    2-3 things stand out. First the removal of Eastern Illinois, which actually bothers me a bit. Our rivalry has gone on for decades and I think that is a bit short-sided. The addition of Butler, which is a total surprise but a good decision (although I knew about a few months ago). They said they would NEVER play us again after we ran up a 63-0 score, and to be honest, it makes sense. I would rather play 1-AAA (as it used to be called) non-scholarship D-1, such as Butler, Drake or Dayton, as opposed to NAIA squads that TRULY can whip your ass because of eligibilty rules. I love the Penn State MONEY GAME (and I plan to be there, as a former Pennsylvania guy), and the future dates with IU and Purdue, again for money. RP has done us well, as they say~

    Well, there are some open dates in '12 and '13.

    Is EIU definitely OFF the schedule OR are we still working out the date?

    Unless we're playing the TOP NAIA schools (Carroll, Sioux Falls, St Frank's [FW]) I expect to beat NAIA schools (and FCS-Non scholie) and Div II and Div III.

    You're right, 4Q. Only the best of the NAIA have a shot at us but trust me, those really good NAIA teams are very tough! I seriously doubt that Butler will be anywhere near as competitive as St. Francis and Quincy have been.

    There are a couple non-scholarship,FCS conferences that are very good ie. IVY, Patroit League, We will know soon enough as Butler plays Youngstown State this year early in season (Sept 11, 2010 I think)

    I'm pretty sure ISU plays at Minnesota after 2012. I read that in the Twin Cities paper a while back.

    University of Dayton is quite strong in the Patriot. It will be interesting to see if Butler is competitive in that game against Youngstown State. I still think that a NAIA champ like St. Francis would beat Butler rather handily but maybe not.

    Butler went 11-1 this past season. They also beat Dayton.

    Factual error on my part, I meant the Pioneer League that Butler plays in, and Dayton has been the cream of the crop in that league for a long time, but you're right, they did lose to Butler last year. That was a rarity however. Two games before last year's victory, they lost to Dayton, like 61-0! Patriot League has Holy Cross, Lehigh and Colgate! Sorry about that.

    The last thing we should do is start talking about running up the score agaisnt anyone. Butler now has a solid program, and has done well in the Pioneer league the last couple of seasons. That is a strong conference with Jacksonville, Drake, San Diego, and Dayton all having had very good teams in the last 5 years.

    I also agree that we need to try to get Eastern Illinois BACK on the schedule.
