I expect a good crowd for this game. It'll should be exciting with some good energy.

I hope we can take UAB off the schedule and start a in state rivalry with you guys instead. The UAB game just does not have the spark to be considered a rivalry.

End the season with this game with the conference on the line and the rivalry will be born.

I would enjoy this idea.

It just feels so lonely ending the year playing someone like ASU (they beat us big time lmao) but it's so unrivalish to have games like that last. I want to play the same team at the end of every season

UAb has tried their best to not play you guys, I think you guys had to fight to get them to agree to the series you currently have going. Our game definitely needs to be played on rivalry week. Let's get it started right. We are instate, conference rivals, this game will get some attention from both fanbases.

UAB was in the driver seat at that time because we were new to FBS and they didn't have to fly across two states to get to every game. Not playing Troy will hurt them big time because they have absolutely no hint of a rival in the alliance.

I don't like the idea of a nine game conference schedule and having to play UAB every year we get two free games a year.

Drop 'em. You don't need them anymore. Besides, you would rather have a rivalry with a team that hasn't done anything instead of a team that has failed at everything.

Did that come out right??? 01-wingedeagle

That would force the bigger schools to do more away games and may result in better non conference games throughout college football because some schools will not want to travel to some smaller schools. But should result in bringing in some of the bigger schools.

That would never happen. The NCAA can't tell 100,000 crowds at Michigan or Tennessee or schools like that to give up the home attendance and schedule a game at 30,000 seat stAte or UL. If you couldn't require them to you couldn't Tulane or Memphis.

RE: Why the Belt Needs to Sign a Mid-Week TV Deal with ESPN
The only way I'd be in favor is if this is strictly a Thursday night, only on ESPN (not the deuce) deal. Those stupid interactive Tuesday games on ESPN2 were awful. Like Troy @ FIU last year, and Troy @ Middle Tennessee the year before. And various other SBC games that have been featured. Sure, I love being able to tune in and watch our SBC brethren play on national TV, but the way the Big East built up their brand before going all kamikaze on themselves when schools started jumping ship was that they were the main attraction on Thursday nights. I think they even had some Friday night games last year as well. But they were on the main channel on Thursdays for years. I don't think many of us would have a problem with each school having 1 Thursday night game a year. It is the Tuesday nights that are awful.

What was so awful about Troy vs FIU last year besides Troy? The FIU fans didn't get up for it because we had a losing record but the game itself wasn't that bad. I remember watching until until the last second.
