    The selection committee approach is going to bring back the big intersectional games. The best way to impress people who don't follow you much is to get the chance to let them do it.

    I thought we would try and toughen our schedule OOC. Guess not.

    Michigan = Akron :wink:

    I hope it's a "neutral site" in the state of Florida just to piss off everyone that harps on us not playing OOC games outside the state of Florida.

    I've been waiting 20 years for us to play intersectional opponents again. Hell, I'd have dropped sow as an annual opponent back in the early 90's in order to play intersectional opponents instead.

    Will be interesting.

    Can't help but feel Michigan has more to gain from it looking at the rest of their dismal schedule but that's just the way it is!

    How many more NCs would F$U have if we didn't play them in the regular season? Then again, how many would we have...

    Maybe no more as we had Tennessee and the SEC champ game.

    I'd rather play home-and-home, but I'll take what I can get. Still bummed about cancelling the home-and-homes with Michigan State and Washington.
