Starting rumors: Boise St for the 2011 Opener?

Summarized: The Boise State AD is looking for a big-name, big-money non-conference game for their remaining open date in 2011 (Sept 3). In a fan poll on this blog, Michigan is current leader, ahead of teams like Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, and Nebraska. I realize fan polls mean little (read: nothing), but still.

Totally crazy? Maybe. The AD's willingness to schedule UConn this year may signal that we could take on a second non-creampuff in the future. I'm confidant (...ok, hoping) we'll contend for the Big Ten Title in 2011, so it probably wouldn't be a mismatch.

Should it happen we would open the season with Boise State, following it up with ND at night a week later. Yes, please.

If this sounds awful, who would you like to see instead?
