Saturday--May 27th, 2017

More news on Liberty's scheduling. I've said several times that the Flames are serious about their football. in 2019, Liberty opens their schedule against Syracuse -----at home.

A Syracuse blog discusses the Orange signing a three game series with Liberty.

Liberty's athletic dept has a post on the Flames future schedules including a 2019 contest with UMass at a date "TBA".

A home game against Syracuse in their second FBS season is pretty impressive...

Despite cutbacks, satellite camps remain an attractive destination at ODU. Wonder if UMass will attend.

The Orlando Sentinel ranks Hawaii #96 in their preseason review.

The Sentinel ranks Ohio as #101.

And Temple as #111.

I think the Sentinel's rankings for Ohio and Temple somewhat puzzling. Frank Solich's Ohio Bobcats have been one the MAC's most consistent teams. Ohio tied for the MAC East title and Solich is one of college football's best coaches. Temple finished 10-4 in 2016 and had the #3 rated defense in the country. The Owls may not be as good in 2017, but a #111 ranking seems much too pessimistic.
