    Since there's no time listed for the football game, it may be flexible based on TV coverage, which Air Force has had to deal with in the past. The ice arena and football field are far enough apart with ample parking to handle both at compatible times, but I don't think they'd want a late afternoon or night football game and hockey game overlapping.

    Re: >>> RIT Tigers Offseason: Looking forward to more in 2019-20 <<<

    There are a couple of interesting things I noticed with the schedule. First, the exhibition game is on a Sunday in December this year. That seems really odd to me. It's usually the 1st game of the year, which makes a lot of sense as a warm-up before the season truly begins. Has this happened before? I can't remember any previous year where the exhibition game was so far into the season.

    Second, half of the home Saturday games are at 5:05 instead of 7:05. Personally, I'm a big fan of this. I think it should bring bigger crowds. People who don't like to stay out late will be more interested. People who like to go out to the bars, parties, etc. on a Saturday night can come to the game and still go out after and not feel like they're late.

    The last time I remember this happening was when we played the US U18 team in January 2009.

    The league has asked teams to do that to allow earlier travel time home for the visitors. Some schools like RIT oblige. Others (you can see who from the schedule) do not.

    On the Tigers' schedule, Army is the only one that did, so far.
    I have a feeling the AIC game times are out of their hands since they play in an AHL arena, so they might get an early start time by default.
    I suppose Canisius and Niagara don't really count, though. They don't need earlier travel time to get from Buffalo and Lewiston to Henrietta, certainly.
    So really, only Holy Cross and Robert Morris aren't feeling the love on RIT's schedule. Is it just RIT, or do they do that across the board, I wonder (too lazy to look up their schedules)?

    Nobody mentioned the RIT schedule is showing the AHA Tournament at the HarborCenter again.

    I noticed it, but wasn't surprised by it. I expected that would be the case. Also, the Air Force schedule lists it is Buffalo (but I guess they still call it "AHC" so we can't trust them anyway).

    RIT does seem to think they'll be hosting a first round series though.

    No exhibition game as a warm-up this year. Straight into Colgate, then homecoming.

    Only one home non-conference game, and it's at the BCA. No non-conference opponents at the GPC.

    I was hoping the Sacred Heart games would be in the morning. 😂

    They have a pair of home games at the GPC against UMass-Lowell, 1/10 and 1/11.

    Well that's what I get for skimming.

    AIC does play quite the number of 2 pm games due to sharing the rink. I was also told if there is a home game Friday night for the AHL team, that AIC will not do 2 pm friday and 7 pm saturday.

    I think the reference is to the annual Canadian University exhibition that is normally (for most NCAA schools) in the first two weekends of the season.

    The NTDP games were schedule fillers that could happen any time throughout the season.
    Side note: It's probably good those don't pop up on the schedule anymore. That team is light years better than they were back when RIT used to play them occasionally.

    A few teams have scheduled their Canadian opponent during the break over the last few seasons. It's an opportunity to get back into the swing of playing after taking time off in the schedule for exams and the holidays.

    I might have been thrown off by the two extra non-conference games. Mentally counted to four before I got to "wrapping up the non-conference schedule", saw "Arizona State" and ignored Lowell.

    Don't you know better than to look past an opponent yet? It'll bite you every time.

    And that makes you angry? 🤨

    Riddle me this, do you guys camp overnight in New England or drive through the night after the Saturday game?
