The Georgia Bulldogs schedule for the 2011-2012 season does not appear to be very forgiving, considering this team is losing nearly 45% of its offense to the NBA.
The Dawgs will open up the season with the CBE Classic, a preseason tournament in which Georgia will actually host regional round games between November 13 to 17. The other three hosts in this tournament are Missouri, Notre Dame and California. All four hosts automatically advance to the Championship Rounds (regardless of the outcomes at the regionals), so there is a very good chance that the Dawgs will get a game against a team from this year’s NCAA Tournament (either Missouri or the Irish).
On December 17th, Georgia is tentatively set to travel to Southern Cal to take on the Trojans (another 2011 tourney team).
The Dawgs should also have road games at both Colorado and Xavier (another 2011 tourney team).
Georgia now has two scholarships available with the departures of Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie. Hopefully Coach Mark Fox can find a JUCO talent to add to next year’s roster before the summer.
At the very least, he could work on getting some rematches set up with Arkansas State, High Point, Charleston Southern and Eastern Kentucky…
