Agreed - 100%

Returning to an 8-game league schedule is the best news for the NEC in a while. This should eliminate the need to schedule D-II teams. For most schools it will likely mean 1 guarantee game on the road (at FBS/CAA/MVFC) and 2 games vs. FCS (Patriot/Ivy/Pioneer/MEAC/Big South) opponents.
