bad year for Bryant. Hopefully Bryant turns it around next year and wins the OOC games it should have won this year.

Central was horrible as well (but with an awfuly difficult schedule). Here's my takeaways:

- The NEC is getting better, but we are at a huge disadvantage with just 40 schollys.
- Playing ranked FCS teams are great, and each team should try to schedule 1 per season.
- As expected, very difficult to win when overwhelming majority of games are on the ROAD.
- Need more home/home deals, which is likely limited to teams from the Pioneer/PL/Ivy/Big South/MEAC.

CCSU's schedule was brutal. Too difficlut for any NEC team year in and year out. Would like to see a more balanced schedule. IMO - Bryant, Monmouth, RMU and Sacred Heart had perfect schedules for their expected strenght. I would like to see SFPA schedule closer to SHU, and Duquense can step it up a little.

It will be intersting to see how the NEC schedules for 2013 and 2014, when each team will have the opportunity to schedule up to 5 non-conference games.

I know Bryant has home/homes with Maine for at least the next 4 years (so 6 years total)

and on another note, Wagner is hosting in the playoffs.
