2019 Schedule

Since itís difficult to follow spring matches, Iíll work on the 2019 schedule. tOSU scheduled 3 A-10 teams - which should help all the conference teamsí RPI. tOSU had a down year last year. They will be better this fall. They were so young last year.

UD travels to Columbus on Sept 20-21 to compete against tOSU, ILL St and Miami, OH. This is probably the strongest ďweek-before conference startsĒ weekend Iíve seen from UD. Iím hoping the rest of the schedule is as tough. Tournament will come down to UD or tOSU.

tOSU also hosts VCU, TX Tech and Lehigh the first weekend (Aug 30-31) and Sept 6-7 they play Pitt, DUQ and UW-GB at Pitt. Those are both very good pre-conference tournaments that helps our rpi.

SLU travels to Marquette Sept 20-21. Northern IA and UW-GB also at that tournament. Another strong non-conference outing.

UD will NOT play X this year. They are re-building so probably good for both programs.

Other 2019 options:

KY this year or next
Louisville
Cincinnati this year or next

Big10
MI - scheduled spring past 2 years but not this spring - so maybe
Purdue - TH scheduled them before during first tenure
ILL - played NCAAs their in 2018
Penn St - maybe
IA - trying to get better and they have a good coach now. They would probably jump at playing UD.

Stanford + Cal Poly + someone - Stanford’s weight/conditioning coach is a UD football alum and married to vball alum Rachael Bro. Nice West Coast trip for Flyers. Could also be WA w/Cal Poly - we played them well at Pitt last year.

Toledo - former UD assistant under TH (Jason Oliver) is HC at Toledo now.

Others: Creighton, Wichita St, College of Charleston, Kenesaw St, TN, Ohio, WKY, KS, Notre Dame. Maybe MO St? I can’t remeber if we have a contract still open with them?

Iíll also add NE - for next year since Iím sure itís too late this year. I donít think NE travels anymore to venues without AC. Same for Penn State. Itís still worth traveling to play either of these teams.

Sheffield went into NE in 2010 and lost.
Affolder went into NE is 2012 and lost.
NE played at UD after that, so under TH, and UD lost.

Iíd still go into Lincoln next year to try to knock them off. You have to go for biggest program win ever competition if you want to be a great program.

Some info I had gleaned from elsewhere, and if I have the conferences right, 2 from the SEC, Big10, AAC, MVC and MAC, and 1 from Big12 and ACC.

Filling in the teams with their 2018 finish...

2 SEC = #4 MO - plus I hope #1 KY
2 Big10 = #7 MI and #13 tOSU who will be much better this year.
2 ACC = probably #2 Cincy - any of the following would be good - #1UCF, #3 Tulane, #4 Tulsa, #7 Wichita State who had a down year last year and will be better.
2 MVC - #2 ILL St - plus one more. It won’t be #1 UNI. My guess is #5 MO St but could be #4 Valparasio or #3 Bradley
2 MAC - #2 Miami, #6 No ILL (no Ohio again this year?)
1 Big12 - probably #2 Baylor, but maybe #5 KS
1 ACC - probably not #1 Pitt. Guess is #2 Louisville or #6 Notre Dame who will be better this year.

2019 VB Release

exhibition : Pittsburgh
week 1 : Texas A&M, Florida and Louisville in Louisville
non-con: at Miami-Ohio
week 2 : Northern Illinois, Missouri and Michigan at Frericks
week 3 : SMU, Kansas State and Missouri State at Missouri State
week 4 : OSU Tournament
non-con: at Cincinnati

League: URI/Fordham/GMU/GW home and home
at La Salle, Duquesne and Saint Louis
hosting Davidson and VCU

Only 13 league games. That's a bit curious.

Edit: I think they missed a return game against Saint Louis. Currently the schedule shows an open weekend the first weekend in November.

exhibition : Pittsburgh GREAT Decision to go with a very tough exhibition match vs a red-blue scrimmage

week 1 : Texas A&M, Florida and Louisville in Louisville - we need that exhibit to get ready for this weekend. It will be one of the toughest pre-conference tournaments for D1 volleyball

non-con: at Miami-Ohio - Looks like we might be playing them twice this year

week 2 : Northern Illinois, Missouri and Michigan at Frericks - Another Top 10 pre-conference Tournament

week 3 : SMU, Kansas State and Missouri State at Missouri State - we owed MO St a match at their place. This is a better lineup than I was expecting. Kansas St is showing Weber St instead of SMU??? They both could be correct if they round-robin 5 teams at the event.

week 4 : Announced by another school as ILL St, Miami, OH and Ohio St at OSU

non-con: at Cincinnati - payback time. One we let slip away this past season.

League: URI/Fordham/GMU/GW home and home - article also has SLU as home-home with SLU at UD on Nov 1
at La Salle, Duquesne
hosting Davidson and VCU - Iím going with the line we are going to be so good and our rpi so small it wonít matter we only play VCU once. SLU better be a lot better this year. GW and GM should be better.

KY looks like a 2020 match which is a great start to that schedule. Louisville, Michigan and Missouri will also be in the mix.

Great schedule for 2019. Team needs to work hard this summer because it starts out as tough as Iíve ever seen it beginning the first weekend. Also...big thanks to those that put this together. Scheduling can be tough and this is the second year in a row theyíve gotten it released in April. As fans I know we all appreciate the quick release.

Without taking a deep dive, that is a challenging non-con schedule. The only match that feels out of place is Northern Illinois. But even NIU has a 107.6 RPI over the last 10 years. They had a bad couple of years in 2018 and 2017, but the overall trend says they won't stay bad for long. It could end up being challenging as well.

The home schedule with Michigan and Missouri brings two teams to Frericks that I'm excited to see on the schedule. I've thought Missouri would be a good opponent for a long time. I'm glad they are finally playing the Flyers. There will be plenty of opportunities for quality wins.

Without too much detail, I think Horsmon is right. I think overall, the A-10 will improve. I still think Dayton and VCU will be heavy favorites to hold onto the top 2 spots, but I do think some of the other teams will improve. SLU graduates only 4 Senior who played limited roles. I think, Horsmon may be speaking largely about SLU when he says 'our league had a lot of young players on programs that are traditionally strong.' SLU of 2018 was bad early but played strong down the stretch. They may begin to close the gap between the pack and the favorites.

The 2019 schedule is now visible on the website. I have a couple of new thoughts/questions.

- What is going on in the first weekend? Why will two SEC teams be playing in Louisville? Texas A&M and Florida can't be playing each other, right? Is there a 5th team. Will T A&M and UF only be playing two matches?

-Not only does Dayton play VCU just one time, Dayton won't play VCU until the last match of the year before post season play. We may have to wait until the 14th and last conference game before the top two teams meet. And Dayton starts the A-10 season with what might be the 2nd toughest conference match, at SLU. At SLU on Sept. 28th. Hosting VCU Nov. 17th. I hope Dayton vs. VCU in 2019 is worth the wait.

Dayton has an all time record of 73 W and 79 L against this lineup of non-con opponents (only counting Miami OH once). Most of those previous 152 matches were against Cincinnati and Miami OH. Those two opponents account for 54.6 percent of previous matches. Dayton has had the most success against Miami of Ohio with a 21 and 13 record in the Flyer's favor. Dayton and Cincinnati have been even opponents with Dayton owning a slight edge, 25 W to 24 L.

When you remove those two teams, Dayton has a record of 27 W and 42 L against the remaining teams. Dayton owns only one winning record against these remaining teams. Dayton is 2 and 1 against Missouri State. Dayton looks like they have never played Texas A&M or SMU.
