According to Wildhack, that's when the Dome Roof comes down for renovations and the heavy work begins.

We gonna be homeless for part of next season. I hope it's a mild Winter. :oops:

Will be interesting to see where we play our home games and how many we can squeeze in at the dome before the construction starts.

First 3 weeks of the season. Week 4 we're at UVA (unless they move all the conference games to later in the season).

CNS is nice, but only holds 5,000. Just as long as current season ticket holders get priority. ;)

It is possible to fit in four games in February if others would be so kind to accomodate.

Hope AD is working on that.

You know, they keep saying that, but back in the "Old ACC", The Twerps would play dook as early in March as we two play now. Granted our game has is scheduling roots as an OOC game, but there are years of precedent for leaving as it is now if they so choose.

As an aside, we always started the ACC schedule the latest with playing the three others right in a row before the tournament.

From what the coaches were saying last year, I'm guessing the Albany game will be away in 2020. Back in 1979 when the dome was being built the football team got creative and scheduled home game in places like Orchard Park, Cornell and the Meadowlands - not a bad idea to showcase your product in different parts of the state.

I suspect they'll play a lot of local away games (Colgate, Hobart, Bingo, and maybe a Siena or Canisius) or some games in the soccer stadium (or OCC?). One bright spot - could be a reason to get them to ease up on the strength of schedule.

I think your spot on about Albany, there has been a rumbling about that for about a year now. Interesting I think they may try to front load some home games next year like Hobart and play them early with say Colgate Army and one other.

Any chance they could/would move games to Einsley Center if weather was bad? Obviously would be bad for fans trying to attend the game, but seems like a lot of schools are playing early season games indoors in facilities that either don't allow for TV or don't allow for fans (believe Penn State did this just last week).

No. Not coded to have fans in the building. Ensley is not currently possible

Our prime "snow is still on the ground" alternate rug is our field hockey stadium which has stands. I could swear we've played SU there a time or two; I know we've played Cornell and Drexel there. Does SU have something similar?

A couple of years ago, we had to play ND in their IPF because it was hazardously cold outside. Few, if any fans, there as well.

We have a field hockey stadium with really hard turf, and a soccer stadium with grass.

Both have small seating capacities.

Umm, the Meadowlands are not in the state. Just saying.

I suspect any pretty good Opp that SU played at cornell would draw a pretty good crowd, its not that far for SU to travel and the Ithaca locals are sill pretty loyal to SU when not playing Cornell.
