I have to believe it was a miscalculation to drop Bryant and wind up with a 10-game schedule. Why not travel to Montana State on Sept 10, like Bryant is going to do, and play a great FCS program in front of 18,000-20,000? While I agree it is better to play up rather than schedule schools like Bryant, I would not have dropped them if the alternative is no game. I doubt Vicky would either, and that she thought she could get a marquee opponent. Maybe we'll understand better when the 2017 schedule is finalized.

While I'm glad that the BOT thinks our fb schedule shouldn't include Bryant, it cracks me up that they're suddenly so concerned. Where were they when we were scheduling Central Connecticut State and Monmouth in the afterglow of 2003, rather than build on that year's incredible success? Or 20 years before when we were taking unprecedented actions to destroy the program? Vickie making a miscalculation trying to play up is a mistake I can forgive, compared to other past decisions. She gets the big picture.

Gate'80,

Different President and a totally different Trustee Board from Cental Conn era. Some key trustees told Vicky to drop.  I also hope we get a good replacement game, but getting real late.

Believe we're stuck at 10 for this Fall.  2017, dunno... will ask.  Agree w/ CR that the decision to drop Bryant was not Vicky's, she was told what to do...

Glad to see you on the new board, 80!

Had a feeling the What Sports Did For Colgate thread would be too much for '80 to resist.

Good to have you here, '80.

Also good to see The HooDoo back at work:
