Nope. My point is that other CAA teams are stepping up the plate (aka challenging opponents), while JMU is not.

How challenging were Towsons and UDels opponents on Dec 3, Dec 9, Dec 16 and Jan 7?

Yup, I think I will stick with the current philosophy that seems to lend itself a tad more to the big picture (winning titles and home playoff games). When you are going to get 4-5 ranked opponents over the course of the season combined with a FBS game not sure you really need to go overboard with OOC scheduling. There are no NEC or Pioneer league teams on the schedule this year. Have been replaced with SoCon and MEAC teams. Seems like an uptick to me with regards to conferences.

Also.....please remember whether it be NEC/Pioneer/SoCon/MEAC/Patriot/BigSouth these schools get a playoff bid.....you never know when you make the contract but you could be scheduling the conference champ and playoff team.

Towson is upgrading the schedule too. Sept 28, 2018 Citadel at Home and 29 or 31 August 2019 at Citadel. Plus the one BCS game each year.

I gotta remember this thread in case anyone ever asks me again how large playoffs take away from the regular season. #makeFcsPlayoffs16TeamsAgain

RE: Future FB Schedule (currently 2017-2019)
Knowing how strong our team is, how many of those teams (Citadel, NDSU, or other top teams) would want to schedule a home-and-home with us? We even tried to get one with NDSU and they said no.

Or look at it from the opposite side: Do you think Citadel fans are excited about playing Elon or Towson? Are NDSU fans booking trips to Newark? Or did NDSU and Citadel agree to these games because they are against opponents who don't suck too much? (They are certainly better than Pioneer opponents.)
