Boyd’s World: Road Trip?

Start in Tempe with Oregon State and Vanderbilt. Close it out with UCLA visiting Fullerton. You might have to violate several physics laws to make it happen, but if you make all the games in between, you’d witness the greatest non-conference road trip of all time.

Boyd’s World has put together a list of all the top non-conference games featuring teams with top 50 ISRs between February 22nd (the date of the OSU-VU matchup) and May 20th (when the Bruins travel to Fullerton). I’m still not quite sure of Boyd’s ISR system and its built-in West Coast bias, but there’s hardly a game on the list that isn’t must-see CBB.

You can read the full list here.

    Where is the Beanpot on that list?

    Seeing College Baseball in Fenway Park is always fun.

    Check it out on April 23rd for a doubleheader.

    Well, the list is a computer generated one from the ISR. FWIW, I really don’t like the ISR. It’s a system that seems to have found a way to justify Pac10 arguments on message boards… and you know I don’t like that. :)

    I think the Big West might be a better conference with Fullerton, Long Beach, and Irvine to just name some.

    USC and Stanford’s programs have fallen on hard times. I see USC coming back to the NCAA Tourney real soon but I don’t know about Stanford. They have some talent every year but nothing comes through.

    Well Brian and NY,

    That sound like a heck of a road trip. One that I would enjoy making if I was in a position too.
