    UMass-Lowell coach Pat Duquette played at Williams College from 1990-1993 and was Dave Paulsen's assistant at St. Lawrence from 1994-1995.

    This is a far more appropriate schedule for a struggling program than the one we played last season.

    Colgate instead of Cornell
    Penn instead of Princeton
    JMU instead of ODU
    Mercer instead of Oklahoma
    Longwood instead of Catawba
    Wagner instead of Iona

    Hopefully we can win half of our OOC games and get the guys some confidence heading into the A-10 schedule.

    I agree, this is probably the weakest OOC schedule I've seen in the last 10 years or so, exactly what the doctor ordered given the current state of our roster.

    Remember when we started 4-0 two seasons ago and we thought it was the turning point and that we would be good? This is why i don't buy too much into the "gaining momentum" theory.

    However I do think it is important to play less high caliber team early on so you can learn your system without getting your throat stomped on

    Interesting, depending on how the Charleston Classic plays out, we could play Towson twice.

    Last years RPI and record (of course this doesn't take into consideration graduations, transfers, and incoming players):

    Colgate 197 (15-17)
    Mercer 213 (16-15)
    Manhattan 168 (19-11)
    Wright St. 264 (9-20)
    Towson 282 (10-20)
    Penn 262 (9-19)
    UNI 14 (30-3)
    JMU 148 (19-13)
    Longwood 316 (9-23)
    Wagner 298 (9-20)

    My guess for the Charleston Classic: UVA and OSU will be on opposite sides of the bracket and we'll be paired with either Ole Miss or Seton Hall in our first game.

    We arent getting everyone on the same page with a difficult ooc sched in DP first year. However, I would of welcomed a few meatier games. Perhaps the travel budget was cut from 650k to pay the idiot, maybe our roster is really weak? Imo, aside from uni, this sched does little to help us come conf play.
