Help our oldest, most bitter rival, Purdon't with 2011 schedule opening!

(Ed. Note: Remember, don't just copy and paste entire articles here.  Post a link and an excerpt.)

As reported by Adam Rittenberg over on ESPN (below), our good friends most hated/ ancient rival, Purdue was dumped by Kent State for their 2011 football opener 09/03/2011 for a more challenging (Read: bigger payout) opponent down in Tuscaloosa.

I think, as friends of the Pants, that it is our duty to help the Purdue AD (insert name) with his scheduling headache.

As of now, I"m advocating trying to pay off South Alabama for the now, Open date on the Boiler schedule.

2011 South Alabama schedule

I will submit a list of all qualified candidates to the Purdue athletic office via Fax on or before 11/05/2010. Thanks again for helping Boiler Pete.

Vote after the jump....

Kent State voided its contract to face Purdue on Sept. 3, 2011. Instead, the Golden Flashes will travel to Alabama that day.

Kent State paid Purdue its guarantee of $425,000 to get out of the contract.

It will be interesting to see who's available for Purdue, which has nonconference games at Rice (Sept. 10), at home against Southeast Missouri State (Sept. 17) and at home against Notre Dame (Oct. 1). The Boilers ideally want a seventh home game, but their options could be limited.
