I personally don't care what you call yourself, the results are all the same. All I care about is my bulldogs kicking A Z Z and they have not disappointed me one bit. So if you get bent out of shape due to someone calling your school a different name, then that's your business. Not our problem bud
Fight onBulldogs : )
I think what Robe was trying to say was that the only time he feels like he can get some guys some work is during the week. As such you risk losing games in the name of getting guys some playing time because you aren't using your starters but many teams are gunning for you because they consider it a signature win.
Yes 25% of the RPI formula is your winning % so losing midweek games can hurt you just like any weekend game. How much it hurts depends on home/road win/loss makeup.
However the other part of the formula that you control is much bigger. That is the 50% factor for opponents winning %. As Brian has pointed out numerous times you don't need to schedule SEC schools etc. Its more about what you don't do. You should NEVER schedule teams that are historical bottom dwellers in regards to overall record. If you need to fill some holes go find a team in the SWAC, Patriot, Big South that typically finish towards the top of their conference. If you feel the need to help someone out like St. Peters then do it for one game only.
Bottom line is that not counting midweek games is not the answer and shows a lack of understanding of what needs to be done (within your control) to keep your RPI healthy.
If Burk is consistent comparable to other Cajuns starters, then it's a close game going in the later innings. If the middle/closers do their job and the boys can get enough runs across, then they can win. If Burk struggles and/or the middle/closers struggle, it will be tough to win. LTurd is good defensively and strong offensively. Statistically, the Cajuns are stronger in pitching.
Glad the boys are not playing in Boone this weekend. 40s and 20s.
