This non-random* schedule really gives the Gophers a chance to escape the bottom tier of the conference.
I see the logic with all but 1 of our home & homes. All but Iowa.This non-random* schedule really gives the Gophers a chance to escape the bottom tier of the conference.
*The Big Ten women's basketball schedule is determined annually based on predicted order of finish. The teams were tiered into like groups and those tiers were used to mathematically develop a competitively-balanced and equitable 18-game conference schedule with teams playing similar tiered teams more frequently.
Absolutely! A chance to play against the National runner up plus the fact that you all hate Iowa. If that doesn't get you amped up to play or put fannies in the seat then something is wrong. Should be 2 hard fought games. Don't under estimate your team. I think they'll be better than most people think.Of the projected top 4, better to play a rival twice than OSU, IU or MD twice.
