Figured I would start a new thread we can update as the schedule comes out.
I haven’t seen any opponents or dates leak out yet, but the only home/homes I’m aware of are @ Marshall and maybe @ Evansville.
If you see any announcements share them here!
I assume at Wright State?
You may assume. No reason the Raiders don’t continue it.
According to Jeff Goodman, we will host an MTE from Nov. 17-19
Miami, Eastern Illinois, Coppin State…so we’ll play both at home
According to Rocco Miller, we will start the season @ Evansville on November 6th.
According to Rocco Miller, we will play @ St Bonaventure 11/25 and @ Marshall 12/2
I would guess Bonnies is a buy game, but not totally sure
Would be cool if it were the first in a home and home series
The Bonnies averaged 3,764 last year so I hope it isnt a buy game. But I guess it could be.
Their field house only seats about 5,400.
Attendance has nothing to do with buy games, money does. If they can afford to buy a game from Miami, they can afford it. That said, they did do a home/home with Buffalo that finished last season. Curious if the game they played against BG last year is the start of a home/home or a buy.
For basketball buy games about how much are we paying teams to come in and how much are we getting paid to play at their place?
Realize it may vary quite a bit depending on league/team etc. Ballpark numbers are fine.
We know for the most part about football away buy games…big bucks!
With the attendance we have at Millet would guess we can afford to pay them enough for a tank of gas and some comped Skyline Chili!
Give them enough Skyline Chili and they will make their own gas!!
Well said. Well, well said.
It is a buy game, we’re being paid $75k + 50 free tickets
Yes, date TBD. It’s the last game in the four game series.
Wouldn’t mind another home/home with NKU.
NKU would be nice home/home IMO…maybe you can get Dayton on a 2/1 or something.
I’m hearing one B1G road buy game that should be announced soon.
Dayton ain’t budging anytime soon. If Miami wants to play Dayton, it’s at UD Arena only.
Let me give the advice that Wright State fans know, focus on just getting to the NCAA and winning your conference. Don’t worry about playing Dayton.
I’ve heard even if Miami wants to play Dayton, there’s a chance it’s not happening because Dayton doesn’t want to. Same with multiple local programs. Miami is a team expected to have significant improvements this year. Until that reputation improves, coaches see it as a lot of risk for limited reward. It’ll add to the scheduling complexity this year and probably next.
OSU released their schedule today. Playing Miami either Dec 5th or 6th. Assuming Miami is looking to fill a slot around that date that’ll impact which they choose.
