Trip to the Oracle....Mysteries of Falcon Football Scheduling Revealed
Sentinel had a good article today on football scheduling. Can't type the whole thing in, but here are some highlights.
- Scott Seeliger is handling scheduling for the time being.
- You can't pile up 2-1s....and we know it.
- With that in mind, they hope MAC schools schedules games with return home games.
- The Arizona State (2007) and Virginia Tech (2008) games are off.
- In 2007, we have Boise and FIU at home, and are looking for a road game.
- In 2008, we're supposed to be at Wyoming and at Boise on back to back weeks, which we are trying to change.
- Pitt will be on the schedule for 2007, closing out a 2-1.
- We want another 2-1 with Pitt.
- Wyoming is coming here in 2009, and we are at Missouri that year.
- Seeliger says which it was "administratively" bad to give up Boise, Coach Brandon felt it was worth it.
- In return, the MAC is working to get BG a home game against a Big 10 opponent.
- The OSU game in 2010 will probably not happen.
