    Sounds like the rumors about that game being cancelled are likely not true, but that it is not out of the question. Sounds like money may ultimately prevent Miami from backing out.

    BTW, Miami has a brutal schedule next year.:wow:

    If the game is changed (which I doubt), but IF it is...

    Where does the money go? Back into the General Fund? Or does it stay with football?

    I see what you mean:

    2008:
    Northwestern went 9-4 (Lost to Missouri in Alamo Bowl)
    Cincinnati went 11-3 (Lost to Virginia Tech in Orange Bowl)
    Boise State went 12 -1 (Lost to TCU in Poinsettia Bowl)

    Heh, we're probably the least scary of the that group. Kinda funny how the Miami AD says it's a possibility where CU is saying they haven't even considered talking to other schools about filling the potential scheduling hole. But I agree I don't see how Miami can afford to drop us, not to mention, it's a home game for them.

    If it got cancelled, would we try to fill the void? Would that even be possible given how late it is? We'd likely have to settle for a I-AA team. :huh:

    I-AA would go a long way towards a 10 win season :)

    K-State has a couple empty spots on their dance card. Can we play 'em twice?

    Sounds like the chances of Miami opting out of the game have gone way up.

    http://www.buffzone.com/blogs/buffzone-sports/2009/feb/28/miami/

    If they can find someone else like Bowling Green or Toledo (mentioned in the article) that gets the game on ESPN, I'm fine with it. I just don't want us left scrambling to schedule a 1-AA team.

    What happened to the rumor we play Ol' Miss at the new Cowboys Stadium instead?

    Miami (oh), Bowling Green, and Toledo all seem pretty similar. Either play one of them or grab another home game.

    Toledo is better than Miami of ohio. Bowling green has had some decent teams.

    Maybe we can play kent state or akron :smile2:

    I think CU needs to play hardball with this one. If they bail, we get the $750K and then reschedule a HOME game. At this point, most of the schedules are set. Finding a replacement now would be very difficult, and would likely involve a D-II team.

    Sounds like a Win/Win situation here....as long as we schedule a home team and bring in even more revenue

    How classic would it be if this does go down, we bring in another home game and essentially **** all over the rammies up north by not playing in Invesco for the very reason of not having enough home games....:lol: would be poetic

    If Miami thinks that they can fob us off with a different opponent without paying us the $750,000, Bohn ought to tell them to get stuffed.

    The neutral site game against Ole Miss in Dallas is pretty much impossible now, since BYU/Oklahoma is that same weekend. I can't see Mississippi coming to Folsom without a return date in sight.

    The AD probably told Ringo to be quiet and they would give him the "scoop".

    There has been way too much smoke around this game for too long. Finally it comes out that Miami wanted to better deal us.

    I won't repeat (C&P) premium info here, but will divulge that Ringo posted on Scout to expect an announcement in the next few days.

    Apparently it will be to name a different game being played that week, but it will still be an away game, not home. He indicates Miami very doubtful.

    Your AD doesn't have to say anything, those contracts are pretty air tight. They would have to pay the money.

    If Miami finds a comparable replacement like say Toledo, Ohio, etc., would Bohn have to accept it or would he still have the option of saying no, just pay us the 750K?

    Is there a way to search and find out what teams (in all conferences) have open dates that weekend? I can't seem to find an easy way to do that.
