I believe JB just said we have 7 OOC slots to fill. Not sure if that includes the Georgetown and B1G challenge games.
Wonder if UVM might be considered.I believe JB just said we have 7 OOC slots to fill. Not sure if that includes the Georgetown and B1G challenge games.
There was a story recently that said SU is focusing on booking teams based in NYS for OOC games. I think we have at least 5 to fill, maybe more.
With Patriot and Ivy League teams out, who is left?
St Francis (Brooklyn)
SUNY Stony Brook
I am guessing they would prefer to focus on the schools closest to SU.
Guessing Niagara, with Greg Paulus now the HC, is close to a lock.
Would think Canisius and St Bona would be high priorities. Siena has to be right up there too.
I don’t think we have as much history with SUNY Albany And SUNY Binghamton but both would be strongly considered.
There might be reluctance to schedule UB in the quest to get as many sure victories as possible. Maybe not with the LSU game getting dropped.
Iona might be too far from SU and I would guess JB would prefer not to play Rick head to head.
So if we have 5 slots to fill, my guess is they will try and go with Niagara, Canisius, St Bonaventure, Siena and UB. If UB doesn’t work, one of the other upstate SUNYs (Albany or Bingo).
