Scheduling better games
How hard would it be to put Miami on the schedule on a routine basis or setting up something like we did against Michigan in 2017 to open the season?

Twit-idiots seem to think this is impossible because we are giving up a home game and money. They seem to forget we get TV money as well.

re: Scheduling better games
Will usually only see us do this in neutral games where both of the teams are paid like a bowl game.

It'll be very rare for us to do a home and home, because we usually lose money because we lose a game.

Needs to be a 2 for 1 like with USF or a neutral game. I think home and homes would be fun because its more reason for me to go visit a different campus, but the neutral games are fun too.

Probably not hard in the grand scheme of things, but when you play FSU, UGA, and LSU every year, you don't have to.

We need to play USC out in Las Vegas once that's built

No one else in the SEC plays 2 P5 OOC every year so why should we be expected to?

It doesn't have to be a ton, but once in a blue moon. I'm cool with doing it.

I'd rather play teams like USC, Texas, OU, etc. rather than Miami though (they have nothing to offer). They can come up to MN in september to TCF while I'm here and they sell beer at the stadium

100% agree. Shouldn’t make our schedule tougher than necessary. I’d guess it’s been quite a few years since most schools in the SEC have had multiple P5 schools on the schedule.
