Marshall opponents’ 2013 schedules (fixed 5/24)

May 16, 2013 by Doug Smock

(Correcting Ohio … thanks to an alert reader)

These appear in opponents’ capsules we run in the summer, probably after the Greenbrier Classic. Peruse them and make any comments …

Here’s one: We list how a team did against an opponent, and I typed in a record number of “DNP” designations, or Did Not Play. Even exceeded that of the 2005 season, as I recall.
