with playing cupcake teams in Tiger Stadium(ULL,Citadel,Utah State,Western Carolina) Teams like USC and Notre Dame are not afraid to schedule the big boys every year and look what happens to them. They play the best and still go to big name bowl games. Playing one cupcake team in a year is ok but we have 3 next year. ULM and Louisiana Tech, come on. Then we have Arizona. Hey I will give Skip this , at least the team is from a major conference(Pac 10). Is Arizona the best we could do for a big name team. And we still don't know who the opponent is in place of Marshall. We should play more non conference teams like VT last year. I, like many Tiger fans are sick of paying money to go to Tiger Stadium to see cupcake games. When you are up 48-0 in the 4th quarter and fans start to leave because the game is a blow out, now that is bad. I am not saying play all top notch teams and starting the season 0-3 but at least play 2 nationally recognized football teams in a season. Screw the 7 home games stuff if it hindering us from playing the best. Most good teams will only play a series if it is home and home. I would not mind making road trips to non conference games. Hell it would be cool to take good to some of the other top football stadiums in the country(Rose Bowl,Kyle Field,Michigan Stadium.) I hope something can get done quickly because I am starting to think they we are chicken and are afraid to step up into the big leagues.
