If ULM is closer to the eastern schools, how would others be "carrying our baggage" if we played in the west? Since we are located very near the center of the conference footprint, either division would be ok with me. Getting to Boone from anywhere is not going to be easy, but neither is Moscow.

Boone is not convienent for any West Division team. Heck, its nearly a straight shot from Jonesboro once you get down to I40...but there is the little problem of the Appalachian Mountains that can cause all sorts of travel issues.

Man, if you blink, you miss the big news, but here is where the big news is buried: there is some way for the Big East Conference to generate incremental revenue for FS1 in excess of $100m by adding two teams.

Think about it ... if FS1 can generate in excess of $100m from two invites and the extra BBall inventory they offer FS1, at their current ratings levels, that implies a revolution in the value of regular season BBall, and that is going to filter on down several rungs. Whether the precise moves he speculates about occur or not, this in itself is major news.

Without that revolution in the business of extracting media value from regular season BBall, as FS1 established itself over the coming five years and its ratings build, it will reach the point in two or three years where that extra inventory is worth the cost, and that's when the Big East expands and the dominoes start to fall. But with that revolution the dominoes fall much faster.

People think that the strong teams of 2013 will remain the strong teams long-term, that isn't how sports work.

As for New Orleans football, as far as I have read they just used that as a lie to get into Southland like Corpus did a couple of years ago. They started a club team like UT-Arlington did, but like UTA they have do plans to upgrade to the varsity level.


As for the WAC expansion,
Denver is an academic snob. They wanted out of the WAC when they heard that Grand Canyon (a for profit college) and Utah Valley (a former junior college turned university) were coming on board. I can't believe they would come back now

Grand Canyon is more problematic than Liberty (and coming from me, that's quite a statement). They are FOR PROFIT. I don't think they belong in the NCAA in any division, regardless of other issues.

The interstate cut throughs are so low and gradual even a flat lander can handle them easily.

Oh, I didn't miss that. But took it as evidence of his delusion. Adding those ttwo teams is going to generate 100M? Come on. This guy is full of it.

Tom -- you are blinded by your own intolerance and hatred.
So I guess you are against all private schools being in the NCAA now?
Oh - and any school that makes a profit? Think UGA doesn't turn a profit on sports? Somebody sure is making a lot of money, even if the books don't show it. Non-profits like Electric Co-Ops are funny to me sometimes, because all they have to do to not show a profit is give themselves a raise or more benefits. It is just the way it works.

How about start looking at any positives each program can bring to the conference and just evaluate them on that?

But to say that Liberty shouldn't even be in the NCAA just reveals the level of hatred in your heart. Better get used to them - they will be your conference mates in about... 3, 2, .....

Maybe.

I have no idea if they will get in or not. - Just saying.. "Don't be a hater!"

I shall be testing that statement... whenever Texas State plays there in football.

Of course if we go to divisions, who knows when that will be.
