Q: You open with the first Big Ten-Big East challenge. What are your general thoughts on how that will play out?
A: We’ve talked about it as coaches, talked about it for a couple of years now. You know, when you’re dealing with RPIs and strength of schedules and what were up against being a northern school, why not try and come up with something where you’re facing at least schools that are in the same situation you’re in? It makes sense, and we’re 100 percent for it. The Big East had a couple schools with prior commitments so we are forced to play a couple Big 10 schools down there. I think it’s a great idea. We open with St. John’s, a regional team from last year, and then follow up with Northwestern and then Seton Hall. We’re all going to be in the same boat. From just my experience here, it’s been a couple plays, a couple walks and hit here or there. That’s the difference in the early season going one way or the other.
