Holy Scheduling?!?!

Recommended Posts

If Danefan is correct, our non-conference football schedule is absolutely BRUTAL next year. It also gives legs to the scholarship football argument. Next years schedule (unconfirmed) includes:


Brown (AWAY---part of our two year deal)


Hofstra (Away--had a young squad this year but should turn it around next)


LEHIGH (not sure where...but they got snubbed for the IAA's because Mont. State got an upset win and autobid...Lehigh is a Top 16 program)




FORDHAM (playoff team last year...and a snub this year...top 16 team as well)


That is one A-10, one IVY, and TWO Patriot league games. 3 of those teams have been ranked in the Top 15 in the previous three years...and the same three went to the playoffs, each winning a first round game.


I am not sure w/o some significant QB changes, we will have a chance to win any of these games outside of BROWN! BTW, Brown finished in a tie for second...they were much better than expected in the IVY...so our loss looks a little better.


Wow...Fordie has some serious nutz on him!

I know for a fact Hofstra is a guarantee game. Brown is not...it is a home in home. I would figure if any other game is a guarantee, it would be Lehigh simply because they make the most $$$ in the Patriot.


COntinuing on your thought though, if only one or two of those games are guarantees, then you have to figure the schedule was done to prep the school, gauge the gap in talent, and sell recruits (class of '08-'09) that we will have at least X portion of our schedule with the big boys.


I can tell you this, if we would (and I highly doubt it) sweep those four games, plus get through the NEC unscathed, UA would have the SOS to be the first team invited to the big show...from the non-scholly level.


Ahhh....wishful thinking!!!
