I think it might be easier for teams to setup neutral site games. I remember for years LSU struggled to get home and home series with OOC teams and failed. I remember one team begging to back out and another team forced a last minute cancellation. LSU was stuck in both situations with having to find a FCS to fill in and the media gave us hell for it.
It seems over the past few years schools like Oregon and Wisconsin are more amiable to playing. Maybe it is because schedules are planned so far in advance and neutral sites are easier to add to their schedule.
Who knows, maybe the Badgers will enjoy playing LSU so much that they eventually agree to a Home and Home exchange.
Oh and while I am on the topic, wasn't LSU the first SEC team, in recent years, to play in the neutral site games to start the season? I think so, because I remember Saban and Bama doing it the following year and thinking to myself that their copy cats.
So I am listening to 680 the fan up here in Atlanta and the talking heads start off with comments based on the rest of the SEC needs to take Bama's lead with neutral site games and stop complaining about OOC opponents and schedules.
