Basketball Scheduling: Just A Thought

It seems like every season we debate the strength - or lack thereof - of the upcoming basketball schedule: Is the risk of losing relatively tough games against decent competition better than scheduling patsies?

But is there another option we haven't discussed (at least I haven't seen it discussed)? If we schedule patsies, those games are always played at the Comcast Center. Would it be beneficial to schedule one or two of those patsy games on the road? I understand there are financial ramifications to consider, but are they so great that missing a home game would be problematic?

The other questions are: Would winning a road game against a patsy help our RPI enough to compensate for the loss of revenue? Would the experience for a group of freshmen to play in a hostile environment against a much lower-rated team be sufficiently beneficial, especially before playing on the road in conference play? Is the risk of losing one of those patsy games on the road too great? Is there something else I'm missing?
