Kevin White ND will play at least 3 BE games per year in football.He calls this an agreement.Add Army and Navy thats at least 5 games per year.THIS IS NO CONSPIRACY,THIS IS REAL.No more Marshal's,Temple,ECU,Memphis etc.
TS2, I didn't read this to be a done deal with the Big East Teams and saw no mention of Army in the article. The article is located at http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/football/independent1a/2005-02-14-notre-dame-schedule_x.htm
White said an agreement to play at least three Big East teams a season would let the Irish play annually at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. They have played there 11 times, including a 27-9 win against Navy in 2004.
I agree that it would be desireable for ND to play in the Meadowlands. There is another statement in that article that leads me to believe nothing is final and they are fishing for the best offer.
For a 12th game each year, athletics director Kevin White said, the school is considering cities such as Chicago, Orlando, Jacksonville, New Orleans and Dallas. The Irish would negotiate terms that would include games, perhaps in prime time, in its agreement with NBC.
