    The fact that Pioneer league now gets an auto invite as of 2013, it makes no sense not to schedule them ALWAYS over a D2 school. The fact multiple PFL teams are within a short car ride and several are MVC conference or historical rivals, it's just moronic not to. IMO, I'm one that believes our non-con should be pretty damn easy to schedule.

    1 money game vs FBS
    1 game vs PFL, preferrably Valpo or Butler
    1 game vs EIU - historical rival, good FCS conference and long time historical rival that is a short car ride away for return trips.

    In the years you have the 4th, I'd love to take fliers against other top FCS conference teams that we've never played OR, if it is at home, close FCS schools where we can get travelers inside the stadium to buy tickets and concessions.

    For those that say that isn't a difficult non-con... I don't care. IMO, MVFC teams should schedule akin to how SEC schools schedule their non-con slates. It should all essentially be a warm up for the murderers row that comes in MVFC play.


    I'd add Dayton or Drake to the Pioneer FBall League options

    Horrible hire from an optics perspective... be interested to see how long it takes before he shits himself (again)

    Pelini hasn't worked wonders at YSU... time will tell if Philandering Bobby Pitino... I mean Petrino works out in Springfield

    Are we not playing EIU in 2021 and 2022? I see we are playing @EKU and @NW in 2021, but there is no mention of EIU.

    Edit: I guess we are not. Their schedule is full in 2022. They have an FBS game and UTC coming up for a return game. They play the Redbirds every year which leaves us out.

    Going through other schools' schedules we should either schedule Austin Peay or Tennessee Tech for a home game on 9/4/21 and an away game on 9/3/22. Either school would work although TTU is probably the most winnable. In 2022 we would still be a game short. A game with a PFL school would make sense except they are already all taken up. Our athletic dept just sucks I swear. Way to not be on top of things.

    No one is going to play us in Terre Haute in 2022 and wait until 2025 for a return game so we might as well just pencil in a D2 for that year as well.

    Although let's be honest I could totally see us just scheduling a D2 school in 2021 instead and leaving ourselves 2 games short in 2022.

    Sounds weird. Usually athletes and coaches are the most humble people in society.

    This actually happens. Liberty 2014 and 2017 is an example. I think when we last played WKU it was a return trip from when they were still FCS. which is why we didnt get paid (to beat their ass)
