    West Chester vs Bentley
    Shepherd vs SCSU
    Millersville vs St. Anselm
    ESU vs Pace
    Bloom vs Stonehill
    Edinboro vs Franklin Pierce

    Nice round of intra conference play there to help with region seeding.
    Stonehill is no longer in D2.

      IUP will be playing when most of the teams on that list are at their end of year banquet. So, it will work out.
      Sure, Jan.

        West Chester gave shepherd all they could handle in shepherdstown last year as well. They were very young and I think are gonna be a contender this year.
        They were an up-and-down young team. They didn't look too impressive at Ship, but they did have some excellent individual talent. A couple of their pass rushers were excellent.

          They really need a W vs Bentley or with SRU visiting Farrell in week 2, the G'RAMS are staring at an 0-2 start. That would be almost fatal in the East.

            I don’t know, looks like everyone went for cupcakes.

            IUP’s no opponent the first is about as tough as who everyone is playing.

                Bloom is playing a D1 program. Whoopee

                  The NE-10 has been ravaged in recent years by schools moving to DI-AA/FCS and being forced to bring in schools with much weaker and/or not previously established programs. Also, if you're a PSAC team in the eastern half of Pennsylvania, who are your most logical non-conference opponents geography-wise? Besides Lincoln, Bowie State, and potentially nearby DI-AA/FCS teams (who in many cases would risk incurring a loss to the PSAC team), there aren't exactly many opponents who make sense.

                    It just is part of Nations process to jab the rest of the league so he feels better about IUP’s position.

                    IUP enthusiasm is really skyrocketing here headed into the year with the expectations, hope the team backs it up.

                      Well, IUP over-hype is a long-standing tradition.

                      Of course, that over-hype consists of about 10 dudes on a D2 message board.

                      But, their expectations should be high. Putting up another 7-3 with 18 starters back would be a disaster.

                      I think their culture will be much better this year.

                        There are but nobody wants to play a D3 school for the same reason the FCS teams don't want to play PSAC teams.

                          Getting through the first five weeks, @SHIP @ESU MC SRU @CAL will tell the tale. Ideal would be 5-0, realistic 4-1, downside 3-2. Time will tell.

                            Correct. I'm cautiously optimistic.

                              Uh…it’s non IUP fans who keep talking about IUP’s lack of an 11th game. I’m just mocking them.
