Re: 2017-18 schedule discussion (top post is current)

I wouldn't say it's optimal if it comes to pass, but no one on the committee would fault URI if we were to play a division 2 school as part of a tournament like this and unlike playing a bad division 1 team it would have no effect on our RPI.

Re: Thompson potential redshirt year?

He had his surgery 17 weeks before opening night. Obviously it depends on the nature of the surgery itself but that would seem like plenty of time to be ready to play 5-10 minutes a game if the coaching staff wanted him to.

Re: DI Men’s Basketball Committee redefines quality win

So for URI being 3-3 under the old metric and now 3-6, that would actually help URI because now that's 6 "quality" losses. 3 of URI losses would of been viewed more favorable under the new rules. That's how it probably should play out. Then again, the committee could say, they have a losi...

I've only been once, but Rentschler is nice. It's set up a lot like the upper deck at Gillette, where you have the middle open concourse with stairs to the upper or lower level, so you have an open view on the concourse. Roomier and nicer than Alumni Stadium at BC.
