What is a Big XII school like KU doing visiting a division 1-AA "should be" MAC school like Toledo?  eyepopping  I would think that travel expenses alone would dictate that Lawrence would be the best revenue site for such a game. My school BYU is enroute back to Boston tomorrow for a Saturday showdown with the BC Eagles. Not sure how they are working that charter, I'm pretty sure it's a DL 738 or 752 since they have used them in the past.  box

BYU is going to be murdered by BC. Mark it down. I'll also laugh when BYU drops a couple more games this season, especially to UU and TCU. IMO, I think BYU is the team/program I despise most. The arrogance of Notre Dame, the tradition of Wake Forest.

It is a JetBlue A320...but going out of SLC this time instead of PVU like week one against Arizona (search "PVU" for the picture). We had this information on the SLCSpotters website early this morning  Wink

FS- UU is actually a nice place IMO. Having spent time up there recently, and partied a little up there, it isn't like its stone cold neighbor to the south. Didn't BYU just fire a prof for coming out against gay marriages??? The above post didn't say anything about Provo, Utah, or the school anyway, it was its team. As a Fresno State fan, I've dealt with BYU fans in the past, and having visited PVU, and the Campus, I've also shaped my opinion.
...and if you think my opinion that BYU is going to be smashed by BC is some sort of bias...think again. The ACC is 10x the league the MWC is. BYU will finish at the highest 3rd this year. Behind TCU, UU, and possibly behind CSU.

Any idea what Miami is taking to Louisville? I would imagine an AA 757.

It appears to be an even exchange...Toledo came to Kansas 2 years ago, it seems...I know at least one other Big 12 school has a similar exchange planned with a MAC school in the seasons to come...

When teams visit UC-Boulder, do they fly into DEN or some airport in Boulder? I'm wondering because the ASU football team plays UC-Boulder on Saturday.

First off, before USAFHummer gets you, it is CU and you don't have to say Boulder as it is assumed.

As for where teams fly into I would guess DEN as the Boulder and Longmont airports that are the closest are two small for a large jetliner (I think.) Perhaps they could land at JeffCo. I would doubt Centennial is used since DEN is closer to the school. It is only about a 30 minute or so drive from there.

I wouldn't quite say that. Toledo has always had success at filling the stands when big teams have come in. Purdue, Indiana..always had packed houses. With it being a Friday night, not sure how well this is going to work out but I bet it is worth it to bring that here.

On a side note. BGSU will be going to Florida International on a Miami Air 737-800.

Don't forget a few years back when Pitt came into Toledo ranked 8th and lost a great game.

Hey now, name calling isn't needed, even if it is true(I'm not a redneck hillbilly, I'm from Ohio) ,

if the Gators are on a DL 767 I will make sure to get out to TYS and see that thing come in. It's so nice to see something bigger than a MD88 come in.

GO VOLS!!!

Edit Florida is taking an AA737-800 to tys

Cincinnati is taking a bus to their thrashing in Columbus. It would take them far longer to go to CVG, get on a plane, fly to CMH, deplane, and take a bus to their hotel.

Besides, about 3:30 tomorrow afternoon, they're going to want as short a return trip as possible.

Correct, neither 1V5 nor LMO can handle anything more than a light bizjet at best...Jeffco can handle a mainline jet, but those movements are extremely rare (e.g. U2 came in on an AC A320 to BJC for their tour a year or two ago)...although the Buffs basketball team will use BJC on occasion for their charters...all inbound teams do use DEN...APA isn't all that much farther away (the two are in different directions from Boulder though), but DEN makes a little more sense to use...

Finally, Some guys who agree with me! I once posted on how a BYU basketball game was the most bizarre thing I ever went to, and how I felt incredibly out of place there, and FS jumped all over me claming all sorts of far out things, even me being racist. I can't help the school has the pious attitude that it does, and its much like a larger Bob Jones U. J.Mo, I agree, anyone that is playing BYU is by default my 3rd favorite team for the week...after Fresno State and Miami (FL.) of course. Are you a Fresno State fan J.mo?
