    Looks like the non-conference schedule is basically set. We only need to know the opponent for the game in Sunrise.

    The conference schedule is the opposite. All we know for sure is that we are playing Kentucky twice. I can't remember another time that we've gotten the schedule in this order.

    Fun slate. Those first three weeks in December will tell us a lot about the team early.

    My only gripe is why play North Florida and Jacksonville? They both finished with sub-200 RPI's last year. Doesn't help us at all.

    A couple reasons for this, I suspect. One is that they don't have to travel far, so there is more profit to them, meaning we don't have to pay as much (and given how poor our gates are during football season, that is probably a considerable benefit to us, too). Another is that every game doesn't have to help our RPI. A couple of easy wins over very bad teams when we get to try out some different personnel combinations, extend the rotation, and get the end of the bench some minutes can help you as a team, even where it might not help your RPI. I think given strength of our schedule that won't be a concern anyway.

    I don't have a problem playing the in-state schools....I think it's good for us and we always try to play a few games around the state, so playing JU in Jacksonville is a good thing.
    i
    The one I don't get is Savannah State....if we need a late-Dec low-RPI game, i'd rather see us playing Stetson, FIU, or Bethune.

    Actually Savannah State had a top 200 RPI while Stetson and Bethune did not. FIU was 111. Have no clue what Savannah State brings back but hopefully enough to have a top 200 RPI again.

    Coaches will often schedule lower tier teams who play unique or challenging styles you might see later in the year from better teams. Now, I have no earthly idea what sort of style UNF and JU play, but playing, for example, a lower tier team that presses every possession and runs up and down the court might be a little useful when we come to Arkansas on our schedule.

    I am guessing that playing Jax in Jax is for Patric.

    That would be my guess as well and it makes the most sense...



    Also, we're not playing JU at JU, we're just playing them in Jax and it should be as much of a home game for us as for them.

    Wisconsin on the road, ugggh/tough, Kansas at Home, great out of conference game to show the nation, the Gators are tough, Memphis, always good, another out of conference game the whole nation will see what we are made of. This is a good reason we need a full roster this year, to keep healthy players on the floor as these three teams along with all others will be wanting to knock off the Gators. Great schedule and a long year to make it all the way to the final four!

    Wow, that is one tough schedule. Usually that is a sign of what Coach Donovan expects out of the team.

    ESPN just updated their annual tip off marathon. We are playing at Wisconsin at 9pm on ESPN 2. We are sandwiched between some really good games on ESPN including MSU/UK and Duke/KU.

    Thanks dalwood for the update. Heard the entire schedule is set to be announced within the next week to ten days. SEC teams are much better this season IMO. Quite possible we could get 6-7 teams in the big dance - which would be nice for a change!
