Maine-FSU saga continues

Postby MrPapaBear » Sat Feb 07, 2009 11:41 am

More on Maine-vs-FSU. Sounds like resolution is imminent ... if this fan blog is to be believed.

For my money, I'd love to see the program take a $900K payday and schedule a mid-major FBS. Who in the h-e-double-hawkey-sticks wants to fly to Tallahassee in the middle of hurricane season and play in tropical heat and humidity?

This thing is just taking too long now......Michigan just completed its schedule by adding Delaware State. Why do I get the feeling that Maine is going to get screwed......again. :roll:

If we don't keep the FSU game or get $900,000 out of this......then Blake James deserves to be fired.

P.S. - I agree with you Papa about hurricane season......I was thinking the same thing. There always seems to be problems with football games down there during the first part of September.

Well, it looks like Maine will end up with $450,000 one way or the other. According to the blog below, Florida State will ensure that Maine receives $450,000 for their game vs. Syracuse by covering the difference between the FSU and Syracuse guarantees ($450,000-$300,000 = $150,000 is the example given and probably pretty close to the reality). Hopefully, this will all be confirmed soon.

FSU obviously refers to Fayetteville State University. You guys are following a dead trail with Florida State.
