Don't think there is much to this, but one blogger thinks a matchup between BC and Alabama would make sense for 2008. We already have ND locked in and a game against Rhode Island. That leaves two spots. My guess is one will be a MAC school. And now that TOB is gone, it wouldn't surprise me if we get Navy back on the schedule. I know there has been talk of Syracuse, but nothing is final.
Taking on ND, Alabama and a full ACC slate would be a brutal schedule. I am not against it...I just don't know how Gene and Jags feel. TOB never would have agreed to play the Tide. 2008 will probably be somewhat of a rebuilding year so Gene might want to build a schedule that continues winning football over blockbuster out of conference matchups.
