Their website lists them as being 0-1. Coast Guard game was an exhibition.

I believe CCSU is ranked in the 300's. Never understood why we wouldn't schedule Marist which is a similar level opponent instead. I think the last time we played Marist was when I was a student there. I still remember watching the game rooting for Marist and came away very impressed that we almost beat a major team. Kinda funny being on the other side now.

We don't schedule Marist because then who would you root for?

All seriousness scheduling is said to be the hardest thing for a coach. Its a two way street. Maybe SJU wanted Marist but Marist wanted an absurd amount of money. Or demanded a game in their building in the future. Too many times we hear oh why not schedule this team. And always remember there are 2 sides to every story for those instances when you hear Team X has wanted to play Team Y for years but they wont.

Mullin and CCSU coach Donyell Marshall were Warriors teammates. That was the thought behind scheduling them two years ago, but Marshall was suspended for that game (by the school, over a non-NCAA issue, IIRC). Anderson probably thought it would be easier to just keep the game. One less thing he'd have to worry about in his first year on the job.

SJU leads the all time series, 2-0.

The first meeting,back in 1990, saw us score a school record (still standing) 135 points. With the new style, and CCSU possibly being the worst team we will play all season, it's not completely out of the realm (though highly unlikely), that we could beat this number tomorrow.
