Hoping this isn't true:

Sorry, it's true.  Series with Bryant was cancelled.

AFCA has Northern Arizona and Montana State as both having open dates 9/10 but they are both booked (Bryant is going to Montana State).

Gardner Webb might have some open dates for later in the season that can be moved around with Colgate's 10/22 open date.

I'm sure this has all been looked into.

I asked Vicky & Ann-Marie about it last Fall, they said they were working on an 11th game.  Getting late though...

NDSU only has 10 scheduled with an opening on 9/3. If they could move Western Illinois from 10/22 to 9/3, Colgate could go to NDSU (and win big).

Any idea why the Bryant games were cancelled?

According to the AGS board, NDSU will have an opening on 9/10. So starting at Syracuse, NDSU, Yale, and Richmond (and having one home game for the first seven weeks of the season) could happen--and part of me likes the idea--until I remember that these kids also have to go to school.

BOT directed athletics to drop them.  Think they felt Bryant wasn't a traditional opponent and doesn't fit the current "schedule up" attitude.  Of course if the alternative ends up being a 10 game schedule you'd have to call this a mistake...

Agree with the BOT on this one.

I'd be more concerned if we played a cupcake schedule.  In 2012, Lehigh finished 10-1...and didn't get an at-large bid.  That's what a winning season with a soft schedule will do for you - absolutely nothing.  We need to make the most of these 10 games.  I am tired of losing to the better Ivy teams, too.  Four home games is a true disappointment.  I wonder how favorable the other Patriot teams' schedules are.
