As the sun sets on the Notre Dame rivalry, there's been a lot of talk as to which powerhouse program could potentially replace the Irish on a consistent basis. Brandon has already scheduled a "home and home" series with Arkansas in 2018/19 :(http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/110612aaa.html
You have to wonder if Brandon is looking squarely at the SEC for something long-term, or if he plans on filling the gap on a yearly basis with the most compelling match-up available. And then there's the Texas factor, which many of us believe has always been the ultimate goal for the B1G. Whatever the strategy is, I have to believe that Brandon has a gameplan for adding credibility to our schedule outside of B1G play.
Or, is it the better move to fill the void with mid-level opponents in the hopes of an unblemished B1G run?
