    I know. It's very short sighted and childish behavior by the other schools, but just wanted to reiterate that effort should be made constantly. Although, if we get our RPI high enough, they will start magically returning those phone calls.

    Why would you advocate playing Rice and USM? Rice's RPI was 325. USM was 206. In fact, with the exception of Houston, Nicholls and Southeastern's RPI was higher than all of those teams this year.

    It's not just RPI, its perception. I would rather have Rice and USM on our schedule than Nichols, SE Louisiana, McNeese, Savannah State, New Orleans, Loyola New Orleans, and Louisiana College. Besides, if we are ever moving to a better conference, we need to be playing schools in those better conferences. Just look at the NIT. We have a better RPI than LSU, a better record and a better facility, yet LSU got the higher seed. We have to change the perception of who we are and who we associate with by scheduling better and winning against better competition to enable us to move to a better conference and change the perception of UL.

    Lets just go ahead and schedule like Texas Southern go on the road against power teams the first 13 games of the season. Start off a solid 0-13 and make the tourney with a 15-19 record.

    I think its interesting that some would rather schedule Rice and USM than Nicholls and SLU, but there are also those that complain that LSU wont schedule us but will play Troy and UAB etc.

    We should not play any of those schools.

    Building relationships. Our fans can travel. We should have a general policy for all sports to schedule these schools as much as possible. Some things have greater value than RPI. However, USM is the only one of that group with historically bad RPI averages.

    As for Nicholls and SELA, I'm not against playing them. They just need to meet the criteria of historically good RPI averages.

    Thanks for update. Fingers crossed.

    I'm trying to block out the noise around this game and to be honest, I am really looking forward to watching this one tonight!

    Heading to BR in a few hours

    Just to clarify, this is 5 year RPI averages.

    108-Tech
    110-Houston
    227-Tulane
    232-Southern Miss
    260-Nicholls
    265-Rice
    276-Southeastern

    So really none besides the top 2 should be considered routinely.

    Like I said, I would focus on scheduling Tech, Houston, Tulane, Southern Miss and Rice in as many sports as possible, every year. The main reason would be to build alliances and become familiar as possible with their fanbases and administrations. After all, these schools are the ones we want to be conference mates with, right?

    Also, if we are going to dive into more Power Conference scheduling, a little breather now and then would not hurt, especially if we can accomplish ulterior motives in doing so.

They will literally play any one, any place. And, it has worked for them. Our playing anyone in the Southland Conference is not quite the same thing.

    Maybe this game sparks a new home and home rivalry. Who knows. Problem with that is LSU is about to improve greatly and quickly with a good coach and recruiting. They, along with all P5s, can turn it around much quicker than we can. Took us 8 years to get to this one season of consistent success

    Rice is not a basketball juggernaut. I'm not taking the time to look at it over many years but they're RPI has been terrible in recent years.

    UL Basketball LSU showing their class.

    Called a time out to talk $***, and then he turned to the crowd and said F*** them F*** them, and then Will Wade showed his _____ in his press conference. Show the real class from LSU.

    We need to do everything we can to compete with this so called Flagship University.

    I give Marlin a lot of credit in his post game, he said "he will run his program , and we will run ours."
