Florida State adds Delaware State to 2017 football schedule

http://www.fbschedules.com/2016/12/florida-state-delaware-state-2017-football-schedule/

The Florida State Seminoles have added the Delaware State Hornets to their 2017 football schedule, FSU announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

Florida State will host Delaware State at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Nov. 18, 2017. Per a report by 247Sports, FSU will pay Delaware State a $475,000 guarantee for the game.

Delaware State is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in the Football Championship Subdivison (FCS). The Hornets finished the 2016 season 0-11 overall and 0-8 in MEAC play.

The addition of Delaware State tentatively completes Florida State’s non-conference schedule for the 2017 season.

FSU is slated to open the 2017 season on Sept. 2 against Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta. The Seminoles also host ULM on Sept. 9 and travel to face arch-rival Florida on Nov. 25.

In ACC play, Florida State is set to host Louisville, NC State, Syracuse, and Miami (FL) and travel to Boston College, Clemson, Wake Forest, and Duke.

Based on previous years, the 2017 ACC football schedule will probably be released in mid-to-late January.

$475,000 is not enough.

1.  Florida state should be ashamed for booking this game.

2.  I wish the MEAC could stop the lower tier teams from accepting this type of game.

I am a little shocked to see the Hornets on their schedule.
And I am curious as to how this matchup came about.

???................"could" get ugly?  You obviously have not been sufficiently tuned into major college football powers matchups against our BCF programs?

If Del State is coming to Tallahassee next fall to play the Seminoles, I am assuming that FAMU plays them in Dover next fall, or do we?  We played them in Dover this past fall.

Agree with those that $475K is certainly not enough for what appears to be "filler" on the Seminoles schedule.  How did the opening on their schedule happen?
