WKU/UTSA
assuming that neither of their last two scheduled games get canceled, will they be able to schedule a 12th game for Dec. 5 or 12? (or even Dec. 19 if they don't play in the championship?)

Would they be allowed to play each other? (Since WKU was short a conference game (ODU) and UTSA will be short a conference game (Rice)?) I haven't followed along closely enough, but I guess maybe Rice-UTSA could be rescheduled for 12/19...

That still leaves WKU. Would they be allowed to schedule a fifth non-con or schedule a CUSA team with an opening? Seems like they should be allowed to play 12 if they want to

RE: WKU/UTSA
19th? What purpose would it serve to reschedule other games for the day after the C-USA championship is being played? MTSU is the only team in C-USA who has played more conference games than UTSA has, and no one has played more games in total. There are teams who could stand to play another game, but we're not one of them. You guys have played a grand total of 5 games this year. Start a thread about games you could maybe reschedule.

No reason in the world to add in the expense for either team to play this game.......

means nothing and adds nothing to either program.

i feel like someone really can't be this dense...but if so I'll attempt to lay it out

first off, the 19th! umm, because the B1G, Pac 12, Big 12, SEC, ACC, MWC, MAC have all expressed a willingness to play any postponed/canceled games on the 19th, provided that the team isn't playing in their league's championship game that weekend. So the purpose of playing a game that weekend is so the athletes can get as many chances to compete as possible if they want. I mean honestly, it seems like that was fairly easy to guess why it was thrown in as a possible option (even though it was in no way the main point of the original question as it was thrown in as an extra aside). However, I suppose if "Volkmar" is in charge in the UTSA athletic department then they should definitely not play any more games once the Roadrunners are mathematically eliminated from contention because they "serve no purpose"

I didn't use MTSU as an example because I assumed their game against Charlotte was getting rescheduled for Dec. 12th. They would now have no normal regular season openings (again, the 19th was not part of my original question, but I suppose I can add here that MTSU could maybe an extra non-con game on the 19th if they wanted/were allowed?)

WKU and UTSA were the original focus because they are the two teams that have already played 9 games, are scheduled to end their seasons on the weekend of Nov. 28th (while many schools don't end until Dec 10-19), and are currently slated to only play 7 conference games.

This thread was not about teams that could "stand to add another game"; there are certainly a lot of schools that fit that bill, and guess what? I'd definitely love to see my alma maters play the maximum number of allowable games. However, North Texas isn't a part of this because, as of right now, the schedule is currently full. The next four, normal regular season weeks are all booked up and the lone conference game that could be rescheduled (UAB) is most likely going to be playing a CUSA championship game the weekend of Dec. 19th and won't be available to play that week.

I mean, honestly, this thread was started out because I'm impressed with WKU and UTSA for making it through the season relatively unscathed and in almost "normal" fashion in a completely non-"normal" 2020 year. I would think it would be a point of pride or a badge of honor to be a team that actually managed to play a normal 12-game regular season schedule in 2020 - not many teams have a chance of doing that.

My undergrad alma mater plays in a conference that kicked off the season with zero non-conference games and has no chance of playing 12 games. North Texas, obviously, has zero chance at getting to 12.

heck, you can look through my posting history and see that I have posts in August talking about schools with "normal" 12-game schedules. It's just a subject that interests me.

Obviously, it is evident from the lone replies by the school's representatives (Volkmar) and (WKUYG) that these two team's are not nearly as fascinated with "completing" a 12-game regular season schedule as I am in knowing if any schools will actually accomplish the feat (and for the record, Texas State looks like they might be the first to do so (albeit at possibly 1-11) on November 28th. They currently have played 10 (TEN) games and both of their next two opponents have openings in case one of those games does have to get postponed).

Well, that's enough out of me. I've typed more words in this one post (and thread) than I've done on here in over 4 years. I just wanted to answer the question posed in the event that it was an authentic/non-trolling response.

RE: WKU/UTSA
I meant to address the fact that all three responses seemed to think that my thread was only proposing a WKU-UTSA game. I re-read my original post, and that was not what it said.

I started out by asking if they were even allowed to add a 12th game. I then mentioned possibly playing each other, but I closed with wondering if they'd be allowed to add an additional $$ game in non-con and mentioned that they should be allowed to play 12 IF they WANT to

edit: also wanted to say that I'm not forgetting anybody. Southern Miss wasn't included because they are currently schedule for a full 12-game season

Well, that's enough out of me. I've typed more words in this one post (and thread) than I've done on here in over 4 years. I just wanted to answer the question posed in the event that it was an authentic/non-trolling response.

I would be okay with playing someone on December 5th, even though I'm not as fascinated with the prospect of actually playing 12 games as you apparently are. If we finish with 11 games played, I'll feel we've played more than our share already compared to the rest of the nation. So it's in that sense that I don't feel the game is necessary. If the players want it, that's something altogether different though, as I would probably leave it up to them.

I would not however be okay with playing on the 12th or the 19th (unless the chips happen to fall our way and we actually qualify for the C-USA championship game, as unlikely as that is). The reason for it is that early indications say there's a chance we could possibly be invited to the Tropical Smoothie Cafe Bowl on 12/19, the New Mexico Bowl on 12/24, or the First Responder Bowl on 12/26. If we're in one of the latter two, I really would rather not play a game on the 12th or 19th with the injuries we've already had this year. I would rather us have at least two weeks between our last game and a potential Bowl game.

Prior to our postponement against Rice, we were the only team in the entire nation to play 8 games consecutively without a single bye week, and have had plenty of injuries to show for it. One of the reasons we may have had such a good showing against UTEP this weekend could be that we finally had a week off to rest for the first time this season, albeit that some of our players were out 'resting' with COVID.

But no, I wasn't being "dense". It was my gut reaction to seeing a thread suggesting we schedule yet another game late in the season, right before a possible bowl game, when it might be our best chance at really getting healthy again.

RE: WKU/UTSA
Don’t understand the harsh reply to original post, but to answer your question, our AD has stated that if the Rice game is not rescheduled then we would be allowed to schedule a 12th game. I would hope that game would be Dec 5 though, not Dec 19. Might be okay with Dec 12 if we’re not in a Dec 19 bowl game.

RE: WKU/UTSA
I had not considered the bowl games. That was really dumb of me

Now, with the bowl games in mind, I would think a game on the 5th would be a nice pick-up for sure. It might work against you to have too much down time in the event that the opponent has more recent live-game experience.

Thanks for the info, Fear. Sounds like the answer to the question is "yes" the teams will be allowed to re-schedule if they want.

As far as buy games, that was where my head was going. What if, say, TCU calls up UTSA or WKU and says "we have an opening on Dec. 12th (we aren't going to the B12 championship) and we'd like to pay you one million dollars to come to Amon Carter"?
