CORSO PETITIONS STATE LAWMAKERS:
Hoosiers try for Irish match-up

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - "It would be best for the
state of Indiana and all the football fans if Notre Dame
played both Purdue and Indiana instead of Purdue ex-
clusively," says Hoosier Coach Lee Corso, who has outlined
his proposal toa state representative.
Corso's comments, included in a letter to Rep. Danny
Burton, (R-Indianapolis,) have been forwarded to other
legislators.
WHILE BURTON said he doesn't think lawmakers
should "stick their nose into the athletic programs of the
schools involved," he said he hoped the letters would give
them "something to think about."
Under Corso's plan, Indiana would replace the Boiler-
makers on Notre Dame's schedule every three or four
years. As of now, Purdue and Notre Dame have agreed to a
home-and-home series through 1990.
According to Corso's proposal, "Notre Dame would play
Purdue, for example, in 1978 and 1979 and Indiana would
take the Pufdue date of 1980 and 1981 and so on, as'long as-
Purdue is on Notre Dame's schedule."

Corso continued:
"THE ARGUMENT used against this would be:
"No. 1, money. I feel sure that we can get Indiana
University to give Notre Dame exactly what they would get
when they play at Lafayette.
"No. 2, quality of football. That is easy, we have beaten
Purdue twice in a row.
"No. 3, schedule. There won't be any problem because all
we have to do is drop one of our games in those two-year
blocks. Notre Dame would have to do nothing, and Purdue
could take the game we drop and put it on their schedule."
THE FIRST time Indiana has a home-and-home series at
the same time Purdue is booked to play Notre Dame is 1981-
82. But the scheduled Hoosier opponent is Syracuse, a team
which would not attract the same gate at West Lafayette as
the Irish.
Beginning with the 1979 game at Purdue, the visiting
team will t e home $100,00 no matter whattthe gate. In
the past, the two schools have split the receipts. ..
