Genuine question for the folks who like this schedule, is it just because it’s year one and we aren’t expecting much / it’s hard to put something good together on short notice, or do you genuinely think this is a good OOC slate? While I don’t like it, im not mad mainly because it’s year one, but this will probably put us in the bottom third of all D1 for SOS.

It's year 1. Like you I will expect MUCH tougher competition in year 2 and beyond.

Year 1, most of it was pre-determined. I like the local flavor. I wish the tourney was somewhere warm and the Stony Brook game stinks.

Like you said... for me, it's because it's year 1 and KE has done enough thus far to show me he's got a TON of potential. Also, we don't know how long some of these agreements have been in place. This might look like a DP schedule because it IS a DP schedule - give or take a few games. I know the P5 and football operates on a different schedule and level, but I've seen and heard of games getting scheduled 10 years in advance. So who's to say some of these commitments weren't made in 2019, or somehow contractually carried over from a crazy 2020 COVID season?

I don’t really care what last season’s record was. It was a year of chaos.

Going forward, you are going to probably want to take away two to three of these low majors in favor of tougher competition.

Again.. we are playing Nevada, not Minnesota.

I'm less concerned about schedule quality and more concerned about how we fare against it. Sure it might look like a DP schedule but I'll save my worry for if we play like a DP team through it.

Scheduling will improve if the team does. And it better, since they don't invite just anyone to the Diamond Head Classic.

Agreed, a couple of those low majors need to get replaced with tournament quality mid majors or mid range P5s if we are going to be looking at building a tournament quality resume in the future. 3rd in the A10 only gets a bid if they fall in the top 50 SOS and don’t beat up on the blind and deaf sisters of the Chesapeake bay all November and December.

Like you said, hard to judge off of season 1 when games are already on the books a couple years out. KE seems hungry and likes the spotlight. He knows games like Stony Brook bring no excitement and don’t help in SOS. No offense to the roster we have(it’s decent) but it can’t be at the level he is expecting to play with every year.

Absolutely!
