4-23 may be looking good with this slate
Texas, Georgia Tech, Texas Tech, Baylor, Louisiana Tech, Northwestern, Utah State, TCU, SMU. That's a murderers row of games before the conference gets underway. If Flaska were returning a veteran team that had enjoyed some success last season, the schedule might be somewhat feasible. But after finishing 4-23 last year and with about a half-dozen new players on the roster, it's daunting. Throw in a tournament in Fairbanks, Alaska, and it gets even worse.
The good news is that the Gents should be battle tested, if not road-weary, by the time Valparaiso rolls into town on Jan. 4.
Expect Centenary's schedule to be less daunting in the future.
