Yes, it is unusual to open up against a conference opponent. Yes, you should have more in January than you have in November. Wasn't Virginia playing under the same circumstances?
Also, this doesn't feel like a money grab to me. Almost an anti money grab. People aren't thinking about basketball just yet. They're focused on football. This was a marquee match--up and the average college hoops fan isn't paying attention yet. Maybe two conference games in November will expand long term interest when there are fewer competing marquee games, but did anyone even know there was a "big" game going on last night?
Had BO-HIME's team won, or even played them closely, he'd be crowing how it was so great to have an early season challenge against the best. (As opposed to the usual at home cream puff schedule he prefers before league games).
Bet he threw a chair in the locker room at halftime!

You are including grad students, seminary and online undergrad and online undergrads with seminary is about 1800 but 950 or so are traditional full time undergrads
Just wanted to clarify this. A Bucknell grad, who is also a poster on the Bucknell board, is a Mount St. Mary's administrator closely tied to their admissions process. According to him, and I am sure his information is accurate, MSM has 1732 currently enrolled traditional undergraduate students. Of this number, 1706 are full-time and none are in online programs. Their enrollment is expected to hit 1800 next August, as a larger incoming class will replace a small graduating class.

Nate Pine may have made a mistake giving Dave Pilipovich a three year extension as head coach at Air Force. In seven seasons (the current one is his eighth), he’s never had an above .509 record in the MWC.
Tonight, Air Force lost to one of the worst programs in the country, Idaho State.
