I assume the GW thing is a H/H which is always good to catch a close game. I wonder if FDU is a H/H or is it a guarantee game.

Fairleigh Dickinson went 3-26 this year... :( Goodbye RPI.


One bad team won't kill your RPI. Everybody has to put some easy wins in the schedule. Given the Battle 4 Atlantis field I don't think a game vs FDU will kill us.

Considering the strength of the rest of our OOC, i highly doubt that Fairleigh Dickinson will hurt us too much.

We usually play a team like this at home, but normally we start the season off with it. Any word on what the home opener will be this year?

I agree that the rest of our OoC schedule is brutal, so a gimme game against "fairly ridiculous" (as my mother and many other New Jerseyans call it) wouldn't hurt for our W-L record. I thought WTF though when I read Fairleigh Dickenson.

There's a date held on 11/9, but no team listed yet, likely an exhibition. Is it possible that WSU is our regular season home opener on 11/13?

Stanford must be really busy to be listed twice!

It is certainly possible. We usually have a week in between the exhibition and the start of the regular season, but 11/13 would be a realistic time frame. If so the Shockers could end up playing their last game of the season against us this year and their first game of the season against us next year.

Farleigh-Dickenson? SRSLY?!
That is in the dead time for college basketball and the team won't hurt us. Not the worst game to have. With our OCC schedule being so strong it will be nice to have a easy game when the STU is not at 100 %.
