As a New Jersey resident, I find it a sad (but extremely
accurate) commentary that the FBSCHEDULES photo of Rutgers bursting out onto the field at High Point Solutions Stadium…….shows mostly empty seats in the background. Will Rutgers announce a crowd for the 2023 Ohio game which is 20-25% larger than the actual number of bodies in seats, as they did at the 2011 Ohio game in Piscataway, which I attended?

The ATLANTIC should be to the right of the image of Florida. Florida – Atlantic, both symbolically and geographically. Their helmet looks like they should be the Panhandles.
unless I am missing something I only count 14 games
i got 16
That’s a lot of scheduling in one day, way to go Bobcats!!!!
Ohio does realize they are in the MAC and not the MEAC, right? That’s why we call them Bobblecats.
Looks like a good Colonial Athletic schedule there!
Schedule: USF, UCF, North Texas, Houston
Ohio Director of Athletics Jim Schaus – should work with Ohio State Buckeyes and have OSU play Tulsa at the (old) Cotton Bowl in Texas – freeing up The Shoe for the Ohio U vs Kansas game in 2016…There are more Bobcat fans living in Columbus that in Athens… work with Kroger to Fill the Shoe… take the season ticket holder spots and place them in the Shoe then have an extra ticket sales for alumni after season tickets are sold… see how many get sold then 2-4 months before to try and fill C Deck with $10 dollar sales in Kroger and $5 seats win 1 month remaining at local Columbus High Schools…
Should hire John Grass from JSU
That sounds great – OU in The SHOE.. only time filled with Green… Paint the end zones Green – OHIO… 100,000 for the Bobcats…
No…Ohio U should hire Tim Beck… recruiting ties to Florida and Texas…
550k guarantee? That seems super low.
because Ohio gets an home/home basketball series with Purdue with only taking $500,000 for the away football game.
Purdue as a bottom 1/2 B10 team lately has a surprising 2017 schedule. They play Mizzou and Louisville..2P5’sOOC. They will likely only be favored in the Ohio OOC game.
With the B1G going to 9 games plus a P5 OOC game, and some schools scheduling 2 and even 3 P5 in future years, that doesn’t leave any more spots for MAC schools, maybe fewer. The B1G was playing about 6 FCS games a year, but going to 9 B1G games means 14 fewer OOC games. There is also an increase of 10 P5 games per year. By my count that means about 18 fewer slots for G5 schools than the B1G plays now.
I think the B1G will let 2016 slide on FCS schools, but I expect the 2017 onward games will get cancelled (below)
Maryland 2017 Towson
Rutgers 2017 Morgan State
Illinois 2018 Western Illinois
Iowa 2018 Northern Iowa
Minnesota 2019 South Dakota State
Maryland 2020 Towson
UAB has a chance to schedule some revenue games here (I keep wondering when they are going to start setting up some games)
The SEC and ACC consider BYU a P5 team and from the looks of scheduling the Pac 12 does too.
Maybe we all should
The B1G, SEC, and ACC have all said they count BYU games as P5. The Pac-12 and Big XII do not have an OOC P5 requirement wince they have 9 games, although most of the schools schedule one or two anyway. IN general there are fewer games to be had for the G5 against the P5 except BYU
Isn’t UMASS a MAC team for football? If so, that’d only give OU 2 games if your info is correct….
UMass is leaving the MAC and will be an FBS Independent beginning next season.
The MAC finally figured out not to have teams travel to UMass on a short week. Of course, this is UMass’s last year in the MAC, so it’s too little too late.
can you just post who bowling green will play in mac titlle game on dec.4th????????
Four teams are still in it, won’t be known until after they play: Northern Illinois, Toledo, Central Michigan, and Western Michigan.
