Notre Dame on the horizon?

In college football news, Paul tells me that the word on the street is that Notre Dame is expected to announce that it has reached an agreement to play two neutral site games in Orlando, possibly as early as 2008, and that Georgia is one of the names being bounced around.

While that would be unbelievably cool for a variety of reasons, it doesn't seem terribly likely. Supposedly the Irish are looking for a mid-season contest, and the only open non-conference slots the Bulldogs have in 2008 and 2009 are early in the year.

Aside from that, both of those schedules are among the more difficult ones Georgia has faced in years past. Next season, the Bulldogs open the season by traveling to South Carolina and Arizona State, return to host Alabama and then have a four-game away stretch to close the season out with visits to LSU, to Jacksonville to face Florida and to Auburn. In 2009, Georgia has a visit to Oklahoma State, goes to Tennessee and faces LSU and Auburn at home. Dropping Notre Dame into that schedule would make it one of the most challenging in the country.

Not that I wouldn't appreciate such a move, but it seems unlikely as of now.

They played FSU in Orlando back in 1994. I was there. I seem to recall discussions at the time about future home-and-home series between the 2.
