TALLAHASSEE, Fla. | Florida A&M University Vice President and Director of Athletics Kortne Gosha released a statement in regards to the 2020 Orange Blossom Classic.
Hurricane season is from June 1st- November 30th in the Atlantic. With your rationale there should be NO games played ever in Miami! Someone please tell the Dolphins and “Hurricanes”....Great teams... great location... wrong date....we all know what happens around Labor Day in Florida every year....HURRICANE.
I maybe in the minority on this but I'm not sure I'd have eagerly signed up for this game. Conference schedule hasn't been sorted out yet. We don't know if this is a conference game or not or even who's home game. Financially how much are they making? If this game was in jackson there'd be 40k in the stands, that probably north of 300k for jsu. If it's at FAM then it's a sellout and they get paid handsomely. how much more above what they could have expected are promoters giving them? lastly, one of these schools is taking this off the season ticket package, off campus & moving it to miami.
I'm assuming you posted this and laughed about it because you can't answer any of the questions I have about it. Now, it doesn't affect me because I'm not going to Miami for that game, but it is a question that makes me wonder... have they finished the swac scheduling for 2021 for the entire conference? Is this a conference game or a non-conference game?JSU/FAMU got folks reaching for stuff.
Somebody post how many conference games are played annually that are “taken away from season ticket packages & played off campus in other cities”
Because @major095 is concerned.
He also doesn’t know who’s home game this is. He’s worried because JSU/FAMU & Charles didn’t seek his advice nor approval.
In a recent interview, Dr Charles McClelland said that he is in talks with ESPN about televising this game. If this happens then the SWAC will have 3 nationally televised games that weekend.
The other two are:
- MEAC /SWAC Challenge on ESPN 2
- BCFHOF Classic (GSU vs Tenn St) on NFL Network
My folks asked me the other day, "Are we going to Miami to see the Jackson State and FAMU game in September?"I am booked
