Murray State on schedule for this year, per Durando. Sorry if already posted. 

that's a good game. 

I don't know the entire schedule, but I feel like it's shaping up to be pretty good.

11/10: Seattle

11/16: Virginia Tech @2k Classic in NYC

11/17: Providence/Washington @2k Classic in NYC

11/22: Detroit

12/2: @Butler

12/6: SIUC

12/9: Houston

12/22: SEMO

TBA: Murray State

Stu says the schedule is "expected in the next couple days", which would be early. Maybe he just means the non-conference schedule. Full schedule has been late August/early September, typically.

Usually a solid program, but had an RPI of 229 last year. Hopefully better this year. Of note, they beat a good Illinois State squad in the opening game of last season - may have been the game that knocked ISU off the bubble - those November and December games matter too.

Looking forward to about 6 years of this this starting the end of the month.

Good luck, do  not worry about  losing weight early on, it is the stress of grad school, not the ramens, you will survive and do fine. Try adding other stuff to the noodles for a change in taste.

Talked to a friend of mine who is a big booster for Murray.  He said Murray will be much better this year.  Will be a tough game.  Great home game.

Do you not have just the board bookmarked? I rarely go to the front page and I'm sure many are the same as me.

When does the 1st semester end? Wouldn't Graves be eligible immediately after that?

I am surprised that we didn't get a second game out West to couple with Or. St.  That is a long way to go for just one game.

I'm glad to see a second game before we go to NYC, even if it is Rockhurst.  At least it will give the team one more chance to jell before kicking some Va Tech butt.

I know someone will start a separate Record thread, but I see 11-2 OOC, and yes that includes Rockhurst!

Sorry to offend you, one of the great all-time Billiken.com posters!

Maybe I should have added to the discussion of JG being promised a starting spot at PG or having to earn it:P

Extremely disappointed that we continue to play Rockhurst.....no other Jesuit schools to play?

Better to play a d2 opponent that doesn't hurt the rpi then a 300-350 rpi d1 team is the logic.

NBD.  It gives us another early game to help develop as a team before going to NYC.  It was probably difficult trying to get a soft game that early in November where TF could play a number of combinations to see what is working best before Va Tech. 

The only problem I see is that we will once again spend pages and pages having to discuss if our record (and Billiken.com record predictions) include the Rockhurst game

I will amend my earlier 11-2 OOC record prediction with a 12-6 A-10 record which means we will go into the A 10 Conference Tournament with a 23-8 record.  And yes that includes Rockhurst, so for you D1 only purists that would be 22-8.  Just a bit better than last year;)

OOC 10-3

Losses to VT, Butler and then a home hiccup. 

No Hiccup.  The Fetz will rock!

+1. It amazes me that people still struggle with this.
