This is correct, I know Andrei from Paint Touches mentioned it and his source is bulletproof on this. Personally, I'm hoping this means we end up with a long-term ND series alternating with Wisconsin, but that might just be wishful thinking.

I think it might mean we don't have a road gavitt game, and the team wants one road game.

I talked to Andrei after he got that info and I don't think that's the case. Sounds like they are preparing like they will have a Gavitt. As far as the contract goes, there are two more years on the original deal (extended one year since 2020 was cancelled). That leaves 16 games to fill. Butler, Georgetown, Villanova, and Xavier have to be in both editions (8 games) while Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall, and St. John's each need at least one more appearance (4 games). I expect those 8 teams will all be in the games this year to make sure the contract is met. Then in 2023, they can have the first four and any four they choose after that.

On the Big 10 side, Michigan State is the only team who should be required to play each of the next two years (2 games). Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Northwestern, Penn State, and Purdue all need one more appearance (6 games). If all of those appear this year, it would mean only Michigan State has to play in 2023.

The US has missed one World Cup in the past 32 years. And I feel completely confident, with absolutely zero doubt, saying the US will not miss another World Cup in my lifetime.

Unless of course we are held out for human rights abuses, like Russia this year. Which I suppose is becoming more likely by the year. But in terms of competitive exclusion, it will never happen again.

Even beyond, the expansion to 48 guarantees 6 CONCACAF spots in the Final. Just qualifying for the Hex would've seen them safe in 2018 and as a bonus they would've qualified in a 48-team field all the way back in 1986 based on CONCACAF Championship standings from 1985.

In addition, future qualification will likely allow us to avoid Mexico completely. It's never going to be a competitive problem again.

Which is hella lame. I want US in every World Cup. But not if we suck regionally.

Looks like I’ll be wicked hammered for the Baylor game. US Iran, followed up by a match up with a potential top 5 team

Yep - I'll be wildly disappointed/angry to not qualify after 2026. It'll be a cake walk.

Still disappointing to not qualify in 18, but it happens.

We weren't held out for vietnam. We weren't held out for kidnaping and Abu Ghraib torture that started after 2002. Unless the US is starting a land war in Europe within the next 50 years. I think we wont be excluded for human rights abuses.

You could argue for wire tapping, but 1. it doesn't feel like people are as worked up with it as they should be and 2. The supreme court is about to "correctly" affirm that there are no privacy protections in their abortion case later this summer.

(i say correctly because technically we don't have privacy rights, pnumbras are BS, no matter how Pro Choice i am. I think congress needs to actually pass a privacy amendment.)

Isn't part of the problem of playing basketball games at Miller Park that they can only heat the stadium up like 15 degrees higher than the outside temperature?  I don't know the exact numbers, but going to baseball games in April or September at Miller Park was still pretty cold, even with everything closed up.

There are almost 60,000 students alone between the 2 universities. Not to mention the easy access for the smaller Marquette fanbase. I think it'd be an easy sell to fans. Hard sell for the Universities.

Post by: Dickthedribbler on May 19, 2022, 12:51:55 PM
When Miller Park was built they talked about stuff like this. If I recall, and it's been 25 years, from an engineering standpoint, with the roof closed they can only heat the place to about 25  degrees higher than the outside air temperature. So if they try and pull this off, it would have to be an early November game and it would almost have to ba day game.

On November 11 in Wisconsin, there are days and nights when the outside temperature doesn't get over 20 degrees, so roughly 45 inside. Can't do it, IMO.

I think after a couple of years, it will be hard to fill the place yes.  The novelty will wear off and people will realize its easier to watch the game at home on television.

Were you one of the guys back in about 2007, when there was all sorts of bitching and moaning about re-starting the UWM series at the Bradley Center, who assured everyone that people in Milwaukee would line up for days ahead of time, around the corner and down the block to buy tickets to those games.

If they're going to all the trouble and expense of in effect retro-fitting American Family Field for one day of college basketball, you would think they would schedule a doubleheader with Marquette playing someone in the other game. How about a Veterans Day Friday tripleheader with UWM playing someone at 3:00 pm; Wisconsin playing K-State at 5:30 pm; and Marquette hosting someone at 8:00 pm.

