Playing ASU at Jiffy Pop instead of SunDevil Stadium would be awesome.

I’m positive the ACC would bend to our will if we wanted to do this. It’s certainly an option.

Playing Hawaii every year? That'll wear off pretty quick. And you have to play them at home if your going to schedule a road game every other year. A one off might work but then you have to find a new one every other year.

Not every year, every other year. We throw in a token game at ND maybe every third year or something.

Plus I'm scratching my head at the notion that you think either AZ or ASU would be a better quality opponent than Stanford. They have the most wins in the past decade of any Pac 12 team outside of Oregon, I believe. And that might be a tie.
Just spitballing here. I’m not suggesting the rivalry get broken off, just scooted back a week when we play that last week game (like Cal/Stanford and USC/UCLA do)

Also, I’m not suggesting it’s an UPGRADE in quality of opponent at all. It’s just NOT Stanford - which is the point.

Recruiting, and because our kids like to see the sun at least once in November.

Plenty of sun in Florida or Texas.

Can you not recruit a state without playing a game there now? Funny rule I guess...

I didn't institute the policy, just answering your questions of why it exists. Keeping both USC and Stanford on the schedule ensures we play at least one game in California every year. And I would assume there's a certain % of local recruits there each year who will drive to see us play in state but won't necessarily book a flight to South Bend. For a long time there was a huge disparity between the amount of effort we were dedicating to CA and the # and quality of recruits we were getting out of it, but that seems to be behind us now. Who am I to tell Kelly and Swarbrick the annual game in Cali isn't worth it?

The admin also considers Stanford our closest peer in the FBS, and thus presumably sees value in playing them every year. We ought to do whatever we can to keep our foot on their throat while they're down, because few programs can threaten our long-term stability than a resurgent Stanford regularly stealing 4 scholar-athletes from us.
