Just got non-conference schedule details for W&J for the next five years:

W&J will open 2018 AT St. John Fisher, 2nd year of this current home & home.

The Presidents will then play home & home with Wittenberg (2019-2020) and John Carroll (2021-2022).
All are early September games.

Those are pretty cool Week 1/Week 2 matchups. I like!

Pretty clear they are using their OOC game as a “test” rather than a “tune up.”

Probably also more confident in being able to run the PAC table?

Came across this aerial photo of DiSanto Field @ Case Western Reserve. 

Really captures the field's unique setting:

Thomas More has released its schedule for 2018.  Its a really tough one in terms of having 7 road games, distance to be traveled and who they have scheduled. 

There are four games which really stand out:  At home vs. UW Plattville and Muhlenberg , road games Saint Johns and Huntington.

You'll also notice they have their first D2 opponent since the Dean Paul era.. when they host Lake Erie College.

The life of a DIII independent is getting less and less practical. I wonder how many of these are home and homes.

Incredibly challenging here, but if the Saints can get through the D-III portion of that schedule with one loss, it looks like a pretty good at-large profile, iyam.

I bet not many.

A quick look shows that for the seven away games Thomas More will travel a smidge over 3200 miles.  Hanover is closest:  72 miles.  E & H: 217 miles.  The other five are 400+ miles, with three games more than 600 miles from Crestview Hills:  N.C. Wesleyan--429; Huntingdon--547;  St. Lawrence--618; St. Scholastica--657;  St. John's--674.  Maybe they will fly to a couple of games; but if they bus, those are difficult odysseys.

I wanna say that it's going to be one.  Pool B eligible teams are the NEWMAC plus Thomas More and those nine teams should be over the threshold for a Pool B bid.

Would love for CWRU to pick up those in the alternate years.
