Is that rumor based on anything, or from someone who tends to know what they're talking about? Or is it one of those conversations around this time of year that goes something like "Hey, our team still has a couple of open dates. I wonder who in-state that wouldn't be an RPI-killer could be lurking out there?"

I do not know if a game with GMU is on the schedule this year...but George Mason is one of the colleges
Tony has been working with to set up some kind of a four or six year home and home rotation series with. The others are Richmond, VCU and George Washington.

Comment on Masonhoops board with reliable sources now projetcs we will be playing there in early December.

So far from what we know or can reasonably assume:

Home
ODU
Hampton
D3 team

Away
Ohio State
Central Florida
George Mason
Savannah State

That's 7 of 12 slots available (or is it 11?)

I think we also have a home game against Marshall. And was that game against Savannah State confirmed to be part of a H/H?

After the game with Savannah last year, someone on here did make a comment that it was part of a H/H.

We may also be returning game to Liberty.

The NBA guru's called it Mike's system. It really isn't Mike or Dan's system but Mike and Dan's 103 year old father's system. Lewis D'Antoni came up with and implemented this system in the 1950s at Mullins HS, in Mullins WV.

Since Mullins was a smaller community they didn't usually have the size or quickness to play against teams like Huntington HS, Stonewall Jackson HS. Those schools always had more students to pull from. So Lewis devised a system where the ball moved a lot more than the players. A concept that no one had ever seen. Also they were shooting the ball 21-24 feet away from the basket (Way before the 3 point line) making the height advantage somewhat moot. No one had ever done that either, it was always get the ball down the court and throw it in the paint and score.

He lead Mullins HS to the 1955 state title over Huntington HS, this was before classifications so there was only 1 state winner each year.

Mike and Dan have refined their dads system over the years and they still bounce idea's off of each other when something they do works.

2017-18 Basketball Schedule
Interesting tweet I saw from Ohio St about their ooc schedule

"Ohio State's home MBB games: Robert Morris, Radford, Texas So., Northeastern, Clemson, William & Mary, App. St., Citadel, and Miami (OH)."

"In case you're wondering, Ohio State is paying $95,000 to each of their non-con home opponents, except William & Mary ($90,000)"

Why are we taking less? Poor negotiating?

We are taking less because it's a home and home ... we're going to pay them $90,000 when they come to Kaplan.

Especially sinceNortheastern and App State also both get 95k... I could see an upper mid major like WM getting less because we're neither a free win (Like a Radford or Texas Southern) or a big neough name to bring out fans (Like Clemson or even an in-state opponent like Miami).
