Getting big-time programs on the schedule isn't an issue new to Louisville football.
For proof, the Auburn website The War Eagle Reader recently dug through the AU athletic department archives and found some correspondence between then U of L football coach Lee Corso and former Tigers head coach Ralph Jordan. Corso was attempting to convince Jordan to put the Cardinals on Auburn's schedule for the 1972 season, something which ultimately did not come to fruition.
The letters are an interesting read.
