Conference Schedule Announcement Later Today

Recommended Posts

The Big Ten will announce the conference portion of the basketball schedule later this afternoon on BTN (4:30 ET/3:30 CT). I certainly hope we get a better schedule than we had last year because I'm going to be cranky if we end up with a lot of Sunday night games and no Saturday home conference games. I don't mind an occasional Sunday afternoon game but Sunday night at 8:00 PM is just stupid and makes it hard for those who drive in from out of town as I do. I honestly think if we end up with a bunch of Sunday night games again I may have to re-evaluate whether I continue to renew my season tickets in 2018-2019. I'm not getting any younger and I don't have any problem driving at night but I still work and get up at 5:00 AM to do so and getting home from Lincoln at 11:00 at night makes for a short night of sleep.

Shon Morris just said his top 3 teams in the league are MSU, Minny & NW - guess who our first 3 games are with? Sheesh.

 

Brutal early, but if we can survive till February, finishing with 4 out of last 5 at home is about as favorable as it can be down the stretch.

Big 10 tourney is a week earlier this year.

 

And it's a week earlier because the B1G league tourney is at Madison Square Garden this year, which annually hosts the Big East tournament during the prime date slots.

We have 2 non-conference home games on Friday in December (22nd & 29th), no in conference home games on Friday. As for Saturday we have 2 home conference games on Saturday (Iowa and Rutgers). I can live with Friday night home games it's the Sunday games that start at 8:00 PM that drive me nuts, it's a school night (I'm too old for that) and the next day is a work day (which I still do) and it's hard getting home from Lincoln at around 11:15 then having to get up at 5:00 to get ready for work (this would apply to weeknights too).

Im thinking we will be lucky to win any of those first 4 big 10 games.  That's okay though we started 3-0 last year and look where that got us....  Really liking the end of our schedule..
