    Re: 2017 Schedules

    I think the CAA is trying to do 2 year rotations with the conference schedule, so this is what I think Delaware will have:
    9/2 - Delaware State
    9/9 - @ Virginia Tech
    9/16 - Cornell
    @ Villanova
    @ Towson
    @ Stony Brook
    @ Maine
    James Madison
    William & Mary

    Yeah, even at only 10 games so far, I'm envious of Colgate's schedule next year. Joe, take note at the art of the possible.

    Because the NCAA has to incentivize other teams so that Hawai'i can fill out a schedule. Travelling to Hawai'i mid-season is inordinately hard and expensive and, aside from the fans, no team in the rest of America would willingly go there.

    * For an east coast team, you're looking at an average of 14 hours flight time each way. That's just the time that the plane is in the air and doesn't account for time spent travelling to the airport, time in the airport, clearing security, re-fueling stops and any other delays that typically happen on a trip that, strictly in terms of mileage, is a transcontinental flight from anywhere in the country.
    * Once you're there, it's a 3-hour time difference for a west coast team and a 6-hour difference for east coast so jet lag is a serious concern. Many teams actually end up facing that aspect the following week while they're preparing for their next opponent so having an open date after the Hawai'i trip is ideal. If you have a tough opponent, the week after you travel to Hawai'i, you might be in trouble.
    * Travel to and lodging in Hawai'i are extremely expensive; so much so, in fact, that, on top of allowing the bonus game, the NCAA themselves chips in travel $$ to help cover travel costs.
    * Beyond all that, the facilities at Hawai'i are nominal at best, particularly for a visiting team. June Jones was easily the most successful coach that Hawai'i has had since the 1970's and, when he resigned, he specifically cited the lack of facility improvements despite their success as a leading reason for his departure.

    Not sure if I posted this in another thread before.

    S16 at Rhode Island
    S23 Brown
    S30 at Georgetown
    O7 at Cornell
    O14 Lafayette
    O21 Princeton
    O28 Dartmouth
    N4 at Columbia
    N11 Penn
    N18 at Yale
    Reason number one why I am a bandwagon fan: the Ivy League football teams are not playing at their best nationally.

    The same deal works for Alaska-Anchorage and Alaska-Fairbanks in hockey. You get an extra game (up to 2) for each game you play in Alaska.

    Re: 2017 Schedules

    Here's what I know of Western's at this point...

    Non-Conference games (don't know dates at this point): at Northern Arizona, vs Saint Xavier University (small NAIA school in Chicago...I hate that we had to schedule a non-DI opponent, but we kinda had to scramble when Coastal Carolina backed out of their return game to Macomb that year due to FBS reasons). I'd imagine that we'll probably (hopefully) be able to find a FBS opponent for a weekend in there, and I'd hope that our athletics department is also calling around to see if there's any FCS teams interested in coming to Macomb so we can swap out SXU.

    Conference Schedule:
    9/30 - South Dakota (Homecoming)
    10/7 - at Northern Iowa
    10/14 - Missouri State
    10/21 - at North Dakota State
    10/28 - South Dakota State
    11/4 - at Illinois State
    11/11 - at Indiana State
    11/18 - Southern Illinois

    Also, for MVFC reference, this is year 1 of the 2 year "bye" schedule, so next year is the same as this year:
    WIU & YSU
    ISUb & SDSU
    SIU & NDSU
    USD & MSU
    ISUr & UNI

    And one more thing I just noticed that while typing it up....Coach Nielson, at the end of next season, will have coached in the MVFC for 5 years and played Missouri State exactly once (his first year at Western).
