    I agree with the bolded statement. I would even go so far as to say it's below the floor we should be getting for a guarantee game.

    I don't see how you can say this. The two were clearly negotiated together. We seem to have a pretty easy time getting money games for around a million dollars. What we are not good at is getting home and homes.
    If they offered us the following scenario's which would you choose:
    1.5 million for a 1 and done road game
    1.1 million for a money game plus a home and home agreement.

    That may not be a bad deal. As I said, we don't seem to have trouble finding money games. We do seem to struggle to find home and homes. It's not ideal, but it might not be a terrible deal. The bigger problem is our home game is the final game of the series giving them an easy out if they decide to buy us out. If the buyout of that last game is less than 1 million it's probably a really bad deal. I suspect that it's more around the 300k range as others have suggested.

    "We" are not negotiating. This is not about Tech. It's about our inept AD who has NEVER put together a good deal for his #everloyalbe.

    Look at what USM is getting for road games with P5s. We are not even close.

    1.1 is a bad deal for us even if we have a guarantee of a game in Ruston, which we obviously don't or our AD would have been crowing about it. He is too stupid to even ask for a good deal.

    I dont expect 1.6 mil from NCState, especially if they were throwing in a home-home. They seem to live up to their home-home agreements well enough, they've played plenty G5s away the past few years.

    Yeah, just trust them. No need to put anything in a contract. Didn't we get close to $1.5 when we played them in 2013?

    Remember Jim Oakes said he could get a home and home with Kansas all day long - but he would rather have the money game and buy an FCS or lower level FBS because he NETTED a lot more money in the end...

    In reality - will more people show up in JAS for NCSt than they do for Southern, NWST, Grambling, NLU or ULLLLLLL? probably not

    So it makes better $EN$E financially to buy the first three and schedule home and homes with the second two and get the MOST for a guarantee with the P5's

    The one school we moved out of JAS that made no sense to me was BYU - I actually think they would of been a very good draw due to their mini-ND like following

    Dwayne - If we are paying Southern $350,000 to pay in Ruston, what do you think Tech will net at the end of the day for that game?

    Good post. You described this scenario exactly how I see it. I have no problem with the deal except for the fact that LA Tech doesn't get the home game until game 3. If that buyout is less than $1M and NC State chooses to buy the game out, then it's a bad deal.

    Our AD would be bragging about the buyout if he knew how to negotiate one. It's likely well under $500K.
