    At least TMac didn't tweet out he is sending them a demand notice. The guy is learning.

    The Big 12 is on notice saying they want to keep a full schedule. Doubt that is the case now that all the others have went another way. I hope the Big 12 decides soon so the G5 can react with all available information. In an ideal world the G5 commissioners try to react in unison.

    I couldn't agree with you more. We have to keep a sense of humor during all of this. I think someone overheard Greg Sankey saying he wanted a play-off that included the SBC and MAC.

    I found this helpful in explaining why these P5 conference are more comfortable with Georgia/Missouri than Georgia/Georgia Tech.

    @brettmcmurphy: Conference USA will keep 8-game league schedule & allow schools to play as many nonconference games as they want, sources told @Stadium. Also, it could be possible for C-USA teams to play each other as "nonconference" opponents if schools need more games, sources said

    Twitter:
    Start dates:

    -SEC Sept 26th
    -ACC Sept 7-12
    -B1G ?
    -Big 12 Aug 29th

    Group of 5 leagues could load up weeks 0-3 and have a chance to gain some prime TV spots.

    With the Vandy game getting nixed and a fair chance that Baylor gets nixed too, do you think that CUSA will reshuffle the schedule or does Tech try to schedule another home game or two to fill those gaps? Maybe we can bring back the Prairie View game? LOL

    Prairie View's conference canceled their season.

    CUSA has stated that schools can play 12 games if they want and can fill their open dates however they're able.

    The reason G5ís havenít done the same thing yet is that they canít. (It will happen soon though)

    This will financially kill our neighbors to the East who had TWO SEC money games this year and need them to pay the bills. Say goodbye to 2 million dollars of your athletic budget.

    It's going to be tough.

    I really don't know if it's worth trying to play 12 or not. If the Big 12 goes conference only, you'd have no option for a money game. And while it'd be great to bank some home games for future seasons, everyone will have that same thought and be angling for the away game in 2020 among other G5 conferences. Because at the best of times a home game doesn't really make us that much money, and you can't expect attendance to go up during this whole thing (even without national, state, parrish/county, or school restrictions on attendance) you'd probably rather play the road game and then get your half of the 1-for-1 in the future when fans are hopefully more likely to attend.

    And lots of FCS conferences are canceling (like the SWAC) so you probably don't want to load up there either (nor would you want to - again, what would be the point if attendance is probably way down anyway). Plus the more OOC games you schedule the less flexibility you have if there is a temporary disruption to the conference schedule. That's part of the reason the P5 conferences are playing conference only. If weeks 3-5 get cancelled, you have more power to reschedule a conference game if you don't have to plan around OOC.

    The only potential for the G5s to reduce losses might be to load up those early weeks and try to negotiate some better tv money. But so much of the conference tv rights are locked in, I'm not even sure how much that would be possible.
