Maine receives 24 votes and is ranked 25th in this week's poll. New Hampshire is ranked 23rd with 42 votes.
If the football team wins out, they will be 7-5 and squarely on the bubble.
How nice would it be to have an extra win over Bryant or Wagner or something, and not a loss to Liberty? 8-4 in the CAA is in. 7-5 is dicey. STOP SCHEDULING TWO FBS GAMES.
I think 7-5 will be seen as 7-3 vs D1AA and in. I think the UNH game will essentially be a play-in. Iím just glad Sacred Heartís a D1, if theyíd scheduled a D2 there theyíd be cooked with only 6 D1 wins
I stand by my position that if Maine can't afford football without being a bodybag twice in one season, Maine shouldn't be playing football.
Didn't football pocket around 1.3 million for those two FBS games..?
I hear what AMC says in terms of W/L, but Bosox is correct in saying that the FCS selection process reliably ignores FBS losses. (And Maine has won a few FCS games, too... Not exactly sacrificial lambs in that regard.)
Bottom-line: I'd have to guess that football has/will make more than hockey this season, and it still is breathing.
(Calling Mr. Pickett... ;))
If Maine doesnít have football, what do they do to meet Title IX compliance in the scholarship department? Cut 63 womenís scholarships? Add menís sports? Do the alternatives for football lose more money than football already does? What about the income that comes from tuition and fees from the 30+ football players not on scholarship?

That's what? $500,000? Assuming they don't get ANY financial assistance from the university (yeah, right) then we can factor that into the $2-3 million the university would save by not having football.Quote:

Also, are you assuming that those 30 spots in the student body will NOT be filled by 30 other students who will also pay about $500,000? Those spots will just go empty?
she is a black ice night. Donít drive, she is a bit Fed up.
Anyone know if there's a web site or forum to sell or buy Maine hockey tickets on?
Other than the official site.
