RPI breakdown of George Mason's non-conference opponents

George Mason officially released their non-conference schedule for the 2012-2013 season. Almost all of which we knew about already, except for Boston University, which appears to have been the last opponent added. It looks as though last season's Bracketbuster opponent, Lamar, won't be on the schedule this season for the return game. Maybe it's because they are choosing to play it during the 2013-2014 season or maybe because the CAA isn't participating in the event anymore, so there won't be a return game.

This is one the program's most impressive non-conference slate in years. It's a good mix of BCS programs, winnable games, and other competitive mid-majors. Let's also not forget that a win against Mercer in the Paradise Jam could lead to New Mexico and other good RPI opponents. Speaking of the Paradise Jam tournament, SI.com's Andy Glockner seems to like George Mason's chances.

Below is a breakdown of the final RPI for each opponent over the last three seasons:

I don't think the CAA choosing not to participate in Bracketbusters has anything to do with Lamar not being on the schedule this season. We are returning a Bracketbuster game this season already with UNI on the schedule. Normally Bracketbuster return games are 2 years after the initial matchup.

I'm happy to see the non-conference schedule finally be announced. I can't wait to see the final schedule come out with conference matchups and TV coverage.

 Most years, Mason returned the BracketBuster game the very next year.

The N. Iowa return game this year is from Bracketbusters 2 years ago

Yes - in years past BB games against Wichita State, Kent State, Ohio, and Creighton were returned the following year. Then the rule changed, so games against C of C, UNI, and now Ball State are returned 2 years after the initial matchup.
