Anyone think the new university president have a hand in scheduling Utah Valley State?


Interesting march to upgrade the UVSC athletic program. Thanks for providing the link.



Certainly will be nice to have some home games this year. I really like the fact that Boston U is the Big Purple Growl game this year. If preseason predicitons hold those will be the top two teams in the league and should be a great game in front of the years biggest crowd.


The early OOC games seem tough and road heavy but really Oakland and San Diego State are certainly games that can be won.

Here's the RPI numbers on some of those opponents:



St. Peters 164 or Florida 19

Sacred Heart-325

San Diego State-186



Cleveland St-275




Utah Valley State-227

The website release mentions that one more OOC will be announced at a later date. Any speculation/rumors on who that might be against, whether it will be home or away, and when it might be?



Edit: Guess that would be the BracketBuster game. TU article mentions the date I believe.

It's certainly possible that I'm crazy. I didn't predict victory in the San Diego State game just pointed out that it's not a David vs. Goliath game like say, the Danes vs. Florida. Admittedly I don't know too much about SDS other than they've had some trouble getting some of their recruits to campus this year.

The game against Oakland might be the most important OOC game of all. The final in Gainsville are likely to be on national television, regional for certain. (One of four Coaches vs Cancer sites). Gators have a history of looking ahead.


Regarding SDSU. I've watched them quite a bit the last two years. Well coached, very disciplined, but they will be returning from a tough trip to Alaska just prior to the Albany game. Maybe they'll take Danes lightly. Brandon Heath, 6-3 Guard - an NBA prospect.

While, it is certainly not a very important question; I can't understand scheduling a game at Cleveland State. It's a road game with a flight expense; it takes the players out of town around finals; its against a team with a not too impressive RPI; with no apparant connection. I like playing the IVYs and Patriots. I just can't figure out why we'd go to Cleveland instead of a Colgate, Lehigh, Lafayette or Bucknell type of team.

It's possible it was all the little chicks with crimson lips saying...

"Cleveland Rocks! Cleveland Rocks"


but probably not. We've had three good players come from the midwest in the past two recruiting classes. Maybe they are trying to increase exposure in that area for recruiting.
