Wojo just said on Homer's Show, that there will be a handful of Big East games played before Jan. 1st.


Wasn't that already supposed to be the case?

I'm sure there is some sort of relief built into the contract.

But Wojo might want to play there anyway due to it merely being an NBA arena.  An empty NBA arena is still cooler than an empty glorified practice gym.


True, but if they choose to practice every day in the main gym at the Al, they could enhance their home court advantage through familiarity with the sightlines. May be a specially relevant this year, with all the new faces who have never played at the Forvm.

Yes, that's been the plan since they added UConn and went to 20 games.

That's what I thought. It was the way in how Wojo said it. Something like it will look different to what Marquette fans are used to.
Not sure what the number is, in the saying handful. Maybe the number is 5 or 6?

I interpreted it as, if we're already playing Madison, it's just easier to say that's the Gavitt game and call it a day so that we don't have to travel to Madison + another B14 location.  Similar to how the Beast, B12 series worked out.  Our home + home with K-State was announced before the challenge, and there was hope that we would get K-State + another B12 team last year, but the organizers saw that we were already playing and just made the pre-established match-up the official "challenge" one.

Don't we play UW at home this season?

Yep, my mistake.  Still think the overall point still stands, if they can say that the MU-Madison game is Gavitt, then there is less travel for Madison (assuming that they'd be on the road this year).

Hopefully, MU can work out a plan to revive the UCLA game for this season.

PAC-12 voted yesterday to restart fall sports in November. Hopefully this paves the way for a December basketball game to happen.

Marquette has pulled out of the hall of fame tip-off event. Wonder what that means for the schedule

Someone suggested on another site that perhaps MU will join a geographic-centric bubble situation instead?

When are we going to hear about an actual schedule?  Sounds like such a cluster-fuk.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

I would hope for a larger event where they can get more games in one run.

Step in the right direction. I mean if every D1 team in Illinois is in for it you'd actually have a decent size tournament with three major schools and two from the upper mid major conferences.

If there are 6-12 teams there, great, but if it's just a 4-team event as the initial tweets indicate, we may as well have stuck with Mohegan Sun.

Forgot about Bradley. Was trying to insinuate that the MVC is a clear step above the MAC OVC Horizon and Summit even without Creighton and Wichita state

Oh also gotta include Eastern

It may. Too early to know. This might just be something that is now part of reality, like AIDS or the Internet.
Or Wojos lifetime contract at MU.

Agree. If it's just a 4-team event with decent teams, the only difference between this and Mohegan Sun is the length of the flight.

With only seven weeks until the season starts, they better start figuring this sh*t out, especially since they just lost 2 of their better games.

Wojo and Broeker have been scheduling pretty well as of late.  I'm not too worried.  I have a feeling we'll see something better that the Mog Sun.

Yeah, I doubt they would have cancelled unless they had something better (or at least similar but closer) almost lined up.

At least I hope so.

Why would anyone think the normal rules apply?   I have no idea what it is going to look like.   I just know that I am going to have to squint through both parts of my bifocals to recognize it.    If I'm lucky.
