We should do the Big East or ACC challenge late in the year

Recommended Posts

I have been thinking it for a while.

 

It sucks that we play Creighton early in the year because Miles teams get better as the year goes on and McDermotts get worse.

 

Same thing with the challenges, teams are different in February than they are in November or December.

 

Conference rpis are locked in one conference play starts and that shouldn't be the case.

 

Remember bracket Busters?

 

I would love if the big East or ACC challenge was a like vs like determined the week before. i.e. Acc 1 plays B1G 1.

There's only so much space in a schedule. If you push those games to later in the year, you're only pushing conference play earlier toward Thanksgiving territory. Then the whole argument of "we get better later on" starts to hurt us in the Big Ten standings where it starts to matter more.

I am fine with playing conference games earlier.

Ultimately conference standings don't mean anything in basketball other than as fodder for media and fans to talk about.

The committee has said over and over that conference standings aren't even on a teams resume.
