    FCS Rotation (accidental Band thread)

    Now that we've seen the Demons won't travel if there team is, bad, we need to come up with a new rotation! Also, no schools should get a PREMIUM rate, even if it's your alma mater!

    I don' think the every 3-4 years rotation is going to work.

    Maybe schedule NSU, GSU, Southern once every 8-10 years. That should help with the novelty.

    Throw in SLU, Nicholls, and McNeese + a couple of more SLC.

    I don't mind H/H with ULL, but I think if we can buy a game against ULM every ten years, that would be good too.

    Also, spread out the HBCU games - they don't need to be back-to-back years.

    Yr 1 - NSU
    Yr 2 - UCA
    Yr 3 - McNeese
    Yr 4 - Southern
    Yr 5 - SFA
    Yr 6 - Nicholls
    Yr 7 - Grambling
    Yr 8 - SLU
    Yr 9 - ULM

    repeat

    If you must include them, put nlulm down for a home and home too. They would not come to Ruston w/out a return game for $500K.

    Also, the whole "let's keep the money in state" is weak political squawk. I'm not convinced playing an in state school has ever helped us politically.

    Re: FCS Roation

    if we play H/H with nlu, the games should be 5 years apart - I don't think back to back games is good for series.

    I had another idea in the shower - i think all FCS schools should be paid the going rate at the time of the contract.

    Then we should add either an attendance or ticket sales "premium."

    The ticket sales premium would be to give each school X number of tickets that they sell and keep the proceeds. I'm not sure if this is already done.

    Since 20,000, is probably baseline- we give each school 5000 tickets which they can sell for $20 - to net an extra $100,000. Put the tickets in the wings. Also, each school would get enough tickets for there band.

    I agrree that we don't have to keep the $ in-state, but I don't many (any) FCS that are going to travel to ruston. That's why I included the LA schools plus area SLC schools. We can include the other SWAC schools as well as long as they bring fans

    I'd put it in the "it hurt us" category because of ULL's name-game shenanigans.

    Just say no to ULM - it brings absolutely nothing to the table for us.....nothing.

    Re: FCS Roation

    I'm not opposed to it anymore. It does bring the potential of a full house.

    If it were up to me to take college football, smash it up and start over from scratch, I would implement a pre-season game. I might even consider 2, make it mandatory to play one home and one away - it could even be the same team, one from nearby.

    Good list, but agreed with faninmonroe. No ULM. Get Lamar, SHSU, Jackson St, or UALR if their program ever gets the green light. Anyone else, really.

    Our coach and AD want ulm on the schedule. Our #everloyalbe president understands the pitfalls of that.

    I predict we will have a signed home in home with Louisiana within the next 12 months...

    Games maybe 3-4 years out but a contract will be signed