I mean if you're going to try and pull this off, you might as well go big.

I talked to someone near their program 12 months ago. They thought they would land a top 100 recruit this year. I am not kidding.

Maybe he got the reverse Ochai Agbaji treatment. Before committing to Kansas, Agbaji was ranked #308 in the 247 Composite. After he committed, he shot up to #122. Perhaps by not committing to Kansas, they dropped him from #99 to outside the top-200. Gotta take that KU offer when it's there, I guess.

Explains why Ners went from top-10 to out of the top 10,000.

That dunk got him an offer from KU, but then he thought he could do better ... and ended up getting schooled at Helfaer!

Aren’t the ratings less relevant with NET? Even the 98 would be a Q3 win since it would be a home game.

They are less relevant. SOS comes into play only if things are really tight between two teams. Beat them by 40 and it's all good. It really only makes a difference if it's a Q2/Q3 game. But I'd much rather get the potential Q2 game than the near certain Q4.

There are definitely more low quality buy games on the schedule than I personally care for. I’m fine with these but they are too important from a metrics standpoint to use as “teaching” games. MU needs to step on the throat and win them all by 30+ if at all possible. Our lack of dominance in buy games has almost come back to cost us recently as dumb as that is.

As far as the Purdue game is concerned, it’s a joke from the perspective of the challenge. Less than zero effort was put into it making the matchups. However, Purdue is a great non-con opponent and it will be a good experience for the team to play at Mackey Arena. I’m very excited for that game already.

True, but as long as we beat them by an appropriate amount we won't get dinged on our tournament metrics. For me, watching a 20 point drubbing of Illinois State isn't substantially more enjoyable than watching a 30 point drubbing of LIU.

Yeah, I guess that’s not bad at all. I thought there was more. I was checking the old schedules and saw in 2006-2007 MU had 11 buy games which also does not count a road game at Valpo. That is a brutal schedule.

Weve played them twice since the 70s.

Is it great that the Gavitt has put us with Purdue 3 times since 2017 rather than playing different teams each time? No, not most ideal.

But better than being the Gophers who in the ACC and Gavitt routine get the same bottom dwellers.

At least we get quality opponents consistently.

That's my personal expectation. With Bucky, ND, Purdue, and Baylor on the schedule, I don't see another home-and-home nor marquee neutral site game. But as the buy games are pretty soft, I'm hoping for at least one higher quality buy game. Historically, that was the trend under Wojo, and Shaka usually brought in multiple top-200 buy game opponents at Texas.

Not really.  Historically we were usually good for about one blowout loss to a high major per year under Wojo (Iowa, I4, Maryland etc.), but the only two "buy" games we ever lost under him were Omaha in the third game of his career, and Belmont, which historically is one of the better "buy" games available.  Wojo's problem was that his record in March was very subpar, he was usually fine for most of Nov-Dec.

Not really.  Historically we were usually good for about one blowout loss to a high major per year under Wojo (Iowa, I4, Maryland etc.), but the only two "buy" games we ever lost under him were Omaha in the third game of his career, and Belmont, which historically is one of the better "buy" games available.  Wojo's problem was that his record in March was very subpar, he was usually fine for most of Nov-Dec.

And technically, Omaha was the only true buy game he lost. Belmont was the campus game for the Legends Classic.

Buzz and Crean lost buy games, too.  Annoyingly, it happens.

Buzz didn't, at least not here. He did lose the Green Bay game, but that was at the Resch Center. Buzz was an impressive 43-4 in home non-con games. His losses were NC State, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, and Ohio State.

John Grisham wrote a basketball novel last year called "Sooley," about a Sudanese kid who leaves his war-torn country to play at NC Central.

The basketball scenes were like "Hoosiers" on steroids -- Sooley not only makes about 90% of his shots but they all come from 30 feet away (except for the highlight-reel dunks). So that stuff was fictional ... but NC Central does actually exist. (I think.)

We all know we have to schedule buy games, but I'm happier with buy games that may actually challenge us. This is much better than bringing in the dregs of the SWAC, Chicago State, etc. TC brought in Delaware State a few times when they were defending MEAC champs and a team like that will actually help us.

