Interesting there are only 3 mid-week games (Kentucky, Marshall, Morehead St). Wonder if they will add a few more? Feels like they've a mid-week game with Ohio State & Rio Grande every year since forever.

I count 5 midweek games, think you mean only 3 midweek opponents?

I think the reason is because the MAC moved to 4 game series instead of 3. I personally hate this model but the extra conference games don't allow them to schedule those midweek games we're used to seeing (OSU, Rio Grande, etc.). 56 games is the limit for a D1 season if I'm not mistaken.

Agreed, not much flair. Nothing for recruits to point to and get excited about.

Not even a Spring "Trip".

I'm afraid the addition of the turf infield was a double edged sword. Great for lowering costs and limiting cancellations, but an easy excuse for the administration to take budget away from the program.

"Spring Trip" when was the last time the Bobcats have taken a "real" spring trip?.

Depends on what you classify as a "real" trip. There have been early season road trips to the south, I remember them vividly because we were stuck on a full bus for days at a time, typically during spring break.

I wouldn't classify those as real road trips compared to other programs such as Kent state, but at least we went down south. Mostly Georgia, Tennessee, Carolinas.

Adding the turf removed the need (in the administration's eyes) to travel south.

O.K, well, that is exactly what I meant, it's been over 25 years since they have taken a true southern spring break trip. What you are seeing this year (softball is in the same boat), there was no money available when schedules were being made due to the uncertainty of finances due to Covid. As for the smaller trips you used to take, that was purely, a decision by the coaching staff on how they spent their own monies.

I put quotes around "trip" in my original response.

They were more like long distance away games that happened to fall during the academic spring break, but at least it was warmer (sometimes).

I was on several of those "trips", seen games at App State with 28" of snow around the field.

You know you played in the MAC when you had to help the home team (UNC-Greensboro) shovel snow out of the outfield so we could get the double header in.

Softball is going to Texas, the other Athens, and playing a tournament in Louisville. Those first two are very passable spring trips that I'd love the baseball team to take. That Louisville tournament would actually get people excited to tune into the baseball team.

They can't find one decent school to play between Kentucky down to the panhandle in Florida that would be a pseudo spring trip to find exciting?

Due to Covid budget issues softball had to pull back their spring plans in a big way. Next year they plan to go back to California

I did a poor job wording things.

What I meant was, even with budget issues, I'd kill to see a similar schedule for the baseball team. The 2022 softball schedule would probably be the best baseball schedule this century.

I donít disagree with that! Reality is though, softball has a bigger budget and can afford to do those types of trips. While baseball puts its money into half-turf fields they wonít let anyone play on.
