    We did it in 2017 out at Cal Poly. ESPN was also involved getting in on TV, maybe again?

    Week 0 kind of makes sense for a 12th game. Per the posted "Future Schedules" (https://gocolgateraiders.com/documen...?path=football) we have open dates on 9/7 and 11/23. I suppose I'd probably prefer a slightly weaker opponent between trips to Air Force on 8/31 and W&M on 9/14, but don't mind getting on the field with Nova. Heck of an opening slate though, if true:
    8/24 at Villanova
    8/31 at Air Force
    9/7 Bye
    9/14 at William & Mary
    9/21 Maine

    Dartmouth and Cornell at the other OOC
    Very challenging opening stretch. Do you have a new OC yet?

    Re: Patriot League 2019 Off Season Thread

    I'm not sure if any FCS team has a more challenging first four games than Holy Cross next season --

    at Navy
    vs UNH
    at Yale
    at Syracuse

    Be interested to see how they measure up! I think the FBS games artificially inflates the schedule. I know there's history with these teams but they're scheduled losses for the purpose of making $$. The Navy game will likely cause some attrition imo. Army's OL took out Colgate's Rohr and dinged up Wheeler. Navy has a history of doing the same. After a rough 2018 the Middies will be looking to make an early statement.

    'Cuse should be loaded as long as DeVito lives up to the hype. Several pieces are in place to challenge Clemson in the ACC.

    UNH and Yale are two wildcards. Yale was a bit of an enigma last year while UNH's ups and downs are well documented. I think 2-2 is realistic. 0-4 would be a major disappointment for a program looking to make a big jump in year two under their current regime.

    Perhaps so owl. A daunting start even if profitable. If they get through the OOC healthy that team will have the game speed to possibly roll through the rest of their schedule.

    Not sure it's tougher than Colgate's. Both are no jokes in February but you never know how things turn out. Everyone thought Colgate's schedule last year was murders row yet it ended up being pretty weak outside of Army.

    With that said, I tend to think UNH will show significant improvement while Maine likely takes a step, or 3, back. Dartmouth should once again be very good. Likely the Ivy favorite imo. W&M and Villanova will likely be mid pack at best CAA teams. But that still makes for a tough out.

    Holy Cross, somewhat surprisingly, has nevah played Navy in football. Partictularly surprising as HC has a long and storied tradition of being a Navy-affiliated school with NROTC and Naval officer training programs during WW2.

    Hopefully making the trip to Annapolis ovah Labor Day.

    Per Herosports top recruit groups for PL
    20. Holy Cross
    29. Fordham
    45. Colgate

    Admittedly their metrics are skewed by total reliance on offers but still an interesting bit for PL.
    According to Hero, each PL team has at least 1 top 300 recruit.

    Requisite grains of salt taken, but that would bode well for Fordham climbing back up in the PL standings

    Regular competition at the top from Colgate/Lehigh/HC/Fordham is good for the League overall
