OT: UL Monroe has 0 OOC games after 2019
Saw on Twitter where it's "speculation" that UL Monroe could be making changes in football as they have no OOC games scheduled after the 2019 season. Most if not all FBS teams have their schedules already planned out the next 5 years so trying to schedule FBS OOC games could signal they are possibly dropping football or downgrading to FCS

They’ve only reached one bowl game in their school history. It’s alarming that ULM has zero games scheduled in 2020 and beyond. The future looks murky.

Yeah, that seems like a real issue. At this point, there wont be many openings left. And they darn sure wont be able to get many home games against non-FCS this late.

Wow, that does seem telling. I think I remember reading that they typically only have 5 home games a year.

ULM just doesn't have the money to be competitive in FBS football

Or any other sport, for that matter.

If they go the Idaho route, it's better for everyone. They can possibly start winning a few games, and we become the only FBS program in northern Louisiana (although we basically already are).

Added bonus: we no longer have to listen to outsiders yelling "Tech and ULM should play every year" ?

Is there some sort of Louisiana thing in play? UL Lafayette has no games in 2020, two games in 2021 (@Arizona State, Ohio) and nothing after that.

La Tech had 2018 and 2019 filled, 2 games in 2020, 3 in 2021, and 2 in 2022.

Not like a statewide moratorium on scheduling; I could have phrased that better. But it seems odd that most of the Sun Belt is scheduled into the 2020s but Monroe has zero games and Lafayette has two. I presume Lafayette doesn't have any existential issues w/r/t football.
