    Saw our 2019 schedule online and yeah it's a doozy! Losing 12 starters, one of which was a top runner in all of D2 football. Boulware has to bring a new approach or we could realistically start the season 0-4 or 5! Not trying to be a negative Nancy, just realistic given where the program is and what we've seen in the last four seasons. Praying a change of focus happens this offseason.

    My biggest concern is the D line, we lose a lot of D linemen and the D line has been one of our strengths year in and out. On the positive: we return our QB; a few starting OL; two good RB's and the potential for Murchison to come back; and pretty much our whole secondary. If we can hit the transfer route hard to fill in gaps for the OL and DL then I think we have a bright outlook.

    Looking at that first game at UNCP, my ole Braves bud said they they're going to be pretty good this coming year because almost everyone's coming back. Didn't think much about it at the time, figured it was pride talking, but then I checked. Surprisingly, UNCP's top 4 rushers, top 5 receivers, and both of their starting and backup QBs are all coming back, add in a D2 All American Kicker, their whole O-Line, along with most of their starting defense players returning, and he may have a legitimate reason to be pretty optimistic.

    Just based off of this year's schedule I'd assume Bowie State will host Alderson Broadus *sp* and McKendree next season. Also it may not happen next season, but in the next 3 to 4 years we'll likely see Bowie schedule Frostburg State who'll be moving up from D3.

    WSSU can have all the talent it wants but if the coaching is not on point it won't mean a thing. Ask VUU with all those Florida and UVA transfers and they laid an egg about two years ago. That is where you start, the coaching.

    Yeah, I'm happy we were able to pull 3 D2 OOC games which should be a challenge. Originally we had a game at Hampton scheduled for 2019, but I guess their move to the Big South put that game on hold.

    That's highly doubtful, because the MEC is reportedly going to a full "silo" schedule with the addition of UNC-Pembroke (affiliate membership), Wheeling Jesuit (new program) and Frostburg (from D3), giving the league 12 football teams from 2019 onward.

    It must have been the third game of the season because Hampton's schedule now shows them playing North Alabama (new Big South member).

    Speaking of Hampton, the Pirates will host ECSU the first week and Virginia Union the second week.

    Hampton's schedule shows Howard as their week 3, and Liberty as their week 4 (which would be WSSU's week 3) (https://hamptonpirates.com/schedule.aspx?path=football). From looking online it looks like the Liberty game was scheduled in 2017, so I can imagine the fact that D2 appears to be starting a week later then FBS and FCS this year that's how things got thrown off.

    Also, I am glad to see Hampton and Howard let cooler heads prevail and that this game is back on the books after the MEAC attempted to blacklist Hampton for leaving.

    Speaking of D2 starting a week later, I guess ECSU got a waiver to play Hampton on 8/31? Which means they will probably have a bye in one of the early weeks.

    In an unfortunate turn of events Malone has dropped football. They were scheduled to play Shaw on 9/14 @ Malone in what I assume was the return game from 2017.

    Shaw will now host Bowie State in an official non-conference game that date.
