    Hogs and Irish schedule home and home for 2020.

    Now, while you can debate how "historic" of a meeting these games will be, it's not just cool to see Notre Dame scheduling SEC opponents when it already has to play so many ACC foes, it's that these games are scheduled to be played on campus.

    More remarkable than on campus games is that both teams will have new Head Coaches by 2020.

    Do you think Stoops would go to Hawgville? Man, that is not just a step down ~ it is two steps down.

    I don't like Notre Dame but I have to give them credit for not dipping into the FCS for cupcakes. They stay with the FBS teams.

    I just did some poking around and USC, UCLA, Oklahoma and Texas have not played FCS in ten years. Ohio St, Michigan and Penn St have not played FCS in three years. Maybe this is a trend headed our way.

    ND will buy out of the return game in Fayetteville. That game will never be played. They would have preferred to have played Arkansas in one of their off site home game "Shamrock Series" games. Whereby they control ALL of the tickets and NBC has the TV rights. Ironically, and comically, they learned the hard way when they began that series that they could not do that in the SEC and Big 12 footprints. They booked stadiums in those footprints from 2009-2013 and in 2016 thinking they could do that and then learned that the SEC and Big 12 TV contracts would not allow that.

    They had San Antonio booked in 2009, Orlando in 2010 and 2011. New Orleans in 2012, and Arlington in 2013 and 2016. In 2009 they wound up playing Washington State in San Antonio . They got out of the Orlando bookings because the Citrus Bowl had not made the contractually required improvements. They bought out of the New Orleans booking when the scheduled game with Baylor didn't get off the ground. They wound up playing Arizona State in Arlington in 2013 and Army in Arlington in 2016.

    I suspect they thought they could schedule aTm in San Antonio in 2009. Bama and UF in Orlando in 2010 and 2011. LSU in New Orleans in 2012. And Texas and OU in Arlington in 2013 and 2016. Shamrock Series is a good name for it because it is a sham.

    If allowed, Arkansas most likely would have been booked in Little Rock. And everyone would have thought it was an off site home game for Arkansas. Just as everyone thought with the game at Fenway Park with Boston College in 2015. BC off site home game. Right? Nope! ND off site home game. And just as everyone thought with the Maryland game in Landover in 2012. Maryland off site home game. Right? Nope! ND off site home game.
