You have to put yourself in a BCS school's shoes. I'm not going to be able to go out and buy-in a Nebraska or a Syracuse to come in at that short of notice because they're all trying to do the same things to get a seventh home game just because of the revenue component.

The thought behind (the executive-style course) is that it would tap into a little bit of a different clientele that would come and play the course. They think that you can get through a round there in an hour-and-a-half. For somebody that just wants to work on their game, beginners, somebody who just wants to get through after work.

I would like to fill them as soon as possible. Other teams are in similar situations, figuring out how they're going to move forward and fill those dates.

To find a Division I-A opponent to play was very difficult because of that. And I was nervous for awhile that we'd have to go the I-AA route.

I was very nervous about that. I think we were fortunate to schedule a Division I-A team on that date.

A little because we'll have more time and our open dates are going to be different in some of those years. All Division I-A teams are in the same boat - some of which has been affected by how far teams have scheduled out, five or six years.

It has been a challenge to say the least. Not just for us, but every school.

They saw we had an opening. I made the phone call out of courtesy, assuming they would want us to go out there and play. They said they'd like to come to Madison as part of a two-for-one deal.
