As teams begin to release their non-conference schedules, it’s time to see what games could help make or break the teams season. Next on the list are the Eastern Illinois Panthers.

This schedule confuses me on so many levels. 1st, please somebody explain to me the home-away with Maine. Is there a coaching connection between the schools I’m missing? Because I’m bewildered why a team in Illinois would play a home-away series with Maine.

The next item that bewilders me is the January non-conference game, which is weird enough just being in the month of January. But Houston Baptist? Why are you going to Texas between games in Edwardsville and at home?

On the plus side, there is a fair amount of challenge to this schedule, and a nice 3-game home stand with Maine, Stony Brook, and Oakland City University.
