Yesterday North Carolina released their non conference schedule for next year. Probably only five more months until Penn will release theirs.

There's not that much left to determine. I think Fairfield and Monmouth owe us return games. There's the USVI thing and the Big 5. Only leaves a couple openings.

We will, I'm sure, have Lafayette and I think that we are also scheduled to go to Toledo. Not sure whether we have a game with Delaware State and/or Dayton. You're right though - only one or two games to schedule.

I hope we upgrade the schedule a bit from last year. It would be disappointing if it is as weak--it is what gave us that 16 seed.

Fairfield does not owe us a home game. They played in the Palestra in December of 2016, and we visited them as last season's opening game.

It is my understanding that Dayton was a guarantee game, and they will not be visiting us.

As previously noted, Miami is visiting us in return for a game we played there during the 2015-16 season.

I hope we're done with Delaware State---that brings nothing to the table and we've played home and home.

Well, I’m still saving my ticket stub from that record breaker.

More than likely they are done with the Hornets. I would tend to believe that, if Monmouth is not on the slate, a regional team (one within a 100 mile radius of Philadelphia, such as such as Rider, Bucknell, Delaware, or Lehigh) would be on the slate. It is possible that they will continue their series with Navy (next year would be in Annapolis), and/or they add Drexel back to the schedule.

Outside of the Miami game and the potential for a game against teams like Kansas State and/ or Missouri in the Paradise Jam, there may not be slot availability to fit in a game against a known program, although there could be flexibility if certain series (Fairfield, for instance, are not continued). Right now, if the schedule will be 30 games like last season, this is how it breaks down (with projected games):

Ivy home and home - 14 games
Villanova (H)
LaSalle (A)
Temple (A)
St. Joseph's (H)
Paradise Jam - three games
Lafayette (H)
Miami (H)
Navy (A) *I am betting that this series continues
Toledo (A) *assuming that the series was a home and home
Five (5) available games

It all depends if the schedule will be 28 or 30 games. I could see one game being Monmouth/Rider/Bucknell/D elaware/Lehigh, one against a high mid-major (Davidson, perhaps), and a home and home with Drexel. I would not even discount Penn State as a possibility.

It will be interesting to see how the schedule shakes out over the next five months.

I'm going to guess a Chicago area away game against a known program as a Max Rothschild graduation gift.

The Dayton away game last year might have been Antonio Woods' gift.

The Paradise Jam is an exempt event, so Penn will be at 29 games to start (27 games for Ivy teams, MTE counts as 1 for 3 games). It could schedule a 30th against any of the other seven competitors in the event within two weeks of the tournament as a freebie game.

DePaul, UIC, or, even, Chicago State (unlikely as they were bad last season and would bring down the SOS) could be a possibility then. It would be fun to schedule Loyola a year after the Final Four appearance.

So, they could schedule, say, Old Dominion as a free game since they are one of the eight participants?

Honestly, I don't know how Chicago State even manages to field a basketball team. Back in the day, I actually participated in a Model UN competition there in high school, but that is an institution which may be shut down altogether in the near future.

As for UIC, I still remember the Quakers losing to them in January, 1983 after blowing a 20 point lead at the Palestra. That was back when UIC was known as Illinois-Chicago Circle or, simply, The Circle.

Circle--no definite article.

As in, "where are you going to school? Circle". Or maybe, "Circle Campus" (but even that sounds too formal).

I think that was the first game Penn played when I was a freshman in 84....lost in Chicago IIRC.

All right---who wrote their big (and pretty much only) hit, "Red Rubber Ball"?

No peeking.

Correct. Princeton didn't actually use the 30th game last year, but it could have, given that it scheduled USC (a Diamond Head participant) on the way to Diamond Head.

Harvard could have as well (and for some reason I recall that they did explore it with St. Joe's, but I could be wrong).

ODU or Northern Iowa would certainly be fun.
