    Meet the new Ole Miss Mascot.....

    no wonder they kept Matt Luke as HC...that place is a dumpster fire right now.
  2. 7-5 NMSU vs 6-6 SMU in a sold-out Frisco Bowl could be fun to watch...that's my guess for NMSU in 2018. hope y'all beat Liberty twice :-)

    OT: University of Tulsa Athletic Dept budget cuts

    Penny only took that deal to make the Tubby buyout possible. Memphis was paying Tubby 3 million per year...that's about our current max for a hoops coach.

    I believe when he left Memphis was paying Cal 2.2 million per year and that was sold back in 2009.

    Memphis just raised it's football salary to 2.6 million to keep Norvell from taking the Arkansas gig...moreover, we kept Calipari 9 years. I feel like we're doing just fine.

    AAC fans are a sensitive lot

    I'm expecting more like 6 years, 200 million...or 2.78 million per team/per year. AAC gets a small bump in pay along with a few more weekend games, and some more non football/mens basketball exposure. I wanna see more UConn women's games and more AAC baseball on ESPN.

    repeating the obvious ad nauseam is not an educated guess...It's been known ever since the AAC invited WSU that negotiations would take place AFTER getting the ESPN numbers for WSUs inaugural AAC season. I'm hoping we'll be in negotiations by the time football season kicks off.

    they're not...and if they ever do it'll be FCS (like Nova)

    you've been peddling this for awhile now. Our contract runs through 2020 and now that we have tv numbers for WSU we can sit down with ESPN this summer to renegotiate...the article says as much and that has been known for awhile.

    Menzies on the hot seat?

    interesting. UNLV is hiring Tubby Smith's top recruiter, Joe Esposito. https://lasvegassun.com/news/2018/jun/22/unlv-hires-joe-esposito-as-mens-basketball-special/ he was the only one on Tubby's staff worth a damn. he single-handedly recruited Jamal Johnson and Myreon Jones to Memphis... https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2017/jamal-johnson-3432 https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2018/myreon-jones-140398 (both have since moved on since Tubby left)

    ouch...

    That was a fun day indeed...The Liberty Bowl was rocking the whole game :-) and just outside the stadium Cooper-Young Arts/Crafts festival was going on (which attracts like 60k) 11am Memphis time kickoff meant I could enjoy a big Tiger W and then go walk around CY fest for a few hours while traffic cleared out...it was great!

    ouch...

    I don't agree. Memphis went and got an AD who has deep Western football ties...I mean, look at Fuente from TCU, Norvell from ASU and our home-home football series with UCLA. We also went and got a Univ President who cares about football and has deep ties with our local Fortune 500 executives. (having boosters is VERY important) hiring coaches isn't a guessing game...the trick is finding an AD who knows the up and comers and is willing to hire them.

    ouch...

    they totally can...I'm just saying it's not random. you have to REALLY want it (and have boosters who REALLY want it too)
  14. UofMTigers

    ouch...

    thing is, Memphis getting good wasn't an accident. We hired a football first AD, and poured money into football while simultaneously talking the City into spending 30 million to update the Liberty Bowl.

    to me a good season is defined as making the NCAA tourney and advancing...even if it's just winning one game.
