  1. http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2016/05/02/In-Depth/Media-rights.aspx Conference USA, too, is expected to see its annual rights fee drop from the $7 million per year range to just around $1 million per year, sources said, as the conference replaced bigger college brands like Central Florida, Houston and Memphis with smaller ones like Louisiana Tech, Middle Tennessee State and Western Kentucky. The deal with CBS and ESPN still has not been announced formally, but the conference says it will soon make an announcement. Conference USA’s current deals with Fox and C
  2. When I read this article it is very discouraging and leads me to believe there is likely rampant cheating going on right now. North Carolina, Miami, Penn State -- to me there is still less risk in cheating and until they fix this with some steep penalties it will continue... read more: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/writer/jon-solomon/24560341/all-quiet-on-the-violations-front-is-ncaa-enforcement-dead
  3. Jerry is picking Ohio State to win tonight which means Big 10 won't have enough teams and Heart of Dallas will have to get a replacement team which he projects to be Syracuse. Read more: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/bowls/predictions
  4. Brelan Chancellor, WR, North Texas (vs. UTEP): Chancellor has been an inconsistent player this season. He's had big games, usually resulting from big plays, and some games where he has done very little. However, UTEP has allowed an average of 41 points per game, so it doesn't seem like a team that is going to stop Chancellor. All he needs is to break off one long play, which he is more than capable of, and he should get an abundance of chances against the Miners.

  5. Eh, looks like we have at least a few fans out there. http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/blog/eye-on-college-football/22930702/2013-conference-predictions
  6. Non-BCS commissioners are in discussions to cap per-conference base revenue at $12 million per year in the playoff era, multiple sources have told CBSSports.com. The so-called Group of Five -- MAC, Conference USA, Mountain West, American Athletic Conference, Sun Belt -- continues to finalize the distribution of their annual $86.5 million slice of the playoff pie. CBSSports.com reported the details of the split in January. What's new is the $12 million base that essentially caps per-school distribution at $1 million per year. Any Group of Five conference with fewer than 12 members would get
  7. MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Although Tuesday's news focused on Conference USA's official inclusion of Florida Atlantic and Middle Tennessee, on Wednesday, Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky was looking to the future. "Our deal is to be the conference that really represents the next generation of great programs," Banowsky said. "We target large markets, generally. We target growth markets. We find universities that have their best ahead of them in terms of potential, that have invested in facilities, that are gearing up and getting ready to go, and then we give them a stage and a platform
  8. The Big East has “reached out” to both Fresno State and UNLV to join the league on the football side, CBSSports.com has learned. In addition, BYU and Big East commissioner Mike Aresco have at least had informal conversations. UNLV and Fresno have “definitely” talked to Aresco, according to a source. However, the talks are being kept as secret as possible to keep from “offending people,” such as regents and boards of regents and trustees at those schools. Aresco is aggressively trying to assemble a group of football-playing schools to keep under the Big East banner. The problem: Uncerta
  9. The five power conferences have molded the coming playoff to their advantage. Surprise. Even the ACC -- whose champion has finished in the AP top 10 twice in the last decade -- is cashing in on $91 million per year. The rest of college football, the so-called Group of Five (MAC, Conference USA, Mountain West, Sun Belt, Big East, for now)? About $19 million each. Their only distinguishing characteristic will be getting that one automatic playoff bowl berth in one of the "host" -- or open -- bowls. Those bowls are yet to be determined, but favorite sites include Phoenix, Atlanta and Dallas. The
  10. What's to stop the Atlantic 10 for trying to pull the Big East's non-football-playing members to its league? Isn't that better than just waiting around to see if the Big East's non-football-playing members break away and then try to poach the Atlantic 10's best programs? Yes, that's better. And I suspect such inquiries will be made on some level, if they haven't already. But my guess is that the Big East's non-football-playing members would prefer to either stay put or figure out a way to start their own league. I'd be surprised if they simply merged into the A-10 to create a 21-team league
  11. The nationwide division scenario: The teams could be scattered to the four winds -- and time zones. Assuming Boise State and San Diego State go back to the Mountain West, that increases MWC membership to 12. At least. SMU and Houston could also join but it's doubtful how much TV value those schools would bring. There are few options for schools ending up in Conference USA. By 2015, CUSA will be a 14-team league. Former members SMU, Houston, East Carolina, Central Florida, Tulane and Memphis might be in a cat fight to rejoin their old conference. At 14 teams, CUSA certainly isn't going to t
  12. Hmmm I just stumbld over this article which lists loads of "secret srimmages"... but none for NT. are we having this kind of thing? seems advantageous to me to have a real test before the season starts of with a bang.
  13. What awaits the Sun Belt over the next four and a half months should amount to a special year in this conference. Yeah, you see small leagues get lucky every now and then and have a star with NBA potential. Sometimes the player is good enough to be a lottery pick, like Damian Lillard in the Big Sky last season. But it is ridiculously rare that a talent like Tony Mitchell is playing college hoops at the Sun Belt level. He is No. 7 on our Top 100, and many think he's the best combination of talent and athleticism playing in college basketball today -- better than anyone at Kentucky, Carolina,
  14. F - Tony Mitchell, 6-8, 235, Soph., North Texas Was supposed to go to Missouri, but didn't qualify and that's why he's in the mid-major ranks. But Mitchell can play anywhere. He's super-athletic, goes hard and is more skilled than people realize. He averaged 14.7 points and 10.3 boards for the Mean Green after missing the first nine games of the season.

  15. You going? Ranking the roadtrip: Want evidence that Kansas State football is back? K-State sold out this game in August. If you're traveling to Manhattan and don't have a ticket, this might be the easiest one left on the schedule to score from a scalper. Otherwise, head to Aggieville. Magic number for Kansas State: 2.5. The Mean Green don't have much of a passing attack -- QB Derek Thompson is completing only 42 percent of his passes -- so they have to rely on their running game. Good luck with that. K-State is allowing 2.5 yards per rush and held Miami to 1.9 yards per carry. Magic numb
  16. Interesting take on Marinatto and the Big East's fall from grace. Evidently, Judy Genshaft the AD at South Florida was stubbornly blocking Central Florida which led to instability within the league (sound familiar). Marinatto was able to land a 1.4 billion dollar ESPN contract which the Big East unbelievably passed on and after that the floodgates opened up. The irony of this of course for North Texas is this instability led to SMU's move to the Big East which opened up an opportunity for us to join C-USA. read more: http://www.cbssports.../story/18985030
