With our season wrapping up next week it's time to start looking forward to which games will be on the docket for next season.

NON-CONFERENCE
Curious to see if the non-D1 games become a regular occurrence on our non-conference schedules. Considering we had trouble with the opponent we may want to consider reserving our embarrassment for other D1 teams. Also of not, the Davidson contract I saw was only through last season.

DAVIDSON
WAKE FOREST
@South Florida
@James Madison

If I'm Coach Price I don't worry about finding quality opponents, we need to rack up wins for his sake and to help C-USA. No public infortmation out regarding the possibility of early season event/tournament.

CONFERENCE USA
Expect the schedule to have sites flipped again unless we hear otherwise after meetings. Going to a tiered format like the A10 did in 2008 could help.

MARSHALL
MIDDLE TENNESSEE
NORTH TEXAS
OLD DOMINION
RICE
UAB
UTEP
UTSA
WESTERN KENTUCKY
@FIU
@Florida Atlantic
@Lousiana Tech
@Marshall
@North Texas
@Old Dominion
@Rice
@Southern Miss
@Western Kentucky

When was the South Florida game announced? Will this be a home-and-home? How much of a chance that they try to schedule WAKE at the Spectrum Center?

Wake is in Halton. USF was announced several months ago.

This does not appear to be in the works, however anything is possible.

Based on a document obtained last week, C-USA has divided the teams into tiers. We are designated "Tier 2" of 3, this designation was not on a similar document from last year. It's unclear what the role of the "Tiers" will be.

In C-USA the tiers would seem to be:

Tier 1 - Cares about basketball.  Invests in success.  Sees results.
Tier 2 - Cares about basketball.  Wishes for success.  Poor investment, poor results.
Tier 3 - Does not care about basketball.  Is just here for the refreshments.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!

Where are we?  Invest in basketball and not see success?

Tier 2 is generous for us, if these tiers are based on results.

I've always felt you can't get better unless you play competition that's better than you. Only way to build any sort of confidence you are a good basketball team is to beat or be really competitive against one...of course we are losing those types of games by 20-30 points...so who knows???...Man...we really suck...getting so hard to care anymore..........

Well, given our current state, that's pretty much most of the available D1 programs so that should not be an obstacle.  We are terrible.
