Guessing they’ll return the favor by coming here next season.

Reading some social media, App State and Wake fans are upset that their game against each other scheduled to be played this year will not happen, and that ODU is Wake's non-conference game. The App State coach is practically apoplectic about it.

I can understand that. Kind of how I feel about UVA.

Yup. From App's perspective, that cannot feel good at all.

UVA feels more confident playing VMI over us, most likely because we handed VT that L.

Wake feels more confident playing ODU than playing App St and getting handed that L.

Hopefully we shock their asses and still hand them that L.

We are closer to Wake than App St and easier drive. That was one of the determining factors.

Norfolk is 4 to 5 hours from Winston-Salem, depending on traffic. Boone is 90 minutes straight down U.S. 421. Maybe if the game was in January and Boone was snowed in that'd be true.

It really boils down to ODU was an easy series to figure out since we can just swap the host order. This game for App and Wake was to be the second in a home-and-home, so there was no obvious answer.

And I’m not sure why App is upset. They ended up extending the series with Wake because of this. Hard to say that happens without the cancellation.

Im confused. App is another 90 minutes further than Wake.

I think DaBig misunderstood which school had the decision to make. He is talking as if ODU got to pick between games against Wake or App, when it was Wake’s call.

Having a few friends here in central NC who are ASU alums and fans, it's that respect thing. Feeling disrespected plus reasonable belief that ACC teams are now afraid of ASU since they beat UNC last year in Chapel Hill.

Looks like we may actually play this year. Now we need to scrounge up 3 more games. At least 1 should be FCS. Who can we book? Campbell? Charleston So? Citadel? Does ECU have any dates available? That’d be a no brainer. Temple? App? Ga St? Coastal? LU?

Would be shocked if any FCS teams are playing in the fall with the postseason postponed at minimum. With no or few fans onsite, I don’t really see the point of a robust OOC schedule. I suspect this is still headed to a wholesale postponement but if it isn’t, I don’t see the financial logic of a full schedule at this point.

If they have the bowls, Getting to 6 wins would be important.
