    Is their any team in the NCAA that you would want the tiger football team to start a series with? I am sure we are going to get some A&M responses, but I am looking for just an out of the ordinary team that people would love to play. If it was me, I would love to see us play someone like Oregon or Maryland. Random I know, but I just think a PAC-10 or a ACC game would be a fun game. Plus if we added Maryland to our schedule, Barrington could explode against his home state team and make it a big deal...Random question, but just thought I would throw that out there...

    There are lots of choices - but it should be somewhere that a home and home series would give us some traction in recruiting. Maybe a West Coast team like Southern Cal or Oregon as you mentioned.

    Since I can't say A&M, I would probably go with Texas. I hate Texas, and I think we could have a pretty heated rivalry with them. As for a team from out west, maybe Colorado. Actually I would really like a series with Notre Dame. I liked it when we had that home and home series for two years a few years back.

    Notre Dame is on the schedule in 2008 and 2009 in a home, home.

    Really? That ought to be interesting.

    Some schools we might play that could be interesting:Oklahoma, Kansas St., Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Florida State, Texas. All are good or halfway decent football schools within reasonable traveling distances.

    I think one thing that needs to be taken into account is the distance to that school. Playing someone like Oregon or USC would be a killer for people that couldn't afford to fly out there (see students). But it would be really cool to play a PAC-10 or Big 10 team out of conference. Maybe Florida St, Ga Tech, Texas, or the Carolina schools would be good to play.

    In no particular order of preference I would like to see future home and home series with Texas, Oklahoma, Miami, Southern Cal, Ohio State, Florida State, Colorado, USLA and Michigan, Of course not all in the same years - the SEC schedule is pretty brutal

    Hmmmm? I really enjoyed the USC (Trojans) game in '79; that would be a good start! Also Ohio State in ~'88 or '89. I would like to see us play a traditional power, and not a western carolina type game. I was at the Indy game vs Notre Dame and enjoyed that too. Florida State was a fun game too. I remember our players and the criminoles got into a little ruckus. I sure would like to beat those three schools we lost to (USC, OSU, and FSU)
