CCSU at Miami (FL) 9/25/2021

Post by J.J. »

Absolutely fantastic! The Central Connecticut State Blue Devils football team will play 5-time National Champions Miami (FL) Hurricanes on September 25, 2021.

Who would have thunk back in 1983 that CCSU would one-day play the Miami Hurricanes in football?

Kudos to Coach McCarthy and AD Pincince for making this happen.

And a $650,000 guarantee! I'm guessing no fan bus.

That would be a bus ride from hell! lol, I'll bet they have something for the charter plane. Let just hope they don't turn and burn back to Hartford. :lol:

Maybe I’ll go to Fla. early in 2021.

Maybe I’m being naive but I would think $1,000,000 would be more appropriate for this level of play. 🤔

Not really, FCS teams generally can't get more than $750k for a game. This is a great deal and exposure for CCSU.

Sky - maybe we crash at your place in South Beach? 8)

FBS team can demand a much higher payout. UConn is getting more than $1M for a few games, and will get $1.95 million from Ohio State for a game in 2025.

Thx for the input. I know UC is getting $2 mil for playing Clemson, hence my query about our amount.

Unfortunately, I’m on the Gulf side...hopefully home of the Super Bowl next year, about a 5 hour drive...but a 1.5 hour small plane ride. 😉
