Jacksonville game

I am getting word from campus that Jacksonville has dropped us from the 2014 schedule.

Wow, I hope they had to open up their wallets to break that contract. If that's true, the SoCon better step up and guarantee that no one will schedule them in the future.

I bet we'd end up with a 10 game season which really hurts playoff chances. Sure would have been nice to have scheduled a 12th game now.

UVA wise is the replacement.

We have to go 7-1 in D1 competition to make the playoffs this year

Georgia Tech is D-1, so we actually just need to 7-2.

The easiest way is just to win the SoCon.

Other than Citadel, we have a very unexciting home schedule this year.

Speaking of contract buy-outs, I've also been told that we didn't get that big paycheck for not playing FSU last year either because Lawyers

Any word on Jacksonville's reasoning for backing out so late in the process?

Our second straight year with a schedule change (Baylor in for Florida State last year), but that was pretty early on. This a late change by the Dolphins and it surprised me. I already wrote a Jacksonville preview, I have to go back change it.

Wonder why this happened?

I just wonder why UVA-Wise keeps wanting to play us.

Apparently, Jacksonville gave no real plausible explanation for dropping us.
