I have look but all I find was last year? So I thinking some of you will be able to tell me! The ones that keep up with this and the ones that go to the A-Day game?

Don't think they have announced anything yet. Last year was closer to the end of January.

4-11 or 4-18...Easter Sunday is 4-12 so perhaps they will skip that weekend and go with 4-18

Not announced but most likely April 18. As mentioned, Easter is April 12. NFL Draft is April 23-25. Dead Week on campus begins April 20 and exams start April 27.

A -day will be a little more difficult to navigate this year because of all of the construction. Another reason I would think that they would push it as late as possible. With the remodel taking place, it will be an extremely fluid situation this year with seating/parking/concessions. I'm sure there will be sections they can not use during the game this year. I wonder if the press box will already be moved.

Aday will be a mess. Even though it was assured to be taking place on time and at BD.... the construction will complicate it a bit..... as @rammerjammer notes.
A lot of things have to work out...weather...no hidden surprises...work crews.....we shall see what happens ...dont be surprised if there isnt some surprises... and it hasto be safe for fans to be around stadium...

Remember that the game is only one part of A Day. Captains are enshrined at Denny Chimes. Other athletic teams have games. Football alumni have a flag game. Sure, you could do these things on another day, but having the crowd there ensures good attendance.

BTW, has A Day ever been at Legion Field or anyplace other than BDS?
