Good to know. I think curt said that. Maybe we shouldn't tell him...

I'm praying MRDs travel to NSU next year. Would make that game SO MUCH fun with the Legion already there. Two best bands in VA for their respective styles. Just wondering if it will be 9/8 or 9/15...

Regarding my post above, it looks like I made it five conference games rather than four. Therefore, I believe our home schedule will consist of:

Cupcake OOC
W&M
Elon
Towson
Albany or SBU

There is a possibility of JB pleading to NSU to allow our return trip be played in 2019, but I wouldn't count on it.

How late can we back out? Does NSU want the tix revenue in exchange for getting beat 60-14 at home next year that bad? I feel like we recently (within the last threes) backed out of an OOC away game. Perhaps someone can refresh my memory.

I had conversation with EW about this very subject. He said all contracts come with a very heavy penalty that a team must pay should they need out. The subject came up because we were talking about Liberty and dropping a game with them in order to play SMU. He told me there is a gentleman's agreement that a team can get out of paying that penalty by finding a suitable opponent to replace the game with.

I think we did this for St. Francis a few years ago. It was stated that we had a 3 for 1 deal with St. Francis, but we got out of going there by finding them a suitable opponent. I don't know what ever came of our deal with Liberty, whether we have paid them off, whether we helped find them a suitable opponent, but I thought we got them to agree to a future date being in 2019. However, there has been no mention by LU or by us to ever play them again.

I know that our second game with UNC they wanted to change the date so they could play Louisville (this was prior to Louisville being in the ACC), but we couldn't make another date work and the contract stated they would have to pay us $600K if they wanted out. Needless to say, the game was played as scheduled. The Louisville newspaper had already reported that they had a signed deal with UNC, but their game never happened.

As far as CAA you forgot about UD.

I think it will be
HOME:
-W&M
-Elon
-UD
-Albany or SBU

AWAY:
-RU
-VU
-TU
-Albany or SBU

MISS (Same as 2014-2015)
-Maine
-UNH
-URI
