    06 schedule

    Sort of odd that the location is listed as TBA. With one road game in Austin, I can't imagine playing only 5 in Cbus.

    Sat 09/02/2006 Northern Illinois TBA TBA
    Sat 09/09/2006 Texas Austin, Texas TBA
    Sat 09/16/2006 Cincinnati Columbus, Ohio TBA
    Sat 09/23/2006 Penn State Columbus, Ohio TBA
    Sat 09/30/2006 Iowa Iowa City, Iowa TBA
    Sat 10/14/2006 Michigan State East Lansing, Mich. TBA
    Sat 10/21/2006 Indiana Columbus, Ohio TBA
    Sat 10/28/2006 Minnesota Columbus, Ohio TBA
    Sat 11/04/2006 Illinois Champaign, Ill. TBA
    Sat 11/11/2006 Northwestern Evanston, Ill. TBA
    Sat 11/18/2006 Michigan Columbus, Ohio TBA

    They could be waiting to see if they make the 12 game schedule permanent. If they have a 2, 3 or 4:1 deal, they could wait and assign the 1 until they know what the game number will be, but you're right, they will never leave themselves with only 5 home games.

    Good point, although if the game isn't in Columbus it'd probably be a neutral game in Chicago. NIU's field holds 31,000.

    Soldier Field, I'd guess? That'd be pretty cool for me. :biggrin:

    Why would we ever agree to play N. Ill anywhere but the Shoe when so many teams would be tickled to play here? I am guessing/hoping this is listed TBA because they simply because whoever wrote it didn't have the location in whatever he was referenceing.

    I gotta feel Oh8ch has the right idea.

    Somebody probably was putting out the news and thought, "damn, of course this must be in the Shoe, but it doesn't say in my note here, so I better be safe and accurate to what I have so far."

    We'd never agree to play at Northern Illinois in DeKalb. The only reason to play in the Chicago area at all (like Soldier Field) would be to develop the recruiting pipeline a little.

    But we already play in Evanston almost every other year.

    Northern Illinois...like lambs to the slaughter. The only reason they would agree to play us is for the huge payday from a game in The Shoe.

    hey thanks.


    yeah i'm sure of that. no way they could get a home game in a stadium that holds 30K. unless they somehow weaseled a "neutral site" game like in soldier field or indianapolis. 99% says it is in columbus.
