*** 17 games in 2016-17 instead of the 19 NU played at PBA last year. Both numbers include the annual exhibition game. ***
 
 
*** It's official now, South Dakota will be on the Huskers schedule in 2016-17. Word from Tim Miles indicates that Nebraska may be willing to travel to South Dakota for a future game, although it wasn't definite that the game would involve USD. More likely to involve an early-season tourney in Sioux Falls... (via John Gaskins interview with Tim Miles in early June 2016).

 

*** Potential secret scrimmage 2-year series with Iowa State (as per BR tweet on 7/14/16)

Could you pin this thread, dimes?

 

 

That's a pretty good lineup...I don't know anything about Northridge but Va Tech should be much improved by next year and the remaining teams are all big dance worthy.

It won't look anything like that when the games are played.

Considering it's a year away, of course.  It will be interesting (and entertaining) to pull up this thread at the time of Wooden Classic.

We seem to have been assigned to a number of tourneys with New Mexico lately, but never play them.  Maybe this time we will.  Would be an interesting matchup if Harriman is still on the staff.

So, the past two years, NU has had home and homes vs. NW, PSU, Purdue, Rutgers, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maryland and Illinois. Presumably that means we'll see home and homes vs. MSU, Michigan and OSU. It will be interesting to see who the other two are.

Considering what we know about the schedule next year and if the rumors are true about the big matchup with a Big 12 team are true, next seasons schedule could be pretty entertaining.

Nebraska has played only once against MSU three straight years. There is no scenario that covers the schedule in a 14-team league from year-to-year. It literally is an ever-evolving year by year situation. No rhyme or reason, seemingly...

I'm not so sure about that. I don't think it's random scheduling. I think it's simply that they started over when they added Rutgers and Maryland.

Of course they started over. 14-team leagues are unwieldy. The 12-team scheduling was perfect, 14 not so much.

That doesn't mean there's not a pattern to how they're scheduling things.

It's not a pattern that's discernible; is that better? ;)

Not exactly

 

Based on the current pattern:

Locks

 

Michigan, Ohio St, and Michigan St twice next year.

Indiana, Northwestern, and Rutgers away only

Penn St and Purdue home only

 

The rest

 

Out of Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin we play 1 of them Home and Away. The other two teams we play home only.

Out of Maryland and Minnesota we play 1 of them Home and Away. The other team we play Away only.

Much like what I've written earlier, this also appears to not be entirely discernible...  :huh:  :P  B)  :unsure:  :blink:  :lol:

I know you're somewhat joking, but to put it into words

 

Every year you play 18 games against 13 teams.

5 Home and Aways (10 games against 5 teams)

8 games either home or away (8 games against 8 teams)

 

Whatever teams you played home and away one year you won't play home and away the next.

And you'll play h/h with every time 5 times every 13 years...assuming the B1G stays at 14 teams.

That would be the smart way to do it, but that's also giving the B1G scheduler quite a bit of credit for thinking ahead.  ;) Hopefully that's how they're doing it.

 

An even easier way to do it would be to give each team a home and home "rival" - say NU and Iowa, Minny & Wisky, Indiana & Purdue, etc. You'd play your rival home and home every year. Then you'd play 4 of the other 12 teams home and home once every three years. Much simpler formula and better schedule. It's not good that we've only had Iowa at PBA once in 3 years - we should be playing Iowa home and home every year.

Part of that was we started this schedule clean 2 years ago. We should have Iowa at home 2 out of every 3 years going forward.
