2017-2018 St. Bonaventure Bonnies

OK, someone had to do it...

Here's an excerpt from the OTH, Kenney opining on the upcoming schedule:

"As previously announced, the Bonnies are one of four headliners for the 2017 Emerald Coast Classic, a four-game exempt tournament that concludes on Thanksgiving weekend in Niceville, Fla. As part of that, they’ll play two home games against lower-level opponents (most likely Jackson State and Maryland Eastern Shore) and ideally get New Mexico (RPI of 86 in 2016-’17) and either TCU (No. 67) or Maryland (No. 34) on a neutral floor.

Kenney said Bona also has a signed agreement with a team in the “40-60 range” and is hoping to continue its trend of playing a road game against a Power 5 opponent and adding at least one more “middle of the pack” home-and-home to annual foes Canisius, Niagara, Buffalo and Siena and the two other home games it would need to fill.

With this setup, Bona is hoping to create a more rugged out-of-conference slate and give itself more cracks at the Top 100, a needed addition if there aren’t as many built-in opportunities in the A-10 again next year."

Re: 2017-2018 St. Bonaventure Bonnies

That's good to hear, Res.

Assuming that we won't host a P5 or any AAC team, might SBU host one of the following teams? Illinois St., Middle Tennessee, Nevada, Princeton or Vermont? Nevada is probably a stretch as is ISU, but Princeton would probably be a buy game.

We've had good luck the last four years with our new home and homes. Play them when they are good in the RC, then return the trip when they lose their key players. Iona, Delaware, and Hofstra were all good gets, but I believe we lost to Iona and Hofstra at home and then won on the road.

That tournament should be solid for the Bonnies as TCU and Maryland both should be solid teams next year. The Lobos have been pretty mediocre the last three years, so who knows about them.

So it looks like Jackson State, UMES, @Can isius, @ Siena, @ Buffalo, Niagara, New Mexico (N), TCU/Maryland (N), @p 5, a new H-H, and two buys. Does that sound right?

It would be nice to get a solid MAC school on the schedule. Kent St. might be a good add, but it looks like they lose their top three scorers.

If TCU looks anything like they've looked down the stretch of this season, they will be very good. Tournament team.

Kent St. seems unlikely to become a real opponent. They are typically the super secret scrimmage team before the season.

It is shaping up to be a good schedule. I like the idea of getting a Vermont, Princeton or Bucknell on the schedule all should be solid teams.

You will get at least two of those types of games, Jive.

I heard that UD is looking for a buy game for next year.

Not with what's sure to be a middling A-10 team.
