    Colgate-UNH and Lehigh-Villanova would seem to be the "marquee" battles. If the Raiders want to prove their worth they need to split their CAA games (W&M/UNH). I think the Raiders going into the Durham and beating what likely will be a preseason Top 10 UNH squad is unlikely. But going on the road and beating what could be a bottom half W&M seems quite possible IF Colgate is legit.

    Lehigh has played 'Nova down to the wire the last two meetings but have come up short both times. Neither team was any good last year ('Nova's offense was almost as bad as Lehigh's D) and were definitely two of the big disappointments nationally. Still, the odds favor the Wildcats again. Even on the road. Another losing season in the post-Talley era would be a bit of a red flag imo.

    Richmond traveling to the Bronx could end up being interesting. The Rams always have quality FCS talent but their coaching is up and down. If the new guy is closer to Moorhead and Clawson the Rams will be relevant nationally again.

    Colgate is @ UNH and @ W&M
    Lehigh hosts Villanova
    Fordham hosts Richmond and is at @ Stony Brook
    Holy Cross is @ UNH (payback?!?!)
    Lafayette is @ Delaware
    Bucknell hosts W&M and is @ Villanova

    Are any CAA fans concerned about these PL games? Do you consider them must wins? Scheduled wins?
    Idc the margin of victory just get the “W” against Lehigh & Bucknell.

    I wrote here last season that a loss to Lehigh would be a forewarning of rough times for Villanova given a tougher CAA schedule ahead. We eeked out a 38-35 win. Nova went 5-6 with brutal losses to Albany & Rhode Island. Most seasons both are wins.

    This Nova teams expects to turn it around & make the FCS playoffs then the 2 PL foes are MUST GAMES!

    Re: CAA - Way too early to make predictions?

    Albany opens spring practice today with new hope for the fans as the OC has been moved to defense where he belongs, replaced by Joe Davis, formerly of Fordham and Northern Iowa

    Also hoping Ibitokun-Hanks has regained his health and confidence

    Fordham visits UR on September 8 at 6pm,the weekend after UR v UVA game on September 1.

    UR visits Rose Hill in 2019.

    Your venue was only off a year.Not Too bad.

    Good luck.Be easy on us.

    Richmond traveling to the Bronx could end up being interesting. The Rams always have quality FCS talent but their coaching is up and down. If the new guy is closer to Moorhead and Clawson the Rams will be relevant nationally again.

    Colgate is @ UNH and @ W&M

    Bucknell hosts W&M and is @ Villanova

    Since I got the UR/Fordham location I also wrong I got the SBU/Fordham location incorrect.

    Fordham is @ Richmond, hosts Stony Brook

    Every thread always does. Speaking of your name though UD could burst through this year if they get their act together in terms of QB/WR/RB

    I think Joe Walker/Darius Wade will open up the offense greatly. Just get that offensive line together to keep the ground game solid. Walker is a great wildcat QB option in addition to showing he has the athleticism to make the transition to WR fulltime on the outside with his speed, nifty footwork and what looks like good hands. With Hills returning they would have been my favorite to win the CAA but such isn't the case as he's now at D2 Slippery Rock for his final year of eligibility.

    They hope to be much improved at QB now that the Joe Walker three-year nightmare is over - he's been moved to WR & BC transfer Darius Wade will be the QB. I like UD's WR setup, the RB's are kinda thin versus the status quo at UD but the big question is the OL. That unit has struggled awfully over the past two seasons, especially at pass protection. That's one thing we'll have to wait until September come actual games to see if it's better.
