    There was just a front page announcement about it if you can't get it attached.

    Re: Schedule is out

    "World Vision Classic" ????

    And are they going to Hawaii to play just one game?

    Otherwise, looks like the usual snooze-fest non-conference, except for possibly Oregon State - and I have no idea if they're any good.

    I'd like to see better competition non-conference. Iowa isn't really all that good, are they? Don't imagine UNI is anything special. Drake will still be dangerous, but I expect a monumental dropoff from last year's high.

    But with a young team like we got, an easier schedule might give time to develop and gain confidence.

    I would argue that the Beavs were the worst team in a BCS conference last year and they probably will be absolutely god awful again this season.

    Edit: With the exception of the Drake game there really isn't a good game on that schedule until conference play starts. I see the attendance a lot of us have been proud of really suffering this season.

    Wow.

    And aside from Drake, that's our marquee non-conf home game.

    Re: Schedule is out

    Game in Hawaii on Monday and another at home on Saturday? That's a quick turnaround.

    Looks like Jackrabbit fans will have a chance to come to Ames again on Dec. 23rd.

    The Oregon State game should be interesting this fall with Obama's brother in law coaching the Beavs. He was a speaker at the DNC last night.

    Re: Schedule is out

    Here's the webpage for the schedule if you don't want to mess with the PDF.

    Basketball (M) - Schedule - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - Iowa State Cyclones Sports

    I'll definitely be in attendance at the Houston and UT games.

    Re: Schedule is out

    Love me some SIU-Edwardsville and Houston Baptist...Not great competition so it ESSENTIAL to have a really good record coming out of Non-conference. I will be curious to see who we get next year for the Big 12/Pac 10 challenge! Anything is better than OSU.

    Re: Schedule is out

    That is the worst non conference schedule we have had since LE was here. Not one quality non conference opponent (I will exclude in-state schools since they are there every year).

    The pressure to win this season is obvious.

    Re: Schedule is out

    Let's give UW-Milwaukee a little bit of credit as they've made several tourneys lately (not saying how good they're gonna be this year, however).

    Otherwise, yeah - this is a pretty underwhelming schedule. Let's hope that a postseason berth isn't resting on a strong RPI number...

    With that schedule we could be looking at an RPI around 200 even if we go undefeated in the nonconference.

    Re: Schedule is out

    Yeah hopefully we will get somebody better than OSU but we'll need to improve this year or we'll get assigned another crappy team for the next two years.

    I've got us at 17-14 going into the tourney, but the real problem with this sched is that even if we do go on a run the SOS will be so incredibly weak the team will probably need 22 wins at a minimum to even be on the NCAA bubble and 20 to get on the NIT bubble.
