But, your point stands. FCS is not followed outside of FCS schools.

Were those TV games on ESPN last year? I watch college football all day every Saturday and not once did I see an JMU game. When I say national TV, I means a Thursday night game on ESPN against another FBS team during primetime!

National on NBC Sports on Saturdays. Some primetime included, but 2nd rate network.

I remember it being quite a coup for an FCS league to sign such a deal with NBCSN for FB and BB. How long is that deal? I wonder if the deal will be renewed as ODU, VCU, GaSt, Mason, and UMass football leaving since the deal was signed. I really think a lot of it was to capitalize on Mason and VCU basketball. The CAA was a trendy BB league at the time.

it was a 5-year deal.

2013 was year 2. Still 3 more to go. And NBCSN has already said they will honor the contract despite the defections.

JMU had 3 games nationally televised the in 2012 and 2013 on NBCSN. 3 were at home, 3 away.
At the end of that 5 years....good luck. Outside of JMU the CAA had very little to offer TV audiences now. A lot of small private schools with small alumni bases. Lost your best Bball programs.
