The key to marquis ooc games is to have them early and to limit them to 1 

per season 
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Marquis must be some kind of French word.

Yep.

"Marquee" is correct when talking about premier CFB matchups.

The French resistance fighters were known as "Maquis", if I spelled that right.  Seems like some 75th anniversary is looming.



The Maquis (French pronunciation: [maˈki]) were rural guerrilla bands of French Resistance fighters, called maquisards, during the Nazi occupation of France in World War II.

that's a stout ooc slate for a decade. seems a lot of teams are taking this approach.

ut and ou have both been mentioned.

uga has nd, oregon, ou, clemson, ucla, texas, fsu all in the next decade or so.
bama has usc, miami, texas, wvu, nd, and ou
lsu has texas, ucla, clemson, asu, ou
au has oregon, ucla, cal, penn st, unc, baylor


mich and osu both have a pretty good slate as well. and i'm sure there's several i'm missing. looks like a lot of pac teams on those lists, so i'm sure they look formidable as well.

good decade coming up it looks like.

Definitely.  I love the big intersectional matchups.  And the mar-key college teams all seem to be doing more of it recently.  Good times ahead!

Virginia also, but that's not a big add, and of course GT each year.

2021 still has an opening, only GT scheduled that year.  Some rather epic years looming.

2028
  • 09/02 – at Texas

didn't include gt because it's annual, so no change from status quo.
didn't include uva for same reason i didn't include duke for bama. just not a premier name.

those 2 years are insane, btw. added to au, tenn, uf, usce, uk, vandy and mizz and another sec w team (bama looks possible if not likely for 1 of the 2 years based on current year spacing between games, lsu not so much) and that's one i'm not sure any team in history could come out unscathed. that's of course assuming all/most of those teams are as good as their names suggest they should be.

You schedule programs, not teams.  UGA could be mediocre by then, or UVA might be very good.  Probably not.  GT doesn't seem to me to have much shot.
Clemson is on a serious roll right now.  Maybe Dabo goes to some program where a certain coach retires though.
