And that is the key I think @halfmanhalfbroncoyou can't take yourself to seriously because then it could be a slippery slope. He offered some insight on things, but I think he went overboard to where it was like an insult when we started asking questions. He did try to take a step back, but then went that way. I wouldn't mind having him comeback, and just have fun with things here

Yeah, but can he have fun without the need to always be "right?"  That's his challenge...

And that is the key, that is why just take a few steps back and have fun with it. Sometimes just good to get a what if discussion going. You know what if, MWC extends an invite to Wichita St for their Oly sports? What if monkey's flew out of so and so's butt what would happen? You know things liek that

Madonna is still working on that angle, I think...

Aresco started to believe his own bullsh1t.  He thought he could crawl into bed with espn as anything other than a disposable pawn.  When the Hateful 8 stuck together and spurned the move to tear the conference apart solely so that OUT could get out early without a payout, he set Bowlsby on a path of destruction.  Had he stayed neutral, the B12 may very well have looked at at least one MWC school, instead they were hellbent on leaving the ACC like a soiled, deflated plastic +++++ doll.  And now Mr. P6 is more like this:

Now I really am curious who MWC could potentially add with this implosion of AAC..  Tulsa/SMU?  Gonzaga/WSU?  Time to go shopping

Yeah, he DM'ed me in private before Jeff deputized me to take care of the sock situation.  I referred him to Happy.  I asked him not to leave but it was not fun for him and if it is not fun, than what is the point right?  This is all supposed to be fun.  It's why I decided to leave Bronco country a few nights ago, it was not fun for me anymore, the place was toxic and filled with double standards on what was allowable.  

At least he did not do a big good bye cruel board thread and wanted his exit to be drama free.  Only reason I am even bringing it up is so people know he is not avoiding the board for fear of being "wrong".  

bronco country is a cesspool and echo chamber

Unfortunate.  I enjoyed reading his posts and thought he had some interesting insights even if I didn’t always agree with him.

Agreed..  he seemed to get bent out of shape if not everyone agreed with him.  But it's a public forum, you're never going to have *everyone* agree with you.  Hell people troll just to see if they can get a rise out of a random internet person for poops and giggles.  I thought he had good insight.

I like a lot of the posters there but good god, some maniac can spout inaccuracies non stop on every thread and sneak in political conversations every other post and that's cool.  Call him out on it though and oh boy...

I don't think filling it with MW content is their goal.

That's probably the most valuable time slot on Saturday. I'm thinking they will go all in with a big offer to a P5. 

Not CBS's style.  And the 3 upcoming deals are all split between Fox and Disney.  If they wanted to spend big bucks they would have just kept the SEC deal.

SDSU AD JD Wicker was on the radio yesterday and spoke about some realignment issues.  https://www.iheart.com/podcast/256-the-darren-smith-show-30961693/episode/jd-wicker-were-going-to-tell-87547189/

At the 11:50 mark when asked about the MW expanding he spends two minutes talking about how the state of Texas produces more recruits (in all sports) than any other state, has major media markets, etc.  From the sounds of it that is where the MW will be looking to add, if they add.  He said the candidates have to bring value to the tv contract and be investing in their programs.

Separately, he said he has been prodding the conference to drop the football divisions or change conference scheduling because SDSU and Boise want to play each other every year.   (9:40 mark)

Said repeatedly MW is the best G5 conference so why would anyone want to leave to another G5

Also, SDSU is about to announce an OOC football series against an SEC school.  Said it wasn't Bama or Auburn and it won't be Missouri because was already have two home and homes with them.  Series will be a 1 for 2 to balance out our 2 for 1 with UCLA because our home game last year against UCLA that was cancelled was rescheduled to one of the years when we will be playing the SEC school.

Makes sense.  Any team which hopes to be invited into a P5 conference within a few years has little incentive to jump to another G5 now and eat exit fees twice.  They’d gladly eat the exit fees to get into the P5, but not otherwise.

UNT checks the boxes as far as investing in their programs.  Texas State built and expanded their stadium in the last 20 or so years.  UTSA..  they need a plan to replace Alamodome to join imo.

The state of Texas and the media markets are key.  Air Force and Army are playing the Commanders Classic in Arlington.

So glad we are staying in the MWC but I hope we can pick up a Texas school or two.

That could have been discussed with regards to CSU and AFA as well. However doing that will also make some schools angry as well. That is going to be a delicate balance because when they created the divisions there was feathers being ruffled when talking about putting Boise in the west division.
