Is this multi-team event you speak of confirmed, or are you just assuming it is in the works? 

Honestly, would be nice to get a couple mid majors on the schedule that would be winnable games.  Right now we're already guaranteed 23 of our 27 max games are high majors.  Is a .500 season going to be good enough to get into the big dance this year without teams fattening up on cupcakes in the non con?
Wojo and Broeker seemed to hint that the event was on, but all the other teams haven't been finalized.

Those would be part of the 5 games they said are scheduled.  Hoping for at least a 6th, and outside chance at the max of 7 non-conf.

So has Fiserv offered MU a reduced rent or will the games be played at the Al this season. If they have to pay full rent they'll be losing a lot of money this season.

Someone can check my math, but Nov 25th to Dec 11th should be 17 days, and we're trying to get how many games in that span?

7, but they won't all necessarily be in that span. They could play a handful of league games then go back and finish non-con. Though I'm not sure that's the smartest course of action in a pandemic.

I hope they play 7 in 17 days.  2020 is boring AF...need something to do.

So if it is okay for all of us to travel as often as we wish, why can't college basketball teams? I'm no expert so this is a serious question. I've been to LA and DFW in the past two weeks and airports and flights seem to be at 60% to 70% capacity. Is the issue the game itself?

They'll be charter so I don't think that will be the issue. I think the hope would be to complete all the non-con games first so once conference play starts, the only mixing is between Big East teams, which should make it easier to isolate them from each other and also to leave enough time later in the year to try to reschedule the inevitable cancellations.

Quote
Wisconsin and Marquette are planning to host an MTE with Eastern Illinois and Arkansas Pine-Bluff, according to sources. The plan is to hold it as a two-game MTE with scheduling flexibility at the start of the season. Here’s how it would work …

EIU + Pine Bluff would both play road games at UW + MU on the same dates but in opposite venues (i.e. 11.25/11.27). UW and MU will play each other no matter what, but if either EIU or A-PB can’t play that MTE last minute, UW-MU game would fold into the MTE and be game No. 2.

If UW and Marquette can host a pair of games against Pine Bluff and EIU as planned, Wisconsin-Marquette game will be played/counted as a standalone. (And if EIU or Pine Bluff bail late, MU and UW would work on getting their own last-minute games against schools in the region.)

Any word on whether the MU vs. UW standalone game would be considered MU's home game in their series if they both do get their 2 games against EIU and A-PB?  Or if it'll be considered a "neutral court" game and MU would get to host the 2021 game?

I believe I read that MU's 2020 game is a home game, and that UW will have the 2021 game, regardless if there are fans or not.

Got it.  Kind of sucks, but so it goes.

Sounds like we're on the favorable side of that coin in our UCLA home and home.

So we got:

11/25 home - Arkansas PB / Eastern Illinois (MTE)
11/27 home - Eastern Illinois / Arkansas PB (MTE)
12/1  home - Oklahoma State
12/4  home - Wisconsin
12/11  away - UCLA

So that is 5 games. If Ark PB or Eastern Illinois bails last minute, one of those early games becomes UW/MU matchup with respect the MTE and Marquette tries to find a regional opponent last minute to fill the UW game. 

So my understanding is we still have 2 opening for further non-con games.  I've heard Green Bay mentioned - but maybe they are the MTE contingency plan. 

Would sure be nice to play the full 7 games.

Broeker was a little testy in that exchange. Kind of a weird look.


No idea why he decided to challenge him publicly over Twitter.

Fact - Two game MTEs must be played in five days (source NCAA). 
Fact - We play UW on 12/4 (source - Ben Steele)
Incorrect fact - "...but if either EIU or A-PB can’t play that MTE last minute, UW-MU game would fold into the MTE and be game No. 2." (source - no idea).

If all that emerges from this is an MTE with EIU and A-PB, that would be very disappointing.

I haven't dug into them yet, but I could live with two wins out of the MTE. With only 7 non-con games and UW-Madison, UCLA, & Cade Cunningham on the schedule, a few easy ones to get us to (hopefully at least) 5-2 isn't a bad idea.

That is a very good point you are making. We need to be on the winning side of the non con ledger. Our league schedule is going to be a tough gauntlet and we need momentum going into it.

So far, I believe the schedule is the following:

  • EIU
  • Arkansas-Pine Bluff
  • Oklahoma State
  • UW-Madison
  • UCLA
  • UW-Green Bay
There is still one open date they are working on filling, but I'm not aware of who will be in that spot yet.

Wasn't it said they would bank it. (7 non conference game) As they have two byes during league play.

Maybe the season starts on November 25, maybe it doesn't.
