My 2 cents. Not Cupcake Man's
(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!
