I was looking at the preseason tournament pages and I noticed we're not in any of the preseason tournaments next year.
This actually sounds pretty serious to me, considering we haven't faced a team from a BCS conference in either of the last two NCAA tournaments, and I know Jimmy is reluctant to schedule big OOC games (why?), especially if they involve going on the road.
As far as I can tell the only game we're gonna have OOC next year is in the SEC-Big East Challenge. I REALLY would like to get Kentucky in that matchup, but do you know if we have any other plans? We will have to go to NC State at some point; whether or not it's next year I don't know. But I don't want to play any more than seven so-called "cupcake" games; at least six of our OOC games need to be at the very least against decent mid-majors, some of them should be against BCS teams.
What do you think?
