But I'll take Delta State at GVSU on the 14th and currently the plan is to go up to the UP and Pictured Rocks and probably stop by Frankenmuth to end the week. Think I can talk someone into staying an extra day somewhere along the way to make Midland as well.

    Hey now, we were smart about it. We're doing it Friday so that we can go to the game on Saturday.
    I just might have had to put my foot down about it being on a fall Saturday. Not that it would have done me much good, but I would have put the foot down about it. But we're getting a better rate on renting the hall on Friday night instead.

    I think we could work something out for that.

And nullification factor/wiggle room? What does that have to do with scheduling an 11th game? The penalty to FSU impacted it's W/L and SOS numbers. And the 4 game penalty essentially equated to a loss. I'm not expecting GV to ever be subject to such a penalty... and would never use that potential as a reason to schedule an 11th game.

    For me, it's a tough call. I'd love another contest, but there are pluses to having an open date just before ones toughest match-up of the season. I would be all in if GV could leave that slot open and somehow get a waiver to have the 11th game the week before Edinboro. But the odds for that may not even exist.
    I don't know that DSU really hurt GVSU that bad last season. One, it was an out of region game. Two, it was against a team from the GSC which played a tough GSC schedule that included an undefeated team in VSU, West Georgia who had 1 regular season loss, West Alabama who was a 7 or 8 win team and a non-conference with Tarleton State who was undefeated in the regular season. While the record of the school was not good, it was mitigated by the strong schedule that DSU played which is also included in the NCAA's SOS calculation IIRC.

    Playing Adams State would not be a bad opponent. Playing William Jewel would be a game that would really hurt the SOS and opponents portion of the SOS, given the GLVC has not exactly been stellar in non-conference games recent years.

    Good points all around. I do wonder if Becker et al still fill that date somehow. And let's just run the table next year and it won't matter much who GV plays on that open date...though I guess the other conf leaders could also all run the table.

    Winning all the games makes the math a lot easier come playoff time.

    That may work for this year, but the anniversary can come up on gamedays in the future!

    That's not an issue...Cathy and I have celebrated many at a Laker game...August 31 seemed like a good idea 46 years ago....( yes we were married in the 2nd grade, it was common back then)

    Maybe having a bye week before the Ferris game isn't the worst idea. Hahaha
    Looks like GVSU will be hosting William Jewel for their 7th home game...nice pick up by AD Becker!

    Certainly not going to help out the SOS, but probably (hopefully) the winning percentage! Haha

    I'm hoping it doesn't improve the winning percentage. (Figure that out.)

    Hopefully that will allow for some fine tuning for the following week. A game is always different from a practice, plus some routines can stay in place. With any luck GV should be able to blow their season home attendance out of the water with these 7 home games. (Not sure if PO's count in attendance records.)
