Yeah I get you. The way I interpret this is this is the best teams we can get to come here and MD has no interest road warrior stuff. I also think this schedule is MD's decision all the way.

I'm renewing my season tickets but I do miss our Metro conference scheduling both in and OOC. It is what it is. Current one is still better than what Conroy/Dickson gave us. Let's just start winning.

The way I interpret it is an intentional effort to have an easy ooc schedule and fluff up win totals.
We can get better teams to play.
This is ridiculous.

I don't think it's that bad.

We get FSU to come here, which is the biggest OOC game in Devlin in forever. The tournament at FGCU has some pretty good teams in it. Georgia State had an RPI inside the top 100 for much of last season.

It's certainly not great, but I'm looking forward to some of those games.

We played a lot of cupcakes in OOC in my (Metro) day. Maybe they didn't seem that way because we were still new and they weren't guaranteed wins? Or maybe it was just because there was no internet for us to pat each other on the back and say, "yeah, yeah, that schedule really is terrible!" like there is now.

I mean, we had Hofstra and Central Connecticut State and Lamar and Mercer and many others, along with the usuals like Nicholls and Prairie View. I think time makes the memories grow fonder.

At Loyola Chicago again this year would have been a nice addition, just saying

To be fair, with the 2 tournaments we have 7 home games and 6 non-home games

We need to be scheduling with the goal of getting to the tournament whether the goal is reasonable or not. This schedule does not do that. The only win that would be touted as a quality win would be Florida State.

That Metro conference was better than what we have right now in the AAC. Memphis doesn't come close to selling out Fogelman anymore and hasn't for several years. We knew you guys were going to be good so we didn't care about the opponent. We went to see Tulane.

I'm dating myself. I was thinking of first iteration of Metro. Maybe just too much nostalgia. Regardless I wish we scheduled like Temple. This looks like LSU's OOC schedule.

I'm too lazy to go back and check, but in that FTW podcast with Dannen, there was a segment about scheduling. I think I remember TD saying that next year (next year, sigh) our MBB schedule would be like that of an expected NCAA bubble team. Does anyone else recall that, or am I imagining it?

He said that but it really doesn’t make any sense: Doesn’t explain why they would make this schedule so uninteresting

This OOC schedule looks like it’s for a CIT bubble team. I wonder why they left Pete’s intramural team off the schedule.

TD was referring to 2019-20 MBB schedule. He left impression that this year would be like an NIT bubble team. (NOT)

With this schedule to get any type of meaningful respect, Tulane is going to have to win 25 games and have a winning conference record and at least not be one and done in conference tourney. Why? Because this does have aroma of being CIT bubble schedule.

I almost wonder if this is a gift for Dunleavy to leave Tulane with the legacy of at least one winning season...

Because it's tougher than half of those teams.

We've always played cupcakes, even in the glory years, but we also played some decent OOC teams, too. This schedule is, to put it charitably, weak outside of ONE opponent.

I agree that the OOC schedule is not very appealing. That being said, we knew this was coming to a degree.

At the recent "Let's Talk Football" event at Boomtown Casino, Dannen indicated that this season's basketball OOC schedule would be *not* be formed with the intention of building RPI, but that next season's OOC schedule will be built with the intention of strengthening the team's RPI (or whatever the new system is called) for postseason purposes.

Dannen knows basketball program building well. UNI was pretty damned good during his tenure
