Connecticut Football and the American has been a major cause of UConn Athletics’ budget issues. The travel associated with the AAC is largely the reason for their move back home to the Big East.
Gee, football causing a problem for the athletics department budget. Good thing that'll never be a problem at UMaine.
The 2019-2020 schedule is out on the website:
No real surprises that I can see (if you've been following the schedule being pieced together over the last couple months).
The Hockey East teams we play 3 times are PC, UVM, NU, & UCONN
Glad to see the US Nat. Development Team coming to Maine @ Orono...."BUT" looking at the Maine/Omaha series and they have it down as Friday @ Orono at 6pm and then the Saturday game is in Portland @ 12 Noon....that's kind of a crazy time after playing the night before in Orono...12 noon start is maybe for Omaha to Fly out after the game..? Still a quick turn around imo.
Gus gets $5.5 million per from Columbus.
Was going to wonder if he was Maine’s highest cap hit player ever, but thats still the GOAT Paul Kariya at $6 even. Bish got close one of his deals was $5.9.
The 3/6 game is supposed to be PC @ Maine. Maine and PC play 3x the next two seasons.
Maine is still scheduled to host UAA on October 11/12 but I wouldn't make travel plans for those games just yet.
Anything is possible but I really don't see how the university system can move forward with athletics, much less hockey programs that take the lion's share of the department budgets at both Anchorage and Fairbanks. The programs were almost dropped three years ago and were spared. Maybe Alaska hockey can find their own Terry Pegula to bail them out.
This will throw a monkey wrench into many teams scheduling. What a mess up there in AK.
