    Give me ASN TV over Campus Insiders internet streaming everyday and twice on Sundays. This is very bad news for next year and future TV deals.

    Agreed. We need to get our games on TV. Didn't we used to have games on Fox Sports? A few of those plus some ESPN2/U/News would be great. Don't care if we have to just give them away at this point, we need exposure.

    "We" as in who?

    The WAC and the C-USA conferences have had games on those networks. "We" have not done a thing as far as building a local or statewide or regional TV network.

    Yeah, thus would really hurt if our people has gone out and taken the opportunity to build a regional or even statewide network of stations that would air the available games.

    Fox Sports? No thanks. If you remember Fox Sports did offer C-USA a strong financial package much better than what we signed for (many C-USA haters ignore this), but thankfully C-USA ADs said "No thanks." Fox Sports wanted our football games on either Tuesday nights, Wednesday nights, or Saturday mornings. That exposure ain't worth it. Those time slots are detrimental to our fan base and game day environment. Give me any obscure TV channel that allows us to play football on Saturday nights and broadcasts a lot of our basketball games. Yes, the MAC makes more TV money than C-USA now, but did you see their 2017 football schedules? The MAC doesn't play a single Saturday football game during the month of November. Let's not become the MAC of the South and sellout to ESPN.

    Ah, didn't know Fox tried that. Definitely don't want to become the MAC.

    Someone just posted this on the C-USA board. Not sure who to believe right now.

    RE: The end of ASN?
    http://www.herdfans.com/12thman/index.php?topic=95979.0

    From a former ESPN employee and Marshall alum..

    While this story is being reported everywhere, it isn't exactly accurate.......

    ASN isn't going off the air and it isn't disappearing, in fact, look for it to add up to 10 million homes rather quickly and add an OTT app.....

    Sinclair is NOT putting it out of business or selling it, it is however about to take in a partner to manage the network.....I've been a consultant to ASN for two years and the management team has been the singular problem in the network being successful.....the operations will move, management team wil be gone and replaced by a new team that will be chosen by the managing partner, but Sinclair will still be the major or at least a major player in the Network.....this should be seen as a solid opportunity for the rights owners that currently have contracts with ASN....... while this may not be the best solution for ASN, it is a giant step in the right direction.

    This and other articles are premature and mostly inaccurate (but have some facts correct)...... no deal is as yet final, but one should be finalized soon.

    The people responsible have Cox in Ruston so they are probably fine with the current mess. Any pleas for them to help fans without Cox access are referred to Learfield. We've never had a Learfield connection that understands the process.
