Looks like an quality upgrade in competition in what you listed. I don't see all the SWAC/Southland matchups that have dominated recent OOC schedules.
The SEC is "encouraging" teams to upgrade their OOC hoops schedules and I agree with that.
I don't think you can get better until you identify...

As a high schooler at the time it was for me. Growing up my experience early under Coach Mac was that we had some good team but we never beat ranked teams. From when I can remember starting to watch in 1973 until that year we maybe beat one team that ended the year ranked.
That changed in '82 wi...
