Saturday Sept. 12 - Presbyterian Blue Hose

Looks like we have a full schedule unless we drop Presby or JCSU.

Temple at Charlotte in 2015

10/3/2015 here in Charlotte. Return game on 9/24/2016 in Philly. This gives us our NCAA required 5th FBS home game with the 4 conference home games.

Temple at home is awesome.

This. It would also be nice if we continue to play Temple in basketball.

That looks like a solid schedule, we are at least going to have a couple Ws on that so our first year in FBS isn’t too brutal.

I’d still be surprised if we keep JCSU on there, but we’re not bowl eligible so I guess it doesn’t matter.

Doesn’t matter, hasn’t our future FBS conference mate ECU shown you that playing D2 schools is legit?

So the Georgia State game is a Thursday nighter?

The teams we should play:
Temple
Presby
Ga st.
JC Smith
Ecu
Marshall
ODU
FIU
UAB
And 3 of the following (I’d guess USM or LA Tech would be 1 of these).
USM, LA Tech, Utep, North Texas, USTA, Tulsa, Rice or Tulane.

I can see that JCSU game getting replaced for a home and home with a MAC team.

Since the Temple game now gives us 7 home games for 2015; there may be little motivation, given our being none bowl eligible that season, to replace the JCSU game with an away FBS game. You’d give up a home game for an away, a probable win for a probable lose, and a game of relatively high local interest that could bring a decent gate revenue. There won’t be too many years after that when we get 7 home games either.

First FBS game in the Georgia Dome will be a great way to start 2015. I bet we get 3,000+ Niners there.

Looks like another Normbulance Roadtrip! Also cheetah club? yes please…

Very smart job in scheduling Georgia State as our first FBS opponent. My God, they are awful. They would be a bad FCS team.

Two years is a long time and a lot can change by then. Just this August we thought GW, NCCU and Chuck So. would be cakewalks.

Fortunately, if we get 500 to the Ga. Dome, we’ll have more fans there than Ga. State.

This will be first game of the season though, and its ATL not Clinton, and its first ever FBS game for the program, and we will have two classes of seniors who graduated with football - I don’t know about 3,000 but I am betting we will have a very good crowd there.

According to Presby fans we had 500 there. But when we are playing bigger names attendance will be better. That being said people in the state of Georgia barely know Ga. State even exists, so don’t expect our fan base to have more than 200-600 there.

I would estimate 500-600 there, it was thick but not packed like sardines in the visitor section. There were a few in the grass, in seats along the rails, and on the Presbyterian side as well. That’s not a great turnout…but I don’t think was under 500 (although that argument can be made). It was also the 5th consecutive week of football, and after the first road game that had horrific weather and a wreck on the Interstate going up there.

If ever there as going to be a small group traveling, that was the week :slight_smile:

I don’t think we’ll get 3,000 there, but think there will be a good showing with it being the first FBS game, it being in the Georgia Dome (can we drink in there, I think so!!!), and being in a popular destination.

One a different subject, has anyone heard anything else about Kentucky getting on the schedule this year?
