RE: Football 2020 Schedule
First, why are we so sure it's late November?
Second, why does it matter when it is?
Everyone plays a FCS game. It's our only buy game and it's not going away. Complain about the away game at UTSA if you want, but the UTM game is a non-factor.

Link in the OP has it in November.

But I'm with you, it doesn't matter when the FCS game is.

Well, it could matter as it does to the SEC teams that do it that way. Breaks up the "murderer's row" and give our guys a break from the UCFs and Cincinnatis of the world.

Murderer's row.

Please pray for Georgia having to schedule their FCS game between Vanderbilt, Kentucky, and Georgia Tech.

I hear you, but that also sets them up for trap games occasionally. The open date week matters - don't want it too early. But the FCS game doesn't.

Okay, got it.
But I wouldn't put much faith in that. (It's why I didn't open it initially.) Until the AAC releases it's schedule, I think everything is up in the air - with the exception of the Purdue game. And the AAC is notoriously slow about releasing their schedule, and will probably be doubly so this year since they have to reconstruct everything after UConn's Amerexit (copyright pending).

Not if you look at the actual numbers. But what people "feel" about it has to do with Purdue being a buy game on the road vs. Ole Miss being part of a home and home in our stadium. I'll be honest, I would feel a lot better about playing @ Purdue if we were getting a return game.

The OOC schedule is set. The AAC works around those games.

We could do that IF we also played their SEC schedule.

During the regular season, we played 4 games against Playoff Poll ranked opponents last season... Bama played 2. Bama played 2 teams with losing records OOC and an FCS team. Their toughest OOC game was Southern Miss.

Auburn and Texas A&M are the only two teams that played more than 4 ranked teams in the Playoff Poll. Miss St, ole miss (thanks to playing us) and LSU played 4, everyone else played 3 or less.

There was only 2 conferences with 5 10 win teams. The AAC was one of them. I think you are incredibly under selling the strength of our conference. Even if Clemson wins the NC, our power rating is still higher than the ACC.

We may then have the most powerful and mighty league in football [statistically], but again we do not have to play an SEC conference schedule.

5 of the top 13 teams in the playoff poll were from the SEC.

10 wins is also an admirable accomplishment but can quite often be a result of weak scheduling.

This is simply my opinion. And, it is somewhat based on the fact that the Tigers have been perennially rated with one of the weakest schedules in both football and basketball. It is what it is.

9/25/19 Phil Kaplan, college sports editor wrote-...Memphis beat just one team that finished with an above .500 record last year, and that one team (Houston) was missing its star quarterback... The Tigers, after all, are 0-3 in bowl games and 0-5 in December under Norvell.

Also in 2019, Athlon Sports wrote-...The league believes its aggression in scheduling will carry it further. Aresco specifically cites a mandate that he gave his member institutions five years ago to start scheduling as tough as they could, no matter the home-and-away structure of the deals. His message to schools like Houston — still angry about being left behind during the formation of the original Big 12 — and Cincinnati, a Big East team left alone after traditional rivals Louisville and West Virginia were scooped up, was to play their way out of the problem.

“I don’t know if I’d call it a mandate, but there was a very strong suggestion that every school schedule at least two P5 schools per season, and of course now we like to call them ‘other P6’s,’” Aresco says.

Everyone bought in, which is why you’ll see the AAC playing a slew of top-30 programs in the first three weeks of the 2019 season: Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Washington State, Stanford, Wisconsin, Michigan State, NC State, Ohio State and Auburn.
