This is a year I think I'd like to play tOSU twice.

 

They are a bottom 3.  But we got the other two in that group.   And Penn State/Wisconsin won't be much in front 

we very well may have only one top 6 team there.  Can't ask for more than that IMO

Teams that got Nebraska are probably thinking the same thing.

Seems like its been said the last few years but it's been 20 years since we had a team with this type of talent from top to bottom on it.

If i'm crunching the numbers correctly we're looking at

 

Away - Purdue, Michigan, NW, Ohio St

Home - Maryland, Mich St, Iowa, Indiana

 

Would rather have Michigan State on the road, switched with Purdue/Michigan/Northwestern.  MSU would be extremely tough home or away, and any of the other three would go from being not favored on the road to being at least a toss-up at home.

On paper, before we know how they're stacked up, is this the most balanced schedule NU's had in the Big Ten?

How do you define balanced?

Roughly equal number of good games vs. good teams at home and on the road and vice versa for bad teams.

 

I could be wrong on this, just my initial impression.

UCF should be a solid test for us.  They return 3 of their top 4 players from a team that beat Illinois last season in the NIT Quarterfinals.  Plus, they have a couple of transfers now eligible including Aubrey Dawkins who transferred from Michigan, and a redshirt sophomore kid who averaged about 10 pts and 3.5 assists in one season at Drexel.

 

And they have a bunch of guys with size even if Tacko falls.
