Sept. 29 - Marshall*......60% L
Oct. 6 ? BYE

Oct. 20 ? Old Dominion*...50% W
Oct. 27 ? FIU*.......50% W
Nov. 3 ? at Middle Tennessee*......75% L
Nov. 10 ? at Florida Atlantic*......75 L
Nov. 17 ? UTEP*.....50% W
Nov. 24 ? at Louisiana Tech* ......80% L

Best case 5-7
Worse case 1-11
Most likely case 4-8 or 3-9

50% at Charlotte seems wrong. That should be a win. 50% home for ODU seems wrong too, I expect you to win that one too

Not one area of Western's football team improved over the last 13 games...

NOT ONE

QB is gone and the best defensive player is trying his luck in the NFL and two Sr 3 year starters are gone from a offensive line that got worse the more games they were coached.

Hell even the FCS game is 50-50

I'd certainly hope so.

14 is such a stupid number of teams for a football conference. I mean, I love you all dearly and all, and I'm so honored to share this fine conference with your schools, but when you don't play a conference mate for 6 years, that's a problem (although they may not stick with this system of keeping the same cross-divisional opponents for two years at a time which would speed the rotation up).

I wonder why they're doing it this way?

My theory would be that the initial thought was a 16-team conference...THEN the TV deal came out after the middle round of teams were invited but before the final round of invites went out. Kind of an "Oh Sh*t!" moment.

OR, they realized how the big market strategy and grabbing as many big market areas as possible made ZERO difference...or actually hurt the conference in terms of national interest.

Just thinking out loud.

I guess.

In 2022 they'll be forced to mix it up, but then are they just going to run through the cycle again (but with slightly different teams)?

None of that. Next year will be the first time the league has had a stable membership for more than two years since 2010 to 2012.

After all the defections and additions were over UAB then dropped football which further screwed up the league schedule. And then they added it back.

Sure. I get that it's all UAB's fault and I agree.

But you don't need two stable years, you need one stable year to put a plan in place.

There isn't any plan they're going to do next year that they couldn't have started this year.

But if they do have a better rotation set-up that will kick in after we balance out all our return games this season, then that'd be great. Otherwise, the already too-long periods between conference teams playing one another are going to be even stupidly longer.

That is an inviting schedule. The west had better hope either MU or Tech can beat you guys at home otherwise it could be a walk for you.

Heck, for basketball they just throw all of our games in a formula and get a printout, according to one of our coaches
