Had to check again to make sure this wasn't being "announced" through a parody site. It's real.

Would also be funny as all get out if the Coots finished the season losing to Ole Miss, Fla, and us plus having Chattanooga Citadel them making the Dec 1 game useless.

Akron is a bottom feeder from the Mid-American Conference...

I said earlier this week that there was absolutely no way in he!! u5c would schedule a team, particularly a Power 5 team, with any realistic possibility of winning this game.

Akron actually beat Northwestern earlier this year so maybe there's a chance.

After we beat down the coots they won't be interested in a bowl game imo.


Ole Miss is horrible...

especially on defense, but if the Cawks can find a way to pi$$ this one away (which is entirely possible), with upcoming losses to Florida and Clemson, at 6 - 6 they won't be bowl eligible anyway.

If they can beat Ole Miss, it's off to the Birmingham, Liberty or Independence Bowl.

6-6 is bowl eligible......really crappy bowl eligible.....but bowl eligible nonetheless

2019 purple level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg


don't they also normally have to take some 5 and 7's


Posted: Nov 2, 2018 1:15 PM
 

just because there are so ###### many bowls?


7 wins is bowl eligible...


Posted: Nov 2, 2018 1:21 PM
 

unless there aren't enough 7 win teams to fill-out the games.

I’m afraid you’re mistaken, friend. Six wins quantifies bowl eligibility. Years ago, they only gave you credit for one win over a 1-AA opponent, but I don’t think they do that anymore. At 6-6, they would be bowl eligible. If you remember, FSU had to win their make up game last year to get to six wins to keep their bowl streak alive.

You still can only count 1 FCS win towards bowl eligibility.

All seven 2in teams but be selected before a bowl can take a 6 win team.


Re: 7 wins is bowl eligible...

Umm, wrong it is 6. No matter how many times you post 7 it will still be incorrect.

After we beat the brakes off of them, they might not even be interested in playing Akron the next week....

Akron game is like medicine on a wound.

Only reason the coots are scheduling a game is to try to forget what a huge loss they will have to us. End the season on a high note rather than have to deal with a beat down by their Daddy.

Of course some will argue they scheduled the game to play on Championship weekend as this is their only way to play that day. Seriously - coots will make a big deal of this - win or lose. Just pathetic.

I wonder if they will rest their starters against us

in order to prepare for their bowl-eligibility game.

Hoping at least Jake lasts the season and starts here - would like nothing better than a shot at an 0-4 starting record for him in our rivalry.

So there were no short bus schools available? Would be hilarious if the Zips Citadeled them. Is there anyway this doesn't look just plain sad?

But, but, but Muschamp said that day was reserved for the SEC championship game? Did he lie or did he just put 100 tickets on StubHub?


Re: Chickens schedule Akron ??


Posted: Nov 2, 2018 1:04 PM
 

Just looked at the Dec 1 CFB TV schedule. The SEC network is available that day as the SEC championship game is on CBS at 4:00 PM.

Will it be the Tuesday or Wednesday Maction game ?

Should be a real crowd coming off the Clemson loss.

We play Akron in 2020. I don't get what the big deal is. Who cares who the Cawks play, or what $hitty bowl game they may or may not go to. I'll be focused on the playoffs.

2019 student level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Well...

We didn't schedule them midway through the season when we know they suck just so we have a chance to become toilet bowl eligible. Who knows, they could be the next ucf in 2020 and be a challenge.

u5c looked for a winable game to head to the crapper bowl and soothe the pain of a major beat down to end the season.

Go Tigers!!!

I can't wait to see the empty stands in Billie Brice for a game against Akron after we beat the coots by 40.
