Most G5s play a non-conference schedule of one FCS opponent and two G5s each season. The fourth non-conference game is usually a guarantee game against a P5. I'm not worried about the P5 right now.
Who would you like to see as the FCS and G5 opponents. If you're like me, you'd be happy with several options, but I set up the poll to limit you to three choices. Choose ONE FCS team and TWO G5 teams. I'm just curious who the favorites are, to see if there are any surprises.
I wonder if JSU will still play UTC as previously scheduled in Chattanooga in 2023? I can't understand how our AD signed up for this after UTC failed miserably to give us our return games after playing back to back years in Chattanooga. We did that to help UTC after ASU and GSU left the SoCon for Sun Belt. Gamecock 73
I went with troy state and UAB because in state games have greater potential for bigger crowds and rivalries. Went with UTC for an FCS game because I assume we would not travel to a FCS stadium and they owe us a bunch of home games.
We need to be playing South Alabama and UAB in regular rotation.
I dont have much desire to play South. Long trip and little history between the schools. Of course if there are no other options close I would gladly play.
Memphis and UNCC are option not terribly far away. Not much history just large cities to travel to.
I feel the same as Gem about USA. I mean, Mobile's only a 3-hour trip for me, with a Buc-E's along the way, so from that standpoint, I'm all in. But I don't have any connection with the Jaguars, and really don't place them any higher on a must-play scale than several out of state schools, some of which are closer to J'ville.
As for Memphis and UNCC, those would be awesome games, home or away, but they're not the kind of opponents you'd make an attempt to schedule on an ongoing basis. A one-off home-and-away deal, or (in the near term, while we're getting our FBS legs) a 2-for-1 arrangement would be fine. But you wouldn't put either on your schedule for a long-term 6-10 year kind of deal. You save those deals for rivals.
