What a brutal 8 day span to start the season. I'd say "poor students" looking at this schedule, considering they may only be around for 2 of the 4 home games, but I don't have much faith in our student body to give them the support they deserve anyway

2017-18 Bucknell Non-Conference Schedule:

Nov. 10 at Monmouth

Nov. 12 at Arkansas^

Nov. 15 at North Carolina^

Nov. 18 at Maryland

Nov. 20 SIENA

Nov. 22 BALL STATE^

Nov. 26 at Stony Brook^

Nov. 29 at Saint Joseph’s

Dec. 2 VERMONT

Dec. 5 at Northeastern

Dec. 16 at VCU

Dec. 19 at Richmond

Dec. 22 LA SALLE


- - - - -

Extremely challenging schedule, but maybe too challenging when it comes to travel the first few weeks. Up until Thanksgiving, it looks like this:

Nov. 10 at Monmouth
Nov. 12 at Arkansas^
Nov. 15 at North Carolina^
Nov. 18 at Maryland
Nov. 20 SIENA
Nov. 22 BALL STATE^


Two questions:

1. Are they going to be away from campus for over a week while school is in session? From Monmouth, they obviously fly to Arkansas. From Arkansas, it would make little sense not to fly to UNC directly. If they returned to Lewisburg, it would be for one day of class. And once they are at UNC on a Wednesday, does it make sense to return to Lewisburg for one day and then turn around and bus back to Maryland?

2. Are they going to have time for any practices at all the first few weeks?

I think only one home game while students are there. Remember that Thanksgiving break now encompasses the entire week.

Ah I did not realize it's a full week now. Well hopefully they show up for the Vermont game then

Top OOC schedules for teams not in P6 conference - based on Pomeroy rankings from last year:


1 Monmouth 96.75
2 Bucknell 108.769
3 La Salle
4 Middle TN
5 Siena
6 Princeton
7 Mississippi Valley
8 Dayton
9 Prairie View A&M
10 Oakland 147.461

https://twitter.com/Fieldof68Freak/status /89859517...


Also with almost 80% of the 75 P6 teams having released OOC schedules, only two (Kentucky and Alabama) have tougher schedules than the Bison. So in total, BU has the 4th toughest OOC schedule in the nation at this point. Might get tougher, since I expect Ball State, Stony Brook, La Salle, and especially St. Joes to be significantly better than last year.

Bucknell’s non-league opponents produced an average final RPI ranking of 95.2 and an average Pomeroy rating of 108.7...based on the numbers I recall from a previous post for the 05'-06' & the 12'-13' ooc's, this is a much tougher schedule than those. Is this in fact the strongest ooc ever for the Bison?

Yes, definitely the toughest overall ooc schedule ever - based on last year's rankings. I just posted a comparison on a new thread.

I wonder. When you factor in where the games are played, Bucknell's nine true road games might make this a tougher schedule than those two who are bound to have more home and neutral games. Admittedly, I haven't checked.

I'll be there @ 5 sharp. Whoever shows with an orange shirt is on my tab...no joking...how much can you lunatics drink in an hour and a half. I'll get Flannery there to stifle any serious attempt to defund me.

Old Bison, in the modern days of Uber, I can drink a lot in 90 minutes! Not having to drive make a HUGE difference.

GOOD - hopefully that will make you a more vociferous fan than usual. Tab will be under Old Bison at 5 sharp. Only requirement for service is orange shirt or jumper. Tim S, Gerry C and Jeff R are the invited "guests of honor" - they just don't know it yet but they will be so advised on 8/25

They're probably not gonna like that with respect to the "official" reception but you'll have to discern whether cocktails on the ocean with a bunch of Halloween costumed loonies is more your style. Opening night game given the next 3 (and appropriately supportive crowd) will be important --- road games always tough and opening night rust and jitters unfortunately levels the playing field for the underdog. Think Manhattan cut the score to 4 late last year before we took command
