Couple of interesting notes from Chuck McGill’s column in today’s Charleston Daily Mail. Make sure you give the whole article a read but, here are the highlights.
1) The annual Capital Classic between Marshall and WVU has found a new date, Saturday December 14th. It will be the first Capital Classic held on a Saturday. Organizers are considering starting the women’s game at 2 p.m. with the men tipping off at 7:30 p.m.
2) Speaking about basketball scheduling, Marshall will play in another NCAA exempt event this upcoming season that includes a road date against defending national champion Louisville.
3) This item did not come from McGill’s article but, Marshall’s basketball roster will grow in the coming weeks. Head coach Tom Herrion told Chuck Landon of the Huntington Herald Dispatch that the Herd is still planning to add “a guy or two” for the upcoming season.
4) Expect Marshall’s home football date against Louisville to change. With their move to the Atlantic Coast Conference the Cardinals currently have five home and seven road games scheduled for 2014, including a trip to Joan C. Edwards Stadium. Louisville would like to have an even number of home and away dates and expect Marshall to accommodate their request by pushing the Cardinals visit back to 2015 or 2016.
