New, 1 comment

Predictably it is not easy in the least. Earlier today word about UC's mirror opponents was released. That was in advance of the rest of the Big East games. Well it is later and the the opponents and sites for UC have been released.

2011-12 BIG EAST Conference Opponents
Home Games
DePaul
Louisville
Marquette*
Notre Dame
Providence
St. John’s*
Seton Hall
Syracuse
Villanova*

Away Games
Connecticut
Georgetown
Marquette*
Pittsburgh
Rutgers
St. John’s*
USF
Villanova*
West Virginia

* - Home-and-home series

The early take? That is a redonkulus away schedule. The only true gimme in the bunch is USF. Rutgers would be in that category last year. This coming season? Who knows, that could be a tough, tough game to navigate. Also having to go to the Peterson Events Center in back to back years. Not cool Big East, not cool at all. On the other hand the Home schedule while certainly not easy, isn't exactly terrifying. I like getting Louisville at Fifth Third Arena again. Whats your take?
