This will be my 8th year as a season ticket holder and 12th since my freshman year. I can't remember a tougher stretch for fans than our opening 5 weekends (Penn State + UNCC). If anyone makes all 5 in a row, you're in a special tier of App State fandom.
I would actually consider it harder to miss any of them. Can't wait!

Tonight is the moment of truth: when we find out how many Panthers home games share a weekend with App home games.
‪Two weekends of App State/Carolina Panthers double home games: Sept 22-23 (Gardner Webb & Cincinnati) and Nov 24-25 (Troy & Seattle). ‬

Sarcasm? I'm going to have to disagree. In 2014 & 2015, 3 of our first 5 games were on the road outside of North Carolina. In 2016, we had a game in Akron, Ohio in the first five games. 2017, we played in San Marco's, Texas in the first five games. 3 games in Boone, 1 in Charlotte, and a money game at Penn State is in my opinion by far the most fan friendly schedule we have had since moving to the Sun Belt. Yes 3 home games in a row isn't ideal but are you saying it would be easier if one of those games was not located in North Carolina. Literally four of the first five are in North Carolina and the other is an appealing travel game.

Yes, because then one of the *other* games would be. We have 6 home games every year folks. Other than keeping games out of really cold weather season (which this schedule doesn't even do thanks to back to back in November), I see no advantage to front-loading everything in September.

I think the GW attendance will be the only thing that suffers. It's the perfect game to miss if three straight home games is too much for your family because it's the middle game...and it's GW for god's sake.

Yep. And USM is the first home game and USA is Homecoming. Since G-W is Heroes Day, I think we'll see a lot of military discounted tixs put out.

No sarcasm at all. A lot of fans like to travel to the P5 money game, all the home games, and maybe one or two closer road games (Georgia State is a good example). Akron, San Marcos, Lafayette, Jonesboro aren't close enough to draw a large number of App State fans to travel. So including the money game that most of us want to attend, you have five consecutive weekends of App State football. I can't remember a stretch of five games like that. Even if you can't make Penn State, four (including UNCC) weekends in a row is really difficult to swing.

When we were in the SoCon every other year we played the SC trio of Furman, Wofford, and Citadel, it was before kids, but I remember going to 9 of the 11 games many years.

Please do not view this as an endorsement of those schedules, while I enjoyed those trips, but I wouldn't trade the last three years' schedules and future ones for anything I've experienced as an App fan.

I feel the exact same way. I loved those Citadel games and the Charleston trips that came with them...but wouldn't want to go back to that schedule at all.

Gonzo and I made it to every game in 2011, it was a great year for it. Samford, Southern and 'Nooga were all home so I think the Citadel was out longest drive. Didn't play the P5 game that year, of course ;)
