Is the 3rd time they have done this? Time to tell them to fuckoff. An SEC team (not Missouri) would be much more exciting anyway.

I'd be very interested to read the contract that was signed. I wouldn't be surprised if the contract stipulated:
  • that Ohio State was free to push back the one-and-one as much as they want provided the game was not scheduled in the next couple of seasons AND
  • (most importantly) Ohio State is free to cut a check to Boston College and BUY their way out of the game in Boston for any reason

BC is just going to bend over and continue to be treated like the battered wife here. And why? Ohio State has (what?) 5% of ALL of the collective college football clout/power all to themselves? Maybe more? They probably have more clout/power than Notre Dame and MUCH more clout/power than Clemson. And its probably only Texas, LSU, and Alabama that each (individually) have more clout/power than Ohio State. I don't think there is any chance that the Buckeyes would ever actually play Boston College at Alumni. It would have to be Foxboro (the way it was for Alabama in the 1980s) or New Jersey (the way it was in 1995.) If BC (on principle) refuses to move the game away from the 44,500 seat Alumni as stipulated in the contract, the Buckeyes will likely just cut BC a fuck-you-we-are-out check the day after BC plays in Columbus.


I just read the contract and there is no such thing.


Excellent!

I received the contract via FOIA request. Original contract was signed in 2012 by Eric Ziady. GDF's name was crossed out. There is a $200k penalty for cancellation.

If that is true, then no way the Buckeyes play at Alumni. They have so much money, they don't care about $200K. They'll cut a check.

What happens with the Kansas and Purdue games - do they get rescheduled?

I have to think that either UMass or UConn (or both) drop their football programs within the next couple of years.

As none of our OOC opponents for 2023 are Power-5 schools (NIU, HC, @ Army, UConn), something has to change there.

That 2023 schedule tells me BC is aiming at one of those marquee games in Charlotte or Atlanta that year.

In '21 you're going to get the annual BC/VT Labor Day Weekend opener at Alumni.
