    I don't think it's a good sign for this to happen in the middle of TV negotiations.

    BB is staying on until his replacement is found (earliest is October). I'd say the TV deals will be done.

    here is an op/ed piece on C-USA TV deals http://g5conferencenews.blogspot.com...-update_8.html
    and another http://g5conferencenews.blogspot.com...-reins-on.html

    I agree. I've always thought that is one reason Banowsky was so vocal in his support of UAB.

    This will surely backfire. I can see it now. UL-L beats UAB and Toledo in non conference play and gets "snubbed" because ULM blows their doors off in Laffayette in front of all of ULM's recruits.

    Yes, he might want to mind his own business, cuz the majority of the G5s HAVE to play money games to support their athletics program$.

    Mr. Peanut's leadership phrase used to be "WAC- Play Up", but that has now morph'ed into "Slumbelt- Play Down".

    Hmmmm.

    New C-USA TV contract: Outgoing Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky took questions from the media during media day Wednesday too.The league’s current television contract with Fox and the American Sports Network will expire in June 2016. Banowsky, who will stay in his current role until his replacement is hired, said he expects the new deal to be announced “by the middle” of the upcoming academic year (2015-16).
    “We have a team that’s working on it,” he said. “We have an agency out of Raleigh (North Carolina) that does these things. They’re in discussions with all of our TV partners, and we’re starting to get some structure around (the new contract).”
    Banowsky also didn’t rule out the possibility of a new TV partner, such as ESPN, coming on board with C-USA either.