  • Fort Myers is a weak field, no likely tourney teams, which means we needed to beef up our buy games

I don't like Chicago State being scheduled, but it doesn't inherently have a negative impact on our NET. As long as we beat them like a drum our NET will either improve or remain the same as a result. This isn't like RPI.

I immediately thought of the Ellenson year and wonder if they just aren't sure if they're any good. This slate does insure they will have some wins in non-con.

Chicago State is being played as a makeup for the cancelled game in the 2019-20 season. And as TAMU said, if they beat all the guarantees by 30+, it will be okay, but it doesn't make for a very attractive resume and it gives a lot less margin for error if it's a 7-4 or 6-5 non-con instead of the 9-2 or better we're hoping for.

If STHs are going to lose content while paying the same price, the quality of those buys should be higher, not lower. Teams like Vermont, Fresno, Buffalo, you actually learn something about your team and get an entertaining game from. Picking the worst buy slate since 2015-16 while also reducing content is a failure by the athletic department.

Do most STH care about the quality of the buy game opponents? Don’t get me wrong, I get the NET implications, but outside the outliers like Buffalo in 2018, my guess is that most really don’t care if it’s Vermont or Radford.

Its almost as if there has been a 9.1% inflation rate over the past 12 months.

My guess is that most STH care about the BE games and the high level non conference games. They don’t give a rip about the quality of the buy games.

So from their POV the quantity going down stinks, but the quality is largely fine. Especially with a top five team in Baylor and Wisconsin coming to town.

This is spot on - casual fans (which encompass most of the fan base) see a 340 Kenpom team in the same light as a 240 Kenpom team. Directional state U and it’s not putting butts in the seats.

Again it doesn’t excuse the NET implications, but most fans aren’t going to care all that much.

When they brought in a crap non-con slate in 2015-16, I panned it. They largely missed the postseason because of it. Not saying a tougher schedule would've got them the NCAA bid admin told the team they expected (according to Duane Wilson) but they probably at least make the NIT.

When they trimmed down on cupcakes and added quality buys like Fresno, Vermont, Buffalo, and North Dakota State, I praised it, and we were on track for our fourth consecutive postseason trip when the pandemic hit.

Now we're playing the worst non-con since 2015-16 and the combination of maximum garbage buy games coupled with a similarly weak MTE and the only quality games being the ones Marquette has no control over is irritating to me.

Since Buzz left, when we schedule garbage, we finish with garbage results. When we schedule with confidence, we do well. I don't care about what any other fan thinks. I know garbage when I see it, and MU served STHs a massive steaming plate of it.

Considering my costs don't change with reduced inventory and quality, I'm displeased. If you want to celebrate the Battle assigning us Baylor and the annual UWM game being at home, I guess, but in terms of what MARQUETTE actually did, it's crap, and I'm going to acknowledge that.

From that schedule I would assume they're not very confident on team at start of season.

This schedule isn’t complicated. Young, inexperienced team with Wisconsin, Purdue, Baylor, Notre Dame and pre season tournament already locked in.

No need to make things uglier than they possibly could be by scheduling and risking losses to decent low major teams.

As a STH, the home OOC schedule stinks for the money they asked (essentially they are asking me to pay the buy for the four crappy SOS teams and the one game I am not allowed to attend).

Separately, the OOC schedule is hurt mainly that it was MU's BE turn for the crappy Ft. Myers holiday tournament including LIU. That's on the BE and MU. MU hasn't been consistently good for a long time but still was banking on being invited to the Knight. Get better!

That said, with the expanded BE schedule, MU adds more quality games versus 15-16 as someone pointed out.

Bucky really isn't either, as that's just a series we renew. And Notre Dame was scheduled in November 2019, when Wojo, Markus, and Anim were all still here and Justin Lewis was starting his senior year of high school. The only player on this team who was a consideration was Oso, who committed 2 months earlier.

When you talk about what Marquette actually did for this schedule, it's really just the 4 games against Radford, Chicago State, Central Michigan, and NC Central. The rest was assigned or scheduled long ago.

Correct but the program knows they’ll be playing high major opponents from the Big10/B12 due to conferences previous scheduling commitments as well as Wisconsin.

