    I haven't really looked through the roster with any sort of detail, but I'm not super optimistic about this season.

    Virginia Tech and Florida State on the road only is unfortunate. Not having to visit Notre Dame is a positive for anyone who's watched Louisville basketball for the last decade.

    Home and home with Virginia, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Boston College.

    The non-conference as got to as tough as anyones. Didn't Seton Hall beat Duke last year or am I thinking of St. Johns. For some reason I always get those two schools confused. There is really only about 7 games on the schedule that I would consider easy.

    Tennessee, Kansas, Michigan State, and Kentucky in the non conference is really tough. Those 4 are all possible top 10 teams.

    That’s got to be the toughest out of conference slate since Denny was still sitting on the bench.

    UVa 2x in the last 2 weeks of the regular season should be fun. Gouge out my eyes with a melon baller.

    Even though they consistently crush our souls (rather dramatically, and now even in football (lol)) – I will forever take solace they were the first 1 seed to ever lose the 1st round of the tourney.

    I've been there several times. Great place to watch a game. The Mrs. actually has season tickets at the Bucket via her company.

    It’s going to be challenging. I’m still looking very forward to watching.
