  1. Thanks. I forgot about Boise’s sweetheart deal. Is it a certainty that the bonus $1.8M does not come from the $45M/year? So basically, from the TV deal and adjacent agreements, MW teams get just over $4M/year, Hawaii gets just over $3.25M, and Boise gets just over $5.8M. (Actually, I just found another article, different from the original one I quoted, that estimates Boise’s share at about $5.7M and the other members’ share at about $3.9M, so very close to the numbers you provided). ESPN has hamstrung the MW in regards to stealing SMU and a few of the other CT teams by agreei
  2. Is this correct? I posted this on another thread: How do the financials work out to $5M/year/school at $45M/year? Was the quoted deal in that article supplemented by additional funds for third-tier rights or something? Or does that $5M/year figure include CFP payouts and/or APR payouts, etc.?
  3. What is the MWC’s TV deal worth? I found an article online that quotes $270M over 6 years. That’s $45M/year divided by 12 schools comes to $3.75M per school/per year. I don’t know how Hawaii being a football-only member impacts the revenue shares. Is this right/the most current?
  4. Is that 1 or 2 penalty kicks that El Tri has been robbed of in the opening 10-15 minutes?
  5. What I heard was that the Big Ten was looking to add USC and Notre Dame to get to 16 members. If this report can be believed, at least USC reciprocates the interest. I don’t think that ND is a viable option due to a clause in its current contract with the ACC, which supposedly stipulates that if ND chooses to join a conference it must join the ACC. Not sure how ironclad that is if it exists. Also, not sure how keen ND would be on moving to the Big Ten over the ACC anyway. Assuming ND stands pat, would the Big Ten be okay with just adding USC and staying at 15 members, or as this video rep
  6. NIL, new Transfer Portal rules, abandoned long-standing traditions for the sake of unabashed financial gain (in the name of “amateurism”), etc., we are entering a New Era of College Football with all new rules. This begs the question, Is the time now to allow for Football-Only Conferences? Discuss. (If y’all want to take the initiative and make this its own thread, feel free.)
  7. In related news, @mugtang is looking into whether or not he can void the sale of the MWCboard. (pic of mugtang during the last Conference Realignment round)
  8. Then that leaves, NIU, Rice, North Texas, and UTSA. Over the same 2010-2019 timeframe (wins in parentheses), NIU (91), UTSA (48*), North Texas (53), Rice (47). *UTSA (2012-2020) has only played nine seasons total but I included the 2020 season since it played a full 12-game schedule. Added BYU for comparison purposes. During the same 2010-2019 timeframe, BYU has 77 wins (rounded to 8)…OR…if you prefer, since BYU played a full 12-game schedule in 2020, 81 wins (still rounded to 8) over the 10 year span between 2011-2020. Interestingly enough, if you wanted to use both
  9. If you’re eliminating the AAC and Sun Belt schools listed, then your list of 20 is now a list of NINE. Probably about half of those nine could easily be discounted as well, leaving you with NIU, the three TX schools from CUSA, and maybe Louisiana Tech.
  10. I’ve seen it posted here several times and many/most seem to agree that it’s a priority with the conference but who knows if it actually is. Problem is, there really isn’t anywhere else to go. IF the MWC wanted to add BYU, and IF it wanted to add a 14th team to even things out, the only current FBS teams available in the Mountain and Pacific time zones are New Mexico State and UTEP. Given those options, the conference will almost assuredly go east.
  11. If what’s been posted here multiple times is true, that the MWC wants a presence in the CT zone in order to get coveted early time slots, then (for that reason and many others) that 14th spot wouldn’t go to New Mexico State. Would the 14-team MWC look like this?
