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.

UW-Milwaukee?

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).
This reads like a Jaybee post.

Per Jon Rothstein, Rhode Island is making the Mohegan Sun tournament a 4 game event.

Playing Stephen F Austin, Towson, and then the tournament games.

So MU theoretically punted games against Stephen F Austin, Towson, Rhode Island and then Virginia Tech/Temple/Minnetonka (sounds like Minny may be dropping from it as well), to play a home MTE with EIU and Arkansas-PB.

Outside of trying to minimize travel, I don't really understand the thought process.  These four games could have filled the 7 game non-con schedule along with Wisco, OK State and UCLA and still gives MU 2 easy wins again SFA and Towson.  Only 2 home games....sure...but who cares with no fans.   
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

It isn't just minimizing travel but also not knowing what restrictions there would be on travel. What if they needed to quarantine before traveling to Mohegan Sun? The schedule they constructed means they only have to leave the state once (UCLA).

Another aspect is you don't want to overload a young team. UWGB, UAPB, & EIU should be 3 comfortable wins. If they bomb the high major games, you can still add a guarantee game to get to 4-3 non-con and still have a shot at the tournament. Go to Mohegan Sun, go 2-2, and suddenly you need to go 2-1 against UCLA, UW-Madison, and Ok State just to stay in the conversation.

I don't think we need an Ellenson year non-con slate, but Ellenson lite probably isn't a bad idea.

So much for the Orlando non-conference bubble.  It looks like MU may have been smart to steer clear of these events.

https://theathletic.com/2160764/?source=twittered

ESPN’s plans to set up an NBA-like bubble for its college basketball events in Orlando have been scuttled due to ongoing differences between the network and the participating schools regarding the health and safety protocols required for participation, The Athletic has learned. The decision impacts 10 events owned by ESPN and more than two dozen schools who were supposed to play in them, and it has thrown what was already a chaotic environment with regard to scheduling into further disarray just one month before the season is set to tip off on Nov. 25.

I hear they want to bank the 7th game. They will have two byes during league play. So, if a game is PPD, they can schedule a local non-conference game.

Not a bad idea. Might be a lesson learned from CFB, where teams have lost games due to their opponents having outbreaks. Obviously, more flexibility with hoops, given the much smaller traveling party and the ability to play pretty much any day. And we could almost certainly use the Al on virtually no notice.

A last-minute matchup with a Northwestern or Loyola would certainly seem doable if teams have last-minute openings.

Isn't the Pine Bluff and Eastern Illinois part of an MTE with UW?  Does that give us room for two games or has that already been factored in?

BTW, I think Marquette did a really good job with a non-conference schedule considering how the BE moved their season up.  3 buy games.  3 quality non-conference opponents.  Only have to leave the state once.

Geez, that is a tough start to the conference season. At Creighton and vs. Villanova are two of the three toughests game on the scheduled this season. Vs. Seton Hall and at Xavier aren't walks in the park either. If we start BEast play 2-2 this season I will be very optimistic about the rest of the season.

So looks like we only get 6 noncon games.

They are playing 10 games in 28 days or a game every 2.8 days. I'm not sure where they could have placed a 7th non-conference game. Sunday the 29th or Sunday the 6th are the only two options I see and either would have resulted in 3 games in 5 days. Doable at a neutral site tournament, I think less doable as a home or away game.

Hopefully Nielsen is right and we'll see a 7th game pop up some time in the middle of the BEast season.

It's factored in. The MTE allows us a maximum of 7 non-con games. Leaving one open means we schedule it with some flexibility based on health and need (minimum 13 games played to qualify for NCAA tournament).

Yeah - the idea to bank one makes some sense.  Hopefully that is added as it looks like we'll only have 16 games across the first 10 weeks of 2021.  Although, realistically, unless the NCAA changes their 14 day COVID policy, this season is going to be a complete clusterf**k.

MU vs. UW is still on.  Only the Gavitt Games are canceled, so if those other series aren't part of the Gavitt Games I'd guess they'd still play.
