Weird, wild stuff. CoC is hosting a tournament that they aren't playing in.
That is a really nice game for Delaware to host Notre Dame in their bandbox

Brey is helping out his former assistant and the school he used to coach for with a game in Newark. Having walked those sidelines as a young coach he knows how big a deal it is to have Notre Dame visit.

Added Northeastern and William & Mary both playing at Ohio State.

Northeastern at Ohio State is technically part of the PK80 Invitational - but it is not a part of the main bracketed tournament.

Ohio State is paying $95,000 to each of their non-conference home opponents, except William & Mary ($90,000)

ODU released their full schedule. They open with a heavy dose of the CAA again this year:
Towson (home opener)
at JMU
Charleston Classic (Hofstra also in Charleston Classic)
at W&M

They also play early in the season:
at VCU
Richmond

This is an ESPN sponsored early season tournament. The article mentions App State leveraging their brand to get in the tournament. I just sent Jeff Bourne an email. JMU has as strong a brand overall and on ESPN as App State does and this would be a huge win for the MBB rebirth. Aside from being televised the tournament includes Iowa State, South Carolina, Boise State, UTEP, Tulsa, and others. This is a fair criticism of Bourne that he missed out on this type of opportunity.

I suggest we hammer Bourne on this so that when the next opportunity comes along to be bigger picture he considers taking it. Coaches typically work on schedules but ADs can be creative and get involved. A CAA example is the creativity of Northeastern leveraging Hockey to get a home game against Michigan State in MBB (a game that they won).

I am usually pretty fair when it comes to Bourne but this is IMO an example of where he deserves criticism. No excuse for this- just like when he was on ESPN being interviewed during half time of a football game and he didn't even mention aspirations to be FBS. Another missed opportunity to brand the school and our athletics program to where we want to be in the future.

@JonRothstein
Appalachian State will replace Florida State in the 2017 Puerto Rico Shootout, per multiple sources.

RE: Future MBB Schedule
Some buzz on Twitter from the DNR beat writer that the JMU MBB Schedule is done pending signed contracts and that fans will be ecstatic - VCU, Va Tech, G Town or Maryland to go with the already announced OOC games- pure speculation on my part but in order for fans to be ecstatic I think there would have to be another major OOC opponent.

CoC can't play in the tournament they are hosting in their campus arena, but they can play in the Great Alaska Shootout tournament?

NCAA over-regulation at its finest

Charleston played in the Charleston Classic a season ago and before that in 2012 and 2008.
