    I already feel better about konkol's crap scheduling, knowing I'll feel no obligation to show up and have folks see me and think I support it.
    White's scheduling was even worse than Konkol's scheduling.

    I don't think some of you guys are taking this OOC scheduling thing seriously. There's a REASON LA Tech is being ranked as having the 12th best OOC schedule in CUSA. That alone ought to make some of you guys realize that you've got to change your way of thinking. I know change comes slowly sometimes in Louisiana, but what we're doing ain't working.
    I've said this many times before. I will never drive to Ruston and buy tickets to watch Tech play these crappy schools. I fully realize nobody wants to see us play the SWAC. We aren't gonna sell many tickets for any OOC opponent willing to come to the TAC except for a few exceptions.

    But putting together a schedule isn't all about selling tickets. You have to balance a 13-game OOC schedule to make it work. Buying one SWAC game per season makes sense financially and logistically. Same as buying one non-DI opponent. But each one of those crappy opponents needs to be balanced out with a road game at a Cartel opponent. I'm all for buying 1 Southland, 1 SWAC, and 1 non-DI while playing 3 Cartel road games to balance them out. We bought 3 crappy home games but only scheduled 2 road money games.

    We should never play 2 non-DIs, and we should always play at least 3 Cartel road games to give us a chance. Beating a Top 25 Oklahoma team, C-USA regular season champions, and 27 total wins were only good enough for an NIT 3 seed. We've gotta beat at least 2 Cartel teams, and only scheduling 2 Cartel teams is asking our guys to be perfect, which is pretty much impossible.

    Believe it or not, we are gradually improving our OOC schedules, just a little slower than I'd like. Remember Richard and White scheduled ROAD games at SWAC schools. Our only road OOC games this year are at Texas and Alabama. The Cancun Challenge is the best exempt MTE we've played in since I've been following Tech basketball. What we're doing ain't working, but it is slowly getting better.

    I think a lot of that had to do with Speedy, Appleby & Kyzer (all MW recruits of course). They had a huge following, especially Speedy. We have some great players around, but those 3 were special.

    Do we have any guys on the team right now with their personalities and fan interaction? Not saying we don't, I'm not there to see it like I was during the Speedy Era. People liked to watch them and they were fantastic with the crowd. Made up for a lot of crappy opponents.

    Don't go blaming the players. It's the HC who signs the players and chooses which ones to put on the floor.

    What does that have to do with OOC scheduling?

    Attendance increased during the White era because we won 3 consecutive conference championships, made 3 consecutive NIT runs, and won at least 27 games 3 consecutive years.

    That doesn't change the fact that White put together worse OOC schedules than Konkol.

    Because we were on the rise and quick. We have plateaued as a good 20+ win team. White had everyone thinking we would be ranked/in the tournament soon.

    I'm not blaming them at all. I tried to phrase it in a neutral way. I just know how the Big Three were because I was there. I'm not there now so I don't know.

    You could catch them on campus, at bars, out to eat, the movie theatre and they were always so cool and easy to talk to. They had “it” as far as being a local celebrity and being normal guys. Kenyon McNeaill, too. He was like the older brother to those guys.
