4. Scheduling is a work in progress. They are looking at models that would allow for teams to play equal amounts of games over specific windows of time.

Interpretation: For the most part, the Gophers will have two home-and-homes every five seasons against the 13 other opponents.

Got that? Without division play, the Gophers will be playing Wisconsin and Iowa twice a winter precisely as often as they will be playing Rutgers and Penn State.

Take your head out of a football helmet, Delany, and do what should be done with basketball:

East and West divisions. Home-and-home with six division opponents; six singles and one home-and-home (based on previous season’s standings: 1s vs. 1s, etc.) with the seven teams from the other division.

That’s a 20-game schedule. That’s 10 conference home games. Somehow, the Williams Arena crowd would be able to overcome not seeing Coastal Carolina.
