AState preparing to file Lawsuit against Miami
We gave them a cheap home game in exchange for a return game. We did our part. They chose to cancel due to fears about return travel, we offered free accomodations, they refused. Thats fine, just pay the buyout or reschedule. They are balking at open dates because of not wanting 2 OOC away games. Ok, so just pay the buyout. No.

When I first read the thread title, I thought it might be a wrongful death lawsuit due to the heart attack of the WR on the fake punt play a few years ago.

He didn't die from the heart attack, he was murdered by the Miami defender after he got up.

Sue the hell out of them. They wimped out because they didn't want to play the game and found a way out. If I was an ASU fan, I'd obviously rather have the game which would create even more buzz now. Still the payout seems more likely and, I believe, legally justified.

I'd be surprised if Miami doesn't end up paying all court costs and legal fees in the likely event they lose the case.

Highlights:



5. Miami has offered to play after 20205. AState has refused because it would stretch the original contract over a decade (Our original trip to Miami was in 2014)

I am not a math teacher but 20205-2014 seems a bit more than a decade.

Also if all that has been stated is factual this seems pretty open and shut. I hope that is the case for ArkSt.

Story time.

When App hosted Miami in 2016, the Canes were really paranoid about hotels. Everyone who plays at App State stays at the same hotel, with the exception of NMSU who took a cheaper, but further away, option in Hickory. That hotel has its own catering, enough rooms, meeting space and is basically locked down for the team. Never had an issue . No fire alarms at 3 a.m. or anything like that. When Wake came up in 2017, there was a sign out front saying "Welcome Wake Forest Football!" Nothing happened. It was well know some stAte assistant coaches went out drinking on a Wednesday night in 2015 before the Thursday night game. Nothing happened. Worst thing to happen to a visiting team at that hotel was that some App State co-eds swiped right on several GaSo FB players Tinder accounts in 2015 to talk trash to them.

For Da U, they were so paranoid, they told the media they were staying in Hickory. Didn't say where, though. In reality, they stayed at the same hotel that every other team does, but they didn't allow the welcoming sign or any hints they were going to be there. And guess what? Nothing happened.

So yeah, not surprising they try to take the side door out of the contract.

LOL.

I gotta give kudos to that.

They almost certainly will have to pay. AState has a pretty good case and Miami has clearly not acted in good faith. Thats even more obvious after one see's how accomodating AState has been. This gets settled. Miami wants nothing to do with a court case. 04-cheers
