    IUP's really strong, but they are going to take some losses this year. The PSAC is too deep this year.

    I fully expect a war on Saturday. If only you guys could watch it. Maybe next year we can afford to have a video.
    Yeah, I enjoy the games with IUP, even if Ship is on the losing end most of the time. I know coach Fite, after several years as an assistant at IUP, enjoys the rivalry. I'm certainly glad he made the move to Ship as he brought a quantum improvement to our BB program.

If IUP is firing on all cylinders, I can't see Kutztown or Shepherd giving them a lot of trouble. But stranger things have happened.

    The issue is there is a set limit of games a D2 team is allowed to play in the regular season. I'd assume most are maxed out, schedule-wise. There are some exceptions for these 'tournament' weekends but I don't know all the details.

    Fairmont State is off. Turn this into a mini-Regional.


    I know starting Saturday, IUP starts a brutal stretch.

    Virginia State
    TBD - Sunday
    @ Kutztown
    @ West Chester
    Millersville
    Shepherd
    Shippensburg
    XMAS BREAK
    @ California

    Irony ... Salem women play at KCAC today.

    Tom should run it up !
    Cancel it due to Covid and screw them out of travel expenses.

    Confirmed in the Gazette today. Salem isn't coming. The article said, essentially, Salem 'overbooked' its schedule and coming here would put them over the max games allowed.

    As of today, IUP has not found a replacement.

    Bethany is available (in theory). PSU-Altoona and Pitt-Greensburg are booked.

    Bethany and Westminster did come here in 2018 and 2019.

    IUP's schedule for Sunday now reads:

    IUP vs TBD


    As expected, it appears Salem isn't coming.

    Wonder if they can find a game on short notice.
    Maybe you’ll get your wish and Pitt will come :).

    I doubt it, too. I think each team has a limit on games allowed per regular season (any idea what the D2 limit is)? I think it is 28 or 29. So, most teams have full schedules set.

    It's definitely real because as we've been pointing out all week Salem didn't have it on the schedule and is in the midst of 3 road games in 8 days. That would have made 5 road games in 8 days - and put Salem at 30 games.

    Add to it IUP altered the schedule yesterday to TBD for Sunday ... it's true and there is a major screw up somewhere.

    Probably the only thing they might be able to find is a D3 team.

    UPJ likely gets a say in the opponent, also, at this point as it now effects them, too. UPJ was to play Salem on Saturday.
    What a mess.

    And you're right. Somebody like PSU-Fayette might be all they can muster at this point. Which will be a real waste of a Thanksgiving weekend for IUP & UPJ. I repeat: what a mess. And a real black eye for Salem--an independent who relies on fostering good relationships with other programs just to get games!
