Don't focus on the 2 OOC home games. Focus on the 4 AAC games. Houston and UCF both coming to town.

Really? The only games our departed AD had any control over are the OOC games - and this is what we get? But you're right, I'll have to focus on the conference games when UT-M & AR St are the fine OOC home games we have.

I thought we were talking the football schedule - not the control of the former AD.
All in all, our home schedule is pretty good.

RE: Tigers home football schedule
The conference is unquestionably the strongest non P5 and probably stronger than either the ACC or PAC12. One loss gets us the NY6 spot. Two losses gets us into a shot bowl game that doesn't pay.

Messing around with a schedule that possibly gets us two losses isn't smart at this point. We have passed Boise. IF we make the NY6 game again we will pass UCF.

We are building a top 15 brand right now. We have to do everything to avoid taking a step back.

We do need to beat UCF to pass them, tho. If they beat us, but lose to Cincy again & we beat Cincy twice again, still hard to argue that we passed them. Gonna be TOUGH, tho, with a difficult conference schedule. We were a made chip-shot FG away (Tulsa) last year from not having such a special season. Having said that, I am planning on 14-0!

If we beat them and repeat our NY6 appearance we have officially passed them. If we are going to have a down year it will be next year. We lose a lot after this season.

On defense we lose 12 major contributors. On offense we lose White and virtually all of our wide receiver and tight end production. We bring back 27 total current receptions after next season. We are for sure going to have some of the kids step up, but the time really really is now.

RE: Tigers home football schedule
Some people love to bring up the missed FG by Tulsa.
But they leave out the bogus overturned call at Temple.
We were a bad replay away from something REALLY special.

Absolutely. Plus Cincinnati and Boise also had close calls.

don't be surprised if we run the conference we may get a playoff spot based on our preseason ranking - weird season possibly coming up

If we only play conference games and then run the conference we will deserve a invitational playoff spot! This conference will be a top 4 conference and the Tigers will have played the toughest conference schedule.

I'm sure you will be able to get tickets to Tulane, SMU and UTSA. Fans at their games have been practicing social distancing their entire existence.

Tulane won the 1935 Sugar Bowl - I'm sure they packed them in for that surely?

OK, who sets the OOC football schedule?

Word on the street is that we would play the Redskins and the Cowboys and that the Eagles are interested. 01-wingedeagle

Point is, we're talking about the entire home schedule. Not just the OOC. It's a decent home schedule. Leave the blame game out for a minute and you will see that.

Again, it's not off topic to understand how the schedule is determined. We all know we play a conference schedule of 7 games. It's set & can be reasonably projected year to year without any input from our AD. Therefore it is incumbent upon our AD to project the relative weak years & supplement strong OOC games in those years - since it is a primary responsibility of the AD to raise & increase revenues to support the program.

Wrong again.

Our FCS games are just as likely to bring in 40K+ than a P5 opponent.

Therefore it is incumbent upon our AD to project the relative weak years & supplement strong OOC games in those years - since it is a primary responsibility of the AD to raise & increase revenues to support the program.

There are three and only three instances where you want the OOC schedule to be stronger.

1. The conference is weak
2. The G5 gets a second spot in the next 4 bowl games a tier below the NY6. These games pay a few million dollars
3. We make the NY6 3 or 4 times in a row and want to make a big playoff push

Cincinnati had almost nothing to gain by playing Ohio State on their field. If they beat them, most would have said Ohio State was no good, and even if Ohio State is very good, it gives Cincinnati very low odds of running the table and making the playoff. Worse, I am 100% sure that Cincinnati would have kicked Boise's ass, but even if they would have beaten us in the AAC Championship game, they probably wouldn't have jumped Boise.

So what's good for us and good for Boise is also good for any G5.

This brings us to my second point. There are around 10 bowls that pay pretty well. IF a G5 team ranked in the top 20 was given a 2nd spot in one of those bowls, then you go for it. That way even if you schedule Ohio State and lose 2 games, you can go to a bowl that pays between $4-9 million. That would be much more fair than being a top 25 team with 2 losses playing in a $1.5 million bowl while a 5 loss P5 team gets a $4 million payout in a better bowl.

Last, but not least, if we manage to make it this year and next year we have nothing left to prove and we might as well go for it.

The way things are set up right now is exactly how it needs to be set up. We are a top 5 conference in the entire country, way ahead of any other G5 conference. If we stay even with the MWC and have one more loss than any of the other 4, we get the spot. All the while we continue to build our brand as a conference.

The remote reward for scheduling one more quality opponent is not worth the massive loss that would happen if we lost that game. Unless winning that game gets you into the playoff; which is a 5% chance, there is no reason to play it.
