3 pay day games in 1 season? New normal for some? - billybobby777 - 09-08-2017 05:57 PM

I see that Kent St has 3 pay day games in 2020:
@Alabama
@Arkansas
@Kentucky
Is this normal for a school in a conference to do? I know an Indy like NMSU or UMASS needs these to survive...1 money game in a year I understand. But 3? Does this mean that Kent St wouldn't make it as an FBS program if they didn't have the 5 million they'll receive for playing 3 money games?

I don't know that there is a "normal" here. I do know that some FCS schools have done this in the past. It doesn't impact them for the post-season, because they can still qualify for the playoff with all those losses. But for Kent, it seems to almost concede that there won't be a bowl game to worry about. Of course, going to a bowl doesn't put any money in the bank, so why not cash those big checks?

I wish ECU would do one every year. But 3 seems ridiculous.

Kent has no fans so they need to make money some way.

I was actually shocked to see a couple Kent State fans at Clemson Saturday.

Of course they probably moved to SC a decade ago but it was still surprising.

They must be trying to audition for the SEC.

They could be competitive in the East

The East is doing some better. Cocky has a QB. Missouri can score but has no D. Kentucky makes you earn it these days. Vandy actually has some game. And Georgia's D is quality. The offense has yet to truly prove itself. It's only Florida that's mired in the Swamp.

It means the State of Ohio is looking very seriously at institutional transfers of money.
