And the settlement is....what?:rolleyes:

Enough to pay for Bowden's contract in the midst of our financial struggles, I imagine.

I don’t know if true but I had heard Nebraska paid half with the stipulation we come back in future

I haven't heard the exact dollar amount, but Joe Dunn said the same thing about a settlement with an agreement to come back in the future on the link I shared yesterday in the candidates thread.

It seems odd to me that they're requesting a future match up. Do they have issues attracting G5 programs to Lincoln or something?

Maybe the perception they jumped on Bethune Cookman as soon as we beat Northwestern doesn’t sit real well

I agree.  It seems odd that they are insisting that Akron come to Lincoln again.  Unless they are trying to double-dip on a payment.  Something like "we will pay you the full amount, but you have to agree to play another game."  Who can understand the mind of a Fusker?

I believe this is exactly it. They want to get us back for a freeby

Would seem like a terrible deal for us if they have already indeed paid us 50% of the total without requiring a game.

Have the Fuskers paid 50%?  Or was that the initial anticipated settlement?  Sounds to me like nothing was going to be paid anyway until March 2019.  From the looks of it, nothing has been paid . . . and won't be paid unless you agree to a return game . . . which may mean that you eat the expenses of the cancelled game.  Darn Fuskers.

William's is a fool and deserves to be fired if he will accept that deal.

Which deal?

I'm with Florida AD, Scott Stricklin, who said “People are going to say things when they don't know what they're talking about and that's what happening there."

C'mon, man.  We already knew Williams was a fool who deserved to be fired for canning Bowden.  Am I right or am I right?

Are you happy if we he gave the farm away instead of demanding to be paid?

George Thomas: University of Akron athletics facing hefty buyout numbers related to football coaching changes

 

This article reports Nebraska will be paying us $650,000 w/ another game to be scheduled for 2025.

So between SC, NW, and NE, U of A athletics made about $2.1mill this year.  I'm sure that made the buy out an easier pill to swallow for the University (whether you agree with Arth hire or dont) (see correct math below)

More than $2.1 mil. I'm counting $3.15 mil. Most years we only get ~$1 mil

 

$1.3 mill South Carolina

$1.2 mil Northwestern

$650k Nebraska

Is the $650k from the Fuskers for this year's cancelled game only (and then another $1m or so in 2025)?  Or is the $650k for this year and 2025?   The latter sounds more like Fusker negotiating logic.  If you got $650k this year for the cancelled game and full price for another game in 2025, then your AD came through for you.  

 

Interesting that Nebraska hasn't announced anything about it that I can find.

I can't see it working out any other way. By the time 2025 rolls around that will be a 1.5 million dollar payday.  Maybe more.

Good for you.  That is much better than I was expecting, especially given the early reports that seemed like they were going to stiff you.
