Not a good schedule to have a bad year in. No really good teams. Can't afford to really lose any of those and make the tourney.

I think everyone is still burned by our inconsistent play from last year.

With an optimistic outlook we have the following strengths:

-Upperclassmen guards
-Outside threats, driving threats and at least one inside threat
-Big Man depth-we have the bodies to compete on the boards and defensively
-Our defensive effort and cohesiveness has no where to go but up

It could be a recipe for a 24-25 win season.

The schedules for the last few seasons have been of the same caliber. We aren't going to go dancing based on key wins. We'll go dancing based on how long our winning streak is.

Honestly, I kind of think these weak schedules are a reflection of being in the WCC and not going dancing. A top team wants to schedule other top teams to boost their RPI and chances of going dancing. BYU can't offer that. We're in a weak conference and we're losing a lot more lately than we have in the past. We had tougher schedule with more marques games in the MWC.

I'm very disappointed to have Mika gone, he was one of my favorite BYU players ever and I was very high on him. But I did confirm my season seat selection yesterday and I'm still looking forward to this season! I'm excited for the Illinois St. game because both of my parents attended there. They had a pretty good team last season.
