    USM or Rice. They at least wouldn’t ruin RPI.

    Dallas Baptist is #1 in RPI. There aren't many teams Tech could lose to and two days later be in the same RPI spot it started the week at (#33).

    Rice is #173 in RPI right now. A sweep against them next weekend would by itself still hurt Tech's RPI.

    No brainer...Dallas Baptist.

    Nothing to gain from playing usm from here out. They are lower than nlulm to me.

    Plus, it's a much more enjoyable weekend in the metroplex than that crap hole in mississippi.

    If we play USM it should be as a single midweek game alternating home and home. Get rid of Little Rock and its 200+ RPI.

    And if Northwestern State doesn't improve its program, midweek should be limited to just one game a year. Demons have a 250 RPI right now out of 301.

    Avoid the SWAC. Only team above 242 RPI is Bethune-Cookman.

    One of the biggest issues C-USA will have to deal with starting next year is how many conference weekends to play. Only 9 baseball teams next year and 8 for 2024.

    Sorry, the poll hadn't "posted" yet, so I didn't know it was between the two of them. Thought it was more hypothetical. Now that I see the choices, I would say both.

    Exactly...

    USM midweek only

    The fact that we only dropped 3 spots in rpi is a testament to the strength of DBU (#1 rpi) and us - too bad most of our fans don't get the baseball side of the equation and look at name only

    I agree about the Demons - a win is going to hurt us and a loss is really bad, ULM is a much better fit strength wise

    Do you think the conference should play 10 series or keep 8/7? H/H for 2/3 going forward?

    My concern is finding suitable opponents if we only play 7 or 8 weekend series. On the otherhand I do not like an unbalaned conference schedule.

    Simple solution - play 10 conference weekend series

    Next H/H with you travel partner

    Following H/H with two schools then rotate two different every year - every third year you are rotating through the conference playing each team

    Or your try to match a conference that has similar #'s for OOC series the first two weeks - but that could be an unwanted RPI hit

    The problem/advantage of travel partners is that FIU would just about be the most logical for Tech and C-USA as a whole geographically in the new C-USA.
    NMSU-SHSU (839 miles)
    Tech-FIU (1060 miles)
    MT-WKU (92 miles)
    JSU-Liberty (547 miles)

    NMSU and Tech paired together (933 miles) and SHSU and FIU (1252 miles) paired together would be another alternative, but that's 286 more miles.
    JSU-Tech (462 miles) and Liberty-FIU (934 miles) would be another alternative, and that's 211 less miles.

    I'd rather have what recruiting advantage there might be from being in Miami for a weekend every season.

    It needs to be either 8 or 10 conference weekends to keep an equal number of home and road weekends. And like DFM, I would lean toward 10.
