    Or we rather have a decent opponent come to town, have a chance to beat said opponent, generate some revenue for the community, create some excitement about a game, have a fully packed stadium with an awesome atmosphere for the fans/students/recruits, and make some headlines in the region (even if we don't win).

    I see your point.... yeah let's play an FCS school... why not...?
    It's not an either or. That's not the argument. All any of are saying is that 2-1's don't make financial sense. I'd love to play a P5 at home in a H&H or a H&H with a third pay day, but I'm not giving away a potential of $3M payday for two games in order to get about $250K in extra ticket sales for ONE game.

    no one has said it wouldn't be. We are simply saying we shouldn't mortgage the farm just to say that we have.

    I don’t think you get paid for the away game if the agree to a home/home.

    Unless I’m misunderstanding you.

    No.

    I'm saying you don't lose your one off money game if you get a P5 h/h. You just play two P5s.

    You drop an OOC G5 from the schedule instead. Right now we're scheduling for: FCS, P5 money game, two G5s home and away. With a P5 home game, you'd lose one of the G5s. You just have to play 2 P5s in two different years.

    That is actually an excellent point. We will play 2 P5’s in that scenario. But it will feel like we are leaving money on the table by not being paid for 2 P5’s but only 1

    we're not leaving money on the table if the other P5 is a H&H. It's no different financially to have a H&H G5 or a H&H P5.

    I said it will “feel” like we are leaving money on the table - playing two P5’s in a season for the price of one.

    Don’t get me wrong. I get it. As long as we are replacing a P5 for a G5 and we still play a money game, then it works. But some will think playing a P5 without “sacrificial lamb” compensation feels like a waste.

    I know our fans will be giddy to play a P5 at home... as in “We belong now!!”

    Or some of our fans realize maybe some of the close losses we have to P5s go the other way if we have the Power of Paulson in our favor as Lunsford calls it.
