Morgan State...? :puke:

I have zero issues scheduling a gimme every season, especially when you look at the rest of it. @  Scott Frost-led Nebraska, @ probable ranked Northwestern (with a potential 1st round draft pick at QB) and @ much improved Iowa State that we became familiar with this season.

 

Every other program does it. P5 programs generally have 2-3 in their OOC.

There isn't a lowly DI FBS team we can whoop on instead of FCS?

Since the realistic season objective is to go to a bowl, we need the gimme W.

Wish we could have opened with Morgan State at home before travelling to Nebraska.

A 1-3 OOC is a rough way to start but it should help line the coffers.

Yes it is, my thoughts are we repeat what we did last year & we compete in MAC Championship this year, not just play in but compete & next year I think we are MAC Champs

BOLD prediction.  We might have the toughest OOC in the country looking at overall quality of opponents.

So in 2019 we have no FCS opponent and in 2020 we will most likely start the season with one. That seemed like the two biggest wishes from the thread on the noncoference slate this season and they are going in both directions in the next two years.

Other than Clemson - 2019 and beyond scheduling looks a lot like how I'd draw it up if it were up to me. I'd replace Clemson with a Duke or UNC if we're looking for an ACC roadie in that area. All in all I like :thumb:

Nice to have both of the most recent MAC rejects on the schedule together. Get those two and Marshall and UCF on the schedule in the same season and that's actually a pretty nice OOC schedule filled entirely with former MAC teams.

Totally OT but someone on here must know the answer.  A colleague of mine is a former MAC football player.  He says that even for home games the team stayed in a hotel the night before the game.  I said I didn't think Akron wouldn't do that because of cost.  What is the answer?

Pretty sure that is the case. And they do all arrive at once on a bus. They aren't driving around south campus or the dorms and picking them up in the charter one by one. ;)

They do.  I'm no insider, but I know that, at least for one week, they stayed at the West Akron Hilton near Summit Mall.  I don't know if they stay there for every home game or if they move around.  Probably just easier for the staff to have position meetings, regulate what the players are eating & what time they get to bed if they stay at a hotel.
