FSU is available this fall.  WVU dropped their game with the Noles.

We already have a game scheduled on the 8th. Not sure I'd want to play back to back top 5 teams anyway.

considering the noles are a top 20 team that will be over-ranked by 15 spots, I'd love to play them, nice warm-up for bama and a win will impress the aMm out of...everyone not from arkansas.

Exactly. FSU is the national champions of preseason polling.

I don't care, who we schedule,  as long as it makes sense from a competition and/or recruiting basis.   We don't need another lame opponent.

Beat Bama and LSU and nobody will give a aMm if it's a lame opponent or not. A tough schedule doesn't mean squat if you suffer 2 losses. The key is having a 0 or 1 in the L column.

I say no thanks, especially if it doesn't help us with recruiting. These types of games are scheduled years in advance for a reason. If fsu were to agree to fill in for ATM in the southwest classic...I might would feel different.

I do agree we need a harder noncon schedule each year to better prep for Bama, but there again we have them at home and almost beat what will be a similar type of Bama in 2010. We don't want to start up having to go to fsu and then to t town...that would be brutal IMO.

We played A$M plus three chumps for n/c games, lost twice, and still finished #5 in the country.  We bea LSU, we probably finish #2.  We don't have a strength of schedule problem.

If Long wants a "name" n/c game, he can quit ducking texas.

I know this is your soap box topic so I can understand they myopia but it's still interesting that you don't consider that Texas may be the ones ducking us.  YOu do know that it takes two teams to schedule a game?

Nebraska has stAte at home the week before our mutual open date in september.  Call me skeptical that long would agree to a sloppy 2nds with Nebraska after they play H&S the week before.  It really opens the comparisons & argument for playing them(stAte).

Thank you.  I didn't think that it was difficult to figure out that AState is playing these games for the money like all Sun Belt teams do, not because they are so much braver than Arkansas in facing tough competitition.

Some of ya'll have turned into real dumbshits the last week or so.

some teams that have the mutual early date open with us include;

boston college
clemson - plays auburn 1st week
Ga tech
Miami (fl)

cincinnati
rutgers
houston
Pitt

nebraska (plays stAte the week before)

Oklahoma
Okie lite
iowa state
K state
texas tech

Air Force
hawaii
fresno state
nevada
UNLV


those to start with.  possible decent matchups.  nothing that is earth shattering.

these are all 9/22 open dates.  If I were a betting man, to me it would be more advantageous to play this week & be off on the other open date since it's close to middle of the football season. 

10/20 is much better to be off.  feel free to discuss in this dead ass period now for football & sports.

I wouldn't mind beating the aMm out of Rutgers. They tend be overly-covered by the East Coast media every year. It could help with exposure.

I would also like to see us stay away from Ga Tech. Their option offense scares me little bit, especially until I see how our linebacking corps will be next year.

BTW, nice efforting.

I'm assuming that these teams will not schedule anything else until they know the outcome of the WV-Big East lawsuits.

Correct. Prolly will change in the next week or so. Schedules are set to come out soon.

We should bring in Kansas St.  I don't like having a losing record to them -- even if it does stretch back to the McKinley administration.

nebraska (plays stAte the week before)


Short of playing and losing to a total cream-puff or FCS school that week, I'm not sure I care all that much who we play.  It would be nice to schedule and beat a higher profile school for the extra exposure, but it isn't critical.  That will come with wins and with Knile and/or Tyler kicking ass and getting Heisman hype.  But I have to admit that the compare and contrast exercise would be hilarious if we played Nebraska that week, just for shits and giggles. 

I'm with Pale, though.  Having a losing record to Kansas State is unacceptable.  Any chance they make a BCS bowl this year, so we can start squaring that away?  chortle.

Nebraska was the first team I thought of when we had this problem.  Yes it opens up the howling aMm but not if we beat them by 21 and they beat sTate by 21.

Clemson might be a decent matchup but don't want them if they are projected top 10.

Miami would be a great matchup and maybe we could get them back for that drubbing in the 80's.

Pitt has Long ties doesn't it?

Oklahoma would be a great win but I don't want anything to do with Okie light.

Texas Tech might be a good replacement for aTm.

Air force might be a great matchup.  I would love to see one of the service academies come to F'ville.

Might as well scratch Clemson off that list. They're already playing 2 SEC teams next season, unless they want to get reacquainted with their SEC roots when we expand to 16 teams.  :hmmm:
