Question. If you lose to Albany State, does this affect your chances? It's no given that you are going to beat Albany State for a second time.

that's all...   ???

If Tuskegee loses, they would end up with a 7-2 D2 record. That should be good enough to get a 5th, 6th or 7th seed in the tournament. I doubt a loss would knock them out.

Statement regarding November 12th football contest

Nov. 07, 2016 Football
TUSKEGEE, Ala. | Albany State University informed Tuskegee University last night that they will not honor their agreement to play the Golden Tigers on November 12. During negotiations last week, both Albany State and Fort Valley State University agreed to host Tuskegee depending on which team lost their game on November 5.

"I am very disappointed in Albany State's decision not to honor their agreement," Tuskegee University Athletic Director Curtis Campbell said. "As members of the SIAC, we must be able to trust the word of a member institution."

Both institutions (ASU and FVSU) were aware of the importance of this game to Tuskegee, who must now secure another opponent at this very late date, while also appealing the denied waiver request by the NCAA.

Tuskegee University will release the location and time of Saturday's game as soon as all necessary arrangements have been finalized.

If Albany ST initially agreed then reneged, that is just wrong!   :no:  

IMO, the game would have been for the good of the conference.  Now it seems that the SIAC will not have a representative in the playoffs.  

Whether or not TU's AD did his due diligence to find another game is another matter.

 :no:  This is not good.  Too bad that TU and Benedict can not play on Saturday.

 :tongue2:

My point is that if ASU initially agreed, they should stick to their word.  

If that was not their original position, then that is another story.  The chips fell as they should have.

J, I was referring to the Article. In my mind the season, the hopes and the aspirations for this year's football team over with and I want my team to move on to next. I am pretty sure that is the sentiment of the majority ASU fans and the players as well. Whomever made that decision might not be the ultimate person to make that decision if it was agreed upon. Especially if it wasn't a signed contract. Playing that game is pointless as far as I'm concerned. Maybe it could help the conference. Maybe it could help with revenue. But it's kind of like a consolation, consolation, consolation game. Could hurt our Brand.

I'm not surprised at all. There is nothing in it for ASU plus IMO I think Albany thought they were going to beat FVSU.  TU looks bad, the conference looks bad and now Albany St looks bad. Whomever made the decision at Albany to play the game should have talked to the football team ahead of time.
