Fall 21 Schedule

Two seasons ago, we hosted Michigan and Missouri. I think both of those teams could be on our schedule this fall as away games. That could be 2 of our 4 pre-conference weekends. We traveled to Louisville two years ago, and I think we played the exhibition at Louisville this spring to “save” the second match in that contract for this fall. I would be very surprised if Louisville is not a home match this fall. Sweet 16 team that also took Washington to 5 sets.

I think we have a good shot at maybe a Florida match. We played them at Louisville 2 years ago. Pushed them to 5 sets. We might get invited to play at FL, but if we travel to MO and MI, it could also be a home match?

We might look at Stanford. They had a bad season. Not sure what happened. They did not make the NCAAs and I think they owned the longest consecutive NCAAs before that - they were at least one of the top 3. Not now. Their coach is the former ILL coach and we played them a lot when Hamby was at ILL. So he knows our program plus, their strength coach is a former UD football player married to a former UD volleyball player. We got connections and Stanford needs tough matches to get ready for the PAC12. They might even travel to UD. They played at SLU the year SLU opened their new arena. I would think UD-FL-Stanford-WKY or some BIG team, would be a very attractive weekend for all invited. Frericks would be so loud.

Purdue-Penn State-Illinois-Indiana-Iowa-tOSU: I could see us scheduling two Big 10 teams this year if possible. Some of these teams would fall into a good first weekend option. Some of them fall into a we need as tough a match as we can find option. I don’t think we would schedule Wisconsin.

Marquette-Creighton: possible. They are always 1-2 in the Big East.

WKY: they have been a good NCAA team the last two years. Sweet 16 last year. I don’t know their roster - meaning they might be losing a big percentage of their talent. But possible good regional match.

KY: we’ve had contracts with them in the past and have a good working relationship between the two programs. They are in the Final 4 and the 2nd seed this year.

Pittsburgh: we did a contract with them 2/3 years ago. We’ve played them in the NCAAs several times, and to be honest, helped their program become elite. I think they are always a possibility because both programs need tough pre-conference matches.

Wright State: gotta think they will play at Frericks this year. Happy to have them. Their coach has done a great job building a great program. Their assistant coach was a volunteer coach at Dayton a couple years ago under Horsmon.

The good news is I don’t think it will take long to fill out our dance card. Dayton will be a highly sought after match. Before COVID, we usually had the schedule sometime May/June. Hopefully we will know soon.

WKY actually made the Sweet 16 this year and they finished 23-1 with the Sweet 16 match being their only loss. They beat two ranked teams this season. They were very good last year too. They have 5 seniors and of course some of those could return. Their roster is very balanced, so they should be good again next year. It’s possible we would have scheduled them this year if it hadn’t been for Covid. Hopefully we can get it done for this fall. Their coach Travis Hudson is a good coach. Bigger programs probably have him on their short list. I’d be very happy if we get them under contract for a home-home contract for 10 years if there are outs for both sides if coaches leave. (And Horsmon isn’t leaving to coach anywhere else.)

Dayton's performance in the tournament will help them get into almost any non-conference weekend mini-tournament they want. Home matches are big, so hopefully Horsmon and crew can schedule some big time matches in Frericks.

The goal in the fall 2021 season (you need to be specific this year), will be to get ranked/increase rank/earn a top 16 seed. Its very clear that this team is capable of matching up against any other program. When the tournament comes around, UD will want get a favorable match up. They most likely did not get the 2nd round match they deserved this year.

Gonna add Notre Dame to potential fall opponents. Their program has been solid the last year or two. Nd I looked up Horsmonís AVCA poll votes and he had them in the Top 25.

Gonna move KY higher up the ladder. The National Champs are close and we have played them in the past. Plus I just read a tweet by Associate Coach DErrico that her ďbest friendĒ is on KYís staff as an athletic trainer. Would love to see them on our schedule.

Based on final poll...we have a good base of potential teams for the fall schedule:

#1 KY
#5 FL
#7 Purdue
#8 Pitt
#10 tOSU
#11 Louisville
#12 Penn St
#16 WKY
#24 Norte Dame
#25 Missouri
RV Wright St

Plus Michigan, who will be in the tournament next year.

GA Southern just released their Fall 21 schedule. First DI program Iíve seen. The good news is they have four weekend tournaments before conference play starts. Thatís what life was like before COVID. We should have an awesome schedule even if we have to go with 3 pre-conference weekends...but Iím hoping itís four.

I looked back a couple years and noticed TN came to UD in 2018. We might have a backend of a contract with them to complete. They have a new coach since we last played. I havenít watched them at all, but I think sheís doing a good job.

Well itís going to be June before we get a schedule. The silver lining is it would be worth the wait.

We have a hit. Xís schedule is out and they travel to Dayton to play UD on Tues Oct 12.

Only about 28 matches to go to fill our dance card.

St Louis will play S. ILL, N CO, North Dakota and Bradley... so far. Nothing to get too exited about.

Ok...I still really have nothing...but...

Wright State is playing in a tournament at Marquette with UNI and UTSA. That’s a strong field that will help that program and their RPI. Plus, Marquette also plays both Wisc and KY next year, which will also help Marquette’s RPI and WSU’s RPI at the opponents’ opponents level.

And I expect we will play WSU again this season, so it helps us if that happens.

That’s all I’ve got...basically nothing. We’re about 75 days out from the season opener. We have to be getting close to seeing our schedule.

In the above possible teams on our schedule this fall...we can cross off Indiana and Marquette. Their schedules are out in full and no UD. The Big10 in-conference schedules are out but most teams still completing their OOC.

We have X at home and Iím fairly confident we will have MI on the road, Wright State at home and Louisville at home. Also a probability MO on the road. Everything else is a mystery.

Big-big-big hit

I almost put this under its own thread. It’s as big as you can get. National Champions Kentucky will open Dayton’s Fall 2021 schedule. The Dayton Invitational will be the first weekend, August 27-28. Kentucky is booked at Fredrick. Nothing like starting at the top. I love it! No news on who else will be joining them - probably 2 more teams. I doubt it will be Louisville because Kentucky is playing them in September. Maybe a BIG10 team????

So we have Kentucky and Xavier booked.

This is a pleasant surprise...George Mason is flying out to Irvine, CA to play UC Irvine, Boise St and So. Utah. That’s a good job by GMason.
