Default Re: USC backs out of 2019 road trip to ECU

What would be a dick move is doing what UNC did to us. We played in CH in 2007, and they were supposed to return in 2010. They refused to, and we didn't get the return game until 2013.

(someone correct me if this is not accurate, but I'm almost certain this is how it went down)

I like that we play South and North Carolina teams but let's rock and roll with the big boys as well.
WE DO!! We play a SEC schedule and every year we play perennially ranked, multi-time ACC Champ and current National Champ - CLEMSON.
What more do you want???

Maybe someone other than the usual? Maybe play in Atlanta in the Chik-fil-a kickoff against someone we don't face annually? Playing ECU, UNC, NC State gets old.

Makes us look bad to who? Nobody outside of us and ECU care whether this game happens. Honestly most of our fans probably don't care one way or the other if we play them or would even prefer to play somebody else. Certainly our fans prefer having 7 home games, so we're left asking if we really care what ECU fans have to say, and I personally don't. Anyone taken the time to go to their boards to see what they have to say and apologize? I certainly haven't. Maybe some Clemson fans will try to use this as smack, but in 2 weeks nobody is going to remember this.

If you want to cancel the Clemson game then sure I'm with you. The fact is we play an SEC schedule plus Clemson every year. Give me 3 teams we should steamroll every single year. Ask Oklahoma how they liked scheduling Houston and Ohio St last year.

I'll second this. Our SEC schedule alone keeps our SOS strong. I wouldn't mind a few gimme games here and there. Playing Clemson once every 2 years works for me. Though of course if we did that the Upstate would never shut up about it.

There's nothing to lose by scheduling a big-name OOC opponent for the first game of the year.

Oklahoma says hi. Ran the table in conference but was held out of the CFP due to losses to Houston and Ohio St. Considering you generally have to make these schedules years in advance instead of the year leading up to it I'm going to pass on that potentially biting us in the ass because it fell on the wrong year and because we scheduled it 3-4 years prior we had no clue that would be the wrong year.

Uh yes.

They game.

Washington proved this year you don't need a tough OOC to make the CFP, while Oklahoma and PSU did not

I said "A" big name opponent. You cited 2 games for Ok St. Also, the CMU game hurt Ok St more than anything else (unfair or not).

At any rate ECU definitely benefits from this as much as we do as has been stated already. It's not like we're replacing this game with another one against another team similar to ECU.

We already play a big name OOC opponent.

Sounds like you need to get new "Clemson friends"
Mine actually thought it was pretty cool that we have a million to throw around like that

That said, why do you care what Clemson friends say?

In 2013 they said a home game made $6.26M average. I'm sure that number is $7M+ by now.

So even with paying $1M to get out of this game, they are doing just fine I would say.

$1M really isn't that much money nowadays

First off, let's agree that we're not contending for a national title anytime soon.

Having agreed on that, what matters most is how we do in the SEC, so a potential game one loss to a strong OOC opponent doesn't really affect our season that much.

If by some fluke chance we had run the table, the Clemson game is our last game of the regular season. If we lose that game, that knocks us out of the playoffs anyway.
