    Sticky: Re: Comprehensive Conference Realignment Thread

    This would be a good get for the MWC with or without BYU. Not sure if it's a good move for Gonzaga or not. If it's just them, BYU is fine. If the MWC decides it wants to go to a hybrid model, though,...

    Re: New TV Rights Thread (2018)

    Looks to me like most of their games are going behind the ESPN+ paywall so maybe less visibility.

    Hmmm. I can't find any details on what that Sun Belt deal is worth.

    Re: UTEP Coach Kugler Gone

    I'm not sure he would, to be honest. At this point, I'm not sure anyone this side of a superstar could. Except Mark Mangino.

    But I guess I could maybe see one of those schools making an offer, for...

    Re: UTEP Coach Kugler Gone

    Rumor is that Sonny Dykes wants the UTEP job.

    Regarding Skip... I think you guys are pretty safe. His tenure at USF will make any P5 school think twice and I don't see him leaving for another G5...

    Re: MacLeod on Upcoming Media Contract

    The Big Sky Conference has a channel on Pluto TV that's running. G5 conferences that have games that won't run anywhere else could possibly consider that. I'm sure it doesn't pay anything, but I was...

    Re: Is the Big 12 Dead?

    Boren himself did tremendous damage to the league. If Oklahoma hadn't flirted with the Pac-12 in 2011, Missouri probably wouldn't have bolted. A&M leaving hurt, but Missouri leaving was devastating.

    Re: Is the Big 12 Dead?

    I have TCU and WVU on the list of likely vulnerables as well. I don't see where they get picked up. I doubt they end up in the AAC or MWC. There should be at least five and they can pay for three (or...

    Re: Wichita State to AAC?

    Perhaps. I've long thought adding a complement to Navy was a good idea to round it out to 12. I was thinking maybe St Louis, but Wichita State is better.

    Their baseball program is good, too. But I think to take basketball is necessarily to take everything (but football). I also think geography works in their favor as we could use another western...

    Re: Wichita State to AAC?

    I think the invitation is actually contingent on them *not* adding football. At least among fans, we like the idea as long as they don't have football but aren't interested in a newbie football...
  14. Re: American Sports Network to cease operations at the end of March

    Campus Insider's relationship with Twitter is responsible for more than half of the Conference USA games that I watched. Same with MWC. Seems to me a pretty good way to get the games out there. I was...

    Re: Op/Ed: The Independence Bowl is in trouble

    Around 2007-08, Conference USA actively approached the Independence Bowl about getting its #2 team, starting in 2010. The Independence Bowl really wanted two BCS conferences, and so declined pretty...

    South Florida was also a member, after the GMW split away. Not sure you could use the exact same name because so many aren't there, but some variation to draw on that history just seems like a good...

    Re: Wichita State to AAC?

    I'd have preferred they bite the bullet and go with something Metro-related (Metro 12, Metro East, Big Metro, something along those lines). Yeah, there'd still be UConn and ECU, but it still would...

    Hopefully a conference with a better name. (My general sense is that in ten years most of what we call the AAC will be in a conference called the Big 12, and Conference USA in a conference called The...

    Re: Wichita State to AAC?

    I couldn't agree more about the name. Hate it. I don't mind the logo, though, if it's going to have that name.

    As far as WSU goes, though, they are evidently looking to make a move, which suggests...

    Wichita State to AAC?

    This seems like it could be a win-win. I'd thought it might be good to add a complement to Navy, but I would thinking St Louis. I didn't realize Wichita State was dissatisfied in the MVC. (Though...

    West Virginia was never a good fit for him. I was surprised when he chose WVU over Pitt. WVU may have been the more prestigious job at the time, but the guy likes local action and that's not...
