Maybe Fresno should threaten to leave the conference and convince the MWC to give them more money.

Soup, my point is this.  That side deal with ESPN that Thompson entered into with Boise is not going to keep Boise in the MWC if they want to leave.  So if it wont keep them (Broncos) from leaving what purpose does it serve from a conference perspective?  There is an incentive for Boise to remain but no penalty if they want to leave, like for instance if they decide to leave the MWC then have them reimburse the conference for the extra TV revenue they have received, etc..

No. Last week I said it was CBS and FOX. If Boise didn't get a deal done with ESPN they would call the AAC. They weren't excited about the contract. I was called a liar of course.

Boise is making a deal with ESPN or FOX for their home games. Should get us between around $5.5 to $5.7 million. Smaller than the AAC but we get six guaranteed prime time slots.

thanks I guess.  The MWC commissioner agreed to sweeten the pot so Boise would rejoin the conference. If Boise was getting about 1.8 m, that should not NOW jump up to 3.6 m or more because ESPN is willing to pay more for Boise games.  The additional money should be absorbed by the conference as a whole.  Boise was already making almost twice as much as their conference counterparts in TV money as it was.  If they end up making 3 times as much money as their counterparts that would simply become untenable and Commissioner Thompson would need to be run out of town on a rail for allowing this to happen.  Lets take a look at this from another perspective, lets say Boise decides to leave the MWC for another conference, does that mean they would forfeit the extra ESPN revenue they were receiving to stick with the MWC.  If Boise was invited to a P5 conference they probably wouldn't care since the new conference TV revenue sharing would be so much greater.  So this added TV revenue doesn't look like much of an insurance policy to keep Boise from leaving the MWC.  The only reason that Boise has not yet left is because a viable offer has yet to be made to them.  Once that happens Boise will bolt and that ESPN side deal that was cut for them to stay wont mean diddly squat. 

So, you think Boise goes Indie ?

Back to Tier 3, I think Sinclair does present the most likely partner.  Stadium's OTA network is pretty much a joke, but since they now own many of the RSNs, we could see a series of deals with local RSNs, then Stadium gets their typical free programming by re-transmitting outside those regions both thru their OTAs and via streaming.

First off BSU is not leaving anywhere in the next 10 years at least. Second the deal was meant to bring BSU back into the conference, not the keep them from leaving. That's why the deal was given and has stayed in place because it was a legally binding contract.

Timing is everything. It was a negotiated deal to keep the Broncos in the conference when they were looking at bolting to the Big East eight years ago. Now, you are correct, they would bolt in a nano second to go to a P5 conference. If Thompson had played his cards right he would have called the Broncos bluff back then, but whoever said Thompson has a brain.

I don't believe they want to do that.  Because if they did, they would have done it already.

IMO if the Broncos could put their other sports in the WCC, they would pull a BYU and go independent.

Conferences are looking for ways to make more $$$.

I highly doubt Boise brings more value, eyeballs or revenue to the Pac, XII, or AAC. Its a very small tv market.

Boise is ranked as the # 106 tv market with 270,000 tv homes.San Diego is ranked as the #28 market with just under a million tv homes.

Who do you think is getting the invite ?

Doubtful.  Because their path to a NY6 bowl does not go thru independence, something BYU did not anticipate at the time.

As much as I hate to say this Boise State doesn't have BYU's power to pull it off. What it does have is the best name of any G5 school out there. That is why it can gets its own deal with ESPN. No other G5 can say that and that includes the AAC schools.

actually given hairs comments on the aac and their cost to produce and what a poor decision that was I think it is likely we wont pay any production costs.  add in roots sports doing some of our production costs for the right to the left over content it is unlikey we pay any new costs

AAC schools had similar/better infrastructure in place for their cost displacement but to you guys it’s: think about all this production!!! It must be one, two million dollars a year! It’s a little ridiculous on multiple fronts.  First, your ad comments about the aac deal are grain of salt worthy.  Second of all, ALL conferences pay for their own shit.  Why would you be any different? Be realistic.  Third, say it with me because it benefits you: production costs are not that much, we were all STUPID to believe that our message board posters had any idea what they were talking about.

my bet it is also why espn was cut out.  espn wanted us to cover production costs and we said no

Every deal that ESPN has made over the last couple of years has included that ESPN+ streaming component.  So if the MW was dead set against it, I suspect ESPN wasnt going to happen.  I am surprised FOX was involved.  With only two networks, and ownership of half the Big12, half the Pac12, and half the Big10---I honestly didnt think they had any broadcast windows for additional inventory.   I wonder if they plan on getting FS-2 more involved in college sports?

 

At any rate---I think the deal is pretty good.  I think most people were expecting something in the 25 million range.  35 million far exceeds expectations.
