Yep, no doubt the lady Dukes are seen as a quality opponent that helps the power rating for prominent programs while the men are seen as a drain to the NET rating. The willingness to play in Harrisonburg has to come with some reward for the power team.

However, road games against power schools are always available. You can certainly go overboard like Coppin state and play all 13 OOC games on the road to fund your athletic department, but to have zero speaks volumes about avoiding the best teams.

UVA is a great get at home and what the program planned for to open the new arena. There is no reason JMU couldn’t also play on the road at ACC, SEC, Big East, Big 10 schools every year. Pick a number for what you think is balanced. Play 1,2,3 on the road every year and put a little cash in the coffers while doing so.
Scrap the Alice Lloyd home “game” and go test your team. That is the only way to get better.

What we know - power programs play very few road games(if any) in the OOC. They are begging for opponents to come play them every year so they can generate revenue of $500k to $1MM per game.
CoC is usually pretty good at getting a couple of power teams each year on their schedule.

Fair point- I’d like to see us play one or two real non conference road tests per season. I guess the question is with COC Northeastern and others how many of those are one off/guaranteed games vs series (even 1 for 2). I’m cool with the one off pay day games and JMU had them last season that were unfortunately cancelled (Florida) and another as part of a tourney (GTech). I’d be cool with higher level Big East and A-10 even for one off pay days with the hopes that we would get more series as we continue to improve. I think here they were also looking for home inventory for next year so they wanted road games with a guaranteed return next year.

Interesting points in Mettlen’s tweets about the differences in men’s and women’s scheduling. I think Harts numbers on payday amounts for hoops are out of whack. Not sure if that’s what he meant but not in the hundreds of thousands.
