I do agree that scheduling issues are killing the RPI of every G5 school in the south, including us.
I also agree that non-FBS schools have an advantage over FBS schools. For those schools basketball is the flagship program and they get more institutional support because of it. I beleive the main reason why SBC basketball has fallen so much in the last 10 years is because of football.
But no, I don't agree that those are excuses to not be successful here at UL.
