One Toe Back In -- The 2008 Non-Conference Schedule

Publication Date: December 20, 2007

I'm not quite ready to start writing again yet, but, just to get the conversation and the juices flowing again, here's the 2008 non-conference schedule for games between teams that finished in the top 50 in ISR last year. One obvious result of the new scheduling restrictions is the growth of the four-game series -- I count at least a half-dozen here. Just looking at the number of series here, there are actually more than were scheduled last year, but I haven't counted to see if that encompasses more or fewer games -- Ockham's Razor would argue for more games, if anything, because there are fewer travel days available.
