Here's an updated list, per the American Football Coaches Association, of FBS and FCS schools with an open date and in need of an opponent in 2010. Whom would y'all like to see slotted into Ball State's place for Iowa? And what's the realistic option?
(note: Minnesota and Pittsburgh have that date open as well, but since we already play them in 2010...)
Colorado State University
2010: 1 home/1 away, 9/11, 9/25, 10/2
University of North Texas
2010: (2 home - 1 away) 9/11, 9/18, 9/25
2010: 9/11, 9/18, 9/25 two home or one home/one away
University of California, Davis
2010: Sept 25, Oct 16
University of South Dakota
2010: Sept. 18, Sept. 25, Nov. 20
University of North Dakota
2010 - Sept. 25, Oct. 16, Nov. 13, Nov. 20 - Need 2 home and 1 away - Will consider both home and home as well as cash guarantees.
Colorado State and North Texas would be a great replacement in my opinion. Plus the Hayden Fry/North Texas connection is juicy.
But realistically, this looks like a UND game.
