Played at NIU last year. Do we get a home game with them this year?

Update: ALL matchups with Illinois public schools should be home and home affairs, including games with the Flagship U.
Does not have to be within same year, but within a couple of years. If it takes an act from the state legislatiure to make it so, so be it.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Schedule announced today. Who got the over/under for Oct. 2?

Beware of Central Christian. Most of the team is under 5'10" so they might be really really quick or get lost hiding behind the big guy in the middle. :lol:

I've started to see a few things pop up about next year's basketball schedule, so I've updated the first post of this thread with that info: https://www.leathernecknation.net/forum ... 966#p15966

So far, we've got:
game against a horizon league team (opponent TBD) as the start of the Horizon/Summit Series: https://www.thesummitleague.org/sports/ ... 0307or2zb6
rematch of one of our few wins from last year against Ball State on 12/2 (the thing I read said it was at their place, but idk if that's 100% accurate)
game at EIU on 12/12 (I'd assume also a home game against EIU at some point...we usually do a H&H with them nearly every year)
and a just-announced 2-year series against Miami (OH) where we play the first game there on 12/21



If anyone sees any other updates, please post them here so I can get our "tentative" schedule updated.

It's a little hard to make out from the image, but it looks like this is our conference schedule. Each weekend there will be games on back to back days. The first weekend is Sat/Sun, but the rest are Fri/Sat.

Jan 2/3 - vs North Dakota State
Jan 8/9 - @ South Dakota State
Jan 15/16 - Kansas City
Jan 22/23 - South Dakota
Jan 29/30 - @ North Dakota
Feb 5/6 - @ Nebraska-Omaha
Feb 12/13 - Denver
Feb 19/20 - Bye
Feb 26/27 - @ Oral Roberts

Games on back-to-back days might be a little tough from a fatigue standpoint, but I figure it's not really much different than a couple of games in a conference tournament. Plus, there will be a full week off between the set of games, so there's plenty of time to rest up.
