I really like this ECU deal, though I wish they were coming off one of their more normal seasons of better than average football. I too like the suggestion of Pitt. These teams we should come closer to competing with and taking a game down to the last few minutes. However, with each of these teams we'd be sacrificing a minimum of $100K vs playing a Tech, UMD, or UNC. I was a little shocked SMU signed a deal for as much cash as they paid.

Just curious, Wear Purple, did you not go to the Duke game in '08?

I joked in 2008 that the best thing about playing at Duke was being able to go to Chapel Hill and hit Franklin Street post-game. lol

Yeah, Durham is the stepchild of the Triangle.

UVA and Va Tech are still my first 2 choices by far.
I agree that Navy would be a great get too. They truly have an international following and some clout in FBS. Plus it is less than a 3 hour bus trip.
I like the games at Maryland for proximity and affinity with our alumni geography. But I like Navy more.

That must have been INCREDIBLE.

I was in Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium 3 days before 911 for a game. Who'da thunk 3 days later a large percentage of those Mids' careers would change significantly - well, all of us for that matter.

I'd love to see JMU head up to West Point to the "Banks of the Hudson" to play the USMA as well.

I have several different groups of friends from the 757 with season tix to USC. Evidently the tailgate scene is pretty good there and not too bad a drive for a lot of JMU folks.

Doing UGA would be an amazing time. Loved visiting there when my Wife was doing her grad school

It really was, Hyper...and the cherry on top was the fact that JMU actually won the game 04-cheers
