    It will be interesting what Coach Ferrante keeps the same and/or changes.

    Just one more on a list of fantastic coaches from the CAA/ Yankee/ A-10 conference. He did it with compassion and class the whole way. The Laycocke's, Bowes, Raymonds, and Mcdonnells of the college football world remind us of what amateur athletics is all about.

    We haven't lost a ton of coaches for non-obvious reasons that might be linked to $$$, but it does seem to be a sticking point. Their loyalty to Rocco and a winning program have likely helped us retain these guys even without top dollar salaries, but at some point they need to be shown the money.

    From last season, we lost:

    - Trott (DC): JMU DC
    - Fisher (OC): Western Illinois HC

    From 2014, we lost:

    - Streeter (OC): Clemson QB (alum)
    - Thweatt (ILB): Virginia State HC (now JMU ILB)

    From 2013, we lost:

    - Lineburg (RB and Assoc HC; previously interim HC): UConn WR (now QB)

    From 2012, we didn't lose anyone.

    Re: CAA Postseason/Offseason thread

    I am putting together a spreadsheet to piece together next season's schedules, and came across some interesting dates on Stony Brook's site (link here: http://stonybrookathletics.com/sched...?path=football)

    This is what they have for next season:
    9/2 @ USF
    9/9 @ Rhode Island
    9/16 v Sacred Heart
    9/23 v Towson
    9/30 @ William & Mary
    10/7 v Delaware
    10/14 v New Hampshire
    10/28 @ Richmond
    11/4 v Albany (is the Pope coming?)
    11/11 v Wagner
    11/18 @ Maine

    Richmond has a list of "important campus dates" that lists home games for 2017 as:
    9/16 v Howard
    9/23 v Elon
    10/7 v Albany
    10/28 v Stony Brook
    11/18 v William & Mary
    Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens 2017: 8/31 v. Delaware State [7-0] - 9/9 @ Virginia Tech [0-0] - 9/16 v. Cornell [0-0]
    9/30 v. James Madison [14-10] - 10/7 @ Stony Brook [0-1] - 10/14 v. William & Mary [23-18] - 10/21 v. Richmond [20-11]
    10/28 @ Towson [11-7] - 11/4 @ Maine [23-11] - 11/11 v. Albany [4-2]- 11/18 @ Villanova [21-28-1]

    What a putrid home slate for the Spiders.

    Assuming no changes on CAA rotation, W&M appears below though no firm dates for all as yet.

    Home: Bucknell, Stony Brook, JMU, UNH, Towson
    Away: Virginia, Norfolk State, Delaware, Maine, Elon, Richmond

    what is a "living" salary?

    Re: CAA Postseason/Offseason thread

    How do they do the scheduling now, is it just last year's schedule but swapping home/away, or is it more complex than that now?

    I feel like UNH has to be due for another regular season trip to Harrisonburg. Ricky Santos was QB last time they came.

    That is a good question. At one point I thought they still had two (virtual) North and South divisions, so you'd play the same 5 every year and home-and-home half of the other division every two years.
    But I tried to suss that out and it didn't work - the only teams I'm sure UR will play every year are you and W&M.

    I've had the impression - or remember reading somewhere - that each member has 5 annual conference opponents and 3 which can rotate.

    For W&M - it appears UR, JMU, Elon, Delaware and Towson are the annual field.
