    If this is all true, that's a HUGE blunder on the part of someone who's job is ostensibly to schedule and coordinate these games. Not sure which school (Salem would be a reasonable guess, though) or employee dropped the ball on this, but that's a big-time embarrassment for somebody.

    After a full slate of games last night across several of these leagues, most teams have probably dismissed their guys for the holiday weekend at this point. I'm not sure IUP will get it filled.
    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.

    As expected, it appears Salem isn't coming.

    Wonder if they can find a game on short notice.

    So, Salem played a game last night. In the recap today, this was the last sentence:

    Up Next
    The Tigers will compete in their last game before the break at Lake Erie College on Wednesday at 2 p.m.




    It sure doesn't sound like they know they are on the IUP schedule this weekend. LOL. WTF is going on? This is really strange.
    Has anyone contacted them? Seriously! VSU was added later. We thought Salem was the sure shot in team. Wtf???

    I have to assume they are coming they way Jack and Joe were talking last night. But, man, that is 5 away games in 8 days for Salem. Life of the independent, I suppose.

    The other really odd thing is Salem even put out a Tweet about the 'week ahead' and had all the sporting events listed -- but didn't mention the two games this week at IUP. Odd for sure.
    So Salem doesn't look like their typical lay up self this year. Could be an interesting weekend IF THEY SHOW UP! hahaha

    The first 'Hawk Talk Coach Lombardi' show was on the radio last night (filmed/broadcast from the Hilton).

    Couple items of note:

    * Joe said Morris had a great practice Monday and will return this weekend. He said had the Bowie State game been a playoff game he would have went. Morris was also promoted to team captain yesterday along with Armoni and Shawndale.

    * IUP will play Syracuse next year for its exhibition

    * He said Ethan Porterfield had a battle with bronchitis through the first several games and it hampered him a bit ... said it has run his course and he's looking better.

    * Said Demo's minutes will now bump up in to the low 30s moving forward as he's played his way back. Demo was this weeks guest.

    * Joe said they know a big test is looming Saturday and they are excited for it.

    * The team is delivering hams and turkeys today to families in need in Indiana


    Much different show than the football version. Joe is pretty 'interview savy' so it has a better flow to it along with some humor. Despite Salem not having this game on its schedule, they are under the impression they are coming. LOL.

    Armoni and Shawndale both start at Pitt right now. That's not sarcasm. They are better than any of Pitt's guards.
    I can't disagree with you...

    I agree! I'm not saying Will Jeffress is a bad player but he's not ready for that big stage of the ACC. I put Will next to Demo/Ethan and our two guys stack up better right now. Demo is a much better defender and shooter! Also, look at the IUP/Illinois game. Illinois is way better than Pitt and IUP hung with them for the better part of 32 minutes without Armoni!

    Capel has no chance of surviving this season. They are going to be historically awful once ACC play starts. Winless, likely. One more injury or arrest and they'll have a 6-man rotation.

    Yes, Will Jeffress starts for Pitt and he wouldn’t start at IUP.

    My fantasy would be to have IUP play Pitt this year at the KCAC. Men’s and women’s games. Might just fill the arena for that. I know, never happen but it would be a great charity event
