    The Maui Invitational announced they are moving the tournament to Las Vegas due to Hawaii's strict COVID policies.

    Good chance that the Hawaii Bowl and Diamond Head get moved as well. Sucks from an experience standpoint for the guys but staying away from that long flight and ending up in Vegas or similar is better for the long term.
    Heard anything about the Diamond Head Classic moving? I suppose UHawaii really wants to keep their home court...

      Last I heard, they were trying to get an exemption because the arena is quite a bit bigger than where they play Maui with a much newer ventilation system.

        DeVries is all in on this year, no doubt. However, that probably doesn’t scare him much due to the transfer portal. He and his staff have been very adept at finding quality players who’ve fit in well.

          Drake will lose half of their current 16 man roster at season's end, but they have seen this before.

          • Does anybody know when the MVC media day is? I'd imagine it's this week or next.


            ​​​​​​Err, nevermind, looks like it's next Wednesday.

            • The St Bonaventure game has been assigned to ESPN+.

              Peacock would have been way more fun...

              • Heads up to those that may need to juggle work schedules.

                The Vermont game is a 5:00 tip on Thursday, November 11th to accommodate their flight to play Maryland the on the morning of the 13th.

                Other than that, we've got Tip Times and TV for everything except the games at Marshall and SIU. See the first post.

                      Yup. The old Indiana State method. Red eye from CR to Chicago to DC from what I understand...

                        I was thinking free beer for veterans??

                        still crickets...

                          Free beer for anybody that can get there for 5:00 Thursday tip...

                          I'd make it a big deal for students--Come to the game before you go out!!!

                          But alas, that would require marketing...

                          I've given up on good attendance for the year but we have to do something for the ESPN games. That building needs to look good on National TV for recruiting.

                          • I realize you're being somewhat tongue-in-cheek with free beer. It is illegal for any establishment that holds an Iowa beer or liquor license to give away any free alcoholic beverage. Maybe $1.00 beer night would work but then you're giving up a revenue steam with no guarantee that it will put more butts in the seats..

                              Well, during COVID, I recall MLB and NFL teams packing the stands with cutouts of people (in some cases, real fans - SF Giants did that; in other cases ... well, the Denver Broncos had South Park characters).

                              I wonder if the AD can swing a deal on clearance cutouts?
                              "Well, that escalated quickly."