Knowing these opponents and the youth of the squad this year, I understand taking the easy route in the buy game schedule. It certainly won’t elevate the computer numbers at all - But a young team building confidence with wins/avoiding losses to decent low major teams may help them more come conference season.

Who knows, but I’m a strong believer in team spirit and compounding losses early for a young team can be a back breaker as the season drags on.

So you're simply stating that you schedule differently when you expect to have better players on the roster. Thank you Captain Obvious.

I suspect the schedule might have been more to your liking had we retained more of Wojo's roster. A core of Carton as a senior, Oso and Garcia as juniors, Jones, Mitchell and Aidoo as a sophs would probably have provided greater confidence to play a more challenging schedule.

As it stands, given our top returning scorer is a soph who played 18 minutes per game, it's more than reasonable to ease up on the schedule this year. Which we largely can't do becuase we don't control so much of our schedule.

And if you're not going to give MU credit for anything outside of what they impact this year, why should they do anything in advance?  If you're not going to give them credit for having Wisconsin on the schedule, then  drop the Wisconsin series (because it's long-standing).  Beg out of the Big Ten and Big 12 challenges (since those are conference-wide initiatives), turn down pre-conference tournaments (because MU doesn't control the opponents), and cancel the Notre Dame contract (since it was negotiated several years ago).

1-2 of these types of games, sure. But scheduling all sub-275 teams hurts the resume in terms of Quadrant records, means you need to absolutely drub your opponents, and is providing a worse product for paying fans (less inventory and lower quality).

I don't think the expectation when playing teams projected in the 150-250 range at home should be a loss anyway, and 25 point wins are the minimum for these games to be a success, 30-40 point wins should be the goal, which is tough for a young team. In 2015-16, we played 6 teams that were 299th in RPI or worse and averaged exactly a 25-point win, though that was heavily offset by beating Grambling and Maine by a combined 83 points (55.3% of the margin in just two of the six games).

If this young team plays those four games at comfortable but inadequate 10-20 point margins, they will kill their NET early on and then, just like 2015-16, their NCAA hopes will basically be dashed by the end of December. If you play better opponents, there might be a little more risk, but you also don't have to win by 30. In the NET era, winning is no longer the measure of success. We've lost home non-con games to sub-100 teams twice in the past 15 years. Those were in Wojo's first two seasons (Nebraska-Omaha & Belmont) and I don't think we should live in fear of that happening when it is so infrequent.

Losses to bad teams that May be better than our young team early in the season kill your NET too. You can expect to win all day long, but the reality is those teams you want to play are generally older, more experienced squads that may give our youth trouble early on - even at home.

I’m fine with taking the safer scheduling route knowing we’ll have plenty of opportunities to excel in our challenging NC schedule as well as what will be a grind of a conference season.

Also buy games are buy games to 98% of fans. The majority of folks aren’t distinguishing grambling state from Vermont.

Yes, Goose was bullish on Shaka and Marquette going into last season but it's inaccurate to say he was the only one who didn't "doubt Shaka."

I'm too lazy to look it up but in the preseason poll, something like 20% of Scoopers expected Marquette to make the NCAA tournament. At least one Scooper predicted an Elite Eight run, and several had us going to the Sweet 16.

And at the end of the season, Goose actually was pretty critical of some of Shaka's coaching and disappointed with the result IIRC. Doesn't mean he's down on Shaka; he's still optimistic and I like that.

As for this season ... I expect us to play better and to have better results. I expect several of our heroes to improve significantly. It's reasonable to expect a program to show progress IMHO. I'm bullish on Shaka and MU hoops.

We Are Marquette!

Was actually this one: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-igloo/id1477715688?i=1000510831224

They start talking about 2015-16 at 42:16. Then at 1:02:20 Timmy Ice asks if they thought they were NIT locks and Wilson says "We knew we had to win one more game to get into the Tournament Tournament. We didn't even think about it, we for sure gonna get NIT."

It's a little unclear if the "one more game" was the St John's game they won or if they thought they needed one more (would've been Nova), but anyone letting that team think they were close to the NCAA Tournament or a NIT lock was lying or delusional.
