2024-25 Non-Conference Schedule
« on: April 10, 2024, 09:02:39 AM »
Not sure if there was a thread on this already but if so couldn’t find it.

So far off top of my head there is the Badgers game at Fiserv and the neutral site game vs Georgia in the Bahamas.

Rothstein just announced this is the final year of the Big East/Big 12 Battle.. hope we aren’t on the path to having to have an annual battle vs the Mountain West or other non P-6 conference:

Starting next year, there is no P6. If you remove the B12 and B10, and the SEC is already tied to both the ACC and B10, that really only leaves the ACC or (I guess) Mountain West.

After that, it's probably the A-10 or WCC as the next most desirable, and frankly, I don't think either are very desirable. I'd tier our challenge options as...

1. ACC

<Big Gap>

2. Mountain West

<Mammoth Gap>

.

.

.

.

.

3. There is no 3, no one else is worth it.

With the proliferation of mega leagues, non-conference scheduling is going to be more difficult, imo. 

We’re going to get to the point where Marquette can’t duck UWM anymore

Hopefully they can keep the series with ND going.

I would also be open to home-home series with old foes like Louisville, Cinci, Pitt, Cuse, WVU.

BE Big 12 battle over after next year - this is less than ideal.

They are waiting for the TV networks for their own conference.

And there really is no need for a conference v. conference type challenge any longer. Just schedule the best you can.

I don’t think there’s anything to gain for the league to do a challenge with the MWC. Good league but really a no win for the BE.

MU does a good job with their scheduling and think that’ll continue. Thought the Georgia game in the Bahamas was a creative idea.

I believe the B12 is an ESPN asset. That makes sense if so. The BE v B12 never got much traction. I don't see this moving the needle. One game a year you can't control. Maybe a net positive for a program like MU.

Gonzaga anyone?

Wrong.  It’s a Fox Sports/ESPN property

Hopefully they can keep the series with ND going.

That one is off the table. ND started a series with Georgetown and wasn't interested in continuing things with Marquette. Maybe it could come back in the future, but the sense I get is that they don't want to get embarrassed twice a year and were not a willing party in continuing to sign up for annual ass-kickings.

I wouldn't say that Gavitt games or the BE/B12 battle are done forever,  yet. There's a lot of moving pieces at the moment with so many teams moving between the Power 4. I think once things are settled and these conferences have figured out how their conference schedules are going to work,  you may see these challenges resume

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

Sadly, that was Georgetown's best win of the year... in overtime.

From a Marquette perspective(and other higher profile programs in the BE), you might be right but some of the teams in the conference struggle to get quality non-con opponents outside of these series.  That's not just my opinion either, but people within Marquette's program as well.

Just book bad teams and beat them by 40 and we'll get more teams in the Tournament.

Any news on the teams for the MTE  tournament in Milwaukee to go with the one in the Bahamas?  I had heard some gossip of the Badgers, UWGB, UWM, MU in Wisconsin's version of the Big 5 bandied about but Wisconsin just signed up for the Greenbrier. Or is MU angling for the NIL tournament in Vegas?

Isn't that ACC style?


Oh, wait, ACC style is to have a bunch of bad teams in your conference, beat them by 40 and get more teams into the tournament.

Agreed, what was the skunk rule this year, halting the game at 20-something to 2.

Even the Mountain West has all of its best players in the portal.  I'm not sure they should even be mentioned either.

Arizona in the Big 12.  All this crazy realignment is going to take some getting used to.
