Columbus day weekend is a good weekend to take a boat up the Hudson to visit West Point.

Halloween at the Rent I will pass on that.

Fordham law grads need to unite to get Fordham on the schedule. BC/FLS grads alone sell out Alumni! Let's make this happen. :ace


Odds are low, but you're assuming that our coach in those years won't give us a 2012 Spaz-like performance. Either way, that's a great road trip and a respectable team to have on the schedule. We should be playing them more often. I'd like to see Navy and Air Force on the schedule on occasion, too.

If we're going to play an FCS school, HC is better than most other options. Have them, Maine, UNH, URI, Villanova and Fordham in a rotation. Add UMass when they drop back down. If these teams only play us every 6-7 years, it could be a draw for their fans.

I hope UConn drops football completely before we play those games. Zero desire to see them.

Cincinnati (like Purdue, Kansas & Missouri) is exactly the kind of team we should never be playing!

I agree with those 3. Cincinnati is fine from a recruiting perspective.

I'm fine with this game. There's a ton of Catholic high schools in the area, so it makes sense from a recruiting perspective.

I don't get the reluctance to play the others though. We need to be playing MORE P5 schools, especially those we have a solid shot of beating, like those three.

We should be playing P5 schools that make strategic sense. Cincy does. USC does. We get recruits from there. I don't think we've ever gotten anyone from Kansas. I imagine we've only gotten a small handful from Indiana and Missouri, if any.

Scheduling is not solely about recruiting. It's more about creating exciting matchups for the fans, TV, networking between AD's, etc...

E.g. if we could get a basketball home and home out of this football series with Kansas then sign me up.

What has been remotely exciting about Kansas, Missouri, and Purdue over the last decade outside of a couple of random Missouri years before they became an also ran again? Nobody wants to go to Lawrence, West Lafayette, or Columbia. TV stations don't care since none of those schools have rabid fan bases that drive ratings. I don't particularly care about AD networking. If a basketball thing was announced with the football game I could maybe get on board but even then it's still a stupid idea because one football game drives a shitload more revenue and exposure than one basketball game, especially against a doormat of a program like BC.

Not to mention we already had a home and home with KU basketball about 10 years ago. It didn’t generate that much excitement and as you could probably guess there were more KU fans than BC fans at Conte. It was during break.

This would be great for bball but just awful for football. This is supposed to bring in more season ticket holders?


Better than Purdue & Missouri anyway.

The away game vs. Missouri will be held at Arrowhead, IIRC. That's a trip I would make.

Why? If we are going to play a game against a team that nobody cares about, it better be an easy win.

Purdue and Missouri are at least respectable football programs

Missouri in KC is a decent away trip. KC is a fine place to spend a weekend as far as SEC schools go, they’re usually pretty good, i don’t really see the problem with this one.
