  1. There’s no position of strength there. The 3 most lucrative time slots (in the CTZ) are 11am, 2:30pm and 6-7 pm and there’s too much competition for those slots. That “early evening” which I’m considering as 6-7 pm is convenient enough out east to have competition from every conference. The late night 9-10pm time slot may be exclusive to the western conferences (PAC-12 and MWC) but it’s just not that important of a slot. 75% of the country is going to bed by the end of the first quarter. The MWC is screwed by time as well as population.

    DeMarcus Cousins signs 1yr deal with Warriors

    I can understand the point you are making and still not agree with it.

    I think our definitions of ”super team” is different. Winning doesn’t exactly make them super teams. The Spurs were not a super team and the 2nd Kobe Lakers were not a super team.

    Also I'm just saying if there were 30 teams from the start of the NBA to the present day, the championships would be more distributed amongst teams (as long as players were distributed). There would still be groupings of championships by a singular team, but in the current day the team changes. Bulls, Lakers, Spurs, Miami, Golden State

    I get the point but people are sheeple and tend to extrapolate current conditions into the past or future and don't take into account differences that may have existed or will exist at those times.

    That’s a little disingenuous. 15 of those Lakers and Celtics titles came when there were 14 or fewer teams in the NBA. And the 16th title was in 49 when they had 17 teams which 6 folded after the season. i didn’t count the other teams titles in that era.

    Borrego turns down the Lobos

    My understanding was that Ettore Messina is tabbed to take over the Spurs when Pop goes. At least, that's how it was advertised by the San Antonio media when he came here. 4-time Euroleague winner, 5 losses in the Euroleague finals and 2 semifinal losses with a career winning percentage of .740. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ettore_Messina

    Conference USA on the verge of collapse?

    And the SWC dissolved. You know now it very well may include SMU but I think it will be a mistake. The Texas Legislature does like to throw its weight around. SMU minus the massive cheating of the 80s hasn't done anything since the... 50s (?). They have money, but don't really prioritize sports. Now that being said, the same thing was said about TCU around 98-00 but they've made huge turn around and put money in their sports and had success. In the end, I just don't think it would benefit the Big 12 to have 2 schools in the Metroplex if they are still getting decent media contracts unless SMU turns into TCU or Boise.

    I'd say less for SMU as long as TCU is in the Big 12. Houston, TCU, and Baylor seems sparse to cover Texas assuming that Tech gets a ride somewhere. But theres no Big 12 level schools around Austin (excluding Texas if they leave) and San Antonio to cover that hole.

    Wichita St to the AAC

    Yeah, I thought of UConn as an example after someone mentioned Villanova, but was too lazy to update my statements on here. So there is that. Obviously, it's not widespread and I'm not sure if there's been some NCAA rule change on it as they did in the late 90s with DII schools playing certain sports or the numbers of sports in DI. So there seems to be the ability for an FBS conference school to play FCS football (absent NCAA rule changes or those schools having been grandfathered in or something). The next question is can FBS conferences stop member schools from upgrading their football into that conference. Can the AAC not grant membership to Wichita State's football though they are a full member if they decide to go FBS? I'd think that they can't stop it but I'm not certain. Norte Dame plays outside their main conference but that's by choice rather than refusal to be admitted.

    It could end up affecting the MVFC. If the MVC ends up adding both, I'd think that they have to find Murray State a spot in the MVFC, which gives them 6 members and allows them to bring it in house if they want. More importantly, it wounds the OVC which then needs to add and so does Horizon League, which I think are both above the Summit. Depending on who the Summit pulls in, it could get interesting for the MVFC. I'd assume that everyone would like to keep the MVFC together since it's worked out so well for everyone.

    Good call! I forgot about them.

    Those are Division I conferences, not FBS or even FCS and the schools play FCS football. I know of FCS schools that play in an another football league, the Pioneer, but my understanding is that it's their choice (Campbell) to do so and they could move to their home conferences if they want to (with the scholarship upgrades of course). With Campbell's move their are no FCS conferences with members in other football leagues(Pioneer).

    But the money is in FBS football especially if the AAC gets a better contract next go. Anyways it's all good. I mean just trying to see the logistics and if it was possible. They may not want football at all or just have pulled an amazing con to get into the best FBS available to them and then start FBS football. It will be years before we know.
