This is what got the 2009 team in hot water and an 8 seed.

Win on road.

The 2009 team was in hot water because the SEC sucked. We were SEC Champs and we were an 8 seed. We played UNC the closest of anyone in that tournament.

Are some of these the 2nd year of 2-year contracts? It doesn’t seem like the type of schedule that WW would want.

re: Basketball Non-Conference Schedule Announced
This is a disappointing schedule, especially coming from Wade, who bashed ULL for scheduling a weak schedule.

isn't that a week earlier than normal? Seems like basketball always started the second week in November?

Pretty boring schedule, but this team will be so good and exciting that it will be fun watching them against anyone. Houston and the tourney games should be good challenges and the SEC will be filled with challenging teams.

They don’t need to schedule an overly difficult non-conference because the SEC RPI should be exceptional this year.

Gosh, a real Murderers’ Row there of NC opponents.

The want is weak to watch any of those games.

I understand the home OOC doesn’t have any upper echelon teams, but Wade knows wtf he’s doing. I can promise you he has spent countless hours working on the OOC schedule.

Just try to enjoy the ride next year.

Friday 16 – LOUISIANA TECH

Sunday 9 – INCARNATE WORD
Friday 28 – ULM


These 4 teams are absolute RPI killers based on last year. Way too many bad teams. Stop freaking scheduling SWAC teams, they are NEVER any good.

On the flip side, people probably dont realize Southeastern Louisiana, UNC-Greeneboro and Furman were pretty good last year.

Louisiana Tech usually isn't as bad as they were last year, so I hope they are much improved. Upon looking them up though they lost 4 players to transfer including their best returning player so looks like coach in charge is losing control of that program now.

Incarnate Word was 348/351 in RPI last season, Grambling was 246/351 and ULM was 224/351. Ugh, cant be scheduling these guys in droves.

Will Wade is downright cocky in his ability to maximize the value of his non-conference schedules.
