    Re: Non-Conference Schedule

    Well, hopefully in the future we can start getting into some tournaments where we won't be the headliner.

    Re: Non-Conference Schedule

    The Arkansas team could/will be a very interesting matchup. Initially, Arkansas was the last team I wanted to get matched up with from the SEC after watching them last year a few times. When I watched them, they played really aggressive, fast pace, and have some nice quick talented athletic players that can score. Also, you know they have this game circled/statement game and are going to come into Hilton with a chip on their shoulders and go all out to verify what their program is trying to build.


    Should be a classic back and forth game and have come to the conclusion that this game may give this years squad some early on adversity experience to build upon for latter in the year.

    You're referring to getting high-end tournament invitations. Consistent success (high conference finishes in regular season, frequent rankings, good NCAA tournament runs) will help with that.

    Maui field is scheduled at least 2 years out (maybe it's even 3) but that's a biggie, along with a few other high-profile slots ... if that happens, we'd get a built-in resume-boost (and exposure) and the rest of the typical schedule wouldn't have to change all that much.

    Consistency is a key. Two good seasons followed by one or two marginal years, then a couple OK seasons -- that won't get us into those situations often enough.

    K-State, Mizzou, Purdue, Pitt and BYU are in this year's Maui Invitational. Not sure why Iowa State can't get in there right now. Not every team in the field is Arizona, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. I have no idea what the process is for these tourneys so I don't know what it takes to get in. I am sure that schools don't just sit back crossing their fingers hoping for an invite.

    I've always wanted to go over to Hawaii when KU plays there but my wife doesn't see sitting in a gym with no air conditioning watching basketball as her dream Hawaiian vacation. Who is this person I married? Maybe I'll ask her to send me on my own for my next milestone birthday. Yeah, right.

    Hope so. A high big 12 finish and deep tournament run wouldn't hurt. Do that announce those in spring of prior year?

    Maui field is announced two full years ahead.

    The Nov. 2015 field was announced in Nov. 2013.

    Thanks... couldn't recall if it was spring or in November (didn't look it up before my post).

    So to get a 2016 bid, last year's run will be high end. Could definitely see it happening.

    Re: Non-Conference Schedule

    I really wish we had that stellar home game to get tickets to. Now I'll probably end up going to the CBE in KC and then try and land tickets to the KU game...assuming that's not on a Monday again. Though I'm guessing when Big Monday comes out we will have at minimum 3 of those games, one of those being Vs. KU.
