Well, either Thad Matta knows no fear when it comes to scheduling, or (more likely) the athletic department really likes money. I read in UWeekly (an independent student newspaper) that the basketball team will be playing Florida, Tennessee, Cincinnati, and Iowa State this season, in addition to North Carolina. That is some rough scheduling for an experienced team, but it'll be especially hard on a team that will have so many freshmen playing important roles. UNC and Florida will be on the road, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the team drop both of them, but the rest are at home and should be very winnable.
It wouldn't be fun to see the team drop 3 or 4 games headed into conference play, but if they managed to win all those games, it'd be a heckuva start to the season. Win or lose, it should be exciting.
