2012-2013 Hoops Schedule

We've all talked ad nausea about how we think the Big East is going to spite us (and Pitt) next year in regards to the football schedule. But we haven't mentioned the potential basketball schedule. For us, attendance wise, hoops is our money maker. The fans come out in droves. We represent well and when ESPN (or CBS) shows the dome filled with 30K + fans, it's a huge recruiting tool.

My question to you, fellow Nunesers, what's to stop the Big East schedule gods from giving us a less than favorable hoops schedule as well?

Here is one example of how I see us being screwed a bit. First, a note on the Home and Homes. Since West Virginia is out, there would be four H-H match-ups next year instead of three., assuming the Big East sticks with 18 conference games.

Home Away

Providence H-H Providence

South Florida H-H South Florida

DePaul H-H DePaul

Pittsburgh H-H Pittsburgh

St John's Georgetown

Rutgers Villanova

Seton Hall UConn

Cincinnati Notre Dame

Marquette Louisiville

Obviously, this is an extreme schedule, but it is certainly feasible. We would get home and homes with the 3 "Bottom Feeders" (I understand USF is having a great season, but really....) plus fellow defector Pitt. All 3 NYC area schools would come to us, so we wouldn't be able to have an appearance in the NYC area. Road games at GTown, Nova, UConn, ND and Louisville - all games that could garner a 30K + attendance mark. And home games with Cincy and Marquette - Would anyone really get up for those games?

Now again, this is an extreme schedule. But would any of you be shocked if something similar to this is released next summer? I sure has hell wouldn't.
