      Move to JAX is part of FSU plan to go TO their fan base. Games in Orlando, Tampa, Atlanta, and now JAX. These are the cities FSU Grads move to. Plus FSU can take paycheck from these cities and make more than for home game. ATL paying them 5 million for 2017 vs Bama.

        Great point with the fan base moving & smart move on FSU part to accommodate that. Bama does the same thing with neutral site games, I assumed FSU would get more money playing in J’ville just wasn’t sure why they changed it.

      Great! I’m going to that game in 2019!!! It’ll be tough for Boise State since that will probably be the first game after Rypien graduates!

      Hope FSU doesn’t end up cancelling the return to Boise in 2020

      Appears the 2017 schedule is complete except for a small number of FBS programs still need to announce a FCS opponent.

      Florida St, Miami FL, Syracuse, TCU
      AF, UNLV, FIU, Ball St, Western Mich, NIU, Coastal Carolina

      P5 programs who have not scheduled a P5 OOC opponent for 2017:
      Miss St, Utah, Wisconsin (each has a game vs BYU)
      Arizona, WSU, Colorado
      Illinois, Kansas

      On to 2018, where New Mexico State will have a difficult time filling its home schedule.

      If you watched the 2014 Georgia Southern @ Georgia Tech game or better yet, if you attended the game, then you would know the ACC referees took the game out of the players hands with a terrible reversal of an ON THE FIELD call (requires indisputable evidence…it’s still being disputed). Georgia Southern was the better team that day and still has the more dynamic roster. Thank you Paul Johnson and the Tech AD for not being scared (UGAg) and rescheduling the Eagles…GS won’t leave it in question this go around. It would be great for the state if GS and Tech continued to schedule a game (maybe a H&H once Paulson Stadium is expanded to 30k) every other year. Athletically, as of late, the two schools are closer to peers than big brother-little brother.

      • Kevin Kelley
        August 9, 2016 at 8:24 pm

        Georgia has played Georgia Southern six times since 1992, Georgia Tech only once. I don’t think Georgia is scared of GS.

      • Hail Southern!
        August 10, 2016 at 5:09 pm

        Interesting that 5 of those 6 times were when Georgia Southern had 63 scholarships. The 6th game was a carry over from GS’s FCS days and Georgia elected to move the game from 2016 to 2015 probably because they didn’t want an additional year of FBS recruiting for GS. Georgia was gifted that win last year and every dawg fan knows it. For both parties, it is understood that Georgia no longer wants any part in scheduling GS and frankly that’s fine by me.

      • Atlanta_Mafia
        August 11, 2016 at 10:23 am

        Don’t worry Kevin Kelly, that’s just GS non-sense talk. They told GSU that they’d never beat GS – but in the just the second meeting (last year) GSU gave them their worst defeat in the history of Paulson High School County Stadium, The glory days of GS are behind them. The newsflash to GS is that they are the #4 team in the state of Georgia and they think that they are #1.

      • William Satterwhite
        August 11, 2016 at 4:33 pm

        Georgia Tech got up big in that game and then let up and allowed Georgia Southern back in, the Eagles were far from the better team that day.

      • H
        August 11, 2016 at 5:34 pm

        Georgia Southern’s coach was on his way out and focused on a million dollar salary…way to go. How’d that bowl game work out for the mighty Panthers? Let’s compare some numbers for a minute…17-53 (129th in FBS) vs. 375-200-10 (14th in FBS)…0 D1 National Championships vs. 6 D1 National Championships (most all-time)…0 D1 Conference Titles vs. 11 D1 Conference Titles. WHEW! I can certainly understand why a Panther fan (those exist?) would cling like hell to that win against Georgia Southern! Run along now, let us men get back to it.

      • Atlanta_Mafia
        August 12, 2016 at 7:11 pm

        GS has never beat UGA – GS has never beat GT – GS is 50/50 against GSU.
        So your excuse is that GS got pounded at home by GSU cause your coach was dreaming about a real job? Really? That’s all it took for the mighty Beagles to lose at home? A coach’s daydream? All that tripe that GS spews about GSU and you got pounded in just the second effing year by a five year old football team? Fact is that Richt got fired because he almost lost to GS so that should tell you about how little respect there is for the GS product. So maybe GS needs to realize that they may start to fall behind KSU or Mercer. You guys have such an incredible false sense of entitlement from all those Pee-Wee league trophies. Probably ought to go on back to FCS Pee-Wee league! How about that Capt GAyTAy?

      • Hail Southern!
        August 13, 2016 at 1:11 pm

        The Real GSU has played UGA and GT once with equal scholarships. Do you understand that having 22 less scholarships is a disadvantage? Once the playing field was made even, the Real GSU lost by a combined 10 points in their first outings with 85 scholarships. Again, I appreciate GT rescheduling the Real GSU unlike UGAg (I bet you’re a UGAg fan before a GAy St fan). Do you understand that when a head coach does not prep their team for a game that the team is unprepared? Big concepts here. Do you have any facts or just opinions? Richt was on the hot seat at the start of that season and the season before that…try to keep up. The fact that you recognize KSU and Mercer says a lot about where you view GAy St. Pee-Wee trophies…you’re talking about Division 1 National Championships. Do you understand that prior to the College Football Playoff, the FCS Playoff was the highest form of a college football playoff in existence? Oh but computers picking two teams worked out every time. The Real GSU should go back to FCS? You mean the Real GSU with the 18-7 FBS record (.720)? How about GAy St with the 7-30 FBS record (.189). This is too easy man, c’mon. (A) Why would GAy St field a football team and (B) why would ANYONE be a fan???? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL!!!

