The Athletic Association announced today that Idaho State will visit Athens on November 6, 2010, rounding out the 2010 schedule.
The Big Sky Conference Bengals were 1-11 in 2008 and have started 2009 0-4, so no one is going to really laud us for amping up our out of conference schedule with this announcement. That being said, the 2010 nonconference slate already included a trip to play Colorado to go with the season ending home match with Georgia Tech and a home opener against Louisiana-Lafayette. After playing Oklahoma State and Arizona State this season I think we've earned the right to coast for a season by merely playing our traditional ACC rival and a road game against a Big XII opponent.
Plus the matchup comes after the Cocktail Party in Jacksonville and before our November 13th road date with Auburn. If we're going to play a cupcake that's the optimum scenario for it. I think this is good, pragmatic scheduling by Damon and company.
Until tomorrow . . .
