    WKU Releases 2017-2018 Schedule

    Finally released it last week. Kind of forgot to post it in here. I just know everyone was anxious. Kinda a "meh" schedule but not terrible. Battle 4 Atlantis will be fun. A good amount of home games. I do not like that we are ever playing Austin Peay on the road. Next year will be good, with Wisconsin and Ohio playing return games at Diddle, as well as Belmont.

    Just curious, why do you not like the road game at Austin Peay? Seems like a good home-and-home rivalry for two solid programs located reasonably close to one another.

    Looks like at Ohio U. or at Marshall is the closest The Jake comes to playing near home.

    It appears that Huntington is 149 miles from Covington, 157 for Athens. BG is about 190 ish and likely a quicker trip than Athens.

    Don't mind playing them, but as a program we shouldn't be playing road games there in my opinion. For contrast, UKY/UL hardly ever leave their home gyms in OOC except maybe once per year to play other blue bloods. Playing on the road at AP is a lose/lose. Win, doesn't help. Lose, kills RPI. Loss of ticket sales probably offsets cost of playing there. I know EKU is a comparable school to AP, but at least EKU is a historical rival, so playing home/homes with them is OK.
