The conference schedule for next season was released. No divisions so there is unbalanced schedule for everyone. And in perhaps the biggest shocker of the day Liberty takes the shaft on the unbalanced part. Our 5 road series’ are against the top 2 teams from last year’s divisions FGCU, KSU, EKU, Lipscomb and then Stetson. We get no good conference teams at home. I’m all for 30 games against the 10 best conference teams but not all on the road. Oh well, just go win.

I would expect that when we are a lame duck program as far as the conference is concerned. Why not favor the teams that are sticking around? It shouldn't surprise us.

Yeah, I’m not surprised. Nothing to get up in arms about. Our 5 road series are against 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7 in the final RPI standings last season. Which is ridiculous. But like you said we are the lame duck.

Honestly I like the challenge. 75% of rpi is SOS so it should help us make the tournament assuming we win most of those games.

We also have Duke February 21st in Durham and March 28th in Lynchburg. That's 4 ACC games already it'd be great if we could get UNC, NCSU, WF, and VT to get us to 12 vs ACC and then maybe a series against the SEC or Big 12 like years past.

The rest of the Lone Star State doesn't consider DFW part of the state. But point well taken.

Lost a ton of HRs to graduation. Not sure if that will be replaced. Starter looked good and overall, pitching okay.

I’m a little concerned about what could potentially be an alarming lack of power in this lineup.

Whether it's AD Ian McCaw or Scott Jackson, out of conference scheduling has been excellent for the past several years. Very regional, but a solid mix of ACC RPI boosting opportunities and some in-state schools. Between this out of conference slate and drawing a short straw with the unbalanced conference schedule, there's not much room for this team to pause and catch their breath.
