    Re: Feb 16-18 vs. Northern Colorado

    ESPN would be missing out on the ad revenue if we went with a 2-camera setup with a PxP person and put it on another platform. So they insisted on ESPN+ being the exclusive home to any digital...

    Re: Basketball court ideas

    I'll add to the list. The women's game against the U.S. Olympic team in 1996. The Amy Grant concert in 1989. Standing room only for both.

    Not Francis Thompson now. Francis Thompson in 1987.

    Yeah. But Savoie never interviewed. He made a brief presentation in a "meeting" held on the ULL campus, but that was it. He had the job years before when Ray Authement was diagnosed with cancer. ...

    UL-Lafayette's president was the system head when he got the job without going through the interview. They're not going to go through a long screening process if one of their own wants the position.

    Re: New President!!

    Paul Miller was the AD. It was in 1987 shortly after Reneau became president. At least $500,000 was needed to expand the stadium to over 30,000 seats to meet the I-A requirement.

    Dr. Wood's comments about this at the Tech tour stops were all about the look-in increasing the money.

    You will see in my original post (#19) that I didn't say anything about a swap where some CUSA east schools would move to the Belt. I said that the schools in the SBC east want to jettison the 4 SBC...

    Here is some background:

    The cash portions of the 2 deals are relatively close.

    It's an open secret.

    ODU's president has been talking about it since the day they became a CUSA member - someday creating an eastern conference with James Madison as a member.

    Re: Colorado back to Big XII

    Good post.

    It really depends on how much chaos occurs.

    In the end, the one thing I think happens is CUSA adding Belt schools, as CUSA will likely have some openings.

    The SBC East schools...
