From a distance, i get the impressio that Sandy Eggo us an El Lay pro sports town. When i go online to sports talk stations in SD looking for Aztec content, the vast majority of the content is LA Sports.

The  pecking order seems to be:

1. Pads

2. Chargers

3-9 All other LA pro sports.

10. USC

11. UCLA

12. Aztecs

Even the Aztec Radio station bhad minimal Aztec segments.

Do folk in SD just not care ?

Lol? You must not be in SD. Check 1360am or 97.3FM. Schaeffer on 1360 and Gwynn and Chris on 97.3 are talking Aztecs constantly. When the stations aren't talking Aztecs they're talking Padres. If you think folks are talking LA teams down here you probably haven't been around awhile...just like the LA teams haven't been really good in awhile.

I'm in Utah and I don't see much when I scan the archives.

Pre and post game on 1360 and a couple of Coaches shows are all I can find.

Here's Schaeffer's twitter account. He also puts out an Aztec newsletter.

 

@jonschaeffer

I posted the link but it was too crazy...you can look him up.

You do realize that sports radio isn't a thing anymore, right?

It's for older folks (i'm old so I'm not being critical, just pointing that out)

Actually in SD it still is. The top two shows are both on 97.3FM, the morning and drive home shows. Both talk Aztecs regularly, along with Schaeffer at 1360am.

It's sure big here in SLC. Two FT stations and one PT sports talk.

And yea, I'm an old guy

Well, yes, I mean old people listen to radio... younger people don't... so there will be less and less content on radio as things go forward

really?  young people in SD listen to sports talk radio?  ok, if you say so... I doubt the radio stats show that but i certainly could be wrong...

Padres being good recently has a lot to do with it. The most popular morning sports talk show here has quite a young audience. Lot's of folks active on social media. Hell, its why you kinda dont see many Aztecs here. Because anyone under like 45 is on twitter now. I would bet as many stream these shows now as listen live. I am the rare under 40 weirdo on message boards and such from this area. Not sure why that is but my guess is the 2016 MV fight ended up getting a lot of SD sports fans on twitter.

I'm sorry you have to endure SLC sports talk, I find it awful. Maybe its better in San Diego. Locally its a lot of baiting fan bases (BYU/Utah) to try and anger listeners and drum up customers.

I agree with @Someone Else local sports talk radio is a dying industry

Seems that way. Some get lucky and can create YouTube channels.

@Spaztecs

here is a link to an Aztec Newsletter by Schaeffer. IMO, this guy is our number 1 fan in the local media.

I hope Schaeffer becomes the new voice of SDSU when Leitner retires as the lead PBP.   He does great job promoting the Aztecs.

This thread is still a thing?

I thought this was put to bed a couple weeks ago!

Rumors & fan speculation are just that... rumors and fan speculation.

I have no 'inside information' from some mythical board member, only a personal opinion.  And not that its worth a hill of bananas, my opinion is that we are done here.  And I just don't mean done as in no more moves but that eventually only 30-40 teams will be allowed into the party (meaning meaningful TV money)... and most of you know exactly who those teams are.  

If you don't, i'll help, it's the SEC & B10 teams plus a few from the ACC and a few from the Pac 12...  I bet you can name those teams, can't you?

The rest of the schools will be fighting for scraps and it won't really matter to the tv folks who gets those scraps because it will be minor league stuff and only used for filler content.  There may be one or two teams that squeak in there from the world of the outcasts but I doubt it. 

So fans here that are arguing who is more worthy of a "promotion" ...in my mind are just fooling themselves.  

btw, I have forgotten what team I root for this week... is it middle tennessee or app st?  doesn't matter, we are all on the outside looking in with our noses on the glass...

cheers... (Oh, my board member connection just confirmed that I was right about all of this!!)

 

 

 

Well done.

Nobody in the MWC cared about TCU when they were added.  Turned into a great conference game and a successful arrangement.

Do you know what outlier means? There isn’t enough revenue in the current contract to sustain Texas’ third tier D1 programs. TCU has a rich history. And probably more money than all of the current expansion candidates combined. These Texas programs have no connection to the MWC. Zip. This experiment failed twice already. If SDSU and Boise leave, then a full-on lifeboat discussion will take place.

Football drives the bus..That is the mantra.

The single most proactive move the 7 long time WAC schools did was form the the MWC.

They didn't care about TCU and the Ft Worth market

They didn't care about SMU and Dallas

Rice not interested in even a part of Houston mkt.

Tulsa, Utep no go

Fresno State, Hawaii and SJSU all good sized cities in the neighborhood.  Sorry

Boise State and NV were still in the Big West..completely under the radar...

So , if we accept the mantra that football drives the bus..

They gave away all those schools and kept UNLV football..

Think about that..UNLV FOOTBALL..

The thing is..Nobody knows how things will go in the future with any schools.  Presidents and AD's along with commissioners make mistakes.  They make decisions based upon many things..Sometimes panic, sometimes arrogance...

It ain't science and it ain't art..
