2009 football schedule is up

The main page now has the 2009 football schedule. If anyone can find a better "local" newspaper for Louisiana-Monroe, please let me know.

As most Sun Devil fans know, the athletic department generally follows the formula for out-of-conference games of having an A, B and C opponent. Unfortunately, this year's B opponent (BYU) backed out, and our A game is on the road at Georgia, so we're left with two C opponents at home. Since this is an odd-numbered year, we get five conference home games including USC and au, so the October-November portion makes up for a weak September.

Let's sum things up really easily: if we're not 2-0 going into Athens, then the season is already over. Joking aside, I don't see any reason we shouldn't be 4-1 in the Pac-10 going into the SC game. As usual, the conference schedule is back-loaded, so a fast start is always critical.
