2019-2020 OOC schedule news

Post by smidge34 » Sat May 18, 2019 6:50 am

Aces’ athletics director Mark Spencer told the Courier & Press this week that his top revenue-generating sport will play a 6 p.m. home game Dec. 21 against defending Ohio Valley Conference champion Murray State. It will have been more than five years since UE played on a Saturday night at Ford Center – the last was against IUPUI on Dec. 13, 2014.

Any scheduling rumors?

Other than the return games we have from last season, are there any rumblings going around that any one has heard? I would love to see us get in a tournament but all the ones seem to be filled that I can find anyway.

I was waiting on someone else to bring this up, but unless I'm reading this wrong we're playing in a Bahamas tournament this August. I read it in the season ticket letter this morning.

We play one or two of these games every year. It’s amazing it’s still surprising to some and causes such a reaction. They are unavoidable for us and most everyone else. We need 15 or so home games to sell/market our season ticket package. And they probably serve a pretty good need for the team as it prepares for the majority of the season. Of all the complaining that goes on about it nobody has ever made a educated suggestion here as to how we should do it different.

Do you have confirmation it is an exhibition for us? I bet it is for them but regular season game for us.

So us beating Spaulding by 70 last season served a good need?

Eh, I’ll leave scheduling up to the man making a half million $ and a pair of conference ‘ships and an NCAA victory to his credit. We are untested at PG (been there, done that before) and will need tune ups.

If I'm not mistaken, we have played Brescia in the past and it counted as a regular season game for us and exhibition game for Brescia.

The Bahamas trip couldn't come in a better year to get the team acclimated with each other and give them some experience before the season.

i think the scheduling trend going forward is for Power Mid-Majors like Murray State (I just made that term up BTW, and will now ride that going forward on any Murray State discussion) to try and schedule the best mid-majors that you possibly can and hope one of those teams catch enough fire (i.e. upset a Power 5) to do your bidding for you. There is just nothing but bad mojo for the Power 5s to schedule a Top 100 mid-major and they rarely offer. Hats off to Bruce Pearl and Auburn for thinking outside the box on and playing at Murray's home floor two years ago.
