Hey Terp (or anyone else): Does anyone know why the Zags league schedule was so road heavy this year? Zags have 3 series at home & 6 on the road?

You would expect a 4/5 or 5/4 split every year. Just checked last year's schedule vs this year & see that the Zag's were 5/4 last year & alternated with everyone but LMU, playing them on the road for 2 straight years. Anyone know the background on that?

sittingon50, I went back and took a look at the Gonzaga announcement of their 2016 baseball schedule and this explanation of the WCC home and away schedule
this season was given.


After a bye in the first weekend of May, Gonzaga will head back down to Los Angeles for a three-game stint at Loyola Marymount. The Bulldogs' series against the Lions was originally scheduled to take place in Spokane this season, but it was moved to Los Angeles to allow GU to play at home during graduation weekend in 2017.

As a result, Gonzaga only plays a total of 12 home games this season.

Thanks Terp.

Figured it had to be something pretty important to give up some home games. Bet they didn't have to twist LMU's arms too hard.
