    We better be ready by 2023. I hope we have a good 5-year plan.

    TMac probably thinks we're gunning for SWAC or SLC membership.

    One of the suggested new criteria is whether the fan base is willing to pay to watch rather than market size. This may even run contrary to market size. The more fans (or alumni) you have who live too far to travel the better. They will want to pay to see their team instead of even local P5 teams. It may become more market driven. I don't care about SEC games unless they're playing Tech or maybe a conference mate. I really don't give a rat's _ss about watching LSU play Alabama or Georgia play Florida and wouldn't pay to watch them. They will get 100,000+ in the stadium but that's 100,000+ who aren't watching on TV or whatever. ESPN should have a pretty good data bank of who watches out of area games on ESPN3. I don't know if they could track how many watch individual games on Game Plan but it shouldn't be hard on ESPN3.

    Nothing to track from ESPN GamePlan or ESPN FullCourt since those TV packages have not existed the last two football or basketball seasons.

    ESPN has become as bad of liars and liberal as CNN of late. Not sure what to believe from ESPN anymore.

    They've been all about liberal politics for many years. Any PC cause at all, just mark them down for it.

    Re: Conference realignment likely on hold until 2023

    by 2023 you will see some shuffling of MWC, CUSA and AAC - the power conference will have to cut ties with some of their schools or bring in some new schools. Either way, if Tech does not screw up majorly between now and 2020, we will be fine. The realignment decisions will be made in 2020 and announced that fall.

    I would bet a couple of schools get called up to help even out the numbers in the P5 levels. Already been advised that Tulane has been told "thanks but no thanks" from the B12 - so who moves up is a crap shoot - Memphis maybe? Marshall is looking hard at going back to the MAC.

    We want two AAC schools to move up to have a real secure shot at that conference - but again, it will be some type of realignment with what is left of the MWC, CUSA and AAC.

    With Tulane being told "thanks but no thanks", will we have the votes to get in to the AAC? I would think Tulane would vote no to keep us out and I have gotten the feeling over the years reading articles that the others do not look favorably on being conference mates with TECH.

    Didn't they vote in favor of us joining C-USA?

    We can dream of getting in the AAC when we double our current budget.

    We are having cake walks to raise money and our AD refuses to hobnob with the common folk.

    Why wouldn't they? They knew they were leaving. We were in C-USA together what? One year.
