P5 schools can afford to pay decent schools to come in and play instead of home and homes. We can't.

    If we lived in basketball country (northeast, midwest) we'd have plenty of great mid major schools we could travel to play. Unfortunately we live in the middle of the worst college basketball area in the country.

    In our very worst baseball years we still end up with an RPI under 100. Yes, we're a good program, but a big reason for that is that most of the local Southland schools we play on weekdays all have decent RPIs. We can go to a Nichols or Northwestern and play a good team. With basketball, the exact opposite is true. Last year, aside from Houston we had the best RPI of any team within 5 hours of us.
    Exactly, it makes sense geographically and economically. I would much rather play a home and home with a Southlamd school than pay Springhill to come in for a midseason exhibition game like we did 2 years ago.

    I'm for whatever it takes to get the D-II schools off of the schedule.

    After that, we can work on better RPI schools.

We all know we have not won as many of those as we probably should have in the past. If Stroman cannot go (personally I have my doubts he will if he did not practice yesterday), Marquetti will play point much of the game with Stove starting at the 3 spot. Nicholls does have an interesting philosophy this year with 5 graduate transfers on their team. I guess they are trying to get a quick fix and build off what they hope to be a successful year. I did note that the Colonels do not have webcast capability so if you are not going to the game, you have to listen on 107.9 FM. 1420 AM has Acadiana High playoff football tonight.
    UL should not do more than a 2-Home and 1-Away with schools like Nicholls.

    At the same time UL should be doing as many 2-Away, 1-Home games as possible with P5 (basketball focused) schools. 3-1 if that is what it takes to get the ball rolling.

    This approach is the only way to get back to Home-Home with peers from around the country.

    Good idea there Turbine about possibly trying to get more attractive names for non conference to our place. It may need to go to 3 and 1 in order to do so and we may not get paid for any of the away games in some instances. As far as 2 and 1 for Nicholls, they would not do that unless we paid them for the 2nd visit here. I found out recently we paid 50 grand for Savannah State to come here and that is the first time in probably 20 years we paid a D1 school to come to our place. Making things more difficult is the fact that Nicholls will likely have one of their better teams this year due to all the graduate transfers. Tonight's game will be a challenge. That does not mean I will use that as an excuse if the team does not perform well. I will also not use the Stroman injury as an excuse. You simply have to win games like this.

    Wasn't the Savannah St. game tied to the Cayman Island Classic? They played Cincinnati as well and both games are listed on their schedule as part of the Tournament.

    Having a quality point guard is important to anyone. Beating Nicholls without this point guard should be expected if the team is going to be top tier.

    Indirectly it was but we still had to pay them.

    With a 3-1 vs a P5 basketball focused school with 1 free, 1 medium, and 1 large payday, UL could bring in 4 Savanna States.

    1 per year with a single 3-1 arrangement.

    I don't know what's up with Bryce on the offensive side of the ball this year. Normally he's silky smooth, making amazing passes to teammates. He's forced a few shots where if he would have passed someone would have had easy bucket

    Talk about sloppy. You can't beat a full court press?
