    OT: University of Tulsa Athletic Dept budget cuts

    Yet the arguments about how super awesome athletics are for universities have been based around Notre Dame, Alabama, Ohio State, and Michigan. You know, schools in the top 1% of athletic programs.

    So no explanation, got it.

    Cool, so we will just arbitrarily remove 8 schools from the discussion. Now explain all the others.

    So then why do the schools with the largest endowments, for the most part, not have great sports programs? Sure there are some schools with strong athletics that have huge endowments, but for the most part the list is dominated by academic powerhouses that, if they even compete at the D1 level, have marginal athletic programs.

    Yea, the advertising works... if you are a college football fan.

    Not quite sure what this is supposed to rebut, but ok.

    Well to be fair, Calipri was there during a time where the financial gap between top conferences and the mid majors was smaller.

    ESPN+...what Disney Mgt hasn't told investors.

    I see nobody mentioned this bit of irony. Disney will be launching its own streaming service next year and will be pulling all its content (which includes all of Fox’s stuff since they are buying them) off Netflix (except for the Marvel TV shows like Daredevil), giving it a tv/movie streaming service in addition to a sports streaming g service in ESPN+. Also after the fox deal it will own 60% of Hulu and will place all its R rated material on there, essentially giving it a third streaming service. If you want all three Disney will give them to you at a discounted rate by packaging them together in, you guessed it, a bundle. So in cutting the cord to avoid cable bundles, you will very likely have to buy streaming bundles in the near future. Dread it... run from it.... the bundle still arrives.

    this could be a game changer for college basketball

    ...... yea..... and I think they should be draft eligible every year..... which would give them even more leverage......

    That if a player enrolls in a four year (like the vast majority of players do) they shouldn’t have to wait three years to be draft eligible. I thought my point was pretty obvious when I said “there is no reason they should have to wait 3 years to be draft eligible if they enroll In college”, but whatever.

    ESPN+...what Disney Mgt hasn't told investors.

    It’s not like they are going to scrap it if it isn’t immediately profitable, this is a long term play. I’d be curious what the numbers will be once the UFC programming starts, because that is going to bring a bunch of loyal subscribers.
