Purdue "Home and Home" on the Schedule Horizon??


Logo courtesy purdue.edu

This entry from today from Hammer and Rails mentions it:

"Some possibilities mentioned yesterday were Florida International, Florida Atlantic, and South Florida."

But, they also point to the below as a consideration against a "home and home" scheduling:

"However, fund raising efforts have fallen short and no naming rights deal is in place prompting most in the University community to believe the stadium opening will be pushed back to 2011. University officials have been tight lipped about the progress."

Wikipedia: "Progress has stalled".

Regardless, the possibility of a Big 10 Opponent in South Florida is welcomed ANY day…

I would love to see this happen!
But what do we have that Purdue would choose us over USF or FIU?
