Former Iggy Winner. I used to be somebody special

We did recently announce a single home game against Ohio for 9/10/2022 but Penn State just announced they were taking that game from us.I agree 100%. MAC schools are less likely to do one-off “buy” games and 2 for 1s anymore.
As mentioned before, I suspect we asked out of this commitment because we do not want to play home games in early September of 2022, as phase 2 of the Dome renovation is scheduled to be completed then. Every extra week thst can be stolen to complete phase 1 (in September of 2020) and phase 2 will be helpful to make the extremely ambitious completion dates SU is committed to.
As an aside, the Ohio schedule graphic linked above says the home game against Ohio will be played on Saturday, August 31st, 2024. The good news is AC should be installed in the Dome by then. The bsd news is thst if this date is real, it would appear there is no tentative plan to have s phase 3 for the renovation, st least not one scheduled to complete in 2024.
