Been pondering on this topic the last few days and seeing BU playing some of the cupcakes (which I agree that you need) makes me think about possible alternatives. I like the practice of playing some of the schools in the state, so I see no reason to not explore renewing the Evansville series, for example. It might be nice to play Valpo again, too. Norte Dame would be the prize, but they won’t come to Hinkle, right? One other regional school that might be worth looking at is Buffalo; their star is rising and it would be a challenging game. Does Mack hate us enough that he wouldn’t do a home and home with Louisville? If we wanna look further, what do you think of the following: Gonzaga, Nevada, one of the Arizona schools, St. Mary’s, Syracuse, Stephen F Austin, Memphis, or Michigan. Some of these could be neutral site games. For less challenging foes, Northwestern State (because I used to work there), former Horizon League foes, SMU, Rice, Rutgers, Penn State. Just a conversation starter. . .
