They can buy home games with their money, otherwise they'll be looking for home/home deals with schools like TXST. I don't think they're going to be so desperate for games that they'd be willing to play games on the road with no return game at their place and no paycheck.


To me, the only year that they MIGHT be forced to pay for away games will be 2018. And that is only because it is VERY rapidly upon them to fill out a schedule. And they may be willing to pay for that type of game just so that the home team would be able to pay out the contract on a game.

But even then, that's a big if.

I agree. I don't see an upside to us playing them.

We should certainly never schedule them in any sport. By doing so, you legitimize the illegitimate.

Larry has expressed in the past that his goal is to schedule Texas or more local home and homes. I think this will lead to a series with NMSU. They are closer than many teams, Texas is huge so it is all relative. We have shared two conferences with them and I think I remember reading TXST voted for them to join the SBC as full members. And NMSU will be really needing home and homes as an indy so it is natural to work something out with teams they are familiar with. I am sure TXST would rather to continue to get the likes of UTSA, UH, SMU, Baylor, etc because NMSU has proven not to put butts in the seats but if push comes to shove NMSU isn't the worst option for filling in 2018.

nmsu on a fairly regular basis wouldn't bother me. especially if it replaced the fcs game those years.

Based on the assumption we get better and NMSU is an easy win.

Right now we need FCS games just to pad the W column. NMST beat us by 40 last year...

meh. we beat them by 40 2 years ago. i'll take my chances that over time we're the better program.

i also hate the fcs game, regardless of the w. i'd rather schedule a bottom 30 fbs team and roll the dice.

They beat us by 10 two years ago, and we only beat them by 8 three years ago.

Assuming you're referring to when we beat them by 38, but that was 5 years ago now.
Time flies when you suck I guess.

We were also in an accident that day we got beat by forty.. We would've lost either way, but not by 40 :shock:

For what it's worth, we've played Liberty twice. We lost at Liberty in 1990 and at home against them in 1993. Regardless, I have no interest in ever scheduling them again.

So I was bored at work and looked at the future schedules for the other 4 G5 conferences and compiled a list of schools with openings next year. Assuming most schools are looking to have 2 home and 2 away games and we need a home game, for a school to schedule us they need to have 1 or no away games scheduled already.

School (OOC Home games, OOC Away games)

Western Michigan (0 H, 1 A)
UNLV (0 H, 2 A)
Utah State (0 H, 2 A)
FIU (2 H, 1 A)
MTSU (0 H, 3 A)
UAB (1H, 2 A)
UTEP (2 H, 1 A)
Cincinatti (2 H, 1 A)

UH (1 H, 2 A)
UCF (2H, 1A)


The bolded ones fit the criteria, so Western Michigan, FIU, UTEP, Cincinatti, and UCF. I'd be fine with any of these except for FIU. Of course Liberty is also in play here but hopefully we can avoid them and schedule one of these instead. Also some of these schools might not have released all of their future opponents. I also didn't bother to look at any P5s. We shall see what happens.

We could also play an away game at one of the other schools next year and just deal with 5 home games in 2018. I'd be okay if we did that with UH since we can travel there anyway.

No! 6 home games a year minimum every year.
We aren't ULM!

I agree, but we're in a pinch and it would even out with a 7 game home schedule in the future. Silver lining to having 5 home games next year is that since we've been pretty bad it's one less game for our attendance to suck as is usual at the end of the season.
