No Thank You, Notre Dame

Rutgers said no to Notre Dame last week about a potential Rutgers – Notre Dame six game football series, due to the location and ticket sales arrangements that would be required.

 “Rutgers entered discussions about a possible long-term series with
Notre Dame, but at the end of the day both schools could not agree
about the site of the games,” said Rutgers Director of Athletics Robert
E. Mulcahy III.  “We feel Rutgers’ home games should be played
on-campus in Rutgers Stadium.”

Today the NY times had a great column on the situation, providing more context on why the series failed to materialize and how Rutgers refused to kowtow to the mighty Notre Dame.
