7/11 Bidwell's Blog: Murray State schedule update
The Racers could be close to adding another piece to their scheduling puzzle.
When last we left you, Steve Prohm had 27 of the 29 openings filled on his Murray State schedule for the 2012-13 season. As of today's he's still at 27 -- thanks in part to VCU. Prohm has been working with VCU coach Shaka Smart for months to set up a home-and-home series starting next season -- a series that would begin in Murray. After VCU moved from the Colonial Athletic Association to the Atlantic 10 Conference, their schedule became a lot more complicated -- and the potential Murray State/VCU game ended up being a casualty. It's hard to say how much switching conferences had to do with it, but as Prohm told me via email: "VCU is not happening."
