Big East, makes sense, sort of. Rutgers could be a pretty fun trip if you like NYC.
http://www.nj.com/rutgersfootball/index.ssf/2012/02/rutgers_could_play_football_ho.htmlIn addition, both people said, Rutgers is close to finalizing a home-and-home deal with Arkansas, starting this fall. Rutgers would play at Arkansas this year, with the Razorbacks coming to Rutgers Stadium in 2013, becoming the first SEC team to play in Piscataway.The home-and-home contingency plans with Syracuse, as well as Rutgers' game with Arkansas, could fall through if Boise State is fast-tracked into the Big East, however. That is still considered a long shot because of the timing, with Boise expected to play one more season in the Mountain West.
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.
Perhaps, but it's entirely plausible (to me), that LSU, Bama, and Arkansas could go 11-1 with each only losing to each other. That means SoS will be a factor whether we like it or not. That and timing, I suppose. Losing to Bama early is bad, but not nearly as bad as losing to LSU late.
As exciting as a big game in a large city sounds I'd much rather play someone like Northwestern than Rutgers for a couple of reasons1. I live about 15 minutes away from Evanston2. College football is much bigger in the midwest (75% of NYC doesn't know where Rutgers is)3. I'd much rather recruit the midwest although competition is tougher4. NU is a much better opponent and Evanston is hella easy to get to compared to Piscataway for Hog fansBut since NU is not even a possibility I will no find a screen door and fist myself threve times.
Once upon a time, big fat titties, and they all lived happily ever after. The End

I don't know why people always do this. One report comes out, and then all the local news folks started writing blogs referencing that report and suddenly everything thinks these are more sources. All this link says is that a NJ news source reported this, which we already knew. You might as well post a link to this thread and call it another source, since it also contains the report from NJ.

When's the last time we played somewhere up north? I know we've played all over Texas and the rest of the south, but haven't all the yankee teams we've played come to us or played us in a bowl?
This is a great trivia question. Not only do we not play Yankee teams up north, we rarely play them anywhere, other than bowls.We played Northwestern and Navy in Little Rock in the late 70's/early 80's.We may not have played a game that far north since the Taft Administration. EDIT: I see we lost at Fordham in 1940. We may not have traveled farther north than St. Louis since then.
