Re: Week 6 and the G5 is eliminated from the playoffs.

Better to have multiple teams in the top 20 than just one. Having one in the top four and multiple teams in the top 20 (25?) are not mutually exclusive. We can have multiple ranked teams without cannibalizing the one that had the best shot at breaking the P5 monopoly on playoff spots. Houston just ...

Re: Week 6 and the G5 is eliminated from the playoffs.

Who cares about the playoff this year. The Navy win is huge for the AAC, and big for Tulane's computer rankings this year. How is it huge for the AAC when the only shot we had at getting a conference member into the playoffs just went down the drain? It's huge for the long term health and strength ...

Re: Big XII Expansion

P4, P5 or P6--no credible system is going to exclude UT and OU. If the Big XII splits up, these two schools would essentially be doing nothing more than recreating expanded versions of the old Big 8 and SWC--and they would likely be included in a playoff system. Such a change would probably be a bi...

Re: Big XII Expansion

This is all speculation based upon winks, "on the hush hush" inside info, rumors, etc. I still doubt that there's a breakup of the Big 12 until 2024. Unless the NCAA grants "Power" status to the new conferences, and a whole lot of Universities that may or may not include Tulane get what they want, ...

Well that increasingly looks like nothing. They need a super majority and it doesn't seem like they have anything close to that about any candidate. Chaos is good for Tulane.

Good gravy. People argue just to argue. You are literally making up arguments. Where a channel is placed in the "channel guide" is different for every provider. For example, I have Sling and there are no channel numbers. In fact, FS1 (and FS2) come right next to NBC (network) and well before the ES...

You really are too much. I am a huge sports fan and need to use the guide feature to find FS1. It was a compelling match up with Houston being the David vs the Goliath's. Add that to the fact that FS1 still has very little penetration (gigity) then you get the ratings difference. Big East Bball rat...

You're sidestepping the point.

ESPNU is in 74.9M hom...

Subscribers as of June '16: ESPN: 89M FS1: 83M ESPNU: 70M You aren't really credible when you talk about a network in 83M homes not being a "major network".

Re: Big XII Expansion

The main two points coming from this string of observations is (1) the Big XII will morph long before 2024/2025, and (2) other than UT, OU and maybe KU, the other Big XII schools won't be getting P5 invites. Frankly, I don't see how the Big XII little seven can even get a "rescue plan" without OU o...

Re: Big XII Expansion

Right. But the point I'm making is that whatever deal the "watered down P5" would be entitled to would be the bargaining chip for Aresco and the AAC. Right now, ratings and on-field success are both in the favor of the AAC vs the Big 12 minus OU/UT/KU. I see the argument that you're making, but it ...

Re: Big XII Expansion

My take was that OU, UT and probably KU would move on to other P5's, while the remaining ones would be guaranteed to remain a P5, albeit a lesser one than the other 4. With only 7 teams, they'd have to look at adding 3-5 teams. IF this happens in a few years, it would still mean a watered down B12 ...
