Would WINNING LOTS of home OOC games help attendance.................................????   Just asking!    ;)

Combination of recruiting success, plenty of home OOC wins and the marketing of these players who are having this on court success could be a recipe for raising attendance!

WHEN IT EFFECTS THE PLAY (that is, negating a clear and obvious out) THEN it should be obstruction!!!!
If the play is unaffected, it does not matter where the runner puts his hands! 
Effect is everything in officiating a sporting effect!

Get the rule book out........ >:(................. :'(

WHY do not the umps discuss an unusual play (that decides a game) as a group THEN make a final decision. Also, you may need a ump video review to have someone explain exactly what happened and exactly where the ball hit the runner and explain the location of the runners arm! 
In short.............make an effort to get it correct!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 2 cents. Not Cupcake Man's  8)  (he is going to sit this post out!)
I don't judge an OOC schedule by what the selection committee likes. I start to shake a little (make that a lot) just thinking of the "selection"  process.

Knowing that AFTER the OOC we must play 18+ games in the toughest basketball conference in the nation I judge an OOC schedule by how much I think the schedule will help the players and team grow/develop as players and as a team. I am a HUGE believer in the "Nothing succeeds like success" theory. I've seen it work wonders in many different circumstances! 

How is this OOC schedule? I don't like the only 7 games at the BJC. BUT, I guess the schedule is not terrible.I will have to see who we play in Charlestown to finalize my opinion. I generally do not like these types of events.

I like PC. I like this team. This team will be extremely "interesting" to watch! I believe we have 11-12 guys who will expect to start or have serious PT. Thus it may take some time to work out the rotations.
How will the team play out??...I don't know. BUT I believe the team will have to grow and develop to be a winning league team. Winning OOC games, no matter of the quality of the opponent,  is the best way to grow/develop!! 

P.S. Winning OOC games has a good chance to put fannies in the seats!

Very happy with the schedule. I want wins.

Fingers crossed
I don't follow others teams as closely as in the past but it seems to me Akron has been darn good recently!  I looked....115 wins in the last 5 years. 5 post seasons including 2 NCAAs. Also Drexel won 16 games last year. Losing AT UCLA by 5 and AT Zona by 4. Looks to me they only played 12 games in their home gym.

Still watching and hoping,

Independence Hall and the Philly skyline!!That's kind of a cross between Chambers Era and Tundra!!!

Well, I have seen the play to top all plays......................WALKING into a double play!     :-[

I think everything would have to fall perfectly right for the Bucs to acquire Lester. That is having the Red Sox value a couple of guys the Bucs would be happy (maybe not publicly)
 to move. I see this as a very long shot! 
I think we end up with a bullpen guy.

My 2 cents is that they'll lift the sanctions as fast as they can because they know that they are indefensible.  By dropping them now they can remove some media spotlight and make the lawsuits against them seem petty and trivial.

2 more cents:
I hope all sanctions are dropped but I don't think they will be................... I think the NCAA is very image oriented.  They think they believe their actions against tosu, So Cal and PSU are perceived as "good/strong national images."  Miami and NC issues are "bad national images."  tosu and So Cal actions are mostly forgotten.  I think they want the words "PSU and sanctions" mentioned in the news long and often for the next couple of years! Alas, PSU is their current poster child for their enforcement power, which is under attack on many fronts.

Get both scholarships and a bowl game back.

My 2 cents:
Wishful.................BUT I don't see them going that route. They would lose too much face. Plus, I believe they want to drag this out as long as they can to try to show how "really concerned" they are! It's their landmark enforcement and they want to milk every possible minute out of it! 

I visited an on campus OU store about 25 years ago. I remember being surprised at the large number of T-Shirts discussing the OU-UT game!
Seemed like a true rivalry!!

Kinda stinks for Bucknell if we are their "big" game on the home schedule and it comes over thanksgiving break.

The game will still be a sellout! In fact BU will be allowing their hoops season ticket holders to buy up to 4 more tickets to the PSU game before those tickets go on sale to the general public.

Someone remind me WHY we are playing AT Bucknell????

He's been blowing up the last few weeks since his performance here. Iowa and Nebraska want him. 

I compare him to a young Kevin Love!

Some video of Sehic.

I think it's a good video!  Looks like a quality player to me. Great outlet passer!

The rest are from PA or somewhere along the I95 corridor from northern VA to NYC.  That's something new to me as far as our team and I think that is a very good thing going forward if we can keep that momentum going.

Agree!  PSU is a perfect location for a hoop program!
