Syracuse University recently sent a letter to the University of Wyoming notifying the Cowboys that the Orange will not be returning the game they agreed to as part of a home and home series. This series was announced in late 2005 or early 2006 and filled the 2006 hole in the Orange schedule very nicely. The cancellation looks fishy! So the questions to consider is, "Did Syracuse ever intend on attending the return game?" or is this a case where the $200,000 buy out that both parties agreed to low enough to as to tempt Syracuse.
One's reputation is valuable asset that will at times get you the benefit of the doubt. An action like this while within the letter of the contract may end up costing you in the end. The next mid-major might want to make that buyout amount high enough to help Syracuse from being tempted or having such dishonest intent.
