I think the NCAA is giving Summit teams a waiver on the amount of non D1 teams we play this year based on the timing of IUPUI's departure.

Looking at the schedule...if we can somehow get to .500 this season, it would have to be considered a HUGE success.

Just a horrible schedule to try and build student buy in/support

  • Avila -- Open w/Homecoming against a non D1 foe
  • Oakland -- day after Thanksgiving break -- this should be the marketing push for the fall to try and get a decent crowd
  • Southern Nazarene -- friday night, last day of classes, non D1 foe
  • Missouri St -- Sunday afternoon game; finals start next day
  • Omaha - during xmas break
  • Ft Wayne - during xmas break
  • Western Illinois - during xmas break
  • Denver - HOF night
  • East Tex Baptist - non D1 foe
  • Nebraska Christian - non D1 foe
  • NDSU
  • SDSU
  • SD

The last three dates might be appealing, but only if ORU is competitive in the league.  If they are beat down like last year, mired in a losing season, look for the students to not be engaged and the Mabee Center to be a ghost town by the end of the season again.

EDIT: How would you like to be the guy in charge of ticket sales w/a home schedule like that???

We are evidently purchasing two shooting 'devices'. Let's hope they help with our shooting percentages. Wonder if there is a 'rebounding machine'?

Terry, just wondering how much eligibility the new shooting devices have, and if you see them cracking the starting five or just coming off the bench?
