Sorry if I stepped on toes, I know negotiating is tough. It's just frustrating that just when it looks like we've gotten rid of our FCS opponents, boom!, their back. Is not strength of schedule a big, if not the biggest, reason given for one team making the playoff or NY6 bowl and others not? If that's true, and I'm not saying it is, it's just what I hear the pundits say come November, why would we schedule an FCS team that will further weaken our chances? I know we need a place to play BB, but I, personally, would pay more cash to someone else so as not to be forced to hurt another program. Does anyone have inside scoop on the process for finding a BB venue? Did we talk to Rice? HBU?, HISD?
