2018 Football Schedule

Postby Jiggs » Tue Jan 23, 2018 9:53 pm

9/8 at Florida State
9/15 vs Mercer
9/29 at Kennesaw State
11/3 vs Wofford
11/10 at The Citadel
11/17 at ETSU

Can anyone fill in other dates? Why do we have to wait so long for the schedule to be released?

Is this confirmed?

I know some of the guys on the FU Board have deduced this down, but I think a few of them overlooked that playing UTC at home on 10/20 is still a possibility for the 'Dins.

Generally speaking, it revolves around contracts being approved and signed by all parties. Could be waiting for that process to be completed by our D2 opponent for next year.

Just saw that Mercer announced the schedule...at Samford on 9/15 - early in the season this year.

Both teams coming off tough games with Florida Schools the prior week - Samford at FSU and Mercer at home vs. Jacksonville.

Mercer's announcement doesn't confirm the "Samford at Furman game on 10/20" though as Mercer is at Chatt on 11/10, so that doesn't 'lock out' Chatt being @ Furman on 10/20.

EDIT: Actually, it looks like Mercer's announcement does indirectly confirm that Samford will NOT play at Furman on 10/20. The HomewoodHounds will be at Furman on 10/6. Reason is that they only OTHER date left, apart from 10/20, that FU could have played Chatt was 11/10 and since they are playing Mercer that day, that means the Mocs will be FU's Homecoming opponent on 10/20 and the BullPups get to visit Travelers Rest 2 weeks earlier

RE-EDIT: Furman released their schedule & Samford IS at Furman on 10/20. Furman is off on 10/6 & plays UTC at Home on 11/3. Someone on the FU Board must have ‘eliminated’ that 11/3 date for UTC by mistake.

Wait....did FUB just equate Jacksonville with FSU? :lol: Is Mercer playing the Jaguars or the Dolphins who they beat 48-7 last season? I think it is the Dolphins, and why that would be considered a "tough" game I have no idea. Two years in a row? I guess that Reinhardt couldn't be worked into the Bear's schedule, :lol: :lol:

Jiggs I was pleased last year that it was announced early. I thought we had finally broke the habit of announcing the schedule a week before KO. It has to have something to do with contracts not being signed. Perhaps we are waiting to announce that Montgomery game.
