If Bowling Green was closer to the Ohio boarder instead of the Tennessee border, the I think it would be an easy choice. Don't know how their fans feel about it but I would think the SBC would be more regional for them.

I know what Im talking about. Chryst will hand deliver an invite to WKU the day they trun I-A. Now if the Sun Belt does also, then they will have to make a choice on where to go. But this guy has already been keeping an eye on the Toppers. He's knew from day one of Marshall entering the MAC that we wasn't staying. Western would be different. They might not be a life long member such as Miami & Bowling Green but they would be staying longer than 8 yrs. Plus there is a team in Indiana, NY and teams in Michigan in the MAC. Im sure Chryst would see a fit there. Im not trying to flame the Sun Belt just telling ya there will be competition for the services of WKU.

Thank you for the comments on our program and school. I think we averaged around 10K last year on attendance, but not sure exactly. Interesting that you say the MAC would be interested in WKU and that the commish has already been looking at us. Last summer, some rumors floated around about the MAC. Our A.D., at an alumni function mentioned the MAC in general chit-chat. I forget what exactly he said but that the MAC could become an option for us and that we would be interested in going to the MAC.

Nothing against the Sun Belt, I like the Sun Belt and I think we are finally making rivalries with some of the newer schools, but if the MAC gives us an invite, we're gone. The MAC is better in basketball and their are more "basketball schools." WKU is a basketball school. Now I say this comparing the MAC to the Sun Belt on Feb 20, 2004. The Sun Belt is changing and in two or three years, it could be a totally different situation for Western. But right now, if WKU got an offer from the MAC, I feel we would take it.

Before we talk too serious though, we need 1-A football first.

This is what I found

Quote:Stadium:  L.T. Smith (1968)
Current Cap:  17,500
Atted last season:10,124 (58% of the stadium)

Here's my thoughts, and Im sure an independant consultant would tell you the same. But I wouldn't jump until I got my attend. atleast double of what it is now. Is it possible to do in Bowling Green, I lived in WV for 23 yrs but haven't a clue. I would have thought you all were avg. 14-16 K. I know Marshall didn't jump until they had 20 2 years in a row. Marshall was urged to jump by the consultant we got.

What are you doing right now to increase attend.. How are you all promoting WKU. Or is it basiclly promoting itself. I know you mentioned WKU was a basketball school, do you feel that changing somewhat after the National Title. Marshall used to be a basketball school also. You wouldn't know it now, but we have more basketball championships than we do football. With the hiring of Jirsa, I hope we can have both now.

Just thinking out loud on some quuestions Ive wanted to ask a WKU quy for a while..........

I think most of our schools would jump at the chance. Perception seems to be everything.

We would jump if the chance came up, so I would say take it UNT if the offer comes up.
