Colgate, Oakland, Bucknell should all have strong RPIs, combine that with 4 P5 opponents and we should once again do well in the NET. Cornell and Niagara shouldn’t really hurt us either

Yukon Future Games?
Would you:
1. Never Schedule Them again save for some sort of forced early season "Tournament Thing"?
2. Make them an annual thing H/H or 3 game sets (Dome, CT, MSG)?
3. Every year at MSG?
4. Offer them Niagara’s slot and allow them to play at the Dome every year?

Whatever pisses off MaUconnfan the most.

The Orange should be looking to schedule Buffalo and the Bonnies.
I think the idea is to spread $$$ among other upstate programs, to help support them. That's why Colgate and Cornell are on the schedule most years. UB and St Bona have been opponents the past 2 seasons. Now it's Niagara's turn.

Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and Penn St can claim an advantage?

If we dont win two there, thats a problem.
Not talking about this tournament, or even this season. There is St. John's, and UConn, and Nova, and, of course, Duke.

And we have more crowd support down there more than any one of those teams you listed.

Maybe. But, I never hear the talking heads on TV or the nay-sayers on the board yammer that any of them has a home-court advantage playing in the Garden. I think it's laziness and/or lack of basic geographic knowledge.

You dont think NYC is a huge advantage for us?
I don’t know that it is anymore. How many of our guys have played there?

When we played in the BET at MSG every year, I think MSG was an advantage if we played an OOC team there. Not just because of the crowd, but even moreso because our guys were used to playing there.

There are going to be years where we play a tourney in NYC and host the ACC/Big Ten challenge game. This will be a respectable non-conference SOS.
Not saying it isn't.
