Based on my math, I put you guys at 4-8 this year with wins against Langston, SELA, McMurry, and Nichols. The toss up game is the PVAMU game, but I picked it as a loss only because it's on the road.

 

 

Prairie View game is a home game for Lamar.

 

But, seeing that you are a SAM alum, I can understand your lack of reading skills.

You've been lurking here for a while just so you could tell us what our 2012 record would be. Thanks.

I'm not worried about any prediction of this schedule as we are going to be young next year. 21 Freshman! I'm more interested in how the team plays down the stretch and 2013 and 2014.

Playing USL (ULL) & McNeese in the same year! Brings it back to the good ole days!

 

Looks like we will be keeping at least 1 season ticket holder.

Nope, I've been lurking because there hasn't been anything worth commenting on really. I'm not a huge basketball fan, so I just skim over the basketball topics, and I don't follow SLC baseball at all, so I skip those. I know nothing about the players you guys recruit, so I don't comment on them.

 

This is the first football-related post that has interested me.

 

It's never too early to predict wins and losses. Lamar will win 6 games next year!

 

6 wins is DEFINITELY attainable, with out a doubt. The PVAMU could swing your way for sure, I don't think anyone ever really knows how good the SWAC schools will be. And maybe even one other SLC school depending on injuries, location, and all that jazz. 6 wins is definitely a possibility, which is great for year 3

Am I the only one that thinks this schedule is absolutely awesome? Playing UL-L at their place to start it off is definitely a step up over TX College at home. Plus, a good second game opponent in PV A&M is great to see at Provost-Umphrey. Well done, Woodard & Co.!

It is a pretty decent schedule, the Hawaii game helps get that extra game for the season. The NAIA team sucks, but it is what it is, at least you get an FCS school at home, albeit the SWAC, still DI.

 

I'd imagine next year, you'd see 3 DI schools and only 1 sub-DI team.

 

All in all, still a good schedule, not the best teams for home games, but it's whatever, PUS should have some great crowds for a good chunk of the season. It's nice that the SHSU/McNeese games alternate each season, so you'll always get at least one rival at home each year.

Mike, I guess that means there is no buy out since we'll play them next year? Also, does that mean we play Texas A&M and La Tech in the same season?

 

 

No buy out but Lamar will get a higher payout for the game since they agreed to push it back. aTm is on the schedule in 2014, it'll be Oklahoma State and LA Tech in 2013.

I would not call this schedule awesome. It's a start, I actually prefer playing these lower tier FBS teams like ULL over the likes of a TAMU or Oklahoma State, so that is a plus. But I don't like seeing two sub DI's on the schedule, if they get it down to 1 I'll say it's a good schedule. If we ever drop them completely it will be a great schedule.

Thanks for throwing us a bone, but I don't think we'll be rivals until we can actually compete with Sam. McNeese is another story. They're established, but both of their previous wins against us weren't incredibly convincing.

While I share that notion, I think it is what we get for now. To be honest, I don't know why a school like TAMU or OKST would schedule us. We don't exactly help their chances to make it to a BCS bowl. I think eventually we will do away with one of the sub-DI games, but as an FCS program, we should pretty much expect one to be on the schedule. I was just really surprised to get PV A&M to come to our house in only our third year.

It's all relative. Every school has 1 main rival and 1 secondary rival. For us, it was always SFA and TSU-SM.

 

For Lamar, McNeese is definitely THE rival, but outside of them, it doesn't seem like Lamar has a secondary rival. With TSU leaving the SLC, a lot of Bearkat fans look down south to Lamar as their new secondary rival.

 

I'm okay with it not being competitive, but I'm just a tad biased. I know the day when y'all finally win will be HUGE. It's only a matter of time. We can't win EVERY game from here on out.

SOS means nothing to the BCS as it stands, all they care about is getting their 6 wins against DI opponents. If the Aggies go 6-6, they'll be in a bowl game while a 7-5 team gets left on the sideline. Look at Temple a few years back. There were some 6-6 teams that got in over an 8 win (I think) Temple team. Why? Because the bowl games are about money, and they want teams that will bring a crowd.

I see. Thanks for clearing that up as I don't totally get all the quirks in the BCS system. My point, however, was that regardless of the fact that we have those two sub-DI games, this schedule is still better than I expected in our third year. I actually like the game against UL-L over La Tech. I think with those games (sub-DI) being ones the fans will get to watch wins in the home stadium, we will keep the fence-riders interested.

I just realized that with the Hawaii game, taking the 12th game means no bye week for the Cards. Any concerns for you guys there? I know last year there were A LOT of key injuries on both sides of the ball. I wonder if the coaching staff and training facility is ready for a 12 week season so early on in the program.
