I was talking about the LEAGUE's OOC schedule.

In years past, we've played UNH, Towson, Army, Villanova, William and Mary, CPSLO, SUNY-Albany and the usual PL/NEC/PFL teams.

On slate for 2017 is Delaware (a shell of its former self) and the usual PL/NEC/PFL teams.

That's a dropoff. If you disagree, go ahead and make your case.

Now, you want to talk about Dartmouth in particular, I fully acknowledged--repeatedly--that our 2010-15 schedule was a dropoff from our 2000s schedule. My objection was people treating the "Butler Bowl" as if it was some D-III scrimmage when Butler--unlike 95% of the OOC opponents that year--actually went to the FCS playoffs.

Does that clarify?

Butler was a playoff stand-in for San Diego that year. 1st Place San Diego was sanctioned by the PFL.

The Butler Bowl is the name of their stadium, btw.

I know about the stadium. But "Butler Bowl" was a derisive term used by some posters on this board when referring to the D-B series (even the game in Hanover).

I never claimed that Butler was UNH. But they weren't Adams State either.

Dartmouth weak scheduling: It's what we need! It makes us better! It's good thing!

Everyone else: Weak-ass! (Implication = not a good thing)

I believe teams should schedule at least one, preferably two, OOC challenges, which is why I disagreed with the Dartmouth weak-ass approach a few years ago, the Harvard approach now, and other teams that adopt it going forward.

If you don't see the difference between individual teams and the league as a whole, I can't help you.

As an Ivy fan, I'm glad Cornell is playing a tough OOC. But if I were a Cornell fan, I'd be less sure it's best for the program to do so.

Archer still needs wins.
