  1. Kinda odd having the matinees, I think the first one falls around Veteran's Day though, so that'd make sense, I don't know what holidays the others would fall on though. Seven 3 in 3's seems a little harsh too, have you seen anything that shows how many each team has and how that compares to everybody else?

    Looks like a trip to San Antonio may be in order for October 10th too

  2. Honestly, Texas may have gotten off easy. I've seen as many as 13 (Houston).

  3. Ok, so I guess a quarter of your games being in a 3 in 3 isn't as bad as nearly half. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with cutting cost on travel, but it seems like that's about the only benefit that comes from the 3 in 3, the quality of play definitely isn't helped by them though.
