    Okay I'm changing my mind then.

    If UC wants to make Miami do a 3 for 1 and if they don't will drop them......I don't mind if it is for another BCS school home and away.

    But if it is for another MAC school or similar just for a 3 for 1 deal then I don't like it.

    For the record I don't think the Miami series is going anywhere. I think a deal similar the the Marshall/WVU deal would be best...

    As HSSRB said, UC needs to actually look like a BCS team for a while before it big times a school. Even then, it should never big time MU.

    Re: playing at PBS: If only 1,000 kids show up at Nippert, how many are going to trek down to PBS?

    Whose job will it be to filter Kelly?
    OT: I believe UK will doing a return game at Akron in 2009. Why...I don't know.

    Any long standing home and home rivalries for a BCS school with a non BCS opponent?

    And for the record from 1994 when the UL/UL rivalry was renewed it was 7-4 @ UK before UL joined the Big East. I bet BK could live with that ratio as well...

    If I recall correctly, when the contract was signed for the two schools to play, UK would play all the games at their place until the construction of Papa John's Stadium was complete.
    PJS opened in 1998, and UK went there.

    Kelly may have a legit gripe...but I kind of question the timing of it.
    Oldest rivalry west of the Allegheny's is not something you try to change overnight, IMO.

    The city is talking more about the game today than they have in a long time. I'm pretty sure the timing was calculated and direct. That's Brian Kelly in a nut shell.

    Now he better back it up...
