One aspect of non-conference scheduling I'd like to see change ...

... is for us to get off of our Big Britches Syndrome and get Utah State and Weber State back on the schedule. Home and away. It was never really an issue under our previous coaches, and its two teams that are never Q4, and are often Q2 -- sometimes Q1.

There's nothing wrong with playing a road game against any in-state team, save for maybe Southern Utah. There's everything wrong with playing two 340-plus RPI teams at home.

No, such games don't garner huge headlines nationally. Yes, we'd all like to see bigger names come to the JHC. But until we can achieve the latter, getting USU and Weber back on the schedule is a very subtle move that can pay bigger dividends in March.

o NEW: is the scheduling a coaching issue or is it a Chris Hill issue? I suspect it's some of both. (nm)

TheJuggernaut icon NEW: Now that Durryea is out at Utah St I think we'll see Larry more open to scheduling the Aggies in years we don't play them in the Beehive Classic.

utefansince79 icon NEW: One of the more entertaining non-conference games in the Hunty in recent years was the visit by UVU.
