    Wrong, the softball world is different now. Without a strong conference we would be nothing. Yes lets join the Southland in other sports, not they would take us. How many softball teams make it in to the NCAA tournament, yes that would be 1.

    I noticed you ignored the fact that Notre Dame has a scheduling agreement with the ACC because it does not fit your narrative. Why would the most successful independent in the history of college football, with almost unlimited resources, need to have an agreement with the ACC to schedule football games?

    You keep up the good fight and you will be sitting in the stadium by yourself if it ever happened. I do not want to see southland conference softball, maybe baseball.

    Just curious, how many season tickets do you have for softball and baseball?

I'm not a fan of the Falwell's... but we are talking about football. I could divulge even more disgusting human characteristics embedded in some of the P5 schools... relating directly to football... that we agree to play (for money mainly). But we seem to overlook those differences. If we found out that a particular university president was an outspoken atheist... would we not play that school in football, baseball, basketball?

    I can see the contempt for adding another FCS come lately to FBS in our already lackluster lineup. But I do not agree that just because Liberty has some odd views in their practice of Christianity... we take exception to challenging them in athletics.

NMSU is going Independent hoping for a lifeline before they will be forced to FCS. Liberty is hedging their bets that they have enough money to last long enough to impress and they will accept a conference invitation the day it is extended.
    You think to lowly of your school.

    6 on the road.

    Alternating between 2, 3, and 4 appearance fees per year, average 3.

    Hone and home for the rest will be easy, they all still have to fill out a schedule almost 100 non P5 schools to choose from.

    If you win they want to play you for respect and potentially an upset. If you lose they want to play you to pad their schedule.

    Everyone is living in fear of pre-internet 1997.

    Our Home and homes sucks now and we are only trying to find 1 or 2 a year..but yeah 6 would be so easy. You are dillusional on this. You think you are the only person to ever consider this? They are is a reason the only ones to do it are forced. However I'm sure you are more Informed on the subject than every single AD, president and athletic department inbthe country. If BYU would find a conference that would accommodate their no playing on Sunday, they would be back in a conference too.

    No everyone is living in the real world. Again why does Notre Dame have an agreement with the ACC if scheduling is so easy?

    Want a case study in independent football at the G5 level? Look at UMass. 0-6 already on the year. No chance at a conference championship and no chance at a bowl game. You think that would work here? RCAF money would dry up fast.

    Why do people want to bring their identity politics into sports? Oh, because the left finds it fashionable to discriminate on college campuses regardless of federal dollars.

    Look, I don't believe that dinosaurs existed 2,000 years ago anymore than I believe a male can transition and become female. Neither can be proven scientifically. Both are irrelevant when deciding which programs make your conference more financially stable. It's about money, not about belief systems or ideology for that matter. It is about financial stability!

    Southland is a red herring argument.

    A few years ago without the #1 out of conference schedule in the country UL softball would have been a 16 seed.

    Right now UL sports teams have to do everything in their power "out of conference" (The INDEPENDANT part of their schedule) to overcome the weakness of the Sun Belt.

    ps The ACC made ND an offer as a means of future enticement. If being a full fledged Conference member of the conference was the best move, they would already be in. Good teams + automatic scheduling = good move.

    Bad teams + automatic scheduling = bad move.

    Biggest loss by 10.

    I will be able to judge them better after the Sun Belt portion of their schedule.

    I believe the "Geaux Independent" crowd have successfully been vanquished with this post.

    All I can say is wow. We would not have been a 16 seed in the SLC.

    Please send me what ever you are smoking I really need to get high after reading this.

    Give me this deal and we can talk all other talk is foolish.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...ime/326356001/

    "The Fighting Irish play five member schools every season. Last week the conference announced all of Notre Dame's future ACC opponents through 2037.

    Notre Dame has maintained its independence because of its television contract with NBC, which runs through 2025. NBC reportedly pays the school $15 million annually."

    Because I am invested in those programs you want to kill by going independent. Y'all ignore the simple fact that we do not have a conference to move to for those sports.

    Now you know why it's only 5 games.

    Already they had to take Michigan and Michigan State, off their schedule as an every year opponent.

    It will be interesting to see the relative NBC numbers in 2026.

    The independent portion of the diamond sports schedules is the only thing keeping them alive.

    I repeat as an example: When UL softball had the #1 ranked RPI in the country (OOC) the Sun Belt schedule prevented them from hosting. If you removed the out of conference schedule completely they would have been a 16 seed that year. Based on Sun Belt weakness.
