That's actually some pretty solid scheduling. They were on their way to making the tournament for the 4th year in a row. KenPom ranking isn't too sexy, but I'll always take a game against the top team in a conference.

The pod bonus play system experiment is over. Reportedly C-USA is moving forward with an 18 game schedule (Although there is still the possibility of a 16 game conference schedule). Under the 18 game plan, each team will maintain its travel partner (MTSU) and play the next 4 closest teams home and away (La Tech, Marshall, Southern Miss & WKU). Teams will play the other 8 conference members once.

Says alot about how spread out the conference is when WKU and Marshall are among our 4 closest opponents. Maybe they should also consider how easy or difficult it is to get to some schools. Marshall, from what I understand, is not an easy trip(plane followed by bus ride)...

It's not so much Marshall being close, but Marshall being WKU's travel partner.
Strictly speaking, outside of MTSU (travel partner), our 4 closest conference mates are WKU, Southern Miss, La Tech and Charlotte in that order. The problem are the Florida twins. They are travel partners and NO ONE is close to them. So, to give them their 4, it skews others.

Also, WKU just released and the schedule above has been updated.

Get ready for the La Tech whining when they realize they’ll be playing UTEP home and home under this format.

From process of elimination, we should play MTSU on 2/20.

Only 7 teams haven’t released a schedule yet: North Texas/ Rice, La Tech/USM, FAU/FIU, and MTSU.

On the week of 2/18 & 2/20, NT and Rice face ODU/Charlotte. La Tech/Southern Miss face UTEP/UTSA, and FAU/FIU faces Marshall/WKU.

Week of 12/31 & January 2nd would be either MTSU for one game, La Tech/USM, or NT/Rice
1/28 & 1/30 week could be any of the 7.
2/4 & 2/6 could only be FAU/FIU, NT/Rice, or MTSU
2/11 & 2/13 could only be NT/Rice or MTSU, so probably NT/Rice.
3/4 & 3/6 could be any of the 7. I’d guess FAU/FIU to avoid playing the two series very close together.

FAU has games on the December 31st/January 2nd week & February 11th/13th week. That only leaves 2/4 and 2/6 week and the 3/4 & 3/6 week.

North Texas/Rice plays La Tech/USM the opening week of conference play, so that only leaves 2/11 & 2/13. That series would have to be away to balance out the number of home/away games.

The other MTSU game will either be the opening week of CUSA play or the Wednesday or Thursday before the 2/20 game.

That completes the schedule. 04-rock
