MU men's hoops non-conference schedule for 2007-2008

Re: schedule for 2007-2008 - Talked to Dave today..next year's home schedule.. Penn, Princeton, Tex & M CC, Rider. Road games - Paradise Jam - field of MU, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Baylor, Charlotte, Winthrop, Wichita State, Ill. Chicago.
Road games -at Seton Hall, St. Peter's, Hartford, and two more road games, could be Lehigh, and one other.


For 2009-2010 (planned first full year of the MAC)...""We'll have five (non-conference) home games, and an outside chance of six,'' Dave said.

It's a seeded field..so MU will probably draw UND or Ga. Tech to start...

Though some people objected to my prediction earlier, I see an 0-3 start..

The difference between this year and next year will be - many are upset now because this team was thought to have a chance (by me included) to do so well ...

Next year the outlook will be 7th-8th..etc. So anything they do positive will be scanned in a different light - as long as there appears to be some light at the end of the tunnel...

Wow, stacked is correct. Monmouth will be seeded 7th at best, possibly 8th.

Seeds as I see it are:

1) Notre Dame, 2) Georgia Tech, 3)Wichita State, 4) Winthrop, 5) Baylor, 6) Charlotte, 7/8) Monmouth/Ill-Chicago

The 3 and 4 seeds could be reversed, but that is how I see it right now.

As much as everyone may hate these games I really love them. One of these years we are going to steal 1 or 2 of these games and Dave is going to look like a genius. We've held our own in a lot of these games, its all a matter of closing the deal when the bigger teams turn up the pressure. We tend to fold under the pressure and give the game away.

I'm with you, "hit a free throw".Furthermore,it proves that Coach Cal is not obsessed like other say with his winning record.If Dave wanted a winning record he could schedule cupcake city ever year.As you can see,this is no walk in the park.

This is a pretty exciting non-conference schedule coming up. I really think it helps to prepare the team for the regular conference. In the past MU was the one playing the tough D1 schools, now other NEC competitors are getting into the mix, making it a much more competitive conference compared to the way it was a few years ago.

Regarding the MAC, I'm still not convinced we'll be there in 2008-2009! I'll believe it when I'm sitting in it!

MU may get its head handed to it next year in non-conference.. then again..as per recently..what else would be new?


The MAC - I'll believe it when I am sitting in the new pressroom!!!
