Wonder why they only went back to 2002? The history is much longer.

JMU has some scorers. This game will all depend on how we defend. I also think we have an advantage in the paint as well. We should blow them out.

They're using the history of the website. 2002 is the oldest season where all games are on posted to it.

All depends on if we can contain projected lottery pick, Ramone Snowden.

In all serioussness, they aren't good....on offense or defense. They are a terrible offense that just plays fast and shoots poorly. They would have to get hot from 3 to keep this close (are a 27% 3 point shooting team and 56% from the stripe)

This series needs to be a long-term home/home arrangement - just like vcu, b&m, and Richmond. There is too much history to not play each other regularly. And we should stop scheduling MD-eastern - or schedule Norfolk State or Hampton in their place.

This cluster of games really makes me miss the CAA days and reinforces how much I prefer to be in a regional conference.

JMU fans are already asking for Rowe's head after the GMU loss. Let's give them more of a reason to riot.

Northeastern? And while I like hating JMU for football, they haven't been a factor in basketball in a long ass time, and Mason, well, nobody here has been clamoring to add them to the OOC, and ODU already plays W&M, VCU and Richmond every year with other current/expat CAA teams making appearances. Other than maybe Charleston (when they're good) I don't especially care if we play anyone with CAA ties other than the three we play every year anyway. And to be honest if the W&M game drifted off the schedule I wouldn't be happy but I wouldn't be beating my chest and tearing at my rags over it either.

They also realize that a loss in Norfolk is almost predestined, not sure if we're going to move that needle much

Especially since NE could go to **** at any time. Not really a desirable basketball location.

Until JMU cares about their basketball program, I’m not going to care about their basketball program. I think this is a 2 for 1 scheduling deal so I can understand that from an administrative standpoint but in general I’d like to see a stronger OOC schedule rather than old regional foes

I think Jeff is planning to get Mason and possibly GWU back on the OOC within the next season or two. Hopefully can get our DMV recruiting up.

They're building a very nice new arena. How much more can they do to show they care? They also took a recruit we supposedly really wanted, so they're seeing the benefits of that already. I'd rather beat up on JMU than FIU or Rice.

Their fan support is still suboptimal, and I can't blame them since they traditionally field a team that can't do much better than bottom half of a CAA that no longer has the top 3 teams in it. For their season opener, they had 3k in attendance. Not much fan support, but maybe that will get better with the new arena. JMU fans (at least the several I interact with) are a one trick pony and only care about FCS football.

To speak to your 2nd points, I think I could name 200 schools that I'd rather play than Rice and all the other Texas schools in conference (I do have a soft spot for UTEP, an underrated basketball program). FIU is up and coming, their entire staff is from the VCU coaching tree so I think they will be a fun team to play soon enough. I do get the bigger point, our conference mates are far and nobody cares about them, and I generally agree. However there are plenty of other schools I'd rather have on the schedule than JMU, pretty much any other basketball-first school.

Well, FIU and Rice are conference mates so we don't have much choice. Kind of like the saying "You can't choose your family". But we can choose our friends. They do have a nice arena in development and had a good recruiting class. If they improve then great. If we're playing them instead of UMES then great. I'm just saying playing them in MBB right now is not moving the needle for me just because we used to be conference mates. It's hard to tell who is going to be good from year to year but UNCG, Liberty & Davidson are regional and a lot better additions to the schedule. I'm sure Richmond and VCU probably have had similar conversations about us in past years.

And FIU is MUCH better than JMU.

Because our FB team isn't very good and JMU would have a great chance at beating us. Who would want to see that?

I don't think it would happen, but yeah, that would be terrible. Especially after kicking their ass when they thought their team was hot ****.

I was thinking about getting a suite for this game. Anyone know if the suite prices are negotiable?
