    I figured we needed to get this up. Keep in mind that The Dude cannot guarantee he will honor any or all of these requests. These are simply that: Requests.

    Loaf31 Would you like to start a 2 year deal to play Alabama in a home/away series?

    Are we still doing the kickoff classic?

    Also, in regards to schedules - I try to set guys up to play reasonable non-con schedules against regional opponents, but most can expect at least one real challenge in the non-con schedule, especially if your conference schedule steers you away from users. I typically shoot for three user games a year (four if you make your conference's championship game) but I sometimes back off that by a game if a team wasn't involved in a title race the year before, or if a new coach took a tough team to win with. It's a case-by-case thing, and I con't promise much, but I try to level it out the best I can. I like to take my time and really work on every schedule.

    I was thinking this also. What better way to get fed to the wolves than a great rivalry game

    The Kickoff Classic might not be necessary this year since I am leaving for a 4 star program. But it is your call.

    I'd also like Pitt, WVU, or Miami if possible

    Washington State is willing to play anybody, anywhere! home-and-home deals would be good though.

  8. Well since we already have a home and home in The Pride, biggcoug65 you wanna set up a home and home with Texas? I would travel the first year then you guys can come down to Austin the next. Also seeing how Notre Dame and Texas have scheduled some home and home in the future in real life I wouldn't mind getting that going also The Dude

    Notre Dame for sure...

    Will have O$U already... Maybe PSU?

    So I'm open... biggcoug65 want to get in on this? I'll take anyone really... As long as The Dude is on my schedule, that's all that matters.

    With mike moving to USC, I'll have 2 yearly rivalries locked in. I think I'm going to alternate MSU and Purdue rather than play them every year - I think the B1G is going to start moving away from ND in real life to put pressure on them to join, so I'm going to start that here.

    No clue who my third will be against. Probably not the B1G. That's about all I know for sure. We'll just have to see how it shakes out.

    We can do that. It'll depend on the schedules and who plays who in the conference schedule, but I'll see if I can make it happen. I can't remember the last time we played.

    No... Not that I can recall ever... Maybe in another league or another land far, far away, but not here.

    Unless we add someone to the league, you'll probably face at least 2 tough non-con user games, I'm guessing.
