Shaping up really well for a team that SHOULD be built to make a big run

Wouldn't be a bad year to get season tickets. Been dragging my feet since I live in Chatham.

Jeez, that'd be a hell of a home non-con schedule. I like the potential team we'd be fielding next year too. I agree with Redbird Alum, I need season tix (I live in town, just dragging my feet because of my wallet)

I'm not getting my hopes up. Every time they are positioned to have a great team there is a key player that leaves. This season was Hawkins and McIntosh. Before that was Lynch and before that was Moore. The 'Birds were poised to make the NCAA tournaments each of those next seasons. I'm sure at least one key piece will transfer in the offseason.

I believe this is the first that I had heard BYU was a home and home. I thought it was a buy game. Great to hear. 2 good H/H signed this year.

Redbird Athletics has a program that allows you to split the cost of your season tics into 3 or 4 payments over 3 or 4 months (not sure which it is?) . Makes it much easier to do!

I do this for football and it works just fine. I'll do it next season for sure, but I'm also coaching high school hockey right now and we started our conference games that are mostly on Wednesday nights out of town so season tix aren't worth the investment this year either.

that's awesome. good lineup so far. plus a lot of great home games. muller no doubt set it up that way knowing this year they would struggle and next season they'll be good and also have a ton of home games, where they are even better. the 'birds will be ranked next season barring any major transfers.

oh i'm hoping this is the case. I am struggling to buy in seeing us at the bottom of the conference standings right now... but i will agree with those saying muller knows what hes doing if he can retain the talent.

Jank's head would've exploded if he had that schedule.
When you have low expectations for Illinois State University, the history of its leadership looks much more palatable.

Great slate. Perhaps the best non-con home schedule in the history of Redbird Arena.

I'm no where near giving up on this season, lot of basketball to be played, especially with the expected soon return of some reinforcements. Does anyone have any further insight regarding this tourney in the Cayman Islands, looks like a nice field, from who is listed so far and a nice place to be late November watching the 'Birds. I broke down and went to Cancun a few years back, lost both games (Maryland and TCU), but a great time.

According to the tournament's Wikipedia page ISU will be a part of it. It will be the second year of the tournament. Of the three teams yet to be named at least one will be from the Mountain West as they host the tournament. If you scroll down past the results of the 2017 tournament it lists the 2018 participants.
