If UConn is scheduling Patriot League teams like Lafayette for FB they might as well schedule NBE BB rival Georgetown / Patriot League FB for a homecoming game and an easy victory. Pay them to show up too. Spread the wealth with pay games for their BE FCS counterparts. 04-cheers

I mean, sure, play a game with Nova every now and again, might as well. Georgetown and Butler are non-scholarship, though, so there's no reason to play a game with them since it straight up doesn't count.

Lafayette is then too. So why play one and not the other. They are both in the Patriot League. 07-coffee3

My understanding is that teams in the Patriot other than Georgetown offer at least the minimum number of scholarships to be an FCS counter, while Georgetown gets to stick around in the Patriot as a non-scholarship program essentially because they're Georgetown.

Checked it out. Your right about Georgetown. The President refuses to go the scholarship route for football. Back in the 80's when my cousins played against each other - one for Lafayette and the other for Lehigh - they received financial grant and aids based on financial need not scholarships for football. The Patriot League has now moved to the FCS scholarship 63 player limit minus Georgetown. 07-coffee3

Not just to be a counter for FBS games, but for honesty. A lot of those players were recruited and on scholarship, just not a true "football" scholarship.

Temple-Delaware, Syracuse-Colgate, BC-Holy Cross: a lot of old rivalries were lost in the northeast. I think Rutgers had rivalries (or at least yearly games) with Lafayette, Lehigh, and an ancient one with Fordham.
We were in a conference (sort of) with Lehigh and Lafayette for 40+ years and those games were annual fixtures on our schedule.

We also played Princeton nearly every year until 1980. With the schools about 20 miles apart it could be a great rivalry and we should play them in a lot of Olympic sports. In a perfect world they woudl have been on our schedule for football this year.

The problem with UConn's former conference mates scheduling them in football is that we don't have that many OOC games to give and it will take a while for those spots to open up. UConn may have the available dates to schedule multiple Lambert schools at once but the rest of us don't.

Rutgers played Princeton in the first ever college football game and beat them Nov. 6, 1869. They played again at Princeton and lost.
Both schools have been awarded the National Championship for that year with split 1 and 1 seasons. 02-13-banana 02-13-banana 02-13-banana COGS COGS COGS 04-cheers

Did they throw a parade back then for winning the national title? And how did people attend games back then without cars? Would they ride their horse and watch via horseback?

Heard Cuse and WMU are involved in possibly helping out UConn. Cuse might open at The Rent the first week

Cuse at the Rent to open the home slate? That would be the best possible scenario for UCONN.

That'd be consistent with what's previously been reported. They've currently got five home dates scheduled with three games left to reveal, and the Courant reported that there will be seven home dates. One of the three teams they're negotiating with is reported to be an ACC team. One of the remaining opponents seems very likely to be MTSU after signing the contract that breaks up the MTSU@Mississippi buy game with the stipulation that UConn schedule a game with MTSU, but the remaining two teams are unknown. It was assumed the remaining ACC team would likely be a one-off buy game (perhaps Virginia Tech after they called off the ECU series) and the unknown team would be a G5 program coming to Hartford, but hosting MTSU, hosting Syracuse, and playing at WMU would fit the descriptions that are already out there.

Horse and carriage ... or a bus, where a bus back then was a team of horses and a wagon with bench sets along each side of the wagon.

Also back then a "sports field" would be a field where you happened to be playing a sporting event. If, unlike Field of Dreams, the sport is played after the harvest of that crop is over, that's even more convenient.

Obviously if you took a carriage to the game, stopping it where you can see the field and "parking" the horses (that is, tying them up to a tree in a neighboring park, where they can wait in comfort) might be an option.

A WMU game will need to be in October.

A WMU game will need to be in October.

Used that date because WMU has had a late November bye week the last 2 years. There are 2 open weeks in October if a game can be arranged between UConn and WMU on 10/3 or 10/17. 07-coffee3

Even like the move for us to play on Saturday. Very good scheduling wise so far.

UConn doesn't really have an excuse to play in Week 0, but if the NCAA is giving out waivers like candy, maybe they'll get one for that.
