Huskies Host LSU in 2009

Those of you hoping for a let up in the schedule may have been pretty surprised today to read that the Huskies will open the 2009 season against LSU. Other non conference games that season will be Notre Dame, and Idaho.

I am all for big non conference games, but feel one per year is enough at this time when you consider the current state of the program. Even in good years playing Notre Dame who we have never beaten, and LSU is like penciling in a couple of losses in advance.

In a year with ND already schedules I would prefer to then play a WAC, and a MWC opponent to balance things out.

Johnb, totally agree with you. If the goal of preseason is to iron out kinks and come out healthy, scheduling LSU as an opener is not smart. I don't mind playing LSU but what ever happened to 1 easy, 1 mid and 1 tough opponent. Or stated like you said,1 WAC, 1 MWC/ service acad, 1 SEC/B12/SEC/B10/ND. 99 days to go

LSU will come in with a top five team which will contend for the National Championship. Not an easy schedule for a rebuilding program which will likely have a new head coach in 2009.
