    Default 2019 Out of Conference Thread

    Let's kick off the 2019 "Week 1 Out-of-Conference" schedule thread with Edinboro travelling to Michigan to take on Grand Valley State on Sept. 7.

    Can you say "ouch"?

    Hat tip to Boro for scheduling a major player in D2 football to start the season.

    Sheesh that's a hell of a opening game for Boro hopefully they can remain healthy and semi-competitive in that game.

    Is the whole conference open in week 1? I hope Shepherd grabs another game but historically they haven't scheduled the 11th game.

    Since there are so many teams in the conference, have teams in the PSAC in the past looked at scheduling one of the other teams that aren't on the "regular" season schedule? For example IUP and Shepherd don't play this year but decide to play in week 1 just to get the extra game and keep travel costs down?

    In 2018, all 14 teams in the PSAC were active Week 1. Shippensburg and Clarion played each other in one of those false-OOC games you're referring to.

    It has been done.

    I would not be surprised if IUP does not have an OOC game with it being a slight rebuilding year.

    Edinboro is getting paid handsomely to play GV. They get 3 great OOC games and lots of cash.

    I'd sure hope. Being a sacrificial lamb should pay well.

    Slippery Rock opens at Wayne St (MI).
    West Chester finishes their four-game series with Bentley.

    Any word if IUP has decided to play an OOC game?

    Without divulging financial information what's the average payout for traveling to a top 5 D2 program? I know the FCS teams generally pay $10-35K for D2 games curious what the GV, NWMS, Valdosta's pay for out of conference games especially against teams they'll be heavily favored to beat.

    From what I was told Edinboro is making double your range for the three games (two games are at Lubbers).

    Wow then that trip is well worth whatever the final scores will be in those 3 games. GV averages 8000-13k per game at home so I'm sure between ticket sales, concession and parking they're still making a decent penny after cutting the check to the Boro.

    Hopefully they say they love you after they are done...

    I read In Koz's sports page that Shepherd would be open to play an FCS team. I hope they don't because it doesn't help the D2 regional rankings. They'd be better off playing one of PSAC teams they don't play this year. Why not IUP and Shepherd in a two year deal or at least 2019? Both teams are in a rebuild process and it would be a great game. And they play at Shepherd since I can get there in 10 minutes.

    Good concept but not happening. If IUP plays a game it would be a cupcake.

    You really classify them as a rebuild? Perhaps an academic rebuild. Player-wise, providing they can pass English, they have a ton back next year.

    The JUCO WR they already got is a stud. More on the way.

    You'd have to ask a HC or an AD to get the right answer...

    Frostburg State is joining the MEC i believe next year. That would be a nice close opponent for a good portion of the conference. I'm hoping Shepherd and them can start a yearly thing with them considering they are about 90 mins apart.
