    Who is Daniel Figurelli & Should I Care?

    Daniel Figurelli @FigurelliSports tweeted last night: NIU, W. Kentucky, S. Miss and La Tech have all been contacted by the AAC. S. Miss is the legit option that I know of https://t.co/KcNDnPVVGu

    I know Cinncy & to a lesser extent Houston are being talked about for the Big 12. So the AAC would probably be looking for a replacement. I've never heard of Figurelli but I'm not a big sports media guy. Does anyone know anything about this?

    Google him and looked at his tweets. Seems to be a Houston guy.

    I would love this to happen as I want to be in a conference with Houston, SMU, Tulane, Tulsa and SMiss.

    As soon as we joined all of those would leave and we would be joined by the same group we're with now.

    Most of the media I've been listening to in Texas thinks the Big12 will pass on Houston. Doesn't give them anything they don't already have. All Houston does is split the revenue pie one more time. I am hearing a lot of talk about Cincy though. They want WVU to have a travel partner and there is the usual BYU chatter as well.

    I personally think BYU would be the smart play here as it brings the Big12 a massive national following and BYU is one of the only schools with P5 attendance, facilities, fan base, that is actually available. It could also be argued that it is on the fringe if not barely outside their current geographic footprint.

    On another note, as much as I think a strong USM is good for CUSA, if they begin struggling again in football and continue their MBB woes it could really help us. It's not like AAC will be choosing them over us because of their Metro Area.

    Folks in Memphis claim they are aligned with Cincy for a package deal.

    Being at the crossroads of SEC country seems to make them a favored selection.

    Wouldn't shock me. I would imagine being in the Big12 would really jump start recruiting for an already strong MBB program too.

    I think they're gonna be sorely disappointed.

    Memphis just needs to worry about coming up with $10.6 million to buy out their basketball coach and getting their attendance up so they don't get kicked out of the FedEx Forum.

    Maybe, but remember, it wasn't too long ago that the CUSA Memphis Tigers were outdrawing the NBA Grizzlies by a LOT. Memphians LOVE their Basketball Tigers (when they're winning).

    I read that Memphis is teetering just over 6K in turnstile count this season. If they drop below 6K, their contract says they can get kicked out. If they don't come up with $10.6 MM to buy out Pastner, then they are definitely in jeopardy next season.

    What would the FedEx Forum put in their place? Of what benefit would it be to the Forum to kick them out? No offense because I like Memphis but it's not NYC. Is there that much demand for the FedEx Forum ?

    Maybe the cost to operate it is greater than what they bring in?
