One way to improve a program is to improve the schedule.UMBC and Providence replaced by Stony Brook and NJIT? I hope this is not a harbinger of the new administrations alleged commitment to athletic upgrading. Smacks of Blind era desperation with all those MEAC opponents.

NJIT had been a previous contract, NJIT gave up last years game so we could schedule Providence. Despite the fact that UMBC did well last year, the Stoneybrook game is better for us. Somehow I wonder why most want to lose all their OOC games, especially for a team that has trouble getting out of single digit wins.

Should we, a poor team, be looking to find worse teams to beat or should we be trying to improve as a program by playing tough teams and seeing wehat it takes to be a winner? I know talent is crucial but the level of competition and playing at bigger venues also is a significant factor.

It is scary how people on't unbderstand that winning must come first. I guess running first before you learn how to walk is the mantra of the faithful. Look at what the suicide schedule has done for Fairfield for the last ten years. Get a team first, if that don' work, get a coach, get a decent record and then start upgrading your schedule. Recruits don't look at the schedule, they look at the won lost record of your program.

Dunne can't afford another less than 10 win season unless you nhave the logic of Sludge.

Nothing to do with logic, just pragmatism. John will suffer considerably from a single digit season, putting his job squarely on the line the following year. Still, not necessarily convincing that others can perform better given the legacy left by the last regime.

"Recruits don't look at the schedule, they look at the won lost record of your program".

True in small part. Easiest measurement for kids to digest is the quality of the league as described by their "handlers". W/L is next since most kids are really not up on schedules/opponents.

Dunne was left with more than adequate talent as a legacy. The fact that he did little to nothing with it does not vaildate your premise. As I said you violate logic constantly.

While I agree with your 2nd part, a coach has much more influence than you want to admit. One needs only watch the change at some other MAAC schools with a change in coaches.

Of course a coach has a great deal of influence. You find a measure that tells me how much. Those above do make a difference. Gonzalez tested the limits while Byrnes (sp) looked the other way. Same with Iona in their better years. Even Loyola has allowed more leash for Patsos. Give me a first class facility and I too would become a better coach (see recruiter/players).
