    Default 2019 Schedule

    St. A announced their 2019 schedule this week and the extra week for the NE-10 schedule has been solved. Like about 10 years ago or so, they will play a non-conference game against a fellow NE-10 school.

    St A and Assumption will play each other twice. Here is the quote from the release:

    With the departure of LIU Post and Merrimack to NCAA Division I, the new scheduling arrangement in the Northeast-10 Conference requires each team to play one of the league's nine programs twice. This year, the Hawks and the Greyhounds from Assumption College will do battle in a home-and-home series – the first meeting will not count toward NE10 standings.

    Thoughts?

    I had a feeling this was going to happen.

    Necessary...guess the rest of the league is doing it as well?

    Maybe New Haven will play another game against Southern?

    Apparently not. Franklin Pierce posted their schedule, which apparently includes Merrimack, but no "return game" against an NE-10 opponent. FPU opens the season against D3 Wesley, then open NE-10 play two weeks later in Rindge against Pace.

    Interesting - FPU’s OOC games are against a D3 school and a now-former NE10. Thinking Merrimack and Post will schedule a few NE10 opponents over the next couple years.

    Really strange what FP is billing as their "Inaugural NCAA Division II game" is against a D3 school.

    With the NE10 struggling to fill holes and the GMAC struggling to fill holes, sure seems like the two conferences could have solved a chunk of each other's problems.

    The travel distances might be a bit of a deal-killer. New England to Ohio isn't exactly a short trip...

    Considering Eastern New Mexico travelled to West Liberty in 2017, I'd say New England and the GMAC are in each other's back yard In all seriousness though, the PSAC and MEC and teams like Bowie State in the CIAA would be more ideal as far as travel goes--previous schedule engagements notwithstanding.

    Would NE10 teams receive payouts from LIU-Post and Merrimack as is customary when scheduling a D-1 opponent?
