    I'm pretty sure ESPN3 has carried some of the Week 0 games in the past. The term nationally televised is becoming loosely defined.

    Only 3 defensive starters back: Wheeler on the line, LB Ioanilli, and DB Daramy-Swaray. Holl was a grad transfer, and gone anyway

    Villanova with the win in a minor upset. If Colgate makes the playoffs this season it will be in the Patriot League old fashion way - as the unseeded PL champ.

    Re: Villanova @ Colgate 8/24 Time TBD

    Colgate took some huge hits. Not only do they lose a ton on defense, a lot of their key skill guys are gone. I believe their all their experienced WR's have either graduated or left the program. The OL and QB position will be a strength but outside of that I have no idea who's going to lead the way on "O". Holland was such a steady producer at RB. Matthews and Twyman could be a solid combo but that's definitely TBD. Their offensive coordinator also bolted for Elon. Like it seems everyone does...

    You never know how OOC schedules play out. Colgate's OOC schedule looked strong last year before the season started. Then UNH had their worst season in well over a decade, the Furman game gets cancelled and W&M bumbles along in Laycock's last year.

    We played three last year (counting JMU in the playoffs, that is), and it went pretty well

    Raiders will be rebuilding a bit, as the first post mentions, but it should be a fun start to the season. Suspecting it's ESPN that comes back for the Week 0 festivities.

    It’s doubtful that Nova will be as “talented” as the past 2 disappointing 5-6 teams under Ferrante. Mainly because we have a huge question mark at QB. Most likely to grab that spot will be a RS frosh who has great bloodlines (dad Qadry “The Missile” Ishmail & Mom was Syracuse HOF hoopster). He’s all of 6’7” and was the starter when we beat Richmond. He’s raw & somewhat of a project. He comes fast under new OC Chris Boden then Nova has a chance of surprising. He doesn’t arrive next season then it’s going to be tough for Nova even vs. the PL teams on the schedule (sans Bucknell).

    Also lose TE Ryan Bell (best Target) & tough runner Aaron Forbes. Nova does have some young backs that look promising & can ease the pain of Forbes graduation. Offense could be a hot mess or surprise to the upside. Time will tell. Defensively should be good, but probably not great. Ranked 16th in country last season & Id expect that unit to be ok with 7 starters returning although too many times last season they were on the field for too long and were gassed.

    Our kicking game more than likely will be below average with exception of the punting game which will be above average.

    Colgate will be a telling game for Nova. I would expect the Cats to be a TD underdog or more come late August.

    With that daunting schedule, your seed should be locked up as long as you finish top 4 in the CAA.

    Easier said than done since we only play the rented mule (Delaware) once this season.
