    In response to res

so what do people think the ooc should look like this year? obviously we lost three great players, have to have players step up and assume new roles, and don't have the same amount of depth in the size department.

also some unknown factor in terms of foes in the Diamond Head Classic, contains 2 p5 as well as teams from some of the better mid- major comferences (a10, mvc), so we'll undoubtedly play at least one, probably two good teams out there.

how many buy games? we usually play 3, but that would mKe for a pretty heavy schedule for a team that has to find its new identity given what else is already on the schedule.

i think:
- two buy games including OSU
- three games in Hawaii
- three series away games: Vermont +2 more
- five series home games: Monmouth, Northeastern, St Joes +2 more

on the additional games, away i would like to see another series with an A10 team that will come to Sojka start or continue with LaSalle or Richmond, maybe Mason now that Paulsen's players have graduated. also would like to see us continue to play in Philly regularly. Penn would be good, but have heard they don't have much interest in coming to Lewisburg.

other mid majors i like for series most Ivies, Delaware, W&M, Albany.

It has been a while since we played Delaware, Drexel, and Fordham. I'd be interested in any of those three in a home-away series.

If possible, playing an Ivy on the same trip as Vermont (Dartmouth???) could make sense.

I'm sure a lot of people would like to play Pitt this year, but it would be good to get a game in Pittsburgh (even Duquesne if Pitt isn't available) as well as Philly.

I too think Fordham, Drexel and Delaware are all attractive options. And, I know it's been discussed before, but would love to see a game in Hershey. Perhaps Jay Wright would be willing to play a game there in the next couple of years since he has a Hershey High grad on the roster.

A couple of Ivy games would be great. Would like to see us play Cornell or Princeton again. Maybe a MAC team as well - Buffalo would be a good game.

  • Bison137 Said:
  • BisonRoadWarrior Said:
On a radio/podcast interview, Notre Dame's Coach Brey said the Bison are coming to South Bend. For Walter Ellis, a prompt home visit/game at his father's alma mater.




Is this a recent comment by Brey, or the one discussed in this thread back in early January?

The reason I ask is that the ND event, although there was little information given, appears to be a multi-team event. And the Diamondhead Invitational in Hawaii is definitely a MTE. NCAA rules appear to restrict a team to one MTE in a season:

"An institution shall limit its total regular-season playing schedule with outside competition in basketball during the playing season to one of the following:

(a) 27 contests (games or scrimmages) and one qualifying regular-season multiple-team event per Bylaw 17.3.5.1.1; or
(b) 29 contests (games or scrimmages) during a playing season in which the institution does not participate in a qualifying regular-season multiple- eam event. "



Now it is possible that the ND event is not going to be an official MTE, although I doubt it because one purpose of a MTE is to allow teams to schedule more games. And it is possible that BU is allowed to play in it and not count it as their one MTE, although the rules seem to limit a team to one MTE per season. Another possibility is that BU, when presented with an unexpected last-minute invitation to the Hawaii event, asked ND if they could defer their participation in the ND event until 2019. You will recall that Brey said that he planned to run the ND event for at least two years, so a delay theoretically would be possible. And it might be easier to work out with Ryan Ayers on the ND staff.




Looks like the Bison are going to defer participating in the Notre Dame event until 2019-20. The ND field is reportedly now set with ND hosting Duquesne, William and Mary, UIC, and Radford. Duquesne will host all of the teams except ND. Had the Bison participated in place of W&M, it appears they might have had home games with Radford and UIC and road games at ND and Duquesne.

Since this event is definitely an official multi-team event, the Bison could not have participated in it and Diamond Head in the same year.

Interesting. I could see the Bison making a stop at St. Mary's for a game on the way to Hawaii. There is a 9-day gap between the end of finals and the first game of the Diamond Head event - plenty of time for two or three games prior to Hawaii.

I'm racking my brain as to the Nebraska game. It seems a little strange that BU would fly all the way to Lincoln NE for one OOC game - but I'm not sure what other way the two could meet.

I just took a look at the St. Mary's board and found that a regular poster back in April said that Bucknell would be visiting them, either on the way to or on the way back from Hawaii.

With the PL schedule the past two years, it would have had to be before Diamond Head - since league play started by December 29th. But this year I see that the NCAA tournament - which drives all of the other scheduling - is later than normal. That has allowed the PL schedule to not start until January 3rd, which in turn frees up space for at least one OOC game after Christmas.

Following up on the above, here is the Bison PL schedule - before adjustments for TV of course.


Jan-3 @ American
Jan-6 @ Boston U
Jan-9 Army
Jan-12 Lafayette
Jan-16 @ Lehigh
Jan-19 Colgate
Jan-23 Loyola
Jan-26 @ Holy Cross
Jan-30 Navy
Feb-2 Boston U
Feb-6 @ Army
Feb-9 @ Lafayette
Feb-13 Lehigh
Feb-16 @ Colgate
Feb-20 @ Loyola
Feb-23 Holy Cross
Feb-27 @ Navy
Mar-2 American

Mar-5 PL First Round
Mar-7 PL Quarters
Mar-10 PL Semis
Mar-13 PL Championship


Bison weekend opponents are Boston, Lafayette, Colgate, Holy Cross, and American (second time only). That is the same as it was in 2017-18 except that changes for TV and a condensed first four games caused the schedule to be somewhat convoluted.

If you recall the games last year I heard they were playing early on were all confirmed...UNC, Arkansas & Maryland. So I'm pretty confident both St Mary's & Nebraska will be on the upcoming schedule.

I don't doubt your info at all. Just trying to figure out the logistics of a game with Nebraska. Lincoln is a very difficult place to get to if you're not chartering - and the Bison almost never charter unless a game is part of a tournament that is covering transportation. Maybe they will tie both St. Mary's and Nebraska in with the trip to Diamond Head. Or else Nebraska is generous enough with their fee to allow the team to charter.

After these are confirmed, you will be promptly named to the board's All-Time Schedule-Scoop First Team.

Now fetch us some dates!!

The notion of Nebraska and St. Mary's en route to Hawaii makes me cringe a little, logistically, since I view all of them as "must-attend." Nebraska and Hawaii would be new states where I've seen the Bison play, and a game at St Mary's' great little McKeon Pavilion (3,500) has always been high on my list.

Not fond of that league schedule. 5 of the last 8 on the road, 3 being Wednesday trips (Army, Loyola, Navy).

Everybody wants to play you the year after you graduate a trio of 1,000 point scorers. The life of a mid-major team.

St Mary's sure makes sense as this O'reilly's senior year, and coaches generally try to get game near (or in this case in) each player's hometown sometime in the 4 years that they play for them. At least that was always Pat Flannery's goal, and since HCND is from the Flannery Tree, it stands to reason. Now Nebraska I have no idea...

Ben Robertson is from Nebraska. Not his senior year but I’m sure the staff jumped at any opportunity to play in his home state
