Horrible home schedule.   Eureka College, Bethume-Cookman, UT Rio Grande Valley, Rogers St, Grambling ST. McNeese St?   Indiana St.  as  the marquee game. 

The away schedule is quite challenging, however this home oc schedule makes Benford's home cupcakes look tough.

Someone better alert Georgetown. Their poster says they play someone else on 12/20.

Damn, Ewing looks rough. 

Can we just consider this a 30 year trial run and just go back to the name that people seem to know?

Who is North Texas State?  Did someone not send a memo out?

We should definitely fire the Georgetown graphic designer that made it.

Considering Mccasland & Arkansas St beat G'Town last year , I'm surprised we got this game 

Contrary to popular belief, Ewing may not in fact be smarter than he looks.

This is the most North Texas revenue sport home schedule that I've ever seen us roll out in either of the main sports here. You won't get 1200 people for any of those OOC games at the Pit.

i think if we beat some good teams on the road the home attendance will be better than what we had last year.

Just curious. Do you only come to games if they play certain teams? 

Support for UNT...your team...has nothing to do with it?

With small kids and a full time job, yes, I make decisions on investing my time simply by seeing if UNT is playing someone that I care about. If they are, I try to make it. If they are playing the names on our non-conference schedule, that isn't a good investment of my time to leave the family or haul them all over to Denton (a good 45 minutes or so away on a good day) to watch us play Jarvis College or Northwood College at the Super Pit. I realize that makes me a bad fan, but the other 8-9k of empty seats suggests that I'm not alone.

A challenge that goes into scheduling higher profile teams for home games is that we'll sadly start off with an RPI in the basement. Programs that care about their RPI for the sake of things like NCAA tournament seeding don't like playing low level schools where there is a risk of losing on the road because it negatively affects their RPI.

Don't know why you think it would make you a bad fan. But, if your conscience makes you feel that way, I suggest you tell it to stop. Solid reasoning in my book.  But, no need for the snarky remark about the number that will be there. 

And, I'd wager right now that average attendance for our home OC games will exceed your 1200 estimate mark even though several will played with students on break, right?  I'm thinking season tickets alone will be above that 1200 mark. New coach and all. Plus, several folks have returned and purchased season tickets that had them in the past...I personally know 4 that are back after a several year "vacation". Fingers crossed.

And, as to the schedule...hoping we can win a bunch of them.

But, we are in CUSA with a pretty low conference RPI. So, twenty wins and a conference championship (not predicting that) will get us post-season zilch unless maybe we buy our way into a minor tourney.  Only way...win the post-season conference tourney I suspect.

They should and will get an attendance  boost of having a new coaching staff.    I was even thinking of getting season tickets again, but there is no way I am going to spend a couple of hours travel to see any of those oc home games.

Few good teams schedule any hard oc away games.  However,  NT is likely considered a very easy away game.  I don't think it has much to do with RPI. if it did NT could not schedule good teams away either.   

It is somewhat confusing that far better football oc schedules are severely criticized by fans.   I assume that there are not enough interested in MBB to even complain about scheduling.   This is a horrible oc schedule to start off hopefully a new era in basketball at NT.

Speaking of which, look at Georgetown's schedule. 1 OOC away game.

Santa does it, without getting paid for the effort on both ends. And he's old.
