Again, perspective folks.  Playing a high major at home is a RARITY.  

It's actually 40 years since Kent State had a home game against a P5 team.

 

By that metric, we're not doing so bad with our 2001 home game against Syracuse. 25 years to go until our next one.

Just be good enough to get a couple of the more solid east coast mid-majors in...

And beat some Power Conference teams in their own building. Just like last year.

It may be the best schedule including the best home schedule we've ever had....thoughts?

It's certainly up there. We had a year with Delaware, St. Bona and a really good VCU team on our home schedule.

 

More home games than road games has been pretty rare for us.

 

I think if we want more fans to come, the quality home schedule is going to help. I've noticed a bunch of "a la carte" fans in the capital district in recent years. They are season ticket holders for UAlbany football and lacrosse and then season ticket holders for Siena basketball. A strong schedule might convert some of them.

We wouldn't have had room though. He committed to Monmouth for this coming year.

He reclassed to 2017, was a 2018 kid.

 

He had an interesting recruitment experience. He's a 2017 grad who had committed to a D2 school but a couple of D1 schools came knocking this spring and he was going to prep and then go D1 in 2018. I guess the Monmouth scholarship opened and he decided against prep school.
