Maybe Bobzag already put this out and I missed it.

Well I guess this means we won't have to argue about whether we'll be playing BYU ;)

Is UConn supposed to be any good this year?

I thought Memphis was going to be the BiS opponent in 2008. Does this mean that Memphis is going to play in Spokane again in 2008, or are they going to postpone the last game of the four game series until 2009?

Memphis will play in Spokane in 2008/09. Not sure if it will be at K2 or Spokane Arena.

I expect UConn to make it back to the NCAA tourney this year, but I doubt they'll be a top 10 team or anything like that. It'll depend on how the Big East is this year. The problem with that league for the Huskies is that they are one of the teams that gets screwed over by the scheduling as they usually have to play the best teams twice (due to TV), which means that they only get to play the bottom feeders (South Florida, etc.) once. I think they will be improved enough to win more of the games against the top dogs.

I saw this in the Spokesman review this morning as well.
Even though the Huskies may not be a top 10 team this year, I imagine they will be in the top 25 both this year and next, which is always a good boost to our strength of schedule.
Continues to be good news for our program that big names are willing to travel across the US to play us in the BIS! :)

I knew we'd play the Huskies in Seattle again. Way to step up Romar.
