Poll - Who Would You Like To See Added AS The Fourth OOC Team Next Year?
As of now, we only have three OOC teams scheduled for next year: Wake Forest, North Carolina and Virginia. A quick look revealed that the following Virginia teams still have an opening for an OOC game on their schedules:

1. Hampton
2. William and Mary
3. James Madison
4. Richmond
5. Norfolk State

Of those five, who would you like to see be added to round out the OOC schedule next year?

P.S. I tried to make a poll, but could not figure it out. If someone would like to make it a poll, feel free.

P.P.S. If anyone would like to explain the poll procedure to me, I'm listening.

Cheers!

We have 3 P5s next year. I say play the easiest one and get at least one guaranteed win. I don't know who makes the schedules, but they evidently don't want us to go to a bowl. I like playing P5s, but 1 per season is good. The risk of injury is too high, and the chance of victory too low. So I guess thats would likely be Hampton,

RE: Poll - Who Would You Like To See Added AS The Fourth OOC Team Next Year?
I'm still advocating calling UCONN and arranging a H&H with them in exchange for a MMB and/or WBB series. They will be desperate for home FBS games next year and we already have 6 home games scheduled. We definitely need a winnable 4th OOC game next year so FCS makes sense but UCONN is not very good.

If they won't agree to the BB series then I have no interest in playing them in FB really. So in that case take the 7th home game and I'll go with Hampton. We can pay NSU and Hampton considerably less than other schools due to proximity and it brings local interest. We paid $190K to NSU this year. WVU paid JMU $550K. I don't think we'll be playing VA CAA schools for that reason (and I like my cupcakes easy to swallow) but if we did I think W&M would be the first look.

In order of how fun and interesting it would be:

1. JMU
2. W&M
-----
3,4,5. the rest

But scheduling philosophy 101 for a struggling G5 as ourselves, we need the easiest possible FCS team. So whichever of Hampton, RIchmond, and NSU sucks the most, take them. If a tie, keep bringing in NSU because they attend the games and their band is awesome.

To answer your poll question - When you start a new thread you have the subject, then body, then signature, then subscription, THEN poll. You click on the box for "I want to post a poll" and then below that it asks for a number of options. For this one you'd have 5. Then when you post it takes you to your poll, where you edit each line, then you hit post again.

Agreed, but you have to wonder how many schools are trying this too.

I'd do away football for home basketball. I doubt they would do that though.

RE: Poll - Who Would You Like To See Added AS The Fourth OOC Team Next Year?
I agree with trying to work something out with UConn but they aren’t going to have the basketball inventory to add us to the schedule. They’ll have 20 Big East games, a prominent exempt tournament, at least one and maybe multiple made-for-TV games, at least one game in the Gavitt Games and/or Big East/Big 12 Challenge, and their buy games. The whole point of moving to the BE was to not let a poor football program determine the fate of their historically powerful basketball. I doubt they’ll give up a home date or neutral-site ESPN/FS1 game for a trip to a mid major in order to facilitate their football program’s scrambling for games next year.

That said, ODU has leverage for next season and while I’m not a fan of buy games against programs that shouldn’t have that position over us (Liberty), ODU almost can name their price with UConn trying to MacGuyver their way to a compliant 2020 schedule

Also, JMU, Richmond and W&M already have an FBS opponent for 2020 so I don’t know how anxious they’d be to add a second one. NSU and Hampton have played multiple FBS teams before.

There are JMU fans that would be in favor of a second fbs game and ODU makes sense.

It won't happen.

It won't happen but if I had my choice I'd pick the Tribe. Local and usually bring a good contingent of fans. Fun to talk and tailgate with too. NSU would be a close second for the same reasons.

With the current state of our program, I would have to go with NSU or HU because having 3 P5 and a strong JMU or W&M taken a shot at us could quickly spiral us down next year.

Schedule within our means. Be no worse than 3-1 when league play starts.

2-2 at the worst. An FCS win and at least one FBS win should be scheduled along with a P5 and a evenly matched G5. Something like NSU, ECU, VT, Miami Oh.

Considering at the moment, we are one of the worst teams in one of the worst conferences, cupcake G5 games are hard to come by.

Without looking I’d say there’s a limited number of FBS schools with openings and among those fewer that already have 6 home games where it’s no big deal to sign a road game. I don’t know the dynamics really but it’s an idea. Cyniclone broke down the limitations on their BB OOC schedule last time I mentioned it. But like I said, no basketball, no football.

Save money. Have battle of the bands. Maybe actually sell out a game for real. Schedule Norfolk State.

Thanks! After learning how to post a poll, I reposted and then tried to delete the original thread, but the system would not let me delete it. smh.

I'm finding this interesting. While most folks who took the time to post favor NSU in order to make a win more likely, the clear favorite of those who voted is William & Mary with 46.15% of the votes. Interestingly, William & Mary was also my pick. Would love to see that game.

I wouldn't mind seeing WM, HU & NSU alternate one each year. They are the three area schools.
