Why only 10 football games Ala A&M
« on: June 09, 2021, 12:11:49 PM »
I am just curious why Ala A&M only have 10  football gamest this year.  You have a potential NFL QB draftee so you would like to get as many games as possible for him plus with the pandemic last year you want to make up some of the money lost.  Your thoughts

I saw the schedule but didn't even notice that until your post.  Wonder if an 11th game will be added????  :shrug:

Maybe they are still trying to find a home game to fill one of those open dates? Or an FBS payday?
Failing to plan is planning to fail.

I did just hear that they may be seeking an 11th opponent.


I may want to check out their first home
game vs SC State.

We have five home games so my bet is Hicks is looking for a payday game.

It happens more often then folks realize. Happen to us a couple of times in back to back years. If I recall correctly, the conference had just changed it's format and it cause scheduling issues. That left us without games because we had to drop a couple OOC we already had scheduled.

Then your memory is bad.  You never heard us say much negative if anything about Betty Austin.

She was AD before Hicks.  You didn't hear anything about Martin who brought us into the SWAC.  We have had problems mostly with coaches not ADs.

Our schedule hasn't been released yet.... stop believing all of these new pop up hbcu blogsters.  When its complete it will be released by the school.  The school hasn't released a schedule yet.

"The school hasn't released a schedule yet."

Therein lies the problem and a reason I agreed with Ceedog.

http://onnidan2.com/fbsked21/schooldisplay.cfm?schoolid=1

Onnidan put together our away schedule based on the HBCU schools we have to play per the conference.  Hicks could have already put out the in-conference schedule and put TBD on the date for the OOC game he is trying to get.

There's a university in Fayetteville that they can pay to beat.
Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.
