I don't know if this is the best forum...but I didn't want to start a new one. With the way that X has shown up. And with our great season (even in a "rebuilding" year), I think everyone takes the Big East seriously. Heck we got 70% of our teams into the tournament. I would really like to see that evolve into some great out of conference games for the Dawgs. It would be fun to see us replace some of our weaker games with some bigger games. Maybe play Michigan State instead of Northern Colorado, or West Virginia instead of Norfolk State. I know that Northern Colorado and Norfolk State are good home games for us and give us a chance to fill Hinkle and a good guarantee of a win. And I know our SOS was already very good and our RPI was already very good. But the bigger the game...the more attention it gets...and the more recruits see us...and the more opportunities we have to show how good we are... Just my thoughts...trying to do something to occupy my next 9 hours.
