    Air Force doesn't go to Hawaii, but they also have the 19th off. My thought would be to play them that weekend, and give some amount of the proceeds from the game----10% as a hypothetical number, to the flood victims. They'd make sense, because areas around the Springs got pounded with rain. They'd have to get a waiver from the NCAA, but I doubt the NCAA would get in the way if a chunk of the money were going to the flood victims. They also have a home game the week before, and another one (Notre Dame) the week after. I think you could get a pretty good crowd for this, and more than make up any deficit that would come from not playing at all. Thoughts?

    AFA does not wish to play us due to a decades long grudge.

    Good idea, but will not happen. AFA has no desire what so ever to play us in football

    There is no way the NCAA grants that waiver.
