    The Playoff must expand to eight teams or the same four will always be playing.

    I think the solution for the extra $$ is to potentially have Fox partner with them to produce games in the first round if needed (or first two rounds depending on the number) and split games between Friday/Saturday. Then ESPN retains the final four/NY6 games if those are still going to be a...

    The Playoff must expand to eight teams or the same four will always be playing.

    It realistically should be either 12 or 16 with all 10 FBS leagues’ conference champion getting in and then the corresponding number of at large selections- either 6 in a 16 team model or 2 in a 12 team model with the top 4 teams receiving byes in the 12 team model for a “Wild Card” type round...

    Atlantic Sun Conference Plans to Add Football and Move to FBS in "2-3 years"

    would Liberty want to (or have to) join this league if it moves to FBS?

    Who Will Be the 12th Big East Team?

    They won't add a 12th team mostly for what has been mentioned above. There is zero reason to from a competition standpoint- the league wants to play a double round robin- and nobody they could realistically add would enhance the TV deal past the current number. If they HAD to add a 12th- it's...

    OT: LaMelo Ball

    It’s incredible watching him play. Spot on about his feel: he just does things out there you can’t teach. Special player and he’s going to be a force as his body fills out and he continues to learn the game

    OT: LaMelo Ball

    Youngest player in NBA history to record a triple double. As a Hornets fan I’ve never been this excited for a prospect... ever. What a player and can’t wait to watch him develop:

    NYT: UConn Basketball Should Follow Football's Example and Shutdown

    Quite frankly I think Val and the Big East leadership has actually been pretty bad at managing this but I get your point

    OT: CFP Thoughts

    I know CFB people don’t want it because it would “ruin” (more like water down) the regular season but... can’t even fathom how much $$$ a 16 team FBS playoff with first two rounds on campus would make

    Boise St to the AAC?

    I nominated those names as other candidates for today, 2020. You said CCU “might have been a better choice than ECU” who was added in 2014. Seems like two pretty unique and distinct circumstances and discussions

    Boise St to the AAC?

    CCU was not even remotely a better option when the American was adding teams. CCU became FBS in 2016.

    Boise St to the AAC?

    Specifically as it relates to Boise- no ESPN doesn't have to pony up anything extra unless there is a pro-rata clause in the new deal. The only reason I'd add a 12th football team if I'm the American is because your waiver to play a title game with 11 ends after this upcoming season in 2021...

    Boise St to the AAC?

    Don’t know why they would move any of what you had listed above to the + as the advertising $$ from those games is critical to ESPN’s operation. But they will continue to add content that makes it worth having the + as part of your streaming subscriptions. Biggest game I can remember was a Big...

    Boise St to the AAC?

    They’re putting 14 SEC football games and 20 SEC basketball games on ESPN+ annually as part of the new deal announced when the CBS package moves over. They already have AAC and Big 12 football/hoops on ESPN+, as well as UFC. To be honest, I’ve actually enjoyed the ease of using ESPN+ to watch...

    Odds we have 85 scholarship players this season?

    So with all the transfers off the team we have a ton of space on the roster. Came across the below but our staff hates the portal. My question is- in a year where everyone else will have over 85 scholarship players, what’re the odds UConn actually has the full 85 (or close to it)? Anyone know...
