The Price Tag For Delaware

My colleague Steve Yanda has an interesting story in today's print edition about non-conference scheduling, particularly concerning scheduling opponents across the country. There are a handful of games early in the season that match teams from both sides of the country. Fresno State-Rutgers. Cal-Maryland. USC-Virginia. Georgia-Arizona State. USC-Ohio State, to name a few.

What I found interesting was that Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow said Maryland paid Delaware $300,000 for the game this season. I had not heard what the price tag was for that thrilling game.

Wow, 300k. Nice move, Yow.

So what are we paying Cal? A million?!?!

$300,000 seems like a lot of money for a game the Terps could have lost. Maybe they need to look for easier teams to beat at Byrd. On the other hand, maybe the Terps just need to improve.

We paid MTSU the same for coming to Byrd, and we got $100k to go down there. Why are you surprised by this? You reported these amounts previously.

Think of what MD used to get from FSU to swap an ACC home game...

In the article, Queen Clueless (Yow), says they wanted to get away from playing WVU for a couple years. What was wrong with playing them every year, it is a close school, you admit it was a rivalry, granted the Thursday night beatdowns the last couple years werent great, but maybe Yow should worry about the team on the field instead of trying to turn Byrd Stadium into FedEx Lite.

Fire Yow. Fire Fridge. Fire Gary.
