    I’m all for a rough nonconference schedule and a neutral game site. But 3 of them? As a season ticket holder, it hurts not having marquee HOME games, as they are all in neutral sites now. Prices keep going up, so give me my upper chairbacks and marquee HOME games.

      Couple of things on this. 1) It’s just how it is: Every other year you get Louisville at home and then the SEC/Big 12. Last year you got those + UCLA.

      2) The tournament is played on a neutral court so we need as much neutral court experience as possible. Traveling, practicing, playing on neutral court gets the team ready for the tournament more than marquee home games

      3) To get a “marquee home game” you have to play them on the road also. The neutral site games are more appealing for that reason and #2 above.

      How about you stop your whining or give up those season tickets to someone who would appreciate them.

    I just hope no one gets hit in the head with a battery at the WVU game!

    WV fans are the worst. Well, then and Missouri. Both talk a lot and having absolutely nothing in the hardware case to show for it.
