"Oh look, there's a player in (insert town/city here), Florida. I think I'll go recruit him."

That's all the excuse you need to recruit in Florida. Playing a game in FLA is #1500 on the list of excuses you need to recruit there

They are throwing a fit over on the AAC Board over this...

And to prove my point, NC St. just scheduled a one for one series with USF. http://www.fbschedules.com/2018/01/nc-st...-tech-usf/

Trust me I agree...Houston, Cincinnati, UCF, USF & Boise State are G5 schools worthy of Home and Home with P5

You're clueless on this one as it pertains to Louisville. UofL has recruited Florida heavily for decades (more so than your average school outside the SE). Part of that effort includes playing games in the state, and that's partly why Louisville scheduled a 4 games series with FIU from 2011-2014.

Under the current ACC schedule policy, Louisville only plays @ Miami once every 12 years, so essentially never. It is not an accident that UofL will play in Tampa in a season where UofL hosts FSU and otherwise wouldn't have a game in the state of FL. As well, Tampa-St Pete is one of the largest University of Louisville alumni groups in the country outside of Kentucky and that is a consideration here.

Of course, TexanMark told you most of this on the AAC board and you ignored it, even though he was correct there and I'm correct here. I stayed out of it on the AAC board as a visitor, but I will correct blatant inaccuracies on the ACC board.

Agreed. Playing in Florida gives the school visibility when recruiting and then after a player is recruited, gives that player's family and friends a chance to see them play close to home. This is why Syracuse has played a Florida opponent every year since 1988. Moving forward, I'd also love to see SU schedule FIU and FAU out of conference since, like UL we only get Miami on the road once every 12 years. This is why I'm also surprised that UL worked a 2 for 1 with USF.

He's bitter .... there are very attractive AAC schools to play -- and then there is UConn.

You can make a case for playing every school in the AAC, except UConn. That would make me bitter too.
