  1. Week 0 TV

    Rutgers was still in the supposed 6th best conference at the time. Even though the Big East was a BCS conference, they were the ugly stepchild. The PAC-12 controls the Sydney College Cup's TV rights. The MWC doesn't. The Big Ten controls the TV rights to Michigan's home games. The MWC doesn't. The MWC controls Hawaii's TV rights(aka all their HOME games), and their Tier 1 TV partner(CBSSports) chose to show UH's HOME games against Colorado, Oregon State, Washington, and USC on their network.
  2. Week 0 TV

    ESPN wasn't an option because CBSSports gets first dibs. They have broadcasted every conference controlled MWC-Power 5 matchup that didn't involve Boise State since 2013.
  3. Week 0 TV

    Eleven Sports Network(UH vs UMass)is in 55 Million US households. The game is also being shown on Spectrum sports in Hawaii and NESN in Massachusetts.
  4. Nevada fans, think back to the 2010 football season

    Chow originally wasn't even a finalist. JD and the selection committee picked their 4 finalists. Somehow, Chow got added on the list as a courtesy to appease BOR members. When JD presented the UH President with their pick of Dirk Koetter, she and several BOR members said no. Then they said no to Brian Norwood, Mark Banker and Duane Akina. So Hawaii went with its fifth pick. It pissed off a lot of people on the selection committee, many of whom were major donors to the athletic program.
  5. Offensive Statues

    What is UNLV's new logo doing in San Jose? Shouldn't you Spartans find that offensive?
  6. I highly doubt it. The family moved to Alabama. His little brother plays for Thompson High School, which is coached by Jameis Winston's former HS coach.
  7. Hawaii

    Walk-On DL Zeno Choi is presented a UH scholarship from a KPOP girl group. Rolo is pretty creative.
  8. Boise State @ Hawaii 2007

    If he could read, I'd probably agree with his adjusted assessment 2012 SJSU ≥ 2014 UH
  9. Boise State @ Hawaii 2007

    hmmm SJSU, the only team to lose AT HOME to Hawaii during Norm Chow's tenure(13-0 in 2014), talking about UH losing to a superior opponent. How did your BCS game go? #Lamer
  10. tv agreement on espn and cbs

    As an indy, your travel costs are covered by the guarantee from the team hosting you. It's almost like playing Hawaii every week. If you join the Big West for other sports, you save even more money on travel.

    BYU had a scheduling agreement with several teams from the WAC when they originally announced their independence from the MWC. Because of the scheduling agreement, WAC teams had agreed to play mid-season contests. Hawaii had a 10 year scheduling agreement, which UH had to cancel because the Hawaii games were going to be on the same day as the MWC CCG, which would create a scheduling conflict if UH ever were to win the division. They were only able to play 2 games in the series. Hawaii and BYU then agreed to a new series, which starts this year on the islands The Las Vegas Bowl and BYU's other tie-in, the Hawaii bowl, are owned by ESPN Events. ESPN did BYU a solid.
  12. Fire Craig Thompson

    The conference doesn't The original MWC conference doesn't sell out to BYU in football. The 2010 WAC members(50% of the conference) are the ones playing them, as they have had no problems with BYU. Only CSU, NM, AF, UW, and SDSU have a problem with them. UNLV needs BITS and therefore schedules the Cougs. As for all of your other questions...? I have asked them as well.
  13. Fire Craig Thompson

    Dont they need a 2/3 vote to fire him? There are only 11 voting members in the MWC, and the "Big" 4(CSU,NM,AF, & UW) would never allow that to happen. They are the ones that keep this conference down.
  14. Hawaii? Getting a little thin?

    UH lost the fans because of the WAC-16, then the MWC split, then the additions and subtractions of the 2000s in the WAC. The game time change didnt help and neither did PPV. It was almost as if UH was playing an independent schedule with all the unfamiliar opponents coming to Aloha Stadium. Now most of the MWC opponents are unfamiliar to fans as UH hadnt played them consistently on over a decade prior to 2012. Combine all that with the fact that over the past 15 years there have been reports that Aloha Stadium isnt structurally safe, I'm surprised that anyone shows up for the games.