      • David
        August 9, 2016 at 10:19 pm

        Neither BYU nor USU are a Power 5. And Notre Dame and Navy aren’t in the same state.

      • Adam
        August 10, 2016 at 11:47 am

        Matt probably meant to say the BYU-Utah game. Utah is a P5, but BYU is not. The summary would read something like this:

        Utah-Brigham Young

        When: Saturday, Sept. 10, 5:30pm MT
        Where: Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City, UT
        All-Time Series Leader: Utah, 58-34-4 (62.5%)
        Last-Five: Utah, 5-0 (100%)

        Utah has dominated its little brother, BYU, over the last 13 meetings (10-3, 77%). And they will certainly do so again this fall.

      • Bill
        August 10, 2016 at 3:27 pm

      • Matt
        August 11, 2016 at 4:54 pm

        BYU fits the P5 requirement for scheduling for most if not all conferences. The SEC looks at BYU as a P5…last time I checked the SEC is the premier program in College Football.

    4. Bill
      August 10, 2016 at 3:32 pm

      good article ….but i would say Georgia Southern has a much better chance of beating Georgia Tech than many of the games you have ranked as more likely. I don’t think very many people would be surprised is Georgia Southern wins that game.

    5. KF Baxter
      August 11, 2016 at 3:25 pm

      Utah had to be invited to a conference to be considered P5. BYU did it on their own.

      • Wade
        August 12, 2016 at 7:54 am

        BYU is considered by some to be a P5 “for scheduling purposes.” But we’re not actually a P5, since we don’t belong to a P5 conference. That’s why it’s so important for us to get into the Big XII…the fate and viability of our football program rests on it. If we don’t get in and become an actual P5, our future looks no better than that of New Mexico State.

      • Buzz Waldron
        September 8, 2016 at 1:49 pm

        By that thinking, Toledo would also be considered a Power 5 Power Team, since it can beat 1/2 or more of teams from Power 5 Conferences…

      I don’t think many Ohio State fans see any MAC schools as “little brother.” The only school that would make sense to have that designation would be U of Cincinnati.

      Don’t care what anyone from the SEC says, this is how you schedule an FCS opponent. 2 Power 5 teams, 1 real away game, and a lot of happiness from viewers.

      Only the SEC refuses to schedule a real OOC schedule. Even Alabama has a joke of a 2016 schedule outside of their 1 great OOC “neutral” site game in Texas against the USC Trojans.

      • Common Sense
        November 16, 2015 at 6:06 pm

        Too bad Florida’s schedule is a joke. 1 Power 5 OOC opponent — Florida State.

        Meanwhile FSU plays 2 Power 5s and a strong AAC team on the road.

        SEC is a joke.

      • Day
        November 16, 2015 at 7:51 pm

        November 17, 2015 at 1:54 am

        Why do you think that is? I’ll give you a hint: it’s not jealousy.

        It’s because the SEC bends the rules to get overinflated records every single year. 8 conference games. Maybe 1 Power 5 team. 2 low level FBS teams (C-USA or Sunbelt) and an FCS team. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR.

        Now, if you took one of those low level FBS teams and turned it into either: 1) a conference games (making it 9 total), or 2) another Power 5 team…. then we would give you credit. However, you don’t, so we will continue to complain, scream SEC bias, and complain, until your conference addresses it.

        The fact that even Nick Saban stated that he thinks the SEC should cancel FCS games and play 9 conference games should make you SEC fans open your eyes. Saban even admitted that playing 9 conference games as opposed to 8 was much harder and would make it more difficult for some teams to advance to the CFP. Yet, the rest of your conference are cowards. So, Nicky boy schedules his team to deal with the rest of the SEC… I will only even defend Alabama as a good football team in this conference. Every other team is a joke. A JOKE. Alabama >>>>> SEC. The rest of the SEC should propose to Alabama and thank them for making that conference. Period.

      • Day
        November 17, 2015 at 11:39 am

        I know what Magic Nick said, not sure if he has enough swagger to get it done though, that’s why I don’t complain much about things I have no control of. I think calling a whole conference A JOKE or OVERRATED is a bit extreme but that’s your opinion & with that I will respect it, sad, but I will respect it.

    2. Title IX
      November 17, 2015 at 9:52 am

      Don’t look at SEC teams preseason or in season SOS. Don’t look at how many SEC teams are playing opponents with winning records in October and November. Don’t look at how the SEC pays for its women’s sports, many of which are very successful. You will not like what you find.

      • Maverick
        November 17, 2015 at 4:55 pm

        Seriously, ever single team in D-1 uses men’s bball and football to pay for women’s sports as well as most other men’s sports. Your argument is moot, you fool.

    3. schoup
      November 17, 2015 at 9:57 am

      Scheduling across all P5 conferences should be made uniform

      1)All conferences go to 9 game schedule..that’s you SEC and ACC which stupidly play a 6-1-1 format with 14 teams. That makes you play 6 teams in your conf just twice in 12 years.

      2)All conferences with a divisions play a 6-3 format or 5-4(P12).
      3)NO FCS games in the actual season. Play FCS games in the spring instead of the inter squad spring game,

      4)Every school must schedule at least 1 an actual P5 OOC. If you fail to do so you’re automatically not eligible for the playoff that year. The bottom schools annually can bail but won’t be rewarded if they happen to be better than their AD thought, thus why they don;t schedule P5’s OOC
