It’s a brutal schedule, but luckily only 2 of those road series are what I would call difficult. Our home schedule is very favorable in the sense that we play most of our tough series at home.

I'm guessing they are having a hard time finding teams that are willing to play them. I don't think non conference will be much tougher, especially early. They have to figure out who is going to be the starters and you don't want to have to do or die every game while you are figuring that out. Plus conference schedule is tougher so you want to switch off some wins. I'm just thinking that a lot of teams do not want to play last years #1 team for most of the season. Especially at LNS and don't think other than Arizona we will go anywhere else to play.. Except maybe Smokies again.

Gonzaga and the tournament in Arizona are 2 of the 4 non conference series. What quality do you think the other 2 series will be? You think we play Georgia Southern again?

Under past coaching staffs, we would play a few mid week games on the road. It’s pretty rare now with Vitello to travel mid week. Is this due to field conditions? Or would smaller teams prefer the guaranteed money and come to Knoxville?

Because the atmosphere at many of these are horrible. Why would you go through hassle of road trips during the week when you don’t have to? Western Carolina was a nightmare 2 years ago from every aspect. So was UNC Charlotte
