  2. 11. NORTH TEXAS Breakdown: With C-USA based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, it made sense to add a large public university like North Texas. The program has tons of potential, but fan support is lagging and the football program has been inconsistent. Facilities: Apogee Stadium is one of the nicest football stadiums in the conference, but it doesn’t draw great crowds. UNT Coliseum is a little bigger than necessary for the basketball programs. Fan support: UNT fans have shown up strong at their two bowl games at the Cotton Bowl stadium (2014 and 2016), but crowds at Apogee Stadium aren’t very good.

  4. https://sports.yahoo.com/rick-pitino-sus...11751.html The NCAA’s Committee on Infractions ruled Thursday that the Cardinals will have to vacate victories in which players competed while ineligible from December 2010 to July 2014, but its release did not definitively state that the school’s 2013 national title banner will come down. The punishment is the culmination of an investigation that began in August 2015 when Louisville learned that escort Katina Powell was set to release a tell-all book. Powell’s book alleged that former Louisville basketball staffer Andre McGee paid for strippers and escorts to dance for or have sex with Cardinals players and recruits at parties typically held in the on-campus basketball dorm named for Pitino’s late brother-in-law. The NCAA ruled that Louisville coach Rick Pitino failed to properly monitor his program and suspended him for the first five ACC games of the 2017-18 season. Among the other more minor penalties that Louisville received are scholarship reductions, recruiting limitations and four years of probation.
  5. This subject came up on the CUSA board. They have lots of dough. They also have their own tv network. Seem like they are coming up quickly. Thoughts?
  6. This helps CUSA teams. http://www.cbssports.com/college-footbal...ersigning/

  8. "North Texas picked up a commitment from Dallas Madison wide receiver Antonio Gage on Thursday. Gage is No. 30 in The Dallas Morning News rankings of the top prospects in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for the class of 2018. He is No. 162 nationally among wide receivers in the 247Sports composite rankings." Gage selected the Mean Green over offers from P5 programs Texas Tech, Colorado, Minnesota, Utah, and Illinois, as well as C-USA rival LA Tech and local AAC program SMU. http://www.dentonrc.com/sports/mean-gree...ommits-unt
  9. The day of cheating, bailing and skirting punishment appears to be over thank God. Feel bad for UTSA as they surely knew nothing about this. http://www.decaturdaily.com/sports/alaba...e05e8.html
  10. "For Conference USA, the AAC, and the Sun Belt they've chased the traditional modalities: market size, TV eyes, populous areas etc. They've worked under the illusion that a broadcast company is going to reimburse them for the reach of their media markets. That's gotten them to where they are now, millions of dollars behind the Power 5. The illusion is that Old Dominion brings ESPN or Fox the Norfolk area. It doesn't. The same way that SMU or North Texas or even TCU don't bring ESPN the Metroplex on a silver platter. TV execs know where the value is and what drives ratings and for eastern Virginia it's the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech or North Carolina. Texas, Texas A&M and OU bring eyes from the Metroplex. Florida and Florida deliver the greater Miami area if at all, not FAU or FIU..." http://swcroundup.com/news/2017/4/11/a-p...ign=buffer
