so why are we stuck with only 6 home games most years?
Good question. You think as a traditionally lower end BCS program we'd be able to get a better deal from CUSA programs that would feel like itd be a great shot at a win over a BCS team.
Our 9 game conference schedule also doesnt help. Instead of having 4 conference road games every year, now we have 5 every other year, and with iowa also being a road game on the opposite year, we set a ceiling of at most 7 home games before we even get to our other 2 nonconference games.
This is also why it bugs me when people say 'we're scared of X team if we buy out the return game'... no, we're just doing what everyone else is and trying to maximize the number of home games we have.
