    This coach and A.D. are freakin Crazy.

    Look at the teams tiny Presbyterian College has played this year.

    Clemson
    Illinois
    Bradley
    North Carolina
    Ohio State
    Dayton

    Coming up next for them is

    Marquette
    Florida

    Everyone of them is an away game.




    Basketball Schedule


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Looks like they played Bradley the closest of all those teams.

    I know it's $$$. At the same time how do you get your team pumped up to play the season. It is nice that the kids get to go play at these schools. However you know your starting the season out with a ton of losses and not even close losses. If I was a decent player though I would go there. Chance to play against the big boys and tell my kids I played in some of the most famous arenas in college.

    Exactly. Teams like this only make the Dance if they win their conference - there is no "at large" in their future. Makes the non-conference record meaningless. Might as well get paid, get some good experience and perhaps a good upset.

    Its not about being crazy.

    Its about having no money for your program, so you go on the road all non-con season and get destroyed by the big boys to get some cash and keep your program going.

    What everyone else said.
    No chance to make the dance unless they win the conf tourney anyway.
    Great recruiting ploy- "We get to play in some of the best venues in College BBall."


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    I would hope they could get a better recruit playing that schedule instead of playing CupCake U and CupCake St.

    Re: This coach and A.D. are freakin Crazy.

    I like what they did with their schedule. If a college kid can't get up and give his all in those games, he doesn't really want to play college ball. Do they have a shot at winning them? Hell no. But there's that one time when the light will shine on the bull's ***, and when it does, those kids will remember it forever.

    This team will (has) played some of the best, and while they may get blown out by most, this is a way to fund their program.

    Exactly, the AD and coach are pretty smart to do this between the money and recruiting pitch.

    They make a ton of money I'm sure. They get to play against great competition in great environments. It doesn't really make much difference if they go 0-fer in the non-conference. They don't have a chance in hell of being a bubble team. Have fun and a great experience, get as prepared as you can for the conference schedule. That's what these kids have to play for. Not a bad route to go for a lot of these kids I bet.

    Re: This coach and A.D. are freakin Crazy.

    From a motivational perspective, I would approach it from this angle: none of the kids on a team like this have delusions of playing in the NBA. They have a chance to go out on the court and play their *** off and hold so and so to less than the double-double they average, or lock down defend one guy, or block futurestarPG's layup. Call it the "One Shining Moment" angle.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Catch one of those big name teams on an off day and somehow pull off a victory...that'd be huge for their recruitment, national attention, and potential donor $$.
