Thread: 13th Game- A Question

    Default 13th Game- A Question

    http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.d...CLID=209272713

    Looks like Charleston Southern has added a 13th game:

    The University of Colorado has secured Charleston Southern University as the opponent to replace the Sept. 14 Fresno State football game which was postponed due to the record rainfall and subsequent flooding in Boulder, CU athletic director Rick George announced Monday.

    The game has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 19; the kickoff time will be determined once the Pac-12 Conference sets the television schedule for that day next Monday.

    Just curious- since we are also on the bye week that week, IF (not saying it happened) we were approached by Colorado, do you think it would be something we would agree to? Seems like with this being a non-playoff or bowl year it would be a good pay day if nothing else. Interested as to what others think.

    Absolutely. Like you said, it's a no playoff season so why not cash in?

    I think TK would like to get us another game. Problem is that a lot (..and according to TK.. a lot means no teams with available games slots) want to play us. Too much risk for no reward. If they win they were supposed to. If its close bad for them, if we did win...well they don't want that.. Also practicing for us won't help most teams since most of them don't play any similar style teams.

    Yeah this was a big topic after the announcement, I know tk was searching for another game, but none of the open dates worked out. The opening due to the floods in CO was obviously out of nowhere. I would be really interested to know if TK was in contact with them about it at all. And to answer your question, if he was in touch with them then hell yes he'd have been all over it.

    How are they being allowed a 13th regular season game?

    We were discussing this earlier and my hypothesis was that there's some connection to the fact that they have two sub-D1 games.

    Of course, that could be not even remotely close.

    This is a 12 game season for FCS if they so choose to schedule 12 games. The NCAA may have granted it with the situation Colorado went through due to all the flooding and all.

    This is how it's always been at GSU. It will be interesting to see what FBS schools want to invite NDSU to fill a slot?. In the years to come I don't think we will see many FCS vs FBS matchups.
