    Quite amusing... lived in Ft. Myers, FL when Florida Gulf Coast became a "university." Prior to that pronouncement, that institution was a community college. Blue Devils ramping up their schedule this year with a former community college! Tough scheduling.....gonna go to their place next year? It's alot like Hansbrough Indoor arena: holds about 2800 fans. LOL....that's what virtually everyone does for a few games prior to beginning conference play.

    Texas (one of UNC's tough non-conference opponents) goes down to Chaminade.

    For the first time in 10-15 years Butler has a dominate team! If they had this team a few years ago.............

    I'm just glad Roy didn't schedule that powerhouse Lehigh this year.

    Oh. So UNC plays at Indiana and at Texas and at Long Beach State while playing a rematch with UNLV but this time in Chapel Hill. Oh, and the only reason why UNC isn't playing Kentucky is because Kentucky backed out for this year only. And that is considered a WEAK schedule.

    Yeah, that makes sense, if you are Cheech and Chong. Actually, I've seen better arguments from the people on Cops who were caught in the act.

    Oh, and look who UNC might have to play in Maui: Texas, Butler, Marquette, Illinois, USC (the real one in California).

    How is playing the number 1 team in the country - in their house - "weak"? Can't get much tougher than playing the #1 team, on the road.

    UNC- @LBS, @ Indiana, @ Texas, UNLV

    State- Mich, Uconn

    Duke- Kent,Ohio St

    Exactly why do you think State has a tougher non-conference sch???

    UNC also plays a TRUE road game this Friday @Long Beach State. Any other ACC school playing a mid major, in their arena? Doubt it.

    I don't see a lot of difference in the non-conference portion for UNC or Duke this year. Duke traditionally has a harder schedule than the Heels, and that probably comes from Hucklebery's longtime practice of scheduling cupcakes like he did at Kansas. I AM NOT A STATE FAN, but will say that State has the hardest NON-Conference schedule of the 3 schools this year.

    Ditto on the end thread....there should be a small IQ test you should have to take to start a thread. But then there would be so very little to read on this site.

    LOL, Kentucky is over rated and you play not a single OOC game away.
    UNC on the other hand plays #1 Indiana at Indiana.

    End thread.

    While Duke is playing #3 Kentucky, #4 Ohio St and possibly #2 Louisville in the Battle 4 Atlantis, UNC is playing Gardner Webb. Hey dooksucks-- what were you saying about non-conference schedules again??
