2007-08 Baylor Gentlemen Hoops Schedule Features Four Less High School Teams

In a surprising turn of events Scott Drew (Inventor of the 30 Minutes of Hell and Gentlemen Basketball Coach) announced the toughest non-conference schedule in a generation. Drew explained that the primary reason he did this was to prepare for the Big 12 season, a first since joining the conference at its creation. Drew detailed the reasons for the schedule:

We always attempt to schedule as many games as possible against really weak teams, the type of team that if we lost to it would be shocking, even for us. It's important to build the guys confidence up against these opponents so when we get decimated during the Big 12 season we can point to our overall record and say we had a decent year. You know it is just so hard to look into the players eyes when we start our conference schedule and see the shock and disappointment when we struggle to execute on offense or defense after dominating the likes of Prairie View A&M for two months. I'd do anything to avoid that feeling, but now we may have to deal with this as early as November. I hope the AD realizes he just ruined Christmas for 13 young men.

  • If we played the top 5A teams in the state, I guarantee we would make the state tourney.

  • I was hoping the Washington State game was an away game for the Gentlemen Bears so it would be a home game for me. (The Pullman metroplex is 227 miles from Loomis.) Then I could have been promoted from Research Assistant to Esteemed Correspondent. It is probably for the best. I might be Cougar-Born, but I am Baylor-Born-Again; the decisions about attire might have put me over the edge.

  • Also speaking for the geographically-challenged, the Bears aren't playing any teams in the Northeast this year. The B does have a game scheduled against Monmouth (from right here in NJ) but it's at the Virgin Islands tournament.

    Of course, when I suggested that we drive up to Syracuse to watch the Baylor-Syracuse game last year, my wife said, "You want to do what?" So maybe it's just as well.
