Re: Big XII Expansion

It's not how many bidders that's important. It's the quality of the content and it's not going to get us $15 million. Like I said we'll have to agree to disagree. Fair enough. Right now, the P5 conferences get 10X-20X more media rights revenue, but the ratings don't reflect that kind of split. Can ...

Re: Wave loses 24-14

That sucked. We should have won that game. The story was similar to game 1, where the defense forced GC to keep making GC run the ball rather than our RBs. GC needs to force the pitch more often. Had a few of those not-pitched turned into 1st downs we might have kept our defense fresh enough for the...

Re: Memphis GameDay Thread

We really need some help on offense. I really hate this offense. To me the only reason to run it is if you think you will never compete with the better teams and want to limit possessions. This will lead to getting to mediocre status quicker then levelling out. Also, it will never appeal to the ave...

Re: Big XII Expansion

The best way to gain ground would be to send a team to the playoffs and force 2 P5 conferences to watch from home. The best way to overtake Big12 would've been for Houston to make the playoff and win a game, giving AAC even playoff appearances and more playoff wins than Big12. That's fan logic, not...

Re: Big XII Expansion

Was Uconn beating Houston last season a "good win" for the AAC? No. Does that make any of the rest of it any less relevant? Yes, 100%. UConn beating Houston just like Navy beating Houston is not a necessarily good thing for the conference. It's a good win for UCONN just like the Navy win is a good ...

Re: Big XII Expansion

No one said we're there yet. But we're still better than the rest of the G5 by a long shot. Yes, we need to do better with our OOC opportunities. Until we do, we don't have an argument for being P6. Why does everyone here seem to think Rome was built in a day? Just because the AAC doesn't get the G...

Re: Big XII Expansion

It didn't help with NY6 Bowl, but that's short term. And you can't say that Navy beating #6 Houston is the same as Navy beating Tulane, or Houston beating Cincinnati. Houston was a Top Ten team, just like Clemson, Louisville, Alabama or Michigan, and Navy beat them. How can you not give credit for ...

Another garbage post designed to paint the absolute worst picture possible. 1) The AAC was in the Peach Bowl 10 months ago. 2) AAC ratings are up compared to peer conferences, and gaining fast (and people are continuing to pretend like we didn't out-rate a B12 game head to head) 3) An AAC team won ...

I don't know what you mean the Memphis v Temple game had no competition. The Indians-Red Sox playoff game and the Thursday night NFL game were pretty stout competition. The SMU-Tulsa game was up against an epic Cubs-Giants (1-0) playoff game at Wrigley as well as other playoff games. You could have...

It's good to see that the AAC is generally considered to be strong. However, if the AAC doesn't: 1. Land the G5 New Years Six bowl slot 2. Increase viewership ratings for AAC conference games 3.

Gap is closing. Early Massey ratings, with 71 rankings in. B10 49.85 B12 55.69 AAC 61.99 MWC 84.05 B12 is -5.84 behind B10, and +6.30 ahead of AAC. If AAC teams just continue to improve, by the time our TV deal is due to renew, Aresco should be in a strong position. We may be ranking higher than B1...

Re: Big XII Expansion

Per the the thread about the Navy upset over Houston, the current situation is getting better for the AAC (and Tulane) quickly. Houston is still ranked in the top 10. There are 3 other AAC teams ranked in the top 40, and that's with ECU and Cincy both currently rated lower than Tulane. Tulane, UCF a...
