Exactly.Hopefully they are looking at a true road game with a decent opponent for the last slot.
Plus a good tournament going forward.Exactly.
Especially now for the Gophers with the ACC Challenge gone, I've always thought the best scheduling thing a school like Minnesota should do is have 2 home & home series running at the same time. ... one at home and one on the road. Think it'd be awesome if we added to the Mizzou home game a road game at someone like BYU or Vandy.
The MTE event at the Barn should have been for 2023's worst power 6 teams. MN, Cal, Georgetown, Louisville.Perhaps, Stanford or Cal?
Just to show them what they are missing.
I just want to see Goldy beat the shit out of the tree.The MTE event at the Barn should have been for 2023's worst power 6 teams. MN, Cal, Georgetown, Louisville.
In all seriousness, I don't know why they don't play Cal or Stanford when they go to San Francisco to play USF. Perhaps they will but I'd think that would have been announced at the same time.
It would be pre-Christmas. It wouldn’t be the final non-conference game.Do you really think they are going to schedule a post Christmas competitive game? Even in good years, that window is almost always a cupcake.
I'm curious - why rightfully so? The MVC isn't a P6, and it's full of minor schools. Its most successful members of recent vintage have moved on to bigger conferences. I don't see why a home and home is necessary with a Bradley or UNI. Every school wants a home and home, of course...For sure.
Unfortunately, the Gophers rarely schedule MVC teams. I’m guessing most MVC schools (rightfully so) demand a home & home.
That's an innovative approach. There's a lot to like from many angles. The only thing I'd wonder about is whether there are games that would attract more attendance (revenue) that you now are sacrificing a bit. In MN's case, that'd be Mizzou,
Not related to our schedule but given attendance last year and the schedule, thoughts??
