Heard Chicago State might be buy game

Considering the slate of buy games, that's would be a disappointing addition.

EDIT: While I understand making good on old contracts, putting Radford, Central Michigan, and NC Central around them is a less than ideal decision.

The one buy game that's not completely sh*t. Fantastic.

Getting stuck with Baylor and @Purdue discourages playing a willingly scheduling a A10 team at home. Seems like 2 of the 3 most difficult outcomes.

If your gonna do a student only game. Doing it early in a season makes all the sense in the world.

Per the article, no exhibition game, and with CMU at the Al, that means 17 home dates. Disappointing, I'd say.

16 home dates. 10 conference games, 6 non-conference, 1 game at the Al, and 0 exhibitions. Not ideal from a season ticket holder perspective

Were there really no other options outside of 7-25 (#340 NET) Chicago State?  I understand the need for buy games, but what a waste of a game (not to mention negative impact for our NET). 

Chicago State has no business being a D1 program.

I guess when I thought my ticket prices didn’t increase that much, I wasn’t looking at a per game basis.

Not at all.

It's crazy to spend as much as MU does at Fiserv, and still have to play a regular season game at the Al.

My guess is that they wanted to play that weekend, but...

And I wonder if they had to hold some dates open for the NBA schedule.

The more I look at this, the more pissed I get:

  • 16 home dates
  • No exhibition
  • Marquette controlled 4 home games that have an average 2022 NET of 309 (288 Radford, 290 NC Central, 314 CMU, 340 Chicago St)
  • LIU is the worst team in the Fort Myers campus game field
  • Fort Myers is a weak field, no likely tourney teams, which means we needed to beef up our buy games
My initial gut reaction is that this is the worst non-con since 2015-16.

I agree. Why do you think Marquette scheduled like this, brew? Reminds me a little of the Ellenson year's schedule.

If we can get to the finals (or win) Fort Myers and win 2/4 of the remaining high major games, we should be fine.

Anything less than that and we will need a helluva conference season

If we beat the buy games by 30+ we are fine as well. Unless they change that from years past

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.

I like that there is no exhibition. I like the secret scrimmages against quality teams. Gives the coaching staff a better assessment of where the team is and where they need to be.

I might add MU was originally supposed to host ND this season but that was switched. Too bad MU wanted our money early this year.  Dogfish schedule.

As a STH, I'm happy missing an exhibition game in late October or early November.

10 conference games, plus Wisconsin and Baylor. 12/16 home dates are pretty good number.

It wasn't that long ago we had 9 conference games. Exhibition game. 7 to 8 donkeys at home. Home schedule has been solid the last two years. I enjoy UConn coming in giving us 10 conference home games and losing 2 buy games.
