    Sporting News #22 but picked us to win PL. :D



    Lindy’s has us as No. 12:

    "Interesting football," to borrow a phrase from lfnadmin, to say the least! Perhaps, it ranks as the toughest test any PL team will face in terms of out of conference foes – that is with the possible exception of Fordham who will take on UConn (picked to finish 7th in the BCS Big East) in its season-opener and later go up Columbia (7th Ivy), Rhode Island (10th Colonial), Penn (1st Ivy), and close out their OOC schedule against Army (BCS Independent). Hey, good for them and their scholarship players. They won’t have the right to represent PL come tournament time, anyway.

    A closer look at our out of conference schedule shows:
    Opponent / Home or Away / AGS Preseason Poll / Sporting News Poll / Predicted (Sporting News) League Finish

    Monmouth / Away / – / – / 7th NEC
    UNH / Home / 10th / 11th / 3rd Colonial
    Princeton / Away / – / – / 6th Ivy
    Liberty / Home / 19th / 20th / 1st Big South
    Yale / Home / – / – / 3rd Ivy

    You couldn’t have drawn it up any better with the presumed toughest games at home and the weakest ones the road. Except for facing Colgate up in Hamilton, the same can be said about our PL calendar of games with Holy Cross, Georgetown and Lafayette scheduled to close-out the year on consecutive Saturdays at Goodman.


    Athlon has us ranked #14. Very decent summary of top FCS schools. UNH ranked just ahead of us and Liberty around #20. I see us as a real underdog only against UNH. Liberty a toss up, but we win due to home field advantage. Raiders in Hamilton always a tough game, but with confidence from last year’s thrashing, very doable.
