Why donít we play a big time schedule anymore ?
« on: December 01, 2020, 06:40:36 PM »
I know this isnít the year to really be complaining about this but even before the pandemic changed schedule , this years schedule wasnít loaded . The only big team I can think of that weíve played in the last 5 years is Gonzaga .

Just looking at the 2 games tonite , it just never seems that zona never  plays a big national game like Duke , Kentucky or Kansas anymore .   

I know you need to play a few cupcakes to start but Iíd like to see more high profile games like Lute  used to do

Miller has scheduled 19 teams in OOC who have been ranked since he got to AZ in '09.

19 ranked opponents outta 142 games. Only 8 have been top ten teams. In 11 yrs.

He last beat a ranked OOC opponent in Dec '17.

His record vs these 19 ranked teams is 9-10.

Miller and the AD have a mid-major mentality.....

Both Gonzaga and Illinois were Top 5 teams on the schedule until everything fell apart.

We also dropped from the NIT tip-off, a tourney that included Texas Tech (who was ranked in the preseason).

Unless espn hooks you up in a neutral site, nobody can schedule like Lute did. It was tons of fun when he was around. These days, coaches are scared to go on the road...and our fans complain less as the season progresses because they recognize that Reynolds does a pretty good job of being competitive in the OOC.
