Looks like this is a bust, at least for this year. Not even anything in the Dispatch. Teams should start looking for new opponents or plan on an open date. With that schedule, chances are good that an open date would be better than playing them.

I'm not sure which is more shocking; that COF was able to put together such a strong schedule on not much more than a wing and a prayer, or that so many of the top teams in the State and beyond put them on their schedules. If everything worked exactly according to plan, this was going to be an under-manned, under-developed football team that was going to get crushed by its schedule. As it is, it doesn't seem possible that they will even field a team, much less a competitive one, at least this year.

Probably more of an indication of how difficult it is for the top teams to fill out a schedule.

Total agreement, it's simply just hard for those teams to find others to pay, of course they would jump at a chance for an in-state opponent.

Open date is not an option for Wayne. 80% of their home seating section is season tickets and those tickets have already been sold.

it is just speculation above. I'd guess your AD has a better handle on the COF situation than we do

I'm just going off of that post stating COF is a bust. Thank you Olentangy Liberty for bailing out and not making the return trip to Wayne in week 2 forcing the Warriors to pick up a team in the last moments in COF. Like others for some reason teams just do not want to play us but I do not understand why as Wayne will be down this year and likely a .500 team. This should of been the year that some teams would of wanted Wayne....

Good luck finding a team this late. May be able to bring a team in from Canada but that's pretty expensive. That and they aren't the most reliable. Two just pulled out on Centerville and Alter. The only OHSAA schools showing a week 2 opening is a D VII school out of Columbus.

North Allegheny PA had them booked for week 1 as part of their kickoff classic thing they've done the past few years. There are some WPIAL schools still opting for a scrimmage that week instead of playing the extra regular season game they might convince to take them on. But, this doesn't look good with COF being a joke a best.

I see your point, but from your other posts, you can't say Wayne hadn't tried to fill out its schedule! One team bailed, and the other sort of never got off the ground. But from what I understand of the Wayne faithful, while they may not be thrilled about an open date, if it comes down to it, most will understand that Wayne tried and view it as a contribution to the program rather than making any demand for a refund.

Steubenville had a shortened home season one year and gave everyone a road ticket to the Beaver Local game instead of refunding the money.

Just a few weeks until practices begin. Any news about the existence of said school?

How exactly does a start-up school manage to schedule all those great teams before they even get the keys to the building. I saw that St Ignatius was on their schedule. You meaning to tell me Iggy's, of all people, scheduled a pop-up school just on goodwill? No background or anything?

First, there is absolutely no way they have $400 million in the bank. Or even on credit. Not a chance.

Second, OD does not accredit schools, they simply charter them. And a school cannot receive a charter until it has been in operation at least two years and meet certain standards. A school can function without a charter, however.

If you dont believe me, and I can see that you dont, call the number, check the website or better yet drive over to the address. This. School. Does. Not. Exist.

They gotcha!

Interestingly, on Twitter, two of the alleged new coaches still claim to have positions with COF:

So, he's "Director of Recruiting"? Has he been successful? Anyone know anyone who is going there? All I've seen are uniform designs.

Whatever their status, I would assume they're going to suffer some epic curb stompings this season.

Thatís correct, but they arenít accredited either. The organization that accredits schools has nothing on them. Can check for yourself http://www.advanc-ed.org/

Only two of the football teams followers list COF as their school.

Did that link work for you guys? I clicked on it (on my phone maybe mobile is different than desktop) and it was literally gibberish for most of the pages. For example in the about us...
