2011 Tribe Football Schedule!

Another Looming Upset?

Last week William and Mary released the schedule for the 2011 football season. Here it is. Note that, while the schedule includes dates, all times are "to be announced." All games will take place on Saturday; games in bold will take place at Zable Stadium in Williamsburg. Games marked with an asterisk are CAA conference games. (Note that Old Dominion joins the CAA in football in 2011.) The Tribe also recently announced its 2011 incoming recruiting class, including a tailback transferring from the Naval Academy. Go here for the story, which includes video highlights of each new recruit.

The Tribe will open at the University of Virginia on Saturday, September 3. Let's hope for a repeat of the Tribe's 2009 26-14 upset of the Cavaliers, previously reported on this blog here and here and memorialized in the photo posted above and taken by your humble blogger, who attended the game. (For a superb highlight video, apparently put together by someone affiliated with the University of Virginia, go here. Early portions of the video focus on early successes by Virginia, but the tide turns as the video unfolds. Go here for a shorter video put together by William and Mary.)
