    Big East Expansion?

    Correct. And lots of basketball fans don't want to pay $150 a month to Comcast for the pleasure to stream ESPN 3 games or find ESPNews. $5/month for ESPN+ has an incredibly lower bar to access than the bulk of what the AAC requires. Don't forget how many A10 games got played Friday nights on...

    Big East Expansion?

    Well, if ESPN3 isn't relegated, than neither is ESPN+. And if that's the case, all but one game of Saint Joseph's entire last season was broadcast nationally. And St Joe's sucked.

    Big East Expansion?

    Oh, and outside of the fact that Temple's game against Drexel wasn't broadcast anywhere, and half of the Owls' games were broadcast online only via ESPN3, you really didn't mischaracterize Temple's TV coverage too badly.

    Big East Expansion?

    If strength of schedule was such a good measure of "performance," the SWAC would be a multibid league.

    Or Saint Joe's.

    2019-2020 Opponent Tracking

    I was personally wondering which state's beaches the URI men's basketball team would collectively decide to go to, and I thought there was no better place to find out than here.

    Big East Expansion?

    Because the ability to monitor actual viewership in this day and age is irrevocably flawed and advertisers will grow tired of getting swindled by networks. The same reckoning will come for online advertising, too.

    Markets will become meaningless very soon.

    This thread has jumped the rails like the train in Silver Streak.

    VCU Media Mentions

    Charlie Spoonhour went to SLU after Missouri State. But that was before SLU joined the A10.

    Big East Expansion?

    Blah blah blah. Same things were said when other teams left. A10 chugs along no prob.

    Big East Expansion?

    And that "perception" hasn't seeped its way into reality, as the AAC has fewer bids than the A10 over the past number of relevant years.

    Big East Expansion?

    The A10 has been a single bid league twice in the past 30 years. Comical stuff here.

    Big East Expansion?

    I think my favorite trope so far is "it's the A10's fault VCU hasn't gone further in the tournament."

    Big East Expansion?

    Someone has been paying attention.

    Big East Expansion?

    I've heard this again and again for years and years. The A10 chugs along pretty much unaffected despite the doomsdayers.

    Big East Expansion?

    What about the quickly approaching death of cable TV? Comcast and the like are bleeding subscribers like there's no tomorrow (because, in actuality, there won't be!). The TV money the the AAC (specifically) is getting is going to dry up real quick, so that short term gain, if it even amounts to...

    Bones Is Home.

    I think it's more likely he'll just grumble around for the rest of eternity or will go the Speedy Morris route and take some low level job in HS or D2 or something. One of his assistants, Dave Duda, was announced as the AD at a local D3 school yesterday. Maybe he can clear house and hire Phil...

    Bones Is Home.

    He had high offers 15 years ago at Rutgers and PC and decided not to take them. Phil was offered a different kind of challenge and opted not to pursue them. I don't see him taking this gig (generally at all really) so he can try to wiggle his way into a P5 gig--it'll never happen for a whole...
