    7 Road Games Season

    The football team has almost paid the note off fully (6 road games completed vs only 3 home games) in this ABSURD 7 game road schedule. We're one of just 3 FBS teams to play this many road games at this point in the season, but hey- we're 6-3 overall.

    That is one of the prices you pay for scheduling 1 for 2's vs Miss St, Baylor,... We get paid a lot less financially and we get to play extra road games each year. Thanks Tommy.

    Re: 7 Road Games Season

    And it's 100% on the AD. In last night's post game, HC mentioned the schedule arrangement especially playing an SEC type opponent this late coupled right before three conference games. (Higher probability of injuries prior to three conference games in a row) Also HC mentioned that the schedule is something that he is not involved in; he is just told "here you go".

    A bye after playing your first two games? Scheduling our team against a year in/year out very physical MState team prior to three conference games? Heck, scheduling conference games this late when you know your team will have injuries? Allowing SEC refs @ an LSU night home games?

    Weak... need to build on the highs we have reached in the past. We can do better because we have been better.

    Did our AD even get an interview from Miss St for giving them such a sweet deal? Maybe Baylor or NCSt is still an option for him.

    No chance our southland a.d. goes to a P-5 school. P-5's care lots about BB, and our southland a.d. might be the worst a.d. in the nation at hiring basketball coaches.

    Re: 7 Road Games Season

    Before the season I posted I thought the best we would do on the road was 2-5, wins at USA and UTSA. Yet, we have also won at UNT and FAU. We will have a winning record on the road, 4-3 at worse, possibly 5-2. That's remarkable. I had also hoped we would run the table at home, 5-0, but we should at least finish 4-1 at home. I knew UAB would be good, but had no idea they would be this good. Still, with a proper QB/offense we would have beaten UAB at home. Road losses at ranked SEC opponents is a little more understandable. I haven't a clue what happened in Starkville though. No way is Moo State that good. We just didn't show up.

    Looking at the big picture, 8-4 or maybe 9-3, is a good season, all things considered.

    I think 9 wins is Holtzís ceiling. I havenít seen anything that tells me otherwise.

    We need 6 home/6 road every year.

    1 $ game - 1 FCS - home/home with G5 team (preferably AAC).

    I’m totally against FCS game. I have no interest in seeing Tech play any FCS team. We should be able to get a Sunbelt team that would draw more interest.

    Re: 7 Road Games Season

    If we are going to pay an FCS team to come in here and beat us once every 4 or so years, we could at least look at the FBS leagues take the worst 3-4 from the G-5's and the worst couple from the P-5's and try scheduling them.

    If the goal is 6 home games per year, and we're still going to play a $ game each season, then we'd have to play an FCS team to balance things out. Otherwise with SD's proposed 1 $ game, 2 G5 home and home games - we'd we rotating between 5 and 6 home game seasons.

    I agree with what you are saying, but our AD's goal is not to play 6 home games each season. 5 this year and 5 again in 2020. This is with G5 home and home games.

    We might as well be playing the ULtwins on a regular basis instead of the non-draws he is bringing in.

    Re: 7 Road Games Season

    Last year we had 7 home games (which included Miss State) and this year we have 5. I haven't noticed, did season tickets even go down with the reduced amount of games?
