It's not quite Nebraska standards, but it's a pretty clear indication of how much progress the program is making.On the other side of the spectrum is Syracuse, a former league power who could be giving sellout a different meaning. The struggling Orange are reportedly considering a series with Notre Dame that is similar to the insulting one UConn capitulated to, and the one RU rejected.The Post-Standard reports Syracuse would play the Irish ten times, but hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the rub: Five times in South Bend, and five Ã¢â‚¬Å“homeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ games in East Rutherford. For those of you that havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t made that trek, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about four hours _ over 240 miles _ from the Carrier Dome. Home game.http://blogs.nypost.com/sports/backpage/archives/2008/08/rutgers_sold_ou.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
