Great schedule...planning to go to Penn State and UNCC plus all home games, so this means 5 straight back-to-back Saturdays of games! Hope my voice and liver can hang...

I like the Troy game being on the Thanksgiving weekend (rivalry weekend). I see them as our biggest threat in the East and would like to see this develop into a big rivalry worthy of recognition. I know this is usually a date that has low attendance, but if it turns out to be for the eastern title and a shot at the conference championship game than I expect the Rock will be packed.
I can see us getting 20-22k for a championship-determinative Troy game on Thanksgiving weekend, but with the best noise and atmosphere of the season.

Part of that may depend on whether students will have to buy tickets to that game or not. When we had FCS playoffs, the student population went down by a good amount.


That's what I do. I gripe and I know things.

The Troy game is a regular season game so all students will get in for free. Now, if we host the SBC Championship on 12/1 the student ticket situation may be in question. I hope we'd find a way to let them all in at no additional costs.

Student tickets for FCS Playoffs were $5 when I was a student, 2005-08. They were free later on.

It wouldn't be a good time to nickel and dime students IMO.

I do wonder how ticketing would be handled for a home championship game. Would it be single-game prices ($40) for everyone or discounted for season-ticket holders?

Hope we get to find out.

Students should be free - subsidized by alums and fans paying $50/seat.

I know that a Tuesday tilt at Arky St seems like a logistical nightmare, but a Tues out/Wed back flight can be had for around $200.

If we must play on a Tuesday night I don't mind it being @ Arkansas State. A Tuesday night should greatly diminish any home field advantage they would have. Would expect a sparse crowd for that one.

Not sure about playing GS on a short week with a new DC. Rest of the schedule is golden. Hope we have enough students come in for Thanksgiving. Plan on being at all 6 home games plus UNCC if I can get tickets.

It might be that the conference is being strategic about developing "rivals".

3 teams with 0 weekday games in conference. Clearly geared to ratings and not fairness. I feel opponent bye weeks and short weeks are fair to favorable for the Apps. GS on long road trip and 5 days for the battle in the boro. No team with more than 2 conference weekday games.

There will be a cat 6 hurricane that hits new orleans and is somehow still a cat 2 when over Jonesboro. They will cancel the game and still try to sue us.

We have a home game the week before. Southern has a cross country flight on a short week.

Almost a month without a home game kind of sucks, but ending the season with three home games will be great.

Love that we don't have any home weeknight games but, the 3 home games in a row will take it's toll on many. Also, the Nov 24th game is the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, which has historically been a low-attended game, but it's awesome that it'll be against Troy and possibly determine who plays in the championship game so that should help attendance. Overall I like the schedule although I have travel conflicts with the Louisiana game which is a bummer...how close are we to the season starting countdown!! I'm ready!!
Three straight HOME games right after a de facto home game in Harrisburg will be tough. I imagine that the South Alabama game will be the one that suffers, unless the administration makes it the Homecoming game.

Per FBSschedules, USA is the home coming game. I would expect GW to suffer the most. Granted we all know you don't get 3 perfect weather weekends in a row in Boone so that is a factor as well.

It is good to have 4 weekend home games before October 20th. Also good to have Troy when weather could be a factor.

Smart move by the administration for designation USA for Homecoming. I agree that GW may be the one that suffers, but being somewhat local, hopefully they bring about a thousand fans. If they have that many.
