    So, do we do homecoming early against Ulmost when it's hot or do we wait till November when it's cold and raining? Naw, let's do it on a Thursday night. Haha. [Insert photoshoped pic of Zee's buddy playing the drums but with the face of a former AD].

    I hate to be negative but I see a couple of games we will probably lose in a bad way.

    NMSU would be the only logical choice given the options.

    Well. Maybe, maybe not.

    As much as people are complaining about this schedule, I believe this team will be, at worst, 3-3 after the Texas State game. SLU, ULM, and Texas State are very poor programs right now. Idaho and Tulsa will be toss ups.

    After that begins the 3 game road swing at ASU, USA and Ole Miss. If Hudspeth wants to have any chance of keeping his job he will have to win at least 2 of those 3.

    Tough job? Yes, but this is in no way un-doable and a coach killer. It is just year 7, and it's time to do your business or get off of the pot.

    Michigan and Navy didn't have any night home games last season, and ohio state only had one. Purdue didn't have any night games at all, home or away..
    and NC State played at an AAC team last yr and at a CUSA and Sunbelt team the yr before. and didn't host any P-5s outside of conference arrangements

    Michigan probably doesn't want night games. NC is Lafayette, La.

    We're not playing historically relevant programs. We need every single advantage we can muster. Broiling in early September isn't getting that done. Having nearly a month between home games isn't getting it done.

    When I was a kid Midwestern teams always played midday, at least that's when I saw them.

    That's the Big 10, they've always hated night games. They still to date, as you pointed out, don't play many.

    That's an ugly home schedule, are we still in FBS? (rhetorically speaking)
    Come on Dr. Maggard, get this football program out of the dumps. You are on the clock, maybe.

    Dr. Maggard doesn't have a hand in the football schedule until 2020, FYI.

    I'll only comment that with Ole Miss and their problems with the NCAA, that game *might* be interesting.

    I don't share the same optimism with Tulsa and aTm.
