DePaul Releases Schedule: No Northwestern

DePaul released its basketball schedule today. Much to my surprise, NU is not on the schedule. Here's a link: http://www.depaulbluedemons.com/downloads1/343379.pdf?ATCLID=204773044&SPID=7777&SPSID=68823&DB_OEM_ID=15600

NU does owe DePaul a home game and DePaul's website states they will play in 2010-11, but I wonder if it was NU or DePaul who forced a break in the Chicago-area series this year. Is DePaul trying to make their schedule easier or is NU going to really have a collection of tough and meaningful games? Right now it looks like DePaul is trying to take an easier route through the non-conference season, but we'll see what it looks lile when NU releases its schedule.

I just wanted to note that I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts about my Kevin Coble piece on Chicago College Basketball. Also, as someone who would love to see a Chicago round-robin it made me sad that DePaul and Northwestern won't be playing this season.
