Very strong schedule this year with OOC weekends being WVU, @ ECU, Rider, & Xavier. Mid weeks with SC, NC State, & Wake.
We play WKU for the first time this year, and drop USM from the C-USA schedule.
Home C-USA weekends: LaTech, FAU, MTSU, Rice, UTSA
Road C-USA Weekends: FIU, ODU, WKU, UAB, Marshall[/quote]
There’s no explanation for WHY they chose to create the toughest schedule in history.[/quote]
Built in excuse for Hibbs, we can’t even beat middle of the road teams half the time. We will finish around .500 and Judy will tell you to look at the schedule.[/quote] yes, we only beat 3 Top 15 teams on the road last season.[/quote]
Great but we went 23-32 overall, 14-20 at home, and were swept right out of the conference tournament. Alan Major’s teams got up for some big games too.[/quote]
Please…when C-USA basketball reaches the quality level of C-USA baseball OR when Hibbs gets comparable resources to what AM had (relative to the competition) get back to me.[/quote]
My point wasn’t to make an apples to apples comparsion (I know CUSA baseball is tougher). My point was you can’t say everything is ok because he won 3 games against ranked opponents. We were suppose to see a YOY improvement in CUSA and we haven’t, plain and simple.
If no one wants to invest big money in a .500 program at some point you have to win with what you have to get to that next level and gain those resources. Maybe it is a chicken and egg predicament but I feel like we are spinning our wheels right now.[/quote]
I disagree. This team was much better (if you actually watch them and keep up with them throughout the season) last season than the previous one and I fully expect more improvement this season.
