SMU pressuring Big 12 to add them?


Recommended Posts

I HATE the “media market” argument. The fact that a team from College Station and a team from Austin and a team from Norman, OK and a team from Lubbock and a team from Baton Rouge, LA and hell, even a team from Waco plus about 10-20 more teams get much bigger media attention in Dallas than the team right in the middle of Dallas nullifies SMU’s “media market” argument. 🤦🏼‍♂️
 

What good does it do being in a media market if you’re not covered IN the media in that market. DBU can use the same argument. It doesn’t matter. It has the same impact when compared to those other schools as SMU….

Big12 sports is already well established in the DFW market, at this point its probably the Big12's number 1 market.  Other then that, SMU is not going to bring anything to the Big12 that they dont already have, nor will they bring a ton of revenue.

So this tweet has 60 likes?  Sounds like the actual number of fan in seat for their games going into the 4th quarter.  They have no leverage on the Big 12.  And for the PAC 12 to consider them they would need a partner that bring more to the table than SMU in this region of the country.  I really think the PAC ignoring Texas Tech, Houston, Oklahoma State, Kansas, and KSU to get into the central time zone dug their grave.  Utah and Colorado didn’t bring much.

There would normally be around 65, but those other five are too busy on here to stop and read Twitter.

@meangreenfaninno You and most of the UNT people all have the same problem with VASTLY overestimating SMU. SMU has ZERO leverage with The Big 12. Zilch. None. Nada.

It's time to put the SMU boogeyman fairytale to rest. The SWC has been dead for 25 years. It's time to move on.

 

SMU is desperate for a P5 invite and I can assure you that openly begging for one doesn't get you invited to the club. If you want to go P5, do what we did. Do what UCF, Cincy and BYU did.

 

SMU can't sell out a 30k stadium or draw TV ratings. They believe in throwing money at everything but that doesn't work when your target has money too.

The only time you’ve ever said anything smart, meatloaf
