I was thinking today about our schedule for next season, specifically our potenital opponent in next season's Big 10/ACC Challenge. So I decided to do a little speculating on it.
First, I'm going with the assumption that teams will no be on the road or at home in consecutive years. That leaves the following Big 10 teams available:
- Penn State
- Rutgers (New Member)
- Maryland (Was an ACC Road team last year)
So, of the 7 remaining teams, which do you think we will end up playing? I'm thinking Michigan or Wisconsin - leaning toward Michigan.
(Normally the last place team from the previous year would be left out, so I'm assuming we are in the challenge, but the wild card is if somehow we aren't playing in the challenge. But I would guess the only way we aren't in it is if we request to stay out - and the only way I could see that happening is if we got a series with Georgetown set up, and with all the top games on the schedule already between the 2K Classic, St John's and Villanova, the school didn't want another top matchup)
