Unless we can get the NCAA to qualify that game as an exhibition like the other D3 teams. Replace them with real D1 teams, GMU, GW, or Davidson. Heck I'd take UNCW or Liberty over the pukes - or even Radford. At lease Radford tries to field a D1 basketball team. JMpoo actually had a stellar season for them, 10 wins. That means that new convo center is priced out at nearly $9million per annual win.
Like it or not, the Ted fills up quite a bit for JMU. Familiar and they have good fan support. When getting rid of low level opponents I'd rather get rid of the ones that don't move the needle at all.

So what.

Beating a +250 hurts more than a 100 or so extra tickets sold. JMU does not bring a lot of extra ticket sales. A lot more than you realized are from season ticket holders.

let's say that they bring in 300 more seats sold. Big deal, that is less than $6,000 in revenue. Maybe 1.5-2X that in concessions. Not worth the RPI hit.

I'm not sure you got entirely what I was saying. I'm saying that we need to drop our lower-tier schedule, but JMU should not be one of them. I'd argue holding onto both JMU and W&M because of the history alone. Fans show up for those games too, which is a better atmosphere in general and more fun to go to. Nobody cares about the extra $6k or whatever it is.

I agree, there is plenty of room to build a strong schedule and still keep JMU, W&M, VCU, and Richmond. Add the preseason tournament and that gives us 5 games to play with. Right now they are St. Joe's and perhaps Bowling Green, Towson, and Fairfield, but I don't know what those deals were. I assume Howard, UMES, Norfolk State or Mt St Mary's will be there as well. Hopefully only 1 of them next year.
