Interesting read on mid major teams coming together to work on scheduling. I wonder if any CAA teams will be involved.

What would be the negatives to joining the Alliance? If no significant negatives, UD should jump at this opportunity to improve their non-conference schedule.

Back to double post I see, it's called patience or you need to upgrade your computer and get rid of dial up!!! :lol: :lol:

Something was tried a few years ago called the bracket busters. That didn't last but the idea was good.

This appears to be somewhat similar.

But I do agree, can't hurt to join
2018.....I already know I should have been named Richard

I really like Mark Adams. Not only is he pro mid-major, he is a very good color commentator. I used to love Bracket Buster weekend. Had it not been for George Mason’s Brackt Buster win over Wichita State in 2006 it is doubtful that the Patriots get an at-large NCAA bid and ultimately a trip to the FIinal Four. I always dreamed of our Hens hosting a good MVC team at the BOB as part of Brackt Busters.

My mind is focused on the NDSU football game coming up on ESPN+, but anything that can enhance our basketball sounds outstanding to me. We all know that the more impressive schedule we play will attract better quality recruits.

go for it!!!

edit- 9/23- forget about the NDSU debacle :oops:
Keep the faith kick butt go Hens
