Anyone for a Road Trip?

Jack Swarbrick unveiled the long-overdue schedules for the next 3 seasons this week. This is a preview of our future with the ACC.

I know we all love making the pilgrimage to South Bend for a game every year or two, but I look at this schedule and my eyes widen with the road games we have coming up. I wonder if anyone would consider making a road trip or two with me. Here are some that I would really love to see:

  • 9/13/2014 Purdue @ Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy (Close for me and an awesome stadium)
  • 9/27/2014 Syracuse @ MetLife Stadium in NY (Trip to NY anyone???)
  • 11/1/2014 Navy @ FedEx Field in DC (Home game for DC folks)
  • 9/12/2015 Virginia @ Charlottsville, VA (I hear this place is BEAUTIFUL)
  • 10/3/2015 Clemson @ Clemson, SC (A true raucous road game)
  • 10/31/2015 Temple @ Lincoln Financial Field in Philly (Home game for Philly folks)
  • 11/21/2015 BC @ Fenway Park in Boston (1st football game in 45 years)
  • 9/3/16 Texas @ Austin, TX (Yeah, Texas)
  • 10/1/2016 Syracuse @ MetLife Stadium in NY (If it doesn't work out in 2014, another chance)

Keep it cheap, keep it simple. (With the exception being a possible NY family trip). I would also recommend we try to use our ND ticket contacts (Uncle Dan, Dr. Fox, Mr. Paulus) to get the tickets. Some of these sites will be hostile.  I would also imagine trying to buy them online will be VERY expensive. This will be the first Notre Dame visit to several of these locations, and regardless of what anyone says, these teams' fans will be dying to see us.

So anyone in???
