7 in league play.

    This team better really be prepared for playing on the road late in the season. If their record is bouncing on the bubble heading into February, I'm thinking it could be a rough landing with all those road games.

    I think we might be going to the Georgetown away game this season. Anybody been to a Georgtown away game before? Got any tips?

    Many times; it's always empty.
