    I like the nonconference schedule. You have a couple of challenges in UNI, cal, and Creighton but Tue rest should really help get this team some confidence.

    I hope we can get back to the point where we are scheduling a more rigorous non-conference schedule that includes some of the big season kick-off tournaments.

    Looks like we will probably be starting out the conference season at 1-4. There is another five game brutal stretch during conference play that we will be lucky to win one of five. I think five conference wins would be a major accomplishment for Fred in season one. If we could go 11-4 in the non conference and 5-11 in the conference that would put Fred at 16-15 in year one. 16-16 if we lose the first round of Big 12 tourney.

    A couple of questions:

    How do we have the Drake game in the middle of an Invitational?? Isn't that strange?

    Also, we really don't leave the state of iowa until 12/30? Wow. Nice for a young team.

    I agree. Once we get a post season caliber team that is.

    A noncon full of cupcakes will be good for Fred and the new guys.

    I would sign up for this in a heartbeat after what the roster looked like when Fred got here.

    Yep, it was a Wednesday night, and it was a cold, windy *** run from Larch into Hilton.

    Anybody else feel like our early conference schedule doesn't do us any favors? Always seem to have potentially winnable road games and our toughest home games. Just seems like we've had a lot of the toss-up games that make or break a conference season early the past few years. If you lose them it really gets you started on the wrong foot.

    Very easy non conf schedule. I see us 12 and 3 going into conf play.... But from there, I do not anticipate a whole lot of wins.

    i would say basically the conference schedule hinges on the conference opener @ nebraska. win that game, we go into the schedule with a little bit of momentum. lose that game, it could be a very long year

    I think the schedule looks good for a team that hasn't played much together. Rack up the wins early and build some confidence.

    I don't know the rules with a transfer.

    I know that if you are strictly red-shirting, then you can play exhibition games.
