    I feel like that has been always known? Why else would they switch the time of year for the home and home? What other rivalry does that ?

    You are a USC fan if you say it's a smart move fine. But the fact is they won't play in South Bend when there is a greater chance of snow.
    And you are correct. It is a smart move. Now, if Mike Bohn would make another smart move, and get rid of Gomer.

    I think Helton should stay for another 20 years.

    I am assuming you live in Kentucky, as I do. People around here just don't know how bad Helton is. I could go on about him, but, I don't have enough time to give you the full scope. All I will say is, with the 4th most talented roster in the NATION the last two years, he has went 13-12 with one of those seasons 5-7. I couldn't imagine Saban or Dabo or Kirby doing that. Heck, Couldn't imagine PJ Fleck doing that, with that much talent. SMH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was saying it in jest as a Notre Dame fan.

    Also warm weather attracts more fans to travel. Now I'm much more on your side of the argument during the regular season when warm weather teams refuse to schedule games on the road during cold weather season. Perfect example USC vs Notre Dame.
    I watched the Idaho Potato Bowl today. All I could think was, “what a crappy bowl game to have to play in.”

    And it takes away the advantage, but makes everyone happy in doing so. Can't argue either side really.

    I know. That is why you want him there another 20 years. If he were, USC wins 2 or 3 out of 20. Gosh, he is awful.

    You are right. Did some checking with my USC brethren, and my correspondent said it had been this way since they had began playing 94 years ago.
