Subject: Duquesne's 2013 Schedule and beyond

Duquesne will open the 2013 season at home against Albany on August 30th. We will return the favor by playing in Albany in 2015.

The Dukes will also play D-2 West Liberty at home this season. There is an attempt being made to keep Monmouth on the Dukes' schedule. The Dukes will be playing Youngstown State in 2013 and 2014 with both games being away as I understand it. The Dukes will play Dayton away in 2013 and at home in 2014.

Look for the Dukes to play powerhouse Georgia Southern away in 2014, and Buchnell in 2015 and 2016.

I still don't understand why Monmouth joined the MAAC.

A while back I raised the same question with Phil Racicot, Duquesne Associate AD/Administration, and responsible for arranging the Dukes' football schedule. Here's what Phil e-mailed me:

"As for [Monmouth] joining the MAAC it makes sense for them, and these days that is all that matters. From a basketball standpoint the MAAC is typically better, typically the conference RPI is in the middle third (17-20) whereas the NEC is normally bottom third (24-27). Overall the MAAC can offer a better media deal, a neutral site championship and other events (Disney/ESPN etc.), branding/identity upgrades can come with new in-market rivalries by adding both Monmouth and Quinnipiac. Across the board the MAAC is better in the Olympic sports as well (especially an emphasis on lacrosse)."
