  1. The MWC has officially left the AAC in the dust

    I have been saying $3 million. That number seems to anger those on that board. It is odd.

  3. The MWC has officially left the AAC in the dust

    I was wrong. Most think $3-5 million, but 28% think $5-8 million.
  4. The MWC has officially left the AAC in the dust

    Yes, they believe that. In a recent poll, the majority thought it would be $5 million to $7 million, but large number voted for $8 million to $10 million.

  6. The AAC has officially left us in the dust

    Damn......I don't think there is anyone in my "real life" that talks about me when I am not around. Maybe I am doing things wrong there, because in the message board twitter sphere, it is like I am famous.
  7. The MWC has officially left the AAC in the dust

    Sure, I get that, but I usually post stats that suggest that, recent events, or link articles of national media members that say it. There is also the current downturn in that market that to me, is obvious. Yet, people there think they are going to get ~$8-$10 million because the Memphis President said he "hoped" that would happen. I also point out that Aresco was the one who was promising the C7 a big payout, and pushed to add Tulane. The big payout never came, yet people there speak of Aresco, as if he is a rain maker. It is odd.

    Its amusing how I have become the object of so much hatred over there. Truly, all I do is cite stats, and state opinions that the MW and AAC have similar access, and similar performance. Considering the records against each other are the same, and we both compete for the NY6, nothing I say is false.
  9. The MWC has officially left the AAC in the dust

    Their OOC schedule is tougher, with the exception of Memphis. Memphis' only tough game is Missouri.
  10. The AAC has officially left us in the dust

    Ha. Lets be clear, I want a new conference as well. I just don't think going to the AAC moves the needle. In fact, the dollars and cents prove that. As does the graph above. As does the fact that the AAC as the same access to the NY6 as the MW does. In fact, by no objective measure does the AAC improves SDSU's standing or access.

    Post: #92 RE: TV Negotations https://www.si.com/tech-media/2017/12/10...dia-circus "“I don’t think that meant less interest in college football,” Karp said. “If anything, I’d say the interest was higher this season compared to some prior years. If you look at total minutes viewed for college football, it had to be some sort of record this year. There were some really exciting matchups and Fox Sports really stepped up their game this year—the company’s first with the Big Ten regular season lineup. You could often find three college football windows on the Fox broadcast window this season, which never happened before. With a healthy dose on FS1, they are making themselves a destination for college football now. But this is a zero-sum game, particularly as it relates to the Power Five conferences. Fox Sports’ gain was ABC/ESPN’s loss, as the new Big Ten contracts meant Bristol had fewer options with regard to top teams. While Saturday Night Football on ABC still got some bigger matchups, there were just fewer options for Saturday afternoon windows. As good as a team like UCF was this season, matchups from the AAC just aren’t moving the needle." "CBS said its coverage of Army-Navy on Saturday drew the game’s highest rating (5.9) in 23 years and was up 5% over last year. The top markets were Philadelphia, Columbus, Jacksonville, Norfolk and Baltimore."

    Good graphic. Shows what i have been saying. The Top of the conferences were similar this year. We both have shit at the bottom. The Middle of the AAC is more consistent than the MW. My solution: Hawaii needs to improve like we thought they were going to. UNM needs to silly be the 2015-2016 versions of Lobo football, and we need to kick SJSU out of the conference and replace them with UTSA.
  13. The AAC has officially left us in the dust

    A friend of mine in the national media said that Aresco has been flying out to Silicon Valley, and meeting with Google, Amazon and Facebook, in order to create competition for ESPN. He is not sure how it is going, but expects the next AAC TV contract (as well as MW) to be "pennies on the dollar." His words, not mine. We'll see.

    Would it make you feel better if I said some of the worst programs in the last 30 years?

    I actually agree with you, this is just counter to your narrative in every way. But welcome! Happy to have you here!
