    Q: Any luck on an opponent to fill out the 2008 football schedule yet?
    A: Nothing final yet. Here’s what is happening; schools with the bigger stadiums (70-75,000 plus) are going after schedules with seven home games (as a matter of fact, Nebraska has eight home games coming up one year; Notre Dame is going the six home, five road, one neutral route). They can pay considerably more than those of us in the 45-60,000 range to attract an opponent without having to guarantee a return game (in the $800,000-$1 million range, but we top out well below that; schools with 30,000-seat stadiums must really be struggling). That has taken many potential teams off the market. This is part of the reason that we are filling our schedules out to 2017 and beyond, to guarantee good non-conference slates. We have confirmed home-and-home series over the next decade with Arizona State, California, Florida State, LSU, Miami-Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oregon, Utah and Washington while completing the second half of one with Georgia. Who knows who will be good or not years from now (we scheduled a series with Wisconsin in 1988 when the Badgers were perennially 4-7, and wound up facing off against the Big 10 champions), but we believe the philosophy is sound.

    Soupy was drafted by the Lions in 1990. He was definitely not on the team in 1996.

    My guess is Dave was thinking of the pitch to J.J. Flannigan (I think) in the '89 game, as the game in '86 was in Lincoln, so I doubt Plati would've been kicking them out of the press box in that ****hole.

    '86 was in Boulder, and I believe '87 was as well. I was like 10 years old and don't remember why there would be back to back games in Boulder.

    yep, '86 and '87 were in boulder. if i remember correctly, the big 8 had done some juggeling of the sched's to make it so teams didnt have to play both kneebraska and OU on the road the same year and due to this, the buffs got the fuskers in boulder two years in a row. that is what i think the deal was but, im not 100% sure of that.
