    Conference Scheduling Insanity?

    After Saturday the Techsters are scheduled to play FOUR consecutive road games. Why did this happen, but more important, why did our AD allow it to happen?

    Also, the league consists of an even number of teams. Yet two teams have played 12 games while the remainder have played 11. Same holds true for the men's teams. Why would this happen by an act of commission on the part of the conference administration. There had to be a benefit to someone. Otherwise why? Anyone got any ideas.

    Because our AD doesn't work for Tech. He works for every school we play.

    I think there were a few options on the table. We chose to play USM way back when other teams played their last Non-Con game.
    Marshall and WKU played on the Monday the week they played us and USM- they played 3 in one week. Very weird scheduling all around.

    Much of it has to do with men's Bonus Play and the first 13 games of the women's conference schedule being reverse sites to games 2-14 of the men's conference schedule. That put 7 of the first 11 games but just one of the last five games of the women's conference schedule at home.

    Also, Tech only plays one game in each of the last three weeks of the conference schedule to allow maximum flexibility in scheduling for men's Bonus Play. Not like it is killer travel with a bus trip to USM one week and a bus trip to Rice the next week before UAB comes to Ruston the last week.
