    Throw in 3/4 money games against A-5 schools

    Then we will probably see 3/4 SWAC/MEAC/SLC

    Then that leaves us three for a tourney

    That gets us 14 OOC games with a OOC SOS in the neighborhood of 150-175 which is a vast improvement over prior years

    After the stunt NWSt pulled last year, I'm not in favor of giving them any games regardless of venue

    Most want a pie in the sky schedule -

    I just want a good decent schedule that leaves us in the neighborhood of 135-175 OOC SOS, we can't help our conference SOS

    And Tech is the only team in C-USA that can't schedule decent OOC games at home or at neutral sites. You'd think the C-USA office would help us out a little bit, especially since our record shows we are likely to have success at a tournament like B4A.
    Someone posted this on the CUSA board this week. It says LA Tech has the best mens BB record and the 2nd best football record against CUSA teams since 2014:


    I ran the stats a few weeks ago, but here are updated numbers that should be pretty accurate. This is since the 3.0 CUSA was technically "fully formed" for the most part with the current teams I think or overall close to it. Basically the past 3 years:

    College Football standings last 3 years 2014-2016):

    WKU: 31-10 (19-5)
    La. Tech: 27-15 (19-5)
    Marshall 26-13 (15-9)
    MTSU: 21-17 (16-8)
    ODU: 21-16 (14-10)
    USM: 19-20 (12-12)
    UTSA: 13-24 (11-13)
    Rice: 16-21 (10-14)
    UTEP: 16-22 (10-14)
    FIU: 13-23 (10-14)
    UNT: 10-27 (6-18)
    FAU: 9-27 (7-17)
    _________________________
    UAB: 6-6 (4-4) - 1 year
    Charlotte: 6-18 (3-13) - 2 years

    MBB standings last 2.5 years (since new members fully competing): 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017 current

    LT 68-27 (37-12)
    UAB 61-34 (36-13)
    MTSU 66-31 (34-15)
    ODU 67-31 (33-16)
    UTEP 50-40 (30-18)
    WKU 50-41 (26-22)
    Marshall 42-48 (26-22)
    Rice 41-48 (22-26)
    Charlotte 39-50 (21-28)
    FIU 35-55 (17-31)
    UTSA 30-57 (17-31)
    UNT 33-54 (16-32)
    USM 24-59 (13-36)
    FAU 25-60 (11-37)


    Numbers may be a little off on MBB as I just updated them from the past few weeks of play. As you can see the Texas and Florida schools have struggled pretty badly since CUSA 3.0 was sort of fully formed. 5 of bottom 7 in MBB (UTEP only exception) and 6 of bottom 7 (if you include Charlotte) in CFB

    Football seems to be tied for 1st record in CUSA with both Tech and WKU at 19-5 in conference... Not to totally take away from our phenomenal achievements, but I believe being in the west has helped our record somewhat...

    Not really. At least not in football. Because unlike most teams in the west --and even some teams in the east-- LA Tech has had to play the best teams (WKU, MTSU, etc...) in the east. Even ODU doesn't do that. For example, this year ODU didn't even have MTSU on its schedule.

    Agreed, I said somewhat because I felt it was only a small impact.

    Re: 2018 Dunkin' Dawgs Schedule

    I, along with everybody else, hate our OOC home schedule. I have always wondered if Ruston's location had anything to do with it. Most majors and mid major teams are going to have to fly into Dallas, catch a connection to Shreveport, and charter a bus an hour to Ruston.

    Objectively, if I was an AD of an opposing program that had my pick of away games, this would not be my first choice. I would like to compare Techs home schedule to another "mid-major" that has comparable location issues.

    I mean the Lady Techsters can get Auburn to come (granted, their history may be why). And the softball tournament brought in North Dakota of all teams. If we can do that with non-revenue sports, why not a team that makes money?

    Attendance wise, having a public bus service driving between Monroe & Shreveport 2+ times per day would make Tech's campus more accessible... and help North Louisiana's economy...

    Re: 2018 Dunkin' Dawgs Schedule

    I kinda think you answered your own question. WBB and softball are practically write offs for most programs. AD's are under more pressure to maximize profits for MBB and football. Spending the extra money and time for a Louisiana Tech away game may not make sense. I just wonder if there is a way to entice teams to travel here, 2 for 1 kind of deal?

    Many of our MBB gurus have explained why over the years. Our MBB budget is way too low. We can't afford to schedule home and home games with the likes of those mentioned above by FIM. We are forced to play money games for our own revenue. The coach/team needs a few home game tuneups before conference so we are left with very little money or scheduling room for the two home/two away games mentioned each year. We also waste spots/money playing some of the in state teams.

    It has NOTHING to do with our location. That's been a well used excuse for many years by our admin, but it is VERY weak.
