    Interesting. If this comes to fruition, I believe Tiffin being in an adjacent state gives us another In-Region game...which is good. What I find surprising is that we'd be willing to only have four home games for an entire season (presuming the Assumption statements from prior posts also come to pass). To be sure, today's environment throws a lot of things we would normally expect "out the window". Home games may wind up only being about a location, not necessarily an environment for this year. Still, I wonder if there might not be other "adjustments" we could see that would only impact this coming season...
    All GLIAC-GMAC games are in-region since the two conferences share a region in basketball.

    Davenport’s website seems to confirm what you have heard. Davenport and Tiffin were supposed to square off week one but Davenport has removed that game now. Totally agree with the though schedule part, Tiffin has a great offense returning. Good QB returning and RB and WR who are on NFL radars.

    I doubt it, since it's possible for schedules to be adjusted in-season.

    A few notes from a CSU Pueblo fan. First, I'm thrilled that the game is on (as of now anyway). Second is I wish we were playing our game with Texas A&M Kingsville since you are playing Week 1. But our other 9 games are RMAC games so Kingsville had to go. Third is when you are in Pueblo I recommend going to Gray's Coors Tavern and either getting a green chile slopper or a Johnny cheeseburger. See you in September (I hope).

We are planning to fly to Denver but don’t know yet what capacity each team will allow at the games.
    Well, we still have our flight booked for Denver. If they play there, I sure hope they'll have enough tix for us visitors. It's not like we'll number in the thousands there. I'm so torn on this schedule thing.. hard to separate what I'd like vs what's best for all. I would think opening vs CSU is tough vs Eboro, but I'll take anything. So much up in the air.

    OK, that's encouraging, but is the source reliable? I was hearing PSAC was only having conf. games. I don't recall where. Maybe a thread somewhere on this site?

    I suspect all options are open. Wayne may be an issue due to its location and some comments by their admin early on. Kind of strange for any to commit about anything just yet (soon though). For example Detroit is now doing pretty well today with respect to this beast. I'm thinking it will depend upon how much each admin values the intangible benefits of having games played. Money is a factor, but not like the Big Ten. That's why I speak of the intangible factors. And yes they do matter. And no, I won't get into a debate on value here. I'm just pointing out what Admins are likely going through.

    Of course, travel budgets could also come into play. Selfishly, the more games played the better. Here's hoping that they get played!
    I don’t know how hard it would be to rearrange schedules at this stage of the game.....particularly air travel. It makes sense that the non-conference and farthest would be the first to go. I suppose GVSU’s homecoming could be moved to another date or fill the “Assumption “ hole with a conference game. I agree that for most D2 schools money will be the biggest factor. Here’s hoping that there will be a football season on some kind even if it’s shortened.
