@Flying Weasel -- re Kenyon's home/away imbalance -- I don't know how it might work in terms of conference, but the fact that Kenyon does not have lights so 7pm starts become impossible at a certain point in the fall could be a factor in scheduling home/away matches.

IIRC similar concern was expressed about Kenyon's lack of lights last year.  Certainly having lights provides more flexibility but I think there are other NCAC schools that play all or almost all games during the day.  I noticed the imbalance in Kenyon's schedule too.  Nothing new really, at least in terms of the overall number of home and away tilts.  I used to think it was to help with SoS before but that actually never seemed to pan out as expected.  As a parent it was annoying to have so few home games, but I never heard that it had anything to do with a lack of lights.  After all, Kenyon has managed to host multiple Sectional and 1st and 2nd round NCAA games in recent years as well as a Final Four in the more distant past.  At any rate, my guess is that there is some correlation with inherit scheduling difficulties for games with DePauw, Wabash and Allegheny (and for them too).  I can't recall Kenyon ever playing a night game in Greencastle or Crawfordsville but I could be wrong.  The issue there is that any mid-week game -- day or night -- involves an overnight and missed classes, so Saturdays are better for those games, and making two separate trips to Indiana isn't optimal (while understanding that DePauw and Wabash have to make multiple trips East and Allegheny also has more of a burden than the Ohio schools).  I'm glad DePauw and Wabash are in the NCAC and they add a lot, but I wonder if the administrations of those schools struggle with the viability.  Centre, now in the South Atlantic, probably is just as doable or more so than the Indiana schools, and as an aside, if the NCAC was looking to add a school Centre would be high on my list.

Note:  I was curious about Centre, thinking that Oberlin, Allegheny and maybe the Indiana schools would be an unrealistic stretch.....but over 8.5 hours from Danville to Conway, AR (Hendrix) and over 9 hours to Jackson, MS (Millsaps).

SOS should be improved with the addition of Amherst, Conn College, Endicott & possibly Western New England which had a solid team last year. Four NESCAC opponents are probably the most by any non-NESCAC team.

Wow, fair enough, Babo! I felt the last few years that they had scheduled a bit easier than in the past, but I guess they learned the hard way last year after being NEWMAC favorites and having their SoS/RvR keep them out of Pool C contention after that hard-luck NEWMAC final loss. I do feel like you can go too gung-ho on scheduling tough opponents (as I felt Brandeis did last year and, out of region, CWRU did for a while), the key is striking the balance in the middle between a solid schedule and one that your team can handle (easier said than done as foresight is much less than 20/20). Either way, I would agree that four out-of-conference NESCAC opponents is probably the most in New England.
He's our center half, he's our number four, watch him defend, and we watch him score, he'll pass the ball, calm as you like, he's Virgil van Dijk, he's Virgil van Dijk.

I think you can look at the 2017 Capital season - and OWU for years - as proof that strong schedules with a winning record vs ranked is hard to pass on (for post season committees).  And given the changes in strength of teams we know a preseason schedule may appear tougher than it plays out. So kudos to the teams challenging their squads.
