This could become a huge rivalry one day in the 1-AA level CUSAAC once Middle replaces USF or SMU or whoever gets called up next instead of Memphis. I know I can’t wait for this level of excitement!!!

We've tried for years to get a H-H with Vandy. They won't do it. So we are setting it up with the other MT school (and better program).

Do we need to play MTSU in order to sign players from only 200 miles away? There are more players in TX, LA, & GA than in middle TN… if you need to play cupcakes to recruit, then keep playing ULM & Georgia State. MTSU is literally a no-win/no-interest game.

Who would you want to play that will play us? Do you even know if we reached out to P5 teams and they turned us down or wouldn’t give us a home game.SMH

Lets play Oklahoma State. How about Iowa State? Maybe Ga Tech. How about Arizona or BYU? I have no problem with 1 cupcake, 1 Sunbelt & 2 P5 level teams… but we’ve been getting a steady diet of SunBelt.

Are they any different than our future conference mates? The new AAC is more sunbelt than P6.

You see when we start beating the P5's they start backing out. Probably the best we can do.

Middle beats Vandy every time they play. Vandy is BAD. Just because their SEC don't mean anything.

RE: Tigers-Middle Tennessee
This home and home makes a lot of sense. Close by, easy drive for both programs, and should be W’s for the good guys.

Don’t forget our upcoming non-conference schedule - plenty of high end opponents coming up (super excited for 23!):

23: Missouri & Boise, both at home
24: at FSU
25: Arkansas at home
26: at Arkansas and at Boise
27: TBD
28: Mississippi State at home, at Arkansas
29: at Mississippi State
30: Boise at home
31: at Boise

I’m hoping we can get another P5 home and home put in there - I personally hope for Ole Miss because of the rivalry and easy road trip. Never want to play UT since they’ve dodged us for this past decade. Which leads to my last point - it takes two to tango, and I understand we’ve been told no far more than has been made public. The home and home + 1 buy game with Arkansas makes sense, and the 1 buy game at Florida State makes sense, but we need to find another P5 willing to do a home and home with us. Easy said, hard to do.

MTSU doesn’t move the needle in football at all in Nashville.

Memphis Cotton Bowl year (2019) we played at Louisiana-Monroe and South Alabama.

I mean, its not exciting, but MTSU is probably better than either of those programs.
