Re: 2017-18 schedule discussion

Very strong schedule. The teams from the relatively weaker conferences, with the exception of Brown and Holy Cross, are preseason favorites. Immediate conference schedule thoughts- 4 of the first 6 conference games (including St. Bonaventure) are at home but students aren't back yet, next 4 of 5 on ...

He will play this season at 21. No way. There is no logjam at his position. He either contributes at this level or he doesn't. A redshirt year with this staff has a specific purpose; it is not something that just kind of happens, as you wait to see how things shake out.

Ok, now that it's finalized, I think the match-ups are weird. If you go with 1-4, 2-3, Rhode Island would likely play Virginia. Instead, they get the second game in 6 seasons against the Hall. Fairleigh Dickinson is the fourth team of the "others."
