Let's chat about it...
- Syracuse doesn't leave the Continental United States the entire season. Absolutely pathetic.
- Four out of the five months, Syracuse plays multiple quality teams. All in all, a very solid and tough schedule (if you ask me).
- January is sneaky-tough. Right off the bat, we play four games in ten days (12/31 - 1/9), two of which are on the road. Then we get a Villanova doubler, away at Louisville and then home against pesky Cincinnati. Can't take anything for granted there.
- February is its usual brutal self. Looking forward to seeing Notre Dame in the Dome for a little payback. At UConn and At Seton Hall are both going to be tough, they always step it up when we're in
their buildingour building. And given the circumstances this season, I expect every Big East road game to be as hostile as ever. Georgetown in the Dome followed by a road game at Marquette two days later is brutal.
- March, as usual, packs a bunch. What is it with playing DePaul in March? I feel like they always schedule us to play them in March...so weird. But its gonna be a nice break in between a Louisville and Georgetown two-fer.
- Lots of TV as expected.
1719 national appearances scheduled right now, and that doesn't include whatever the Gotham Classic turns out to be andany Big East Network games that get picked up.
31 games. Based on what you know (and what you don't know), whatcha think?
