    So we'll either play a 3rd road game ($ game) or have no $ game that year.

    We will have football! Heck, we will probably be in a conference with UNT within 5 years.

    We won’t be playing Arkansas, Miss State, Nebraska, etc. anymore…..but neither will 2/3 of current FBS schools.

    Based on our track record, the most realistic outcome is that we buy out of the home game and swap it for a money game. Then schedule an FCS for our sole home OOC game.

    I do like that we scheduled this series. Wish the return game made more sense.

    This is a good OOC home game for LA Tech for 2023. I'm very happy to see it. However, I'm a little disappointed to see that there's a 5-yr gap between these 2 games. LA Tech needs to play both UNT and SMU in football & basketball (mens and women's) OOC going forward. Perhaps rotate them?

    LA Tech has got to keep the recruiting pipeline to the DFW market "open for business" over the next few years.

    That's where that Dallas Baptist C-USA membership comes into play.

    While the "Dallas Baptist" connection is a good one for LA Tech baseball, is does nothing for the overall perception of the university. When Tech plays baseball at DBU, we MIGHT have 100 people show up for a game in Dallas. By contrast, when LA Tech plays FOOTBALL at UNT (or SMU), it's not uncommon for 5K+ LA Tech fans to attend.

    Make no mistake, UNT wanted this game in Denton as bad or worse than LA Tech did. Because LA Tech will likely draw the most visiting fans of any school the Mean Green plays at home that year, short of playing a Big XII school.

    I agree about keeping that DFW recruiting pipeline active. Right now here is what we have in football.

    2023
    at SMU
    North Texas in Ruston

    2028
    at North Texas

    Not sure about basketball (sportdawg?). But this isn't much. Also, agree Dallas Baptist baseball games will not help much with football and basketball recruiting. As long as we have to hit the road for games I say go to DFW as much as possible. Lots of Tech alums already there and great recruiting area.

    Would be great to get a home-home with TCU.

    I’d be surprised to see a home-home happen with a Big 12 team like TCU. I think those days are gone.

    The Big 12 ain't what it once was, a mere shadow of its former self. The SEC and Big 10 will be the BIG TWO and every other conference, including the remnants of the Big 12, will all be second and third tier leagues. Heck, TCU might contact us and offer a home-home.
