Most Challenging Schedule Ever?


We had a potentially solid Northern Iowa team at home, and still have #17 Iowa State (and possibly Boise St who is receiving votes or other solid teams in Hawaii), Oklahoma and our conference schedule which includes a recently top ten ranked vcu, the strongest GW team in recent memory (receiving votes), #24 UMass, likely soon to be ranked Dayton, plus last years NCAA participants LaSalle and St. Louis who are still somewhat unknown quantities. Not to mention a potentially resurgent ODU team on the road.

I think the answer is yes, Duh. Easily the most difficult schedule our Pat's have ever faced. Hope we are ready to put on our big boy shorts and rise to the challenge. (notice no mention is made of our two most recent opponents)


My concern so far besides the obvious issues, is the lack of putting together 40 minutes. Against teams like that, you cant show up after half time and expect to make a game out of it.

Really its pretty simple, our guys have nothing to lose. Why not go out, ball out and take some games against ranked or upper echelon teams?
