Seton Hall ins # 15, Alabama is #24 and of course Friars who I think will end up at a top 25 team. Throw in VA or Vandy , 2 NCAA teams from last year and schedule is extremely tough, outstanding OOC schedule. They will certainly be battle tested going into the conference.


Agreed, might be the best non conference schedule Dan has put together since he's been here. Without stating the obvious, the Rams now need to win some of these games against the top competition, something that for the most part has alluded Dan so far (Cincy being the only good OOC win). We have a team with alot of experience, would be nice to get a few of these wins to build the March resume.

Going to be some close games OOC.....if we can win most of them, that to me anyway, will be the last piece of the DH puzzle as a coach....yes the end of last season was great, but need to build on that.

Alabama game

Unread postby Ramtastico » 1 month ago

Not sure anyone noticed, but the Alabama game is listed as 8:00 EST(7 CT) and is on SECNetwork +(Plus). This is from the Tide website.
"Plus +" is on Watch ESPN and Apple TV, among others. It is not channels 611 or 611-1 on Directv. The plus network is only on the internet.

That game is the last listed on our schedule with a "TBD" time.
I may be making the trip there, like I did at Auburn for Danny's first Rhody win!

20 of Rhody's 29 games will likely be against teams on this College Sports Madness Top 144 list. 9 of URI's 11 OOC opponents are expected on this list (with only Brown and Holy Cross failing to make it).

I think a 13-8 record vs these teams and a 5-3 top 50 record (playing Virginia in Brooklyn) is reasonable. Keep away from a real bad upset loss in the other 8 games and I see a 21-8 or 20-9 record. Team playing it's best in March.

Carleton, the defending Canadian national champion, has now beat three of URI's upcoming possible OOC opponents in the last two months - Vanderbilt, Alabama, and PC. Rhody fans would be thrilled to do the same.

Nice work.

Only these games are not against Top 144 Ranked Teams:

Holy Cross
Brown
George Washington

Thanks. Good catch. Made the fix and added that both exhibition/scrimmage opponents made this list as well. Team will surely be tested this season.
