Kentucky is backing out, but GU already has a trip to Boston planned in that close time frame... same site even.

Wouldn't it be nice to add another decent school back east?

I'd rather not.

We already have St. Joe's in Philly to go with our game in Boston vs UConn. To add UMass would be to add another trip back east. After last season, no thanks. And UMass and St. Joe's are in the same conference, too. Traveling to Stillwater (possibly) and Memphis are more than enough to go with Philly and Boston.

Yeah, but we already have St. Joe's. 3 games back East might be stretching it for one trip. Didn't we learn that lesson last season?

Edit: Crap, BZ faster on the draw than I am. Now I look silly and repetetive. Oh well.

And I was just on the Kentucky site. One fan mentions Gonzaga as one of the OOC matchups he would like to see. I would take the Wildcats over Umass.
