    I don't think so. Baylor was NOT happy about this. My contact in the athletic department told me that part of the motivation for this was to give new coach Sonny Cumbie a better schedule.

    Well, it's the same amount of $ we were getting out of the Baylor deal (yes, I know we would have had a Baylor home game).

    Do you really have to ask why Skip Holtz would cancel a season opening road game against a P5 opponent that ended the previous season 11-3, with a 26-14 Sugar Bowl loss to Georgia?
    Silly theory, since they’ve never backed out of being blown out by a P5 before.

    Yeah, I mean honestly, getting blown out by P5's is the most consistent thing about Skip.

    I've always assumed something like that happened with the weird UMass thing we did with MSU that year that we bumped our home game up. All three schools had to have been working together (although I'll still never understand why Tech or MSU would want to travel to UMass to play to begin with).

    We took last second deals to go play money games at BYU and TCU that season. It wasn't about being "scared" to lose the game.

    But it's fun to say that I guess.

    If we really wanted to lighten the schedule (and play 6 homes games per year) and the money (and Baylor's wishes) weren't the reasons - we should have started the home game of another home-and-away series with a G5 school. It's late in the game, but if that was the priority, you'd do that (or nothing).

    I mean, Missouri's not nearly as good as Baylor right now but it's still a road game against an SEC team for your first game. How does that really help much?

    So weird.

    This is the key

    We are overthinking this

    Tech's decisions often have nothing to do with rationality

    (There's probably a simple explanation but we'll never know it)

    In "invisible ink" in some cases.

    This is probably a dumb thought, but as I see it, we need to capitalize on recent success from basketball and baseball. What about P5 games being returned with home basketball games and a 3 game series in baseball. There is more money in football, but at this point, I want to see good matchups at home in MBB and baseball.

    Do you really have to ask why Skip Holtz would cancel a season opening road game against a P5 opponent that ended the previous season 11-3, with a 26-14 Sugar Bowl loss to Georgia?
    HD: We had fewer than 40 players available after a covid outbreak following the hurricane. With electricity knocked out in much of Ruston, players were sleeping on sofas and air mattresses in the apartments of teammates. We also had players sleeping on the floor of the lockerroom and in other parts of the DAC. The outbreak followed.

    Tech desperately wanted to play the game, given the fact Baylor was breaking in new schemes on both sides of the ball and a new coaching staff.

    A few weeks later we learned Baylor had their own covid issues that week and were short handed. Just not to a point where they would have to cancel. As other have pointed out Tech scheduled both BYU and TCU later in the season. It simply wasn't a covid chicken situation.
