Like the opponents; hate the dates. |
I believe at least one date is wrong as I doubt the team is flying back from Honolulu after the first two Diamond Head games 12.23 to play Holy Cross on 12.24 and then immediate flying back to Homolulu to play the final game 12.25.
If these dates are accurate otherwise, then look for a fairly empty gym most dates-here's a few of the problems as I see it:
Hilltop Challenge is Thanksgiving weekend including first game on Thanksgiving- students are home and most of the rest of us have family responsibilities on Thanksgiving or go away to Tahoe or the wine country for the holiday weekend.
Holy Cross-likely a wrong date but if not this is Christmas Eve
First six league games are during semester break so no students for four home games (BYU, San Diego, Santa Clara and LMU) and two road games students could bus to (St. Mary's and Santa Clara). Three bay area rivalry games with no students. Then when classes start again the team immediately goes on northwest road trip. Someone at the league either dislikes USF or has no comprehension of the athletic finances involved.
Portland- Valentines Day night
Someone will say you can never please these guys but they are missing the point-a lot of us love the Dons and hate missing games
