    James Madison (home, 2nd game of a 2 year deal)
    AT Northern Iowa (4th game of a 4 game series)

    I am presuming all of the other OOC games were one and done's. Towson, Manhattan, Wright State were 2 year deals that is now completed.

    I'd like to see College of Charleston. And why not a trip down to Coral Gables ?

    I thought we were playing at Penn in the Palestra?

    Thank you for starting this thread, I was thinking about this the other day. Besides those two, JMU & UNI, thats all i can think of. Maybe someone has more info. As for Conference games.
    Im just guessing here: VCU, GW, Richmond, Umass, URI, LaSalle, Fordham, (and two others) at home.

    Towson was a game that was a part of the Charleston Classic. I have no idea if Mason gets a return game.

    I suspect Penn was a buy game and I doubt Mason goes to Coral Gables unless they do a buy game, and I don't think the A-10 does buy games for the most part (I could be wrong).

    Home/Homes + 1 offs in the A10 will probably stay the same (home and home with GW, VCU, Richmond etc)

    Give me an early November homecoming against Miami and I won't bitch for the rest of the season

    Donald Trump will be appointed Supreme Emperor of the Planet before L plays us in Fairfax.

    It's a huge long shot, but not completely out of the question given our youth, that we could play a one-off game in Coral Gables.

    But the last thing L wants is to risk getting his ass handed to him before a sold-out EBA ... and we all know it would be a standing-room only crowd for that one.

    Miami played at LaSalle this season, don't see why they would do that and not come to Fairfax. Should have been part of the deal to let them practice at Mason before the ACC tournament (or at least an opportunity to start the discussion). Just show Larranaga a clip of all the times he complained about BCS teams not playing road games (Miami played 1 voluntary OOC game this year).

    Those seem like pretty good odds with how this election is going.

    If there was a time for a guaranteed win in FFX for Miami, next year would be it.

    ideally, we'd have ODU and JMU on the schedule each year with one at home and one on the road.

    Yes, I'm aware, robot Washingtonian :D.

    However, as pointed out by Masonfanatic previously, the game was "apart" of the Charleston Classic and may not be a home and home.

    I thought we played them the year prior in Fairfax for some reason, oops!

    Well, it would make sense to have this as a home and home, just make sure it is opening night when the likelihood of snow is nil.

    I went to the Palestra years ago for a Bonnies vs. St. Joe's game. I think Hagan Arena was undergoing renovation. I'd definitely like to go back - hopefully it's a weekend game.

    I would think that we would attempt to play any and every D1 school in the state or an hour drive outside of Fairfax. I would like to see some local games against American, Navy, etc.

    Manhattan was a 2 for 1. Details, details. It's still over, which is what matters. :)
