Non-conference schedule

Post by ineptimusprime » September 1st, 2019, 7:41 pm

We’ve gotta be releasing the schedule soon, right? We’re creeping right up on the season. When’s the latest it’s been released?

I think we're still trying to get one more game scheduled.

Unless something has changed VERY recently, this is still the case. And the crazy thing is, I don't think they are looking for a home game and no one still wants to play us.

When you say no one, do you actually mean no one, or just no one worthwhile? Are the rumored Texas and Arizona games happening?

From what I've heard, USU is pretty much willing to play anyone at this point. They're trying anything and everything to get the last game filled. We just added Denver which was one of the worst teams in the country last year. We simply can't leave a spot on the schedule open. Hopefully the delay doesn't cause a delay in fans getting season tickets but I'm guessing it does.

I already renewed mine, but that is because I am an exceptional fan who doesn’t accept mediocrity.

I find it hard to believe that schools like UVU, SUU, Idaho State, etc. won’t play us home and home. Perhaps they have filled their schedules this late in the scheduling season, but if we were willing to schedule “anyone” before they filled their schedules, I doubt they would have said no. My guess is we were being pickier earlier, and now that it is late, we have become desperate and are claiming to be willing to schedule anyone and “no one” will play us (but many teams have completed their schedule now).

Why we can't get Gonzaga or a Pac 12 team on the schedule?

We got good too fast! Last year no one wanted to play us because we sucked. This year all the good teams have filled their schedules with the teams that were good the year before.... not really how it works - everyone plays crap schedules in basketball.

Is it hard to schedule when we suck or when we are good? Seems like we always struggle filling a schedule.

Rothstein just announced a neutral game against South Florida in Houston. Our non-conference schedule will be our toughest ever, a shame none of the games will be in Logan tho

Good. Get them ready for the tournament this year. Plus we're more likely to get quad 1 games in neutral and away games. However, it would be fun to have a few really good opponents in Logan...

So, is this the list to date?

11/5 - Montana St (#246)
11/12 - Denver (#324)
11/22 - (neutral) LSU (#16)
11/24 - (neutral) North Texas (#147)
12/14 - (neutral) BYU (#89)
12/18 - (neutral) South Florida (#83)
12/21 - (neutral) Florida (#30)
TBA - @St Mary's (#35)
TBA - Weber St (#182)

The average 2018-19 NET ranking of our OOC opponents here is 128. Not bad.

Playing south Florida in Houston? I’m sorry that is just silly. Should be played as a home and home in this case.

BYU is a neutral game (Beehive Classic).

Thanks for pointing that out. I also just checked St. Mary's and it appears that they've released their schedule without USU on it. Not sure what happened. Jon Rothstein first announced the game.

That is weird. Smith mentioned the SMC series on the recent pod with Rothstein...

It is possible that they are waiting for us to complete our schedule before they officially announce a date for this game.

Actually, I wonder if they just messed up adding the schedule to their website. The Tweet from St Mary's 4 days ago shows us playing there on November 29. It's missing from the schedule page though.

If it is happening, the only gaps of time that the two schedules show are Nov 26-29, Dec 11-12, and Dec 23-26

That is correct. The schedule page on here is now fully updated and I'm pretty sure that we have the entire schedule except for the exhibition opponent.

I’m sad this one and Denver will not work out for me. I planned on driving to the Sat Fresno game then go to San Fran to watch the Seahawks Monday night. Doesn’t sound as fun missing two basketball games to do that (or miss one and get up early Saturday and drive).

The full season before the conference tournament consists of 29 games. But a multi-team event like the Jamaica Classic counts as only two games. So, with the four Jamaica Classic games, the Aggie can schedule 31 games. The conference schedule is 18, so they get 13 OOC games.

So we could still schedule two more in addition to the two Jamaica Classic tune-up home games?

I think that is correct. The South Florida game was just announced, but there have been posts on this board for weeks that there was a neutral-site game in Houston. I don’t think that is one of the two final games that they were looking at.

I don’t know if Denver is one of those two final games they were trying to schedule, but it appears that two more games still need to be announced.

I don’t see a lower-division game on the schedule and that seems like an obvious place to get one more game. I’m guessing that one has been scheduled and not announced because they are going to fit it into an open date when the final D1 game has been scheduled.

So, my best guess is that Denver was one of the final two games and they are now looking for one more D1 game. Once that happens, the lower-division home game will be finalized and the entire schedule will be announced.

Also, it looks like our first 5 games might all be at home (Montana St., Weber, Denver, and 2 Jamaica Classic home games). Should be 5-0 out of the gate and should have plenty of opportunities to get young guys some minutes and experience right out of the chute before things toughen up with LSU, SMC, BYU, South Florida, and Florida (that group of teams on our schedule sounds amazing, BTW).

Like how this is shaping up even though it is taking a while. Looking at dates, there’s probably room for one more D1 game in between Fresno and BYU in December, and an NAIA game after Christmas before the conference schedule starts in earnest.

This question is answered in the affirmative, and more literally than most have realized.
