I'm not a big fan of the Dukes playing home and aways with low majors as I don't see any advantage other than saving the money it would take to buy a game in Pittsburgh. While they handled UMass-Lowell on the road last year and took care of business in a festive atmosphere against Abilene Christian in showcase games for those programs, they took thirty - eight minutes to finally control the game NJIT in Newark last season. It simply doesn't make a lot of sense to put yourself into that position. Of course, the road wasn't the only thing they dealt with last year.
I had a conversation about the optimal lineup for the Dukes yesterday on twitter and I was planning on writing something about whether or not who starts matters for anything when I had a little free time. That time is now, and thankfully, it coincides with a recent topic of conversation. Enjoy some rare original content.
