UConn Baseball Schedule Speculation and Facts

I posted earlier about known baseball games for next season. Here is what I said we have in print is happening:

Mon. March 5: At Mississippi State (MSU Schedule)
Oregon Tournament (TBD, Fri-Sat. March 3-11): vs. Oregon, Oregon State, Oklahoma, Illinois (Courant Website)
Tuesday, March 13th: at Sacred Heart (Pioneers Athletic Website)
Fri-Sun, April 13-15: at St. John's (Blankmeyer releases Big East Portion of 2012 schedule)
Sat-Sun, May 5 (DH)-6: vs. Cincinnati (Bearcats "Super Scoreboard" - baseball page still lists last year's schedule)
Tues. May 24th: vs. Bryant, 3:30 PM (athletic website)
No Games: Villanova, Georgetown

Additionally, the Yale website now confirms we are playing the Bulldogs on Wednesday, March 21 at 3:00 PM.

Finally, this was posted on the UConn Fan site, The Boneyard. I do not know how much of it is true.
Here are some additional games:
College of Charleston Tournament - Xavier, College of Charleston, URI - Feb 24-26
Mississippi State Tournament - Lipscomb, Mississippi State - March 3-5
Nike Classic - Oklahoma, Oregon State, Illinois, Oregon - March 9-11
Coastal Carolina Tournament - Michigan, Coastal, UAB - March 16-18

Possible games at either Norwich or New Britain:
Rutgers - April 20
Cincinnati - May 5
Notre Dame - May 17 & 18

First scheduled home game - March 21 - Yale

Supposing this to be true, that would mean we host Rutgers April 20-22 and Notre Dame May 17-19. (The last Big East series of the season is Thursday-Saturday). It also means we will not be home on finals weekend unless they give us three in a row. Assuming the Rutgers and Notre Dames to be accurate, we know the Cincinnati date is accurate, which means Seton Hall is the only one we're waiting on.

Additionally, we will likely play non-conferencr weekday games against Brown, Hartford, CCSU, Holy Cross, etc. Stay tuned!
