Only partially. Comparing the respective 2nd year schedules:
2004 CCU: 5 at most full scholly I-AA/0 playoff teams (played 3 non scholly Pioneer/3 Div II
2010 ODU : 7 at most full scholly I-AA/0 playoff teams (played 2 non scholly Pioneer, NEC at the time Monmouth, & 1st year GST).
2016 ETSU: 9 full scholly I-AA/4 playoff teams.

Their new stadium:

JMU will be ETSU's I-A game next season so to speak. Looking at their schedule I could see them being 4-4 or 5-3 in he So-Con, 6-5 or 7-4 overall. At a minimum they'll be better than NSU, URI, and Elon.

I know the teams' schedules in their first two years weren't apples to apples at all, but strictly looking at win total.

ODU - 17
CCU - 16
ETSU - 7

That's a big difference and part of why we shouldn't worry.

Didn't we play ETSU in the mid to late 90's?
I get that the program was revitalized, but it doesn't mean it's going to be any better.

The last time we played them was in 1997. A 32-27 win at JMU.

The 6 pm start means they get home after midnight if they stay for the entire game and fireworks. A number of people I spoke with on Godwin Field a few years ago complained about the 6 pm start to me. I am assuming these same people complained in their surveys too. A 4 pm start allows these folks to drive home Saturday and not have the hotel expense.

There is a lesson here. Dont get old, plus 6pm = longer for tailgate.

Getting old is better than the alternative, Bud! But yes, I agree a 6pm start makes for a longer tailgate.

Yeah, at the time we played them, ETSU was ranked 6th in the country. I don't think they ended the season in the playoffs though.

Yeah, ETSU in Year 3 will be better than a Morehead St. team for sure. If we didn't have Houston, I would be a tiny bit nervous. But we do. So I'm not.

Their stadium used to be indoors and completely flat. They referred to it as "The Mini Dome". By their own admission, it was the absolute worst stadium ever built for D-1 football. They also used to play their basketball games in there. They now have a new facility for football.

Interesting to release them before we even know if our conference has a tv contract. I guess that's not a good sign?

Why not? We are The Dukes of J-M-F#%&ing-U. What other CAA teams/games are even remotely in the league of the Defending Champions? None of them, that's what.

Dukes!

If you haven't reserved a hotel room yet for the home opener, you better hurry up. Going fast. Lots of hotels sold out already.

One of the first things I did about a month ago was getting a hotel for the opener. Had assumed it would be a later game with the championship banner and all
