    That's how a non-con should be

    Top heavy for sure. Probably play 3 top 25 teams though between Iowa and the Emerald Coast Classic group.

    Also, I thought we were playing DePaul in the Big East game?

    I've always said this. Schedule easy teams and get non-con wins.

    And then if you’re in the position in March to get in the tournament (specifically on the bubble), your resume looks very meh.

    There are plenty of challenging teams listed already, so filling in with possible cupcakes is probably pretty good this year.

    But never sleep on North Carolina A&T. They were the random programmer powerhouse on an old March Madness game!

    Just don’t schedule the FAMU types. There’s no need for a challenging nonconference.

    And if you’re not likely to be good, it’s better to roll the dice on which way you fall in the bubble than have no chance because you had a tough nonconference.

    Weak schedule is good for a team with so many new faces coming off a poor season. Learn to play together and build confidence and chemistry. More time to get more guys minutes and see what we have and who works together.

    I don't worry about that. If you take care of business things work themselves out.

    I don’t trust us playing any A&M school. Prairie View A&M, Texas A&M, Alabama A&M, it doesn’t matter, I’m scarred for life.

    Yep, plenty of resume chances in conference play.

    If you're relying on a win in November to put you over the hump in March, you don't deserve to get in anyway.
