We might have the toughest schedule in the country next year.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

toughest OOC maybe*, but with 8 belt teams on the schedule, hardly the toughest schedule.

*I don't even think our OOC is the toughest, IMO.

I think he was referring to 2011, Florida, Mich St, Auburn as our 3 really tough games…though this year we face Mich St early, so they'll be ranked, Texas who will be a top 5 team and USF who could do something, even with a new coach. 3 top 25 teams makes for a tough OOC schedule.

Speaking of money, did we get a guarantee from the stadium in Michigan for selling our game, or just a % of ticket sales?

We probably have to pay Michigan state some amount.Technically this is a "home" game so whatever the contract was for.

My understading is that we will get either ALL or most of the gate.

I checked out the Michigan state board. Some are predicting a sellout, while others are predicitng a "small" crowd of only 30K or so. I had to laugh as that would be our highest attendance ever at a home game.

Ahhhh the joys of small time football.

;D

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

It sure as hell won't be any "small" 30K crowd. CMU got a crowd of 50K to the Bowl game there when they played Purdue a couple of years ago.

This is an "extra home game" for the MSU fans in a better facility and stll close to home. I say no less than 50K and probably closer to a sell out. It is going to be a nice chunk of cash for the stadium fund! Too bad we did not think of this concept years ago!!! That being said, it is our HOME game, bring the FULL roster, the FULL band and ALL the cheer people and DO IT RIGHT!
