    Hmm weird. UNH and VT 3 times each and 1 of the 3 against VT isn't in the Catamount Cup? Must be mistakes.

    Unless the format has changed, they do that weird format where the match ups are set in advance, and the winner is determined by goal differential over both games. That means Lowell will probably not be playing Vermont in the tournament.

    I wonder if UMA will be paired with Lowell in the Catamount Cup? I hope not.

    On paper, that looks like a weak OOC schedule. ASU has been getting better each season though.

    I'm not surprised to see Bentley given the new arena. I assume UML will visit them the year after in the new barn.

    The Catamount Cup is Vermont, Lowell, Harvard, and St. Lawrence.

    UNO, St. Lawrence and Clarkson are the only appetizing matchups OOC. If we play Harvard, that would be great, otherwise it's SLU twice.

    Yeah if that's the whole OOC schedule the Omaha games would be about as close to "must win" as you can get in the second week of the season. Not gonna get any SOS bump from AZ, AIC or Bentley.

    I'm not a fan of the late November/December part of the schedule. 10 day break for Thanksgiving, Bentley on a Tuesday, 9 day break, home/home with BU, then a 3-week break for Christmas. That's almost too much time off, especially for the early part of the season.

    The home games with Bentley and AIC are on Tuesday nights.

    It's 34 games, so it's complete.

    The Catamount Cup games are both listed as "Harvard/St. Lawrence" on the schedule, and given that the Catamount has traditionally been a regular knockout tournament (winner plays winner for cup, loser plays loser for consolation) but rather played with predetermined matchups and the winner decided by goal differential, I'm led to believe Lowell will play both and the order hasn't been decided yet.

    I do wonder if some of this scheduling is to make it easier for the program to have some success this year. I think with the amount of talent that left, and a good number of frosh coming in, this might be a way to get them some "easier" games?

    Just to add it to this thread as well, Lowell Sun's article about the incoming frosh (and transfers)...

    It's good to see Charles Levesque coming in next season. Let's hope there isn't an issue with Erik Zohovs paperwork. I'm kind of surprised that they may bring in new recruit for next season.
