Been having a friendly exchange over on the Elon board regarding this matter. One of them thinks UA should be forced to forfeit because that would bring heat on the Gov. Apparently they have an outsized opinion of our fan base's influence. Lol. Not exactly the Texas, Alabama or Oklahoma category. Would be more like a blow drier in a hurricane (trying to keep it clean here).

They ain't wrong. This should be an automatic L for us, because WE can't make the game. Maybe the leaders at UA, who DO have some pull with the state, can tell Cuomo to get his head out of the dark place it's in. Trying to keep politics out it, but I can't stand him. The sooner he's gone, the better.

 

This needs to be either an L for Albany or it needs to be classified as essential travel and played at Elon, as scheduled.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but according to the schedule posted here so far, the two remaining dates are Sept. 30 and Oct. 14 -- one will be taken by Elon (we hope!) and the other would be an open date. Either way, UA will have only 5 home games, right? Bummer.

That's what I'm thinking. Between 9/30 and 10/14..one is the (road) Elon placeholder and one is a bye week, right? If so, that would seem to suggest that Homecoming is a different date?

Digging through this a bit more..it looks like us, Elon and Towson are the only CAA teams that haven't released their schedules yet. Between everyone else's schedules..it looks like Elon will be playing both us and Towson..as only 6 other CAA schedules have Elon on them. Our free dates are 9/30 and 10/14..but Richmond says they're playing Towson on 10/14. Which suggests Towson would be playing Elon on 9/30. Meaning 10/14 might be the held date for us to play at Elon. Making 9/30 the bye week.

Some interesting updates to this. Towson has since released their 2017 schedule..and says they're playing Richmond on 9/30. Richmond's schedule still says they're playing at Towson on 10/14. Towson says they're at Elon on 11/4.

 

EDIT: Nevermind..thanks '72!

If they don't explain when our schedule is released (supposedly today) I'll try to ask Benson about it tonight at the BB game.
