MWC Action Items for a successful future

Recommended Posts

1. Equal shares for the TV rights profits. 1/12 to each participating school to include Hawaii.

2. Allow all MWC schools to keep all Tier 3 TV deals profits. (If your school don't have one, then too bad) (Welcome back BYU)

3. Invite BYU and UTSA into the MWC. BYU and UTSA goes to the Mountain division and Boise goes to the Western division.

4. Invite Hawaii for all sports.

5. If accepted by Hawaii, waive all travel subs for football but have Hawaii Oly sports pay travel subs for the first 5 years. Travel subs will be waived for Hawaii's Oly sports only if they obtain an NCAA tourney credit for that sport.

6. Put schools under probation for withdrawal if they draw 15K and less per football home game. 3 straight years of 15K or less and you get the boot.

7. Allow transfers to sit out only 1 year (instead of 2) for inter-conference transfers for all sports. Allow inter-conference grad transfers to play immediately.

8. Fire Hair and hire  @mugtang as the commish.

 

In other words, put everyone on a equal playing field. Both financially and on the playing field/court.

On point 6, I assume that is an average attendance.

On all the other points, I agree.

We're never inviting Hawaii in all sports. Get over it. We're not paying to send our women's tennis team for a weekend in Hawaii. It's stupid.

The average attendance thing is silly unless you crack down on counting methods. SJSU had almost the exact same attendance last year for every game....right around 15k. Coincidence? I don't think so.

I think everybody in this conference counts attendance the same way, tickets distributed.

Maybe that's how we recruit better for olympic sports? Who else offers Hawaii trips.

I'm honestly not sure, I don't think Wyo counts this way.

Possibly. But you crack down on schools dumping thousands of unused free tickets at local homeless shelters or at corporate sponsor partners to count towards attendance

No to BYU and UTSA. I think if you boot people based on per game attendance, you are going to lose a lot of members over time. A couple of down years for any of our schools an they could get hit by that. Plus attendance is simply trending down across the board. I think a better metric would be athletic budget. That shows true school commitment to the program. Attendance is a fickle thing and very difficult to control.

The NCAA rules for reporting official attendance (as in, what's reported to the NCAA, not what's announced) stipulate that a school cannot count any ticket given away or sold to the general public for less than 1/3 of the face value of the cheapest ticket available to the general public for that particular game. For example, if School X hosts School Y, and the cheapest ticket available to the general public is $42, then any ticket given away or sold for less than $14 cannot be counted towards the official attendance.

Bring something besides middle of the night football, and we can talk.  No guarantees, but we'll talk.

Yes to BYU and UTSA. 15K average FOR 3 STRAIGHT YEARS per season should be the cut-off.

#5 Hawaii pays travel subs for Oly sports.
