Considering we had the 13th toughest OOC schedule last year I would imagine we will at least be top 50 this year. Preferably top 25 again.

UCF must have felt guilty after the gift the official gave them the last time we played them.

This is great. We have to actually win the games. At least 3 or 4 of them. But at least Muller is giving us a shot. Jankovich never did.

We lose four starters, maybe their fans are saying same thing about Redbirds.

This schedule is turning out to be no joke at all. Muller certainly seems to understand that to make the field of 64, he is going to need to have a T100 OOC SOS.
If you're us? T25 OOC SOS and one defeated going into conference play, two or three losses MAX in conference, make it to Sunday at the Arch, and lose by 1 pt on a buzzer beater. Then we might be on the bubble. :lol:

Been burned too many times to leave it up to chance. Win Sunday in STL. The rest is just a tune up for our play-in tournament in March.

I do LOVE having a tough sos though, makes us more relevant in recruiting. "You are going to play against some of the best teams in the country. Everyone loves a cinderella story, we can do that."

Gotta think a buy game is in there somewhere. Last season we have 6 home games (including the exhibition), four away games, and three neutral site. So, we hopefully only have 2 home games left and the other 4 games to be scheduled are quality road games. The two home games remaining are likely Quincy/Lewis or teams of that nature.
At this point, I'm not sure there are four quality road games to be had, so I would settle for 2 buy games on the road and then two lesser D1 at home (Charleston Southern-like). It seems this season we aren't going to have a ton of road experience headed into MVC play.

Yeesh. 6-8 games vs T100 opponents before we even see a much improves SIU squad, a potential T75 Bradley team and, of course, Loyola twice.

I like it. Very few chumps.

Love it. Anyone for a "Redbirds take over the Greek Islands" lunch before the game? Nothing better than watching ISU pound ass while full of lamb and blitzed on Roditys.

Y'all know that last years rpi means nada. Teams fall off the radar all the time (i.e. St. Joe's, Murray State, for example)

past performance is no guarantee of future results ...

Hearing the same and starting on the road. Another name opponent that had a similar season as ISU. Identical records, actually. Happy researching :)

1-VCU
2-Fort Wayne
3-LSU :lol:
4-Georgia :lol:

Only other school that finished 18-15 is Missouri State and I'm hearing we have a home-home with them this season.

I'm sure it's VCU.... Fort Wayne would be a waste.
