The casual observer would think we had joined the MAC.

You take MAC games away and Temple, Butler, Cal, Xavier (and that Championship game ;) ) look like a very nice schedule. I love playing Butler and Xavier, but is also reminds me how we get left behind.

If any web sleuths ever come across what Butler and/or Xavier are paying us for these games, please share! Just curious.

Butler released their non-conference schedule today. It confirms the Bulldogs will host “Detroit” on November 12.

In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

Heard there is room for one more game. Just a guess, but probably a non-D1 home opponent will be added (perhaps on Saturday, December 8, in the middle of what is currently a long stretch between games).

FWIW, I noticed that the 2:00 p.m. game at EMU in Ypsilanti will coincide with the second half of the scheduled Michigan-Ohio State football game.

It would be hard to understate how bad the rebrand has been in this regard. I could see the Indy newspapers calling us “Detroit” after re-reporting the news from Butler. But even Butler, on their official twitter, listed us as “Detroit.”

You’d think that when we make these arrangements, we’d express how important it is to our opponents that we have rebranded and getting the name right is critical.

Maybe we should tweet our schedule listing Futler.

I know it is off topic, but here’s more examples of branding failure I noticed, just in the last few days.

The background photo on the Twitter page for the new Marketing & Promotions Director says “Detroit Titans.”

A recent newspaper article on one of the new WBB commits has the player calling the school “Mercy,” her coach says “U. of D.,” and the reporter uses “Detroit Mercy.”

When Coach Scott welcomed WBB prospects to campus during recent recruiting visits, he had them photographed wearing a “Detroit” jersey.

“Our consultants advised against returning to ‘University of Detroit’ as the school name as that would cause mass confusion.” — UDM official, August 2017.

We do it every year, rogo, play a game on the same afternoon as the Michigan - Ohio State football game. Only difference is most years it's a home game and this year it's at EMU. But the games at Temple, Butler and Xavier look interesting.

Uhhh! As much as I hate getting into this time and time again, it seems we (I) can’t help ourselves because of the CONSTANT inconsistency. I really wish Garibaldi could have persuaded the trustees to go back. As this point, I fear the university will just give up on making athletics be “Detroit Mercy” - and rebranding athletics again will just cause more confusion.

That school in East Lansing has the same problem. Is it Michigan State, MSU, State, Michigan State University or Michigan Agricultural College?

Hard to imagine better non con opponents than Xavier, Dayton, Butler. Relatively light travel and good payouts I assume.
