And I updated the list on the first post of this thread: viewtopic.php?p=15966#p15966

So, again it looks like this year's schedule is pretty much the "mirror" of the men's schedule. No double-headers, no weekends of having both teams playing. Still not a fan of it.

 
Would many fans around WIU prefer to have some double headers?  What are other parts of the schedule would you tinker?

Personally, I'd like a few. Doesn't have to be every weekend, but like, maybe the weekend each team plays their travel partner for a start. For example, we play St. Thomas on 1/21 and 2/18 (both Saturdays). Because we're travel partners with them, we don't play another team on Thursday that week. Instead of having our men and women in different places, have them in the same place. Have both of WIU's teams play in Macomb on 1/21...like, 3 PM and 6 PM or something, then have both teams go play at St. Thomas on 2/18. Won't really change the travel aspect (except that in some cases they might be able to share transportation), but it would also change things up a bit...let our mens and women's teams have an opportunity to cheer each other on a bit, etc.

The Saturday conference double-headers were very popular.
