Report: Florida State contacts OU re: 2012 football game
CAMPUS CORNER — Just saw a report in the Orlando Sentinel from my buddy Coley Harvey that Florida State has reached out to, among other teams, Oklahoma to fill a void in its 2012 football schedule.
Wouldn’t that be interesting, a Stoops family homecoming? Get Ron Jr. and Youngstown State down here for some sort of jamboree, maybe?
Hypothetically, the teams would continue their home-and-home series with another round. OU clobbered the Seminoles here in 2010 and escaped with a 10-point victory in Tallahassee this past fall.
The Sooners want to build a formidable non-conference schedule, sure, but Notre Dame and Florida State? That might be a bit much, even if there would be plethora of Stoopses.
The Seminoles are suddenly in the market for a game because West Virginia dropped them earlier in the day Saturday. Let’s take that as an indication that the move to the Big 12 is likely, with the Mountaineers dumbing down their schedule since the conference season would be much more difficult than the Big East.
WVU’s move is what’s holding up the release of the Big 12 schedule. Some TV execs might have been given the tentative schedule, but no info will be divulged until the Mountaineers get things settled with the Big East.
Sept. 8 is the date FSU is eyeing, for what that’s worth. The only date OU has said it doesn’t want to touch is the Oct. 27 Notre Dame game.
Note, too, that the ‘Noles have spoken with Rutgers officials. That’s a school OU AD Joe Castiglione has spoken with, potentially for a neutral site game in the Meadowlands. If FSU snatches the Knights up first, I highly doubt they’d want to play both teams.
