Maine-Albany football

Postby MrPapaBear » Tue Feb 24, 2009 10:32 pm

Getting conflicting reports about this. Heard Cos say a few weeks ago that it's not on the '09 schedule. Now there's talk among others in the program that it just might be.

Worth investigating by those with the resources to do so. :?:

I've tried.......but even Albany fans are conflicted about this.

No clue. You mean the University of Houston? You've heard we're playing them next year?

Sounds a bit off the wall.

The Albany stuff I'm hearing has us going there next year. If we also play Houston -- another FBS team -- we'd undoubtedly be going to Texas to play them. That would give us seven away games. Not a good recipe for success.

Can you guys post what you know of the schedule so far?
The Houston game doesn't seem to hard beleive from the point that somewhere it was noted that Maine was after 2 BCS games although you are right PapaBear 7 aways games doesn't sound like a recipe for success.

Obviously nothing is official until Maine posts its own schedule. But based on what others have posted (some of which could change, based on how we fill our remaining open dates), here's what I have ...

9/5 STILL OPEN
9/12 @ Northeastern
9/19 STILL OPEN
9/26 @ Syracuse
10/3 H vs Delaware
10/10 @ Hofstra
10/17 H vs Richmond
10/24 STILL OPEN
10/31 H vs UMass
11/7 @ JMU
11/14 H vs URI
11/21 @ UNH
11/28 PLAYOFFS START

I know that Wagner has an opening on Sept.19th now that Delaware State ditched them for Delaware which had been ditched by Furman for a 2nd FBS game due to financial concerns. Knowing that budget cuts are looming, I guess that the Houston game would make some sense on Sept.5th however there will most likely be hurricane issues. :roll: Then if they could get Wagner at home on Sept.19th that would give them 5 home games. If Maine does play Houston, that would probably give them another $300K which means they would rake in about $750K next fall in guarantees. :shock:

Thanks guys, pretty similiar schedule to last year just no NEC games yet or an Iona caliber opponent. Will be interesting to see what the OPEN dates bring.
