Jug game moved to Cortland for some reason, so Ithaca only has 4 home games this year. Feels like the administration just didn't want the hassle of a big crowd in what's still a COVID year - and maybe if they have to restrict attendance and make people mad, they'd rather that be someone else's problem.

Cortland hosted in 2018 and Ithaca was the "home team" in Metlife Stadium in 2019. Since 2020 was a whitewash it's Cortland's turn. Union and Hobart are both visiting Butterfield this fall so they've both lost home games in the series. Seems to me the Bombers should be very happy with that.

I just think it's a bummer that this IC graduating class will never get a single home Jug game. Cortland lost their home game in 2020? Oh well, we lost ours in 2019.

Ithaca CHOSE to play their 2019 home game in Metlfe Stadium. There are other league rival games just as meaningful to those participating schools as the Jug game. Consider that RPI will play the Shoes game in Schenectady again this season, losing out on their home turn. It is what it is. Just be thankful they're playing.

Can I be the first to say that any preseason poll done this year is 100% speculative.  We have no idea about 50% of the players taking the field for any team.  It is going to be a wild ride
