McNeese sports insider Jim Gazzolo is also reporting that the Cowboys basketball team is having a hard time finding opponents that want to play them.

Head Assistant coach Brandon Chambers has been tasked with filling out the schedule tot the McNeese basketball program. He told Gazzolo that he has reached out to everyone and nobody wants to come play in Lake Charles. According to the article, they even tried to extend the contact of one of the bigger schools they played last season at home and the coach basically said he didn't sign up to play Coach Wade.

It's nice to see that teams like Alabama and Mississippi State have the los huevos to add the Bayou Bandits to their schedule, but we want you to show us you have the testicular fortitude to do a home and home contract.

It seems the better the Pokes get, the harder it will be to book home games.  They not only fear McNeese basketball team but the Poke Nation as well rocking the building to it's core every home game.
