Big East, makes sense, sort of.  Rutgers could be a pretty fun trip if you like NYC.

I might be going there for grad school this fall. If so, seeing the hogs there in '13 would be tits.

In 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.

Called that play brotha :shocker:

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.
Are you even reading what snorts is writing? He is talking about 12-0 not 11-1. At 12-0 hes right you beat bama you beat lsu. At 12-0 sos doesnt mean aMm.

Rutgers sounds good.  Opens up new recruiting area and would be a great road trip.

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 reasons

1.  I live about 15 minutes away from Evanston
2.  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 tougher
4.  NU is a much better opponent and Evanston is hella easy to get to compared to Piscataway for Hog fans

But since NU is not even a possibility I will no find a screen door and fist myself threve times.

Seems like some stud defensive have come out of that area the last few years. I think Florida's gotten a couple.

Hog Trough vs Jersey Shore... I like it.

Either way, if Hog fans travel, somebody is gonna get their ass beat.

This is going to be a badass road trip.  I love Manhattan.  Stay in Times Square and take a train over to the game.  I'm amped even though it is 2 years away.

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.

I'm not booking my trip until Duckman confirms we're playing them.
I'm asking you as fans, don't give up on those players, don't give up on us, it's our program, it's the state of Alabama program...it's not one individuals program, so hang in there...

 Fordham in New York (1940)  Lost 7-27
