Yes, so with all OOC games you need to decide, does the expected increase in credit (reward) outweigh the expected increased risk of loss...
I’m not injecting Dayton’s scheduling philosophy in a VCU thread, but I think you play the game that gives the best reward. Winning Q3/4 games doesn’t move the NET needle. Here is a recent DDN article where Neil Sullivan makes some interesting comments about scheduling, specifically in conference playing the most q1/q2 games possible. OOC he trying to get 4 tournament quality teams plus the games at the Battle 4 Atlantis which will be a loaded field.

I should have put it in the Around the League thread because this news became about the A10. Bernie told David Teel it was not about dropping series but they are suggesting that teams try their best to play sub-100 NET games on the road.

And would explain why we are replacing ODU with a top 10 road game W&M…
Well, it will take a year to get this right but one thing that is difficult is predicting who will be beneficial. It is like preseason polls with coaches deciding. Ha! UR probably wanted to honor the away game with W&M on the road this year. I am surprised that VCU canceled ODU this year because they would have been at the Stu.

We will see how it finally shakes out. But for now it appears we canceled this year's game at ODU for a home game vs W&M as the START of a H&H series...

Don't want to keep adding this on your thread but both teams claim it starts as a home game for them, and appears to be 4 to 6 games...
Someone on here claimed at one time after a close game with W&M that they were a top team so maybe it will work out. 🤣

Bernie says it is time to throw out those 100+ NET road games.
