Thanks for your clarification to update your previous post, FSA. Lets all remember that there are lots of other sports as well at stake. So those Texas St non-revenue sports bus trips to the 5 nearby Sunbelt schools for all your sports does save money. In the end it's about overall revenue. As the MWC TV contract is very low, especially given the quality of the members compared to the departing ones, it's not the potential homerun conference move it was recently. The biggest point to consider is that when we're looking at Texas St as the lone "Texas" option for the MWC and NMSU as the big competition for a final spot, we're talking a huge change in the quality of the conference options. A year ago, North Texas would be a lock to accept a MWC invite. Now? gotta think they'd pass. MWC best bet seems to hope for a BE football implosion and welcome Boise St and SDSU back with open arms.
5 near by schools? 1 "near" by school is UTA. Where do you get 5? Don't just say things w/o any actual info about how many trips they bus. If they bus 5 SBC schools they can bus to UNM, CSU, Wyo
. Yet FIU, ODU, Charlotte chose to travel all of their non rev sports as far as El Paso instead of the more confined SBC, you leave that out because it kills your pointless point
of non rev driving the bus. MWC makes 1.16 in tv rev per school, nbc and cbs coll.(I think, maybe just nbc and fsn) plus fox sports bay/ whatever the local fsn is, and trying to get a new deal soon. SBC gets? SBC gets 2 bowls. MWC 4 or 5? NCAA bball money for MWC a lot better than SBC. The same sh*t was said about the WAC when the schools left for the MWC, how would they ever recover, then Boise St. and Hawaii went to BCS games and Nevada was good year after year. USU has started to show up now. SJSU, Fresno(we are good most of the time) beat down their "big" ass sucking brother, SDSU.
UNT would pass because they're in CUSA, don't claim you'd know what UNT would do if they were left out of CUSA, they'd be butt hurt first and foremost that CUSA added FCS move up as part of a 6 school expansion where they weren't good enough. If MWC came in and offered them and maybe Texas St. a spot I think they'd accept. If there's one thing we know for a fact is that you don't have a beat on realignment involving Tx schools. Ask Texas A&M
I kid I kid, I got that wrong too, I blame your influence, getting me on board w/ that
How is the BE going to bust up(I wish)? It would have to be a deal under 6 mill per fb school to get the 2 westerners to come back, they could stay at 4 ro 5 mill per year if they wanted. Who else is gonna leave, Louisville 1 day maybe? Would Louisville be the deal breaker for BSU and SDSU? I don't think so.
