Some people don't think that playing WVU is big news anyway.

Will we have WVU at the Mohegan next year or vice versa?

I still haven't seen anything official about WVU. Just here. Is it a done deal?

Rothstein makes it sound like this will be a one-time neutral court game, not a home-and-"home" as we have previously thought.

If this is a one time neutral court, this is an even bigger win for our basketball team/admin as we will get credit for a Neutral court game 35 minutes from our campus with no payback!

That's the way I read it, which would be massive if true.

How is this news any different than playing the tourney this year vs Seton Hall and Virginia, or playing Cincinnati and Duke at Mohegan last year? Am I missing something?

If Rothstein's FanRagSports announcement was the "Big New" wouldn't you think Birdman would have had it out there too or at least a comment on it?

Although I do agree Hurley has turned the corner and could turn URI into the Gonzaga of the East.

This thread wasn't started by Birdman. Birdman is also not a reporter, he is just a fan like the rest of us. Why would Birdman have a comment or put it out there before it was officially announced if he said from the start he couldn't say anything more about it?

If you put out information that was told to you in confidence, you lose your source. Pretty simple.

Agree it's that simple, so why did he do it? and as many of us have said all along it wasn't all that big a story anyway. But this thread continues

I guess we're so great now that playing a top 10 team isn't a big deal anymore.

So us spending a day at an RPI of 9 is enough for you to turn your nose up at getting a perennial top 10 team on the schedule?

It’s still WV? I’m lost on your statement here.

It's just me Blueman. I hate West Virginia and Huggins and their fans. I'm glad we're not giving them a home if that's what it is. I hope we kick the shit out of them.

Getting this game is fantastic...can't wait to see it happen. The more often they get games like this the better obviously.
I don't look at the one neutral as better than a neutral and away, though. Would like to see them play teams like this wherever, whenever possible.

This thread just seemed awfully long (even without my posts), for news that was practically public back in October...

It’s good but not worth the 10 pages and 450 posts

And still nobody knows for sure if this was the news

Maybe it wasn’t and this really isn’t over yet? :lol: :lol:

Although it ended up better than a home and neutral. So It was big news forthcoming.

But we got a good number of pages here and on the future scheduling page complaining about WVU getting a true home game and URI getting screwed with the Mohegan Sun
Turns out looking like that info wasn’t true either if Rothstein is right as it’s only one game at the Mohegan Sun.
From what we know of yet.

That's cool we got the game next year at Mohegan

I wouldn't mind if we traveled to WVU the following year that would help the Ooc by a lot
