    If we went Independent could we sell rights to Amazon/any streaming platform? Also, same question - could we sell to SNY?

    If yes, then we have to be thinking about leaving the AAC for economic reasons alone. From a competitive standpoint, I am sure we could schedule all kinds of basketball (men and women) games that would not hurt the RPI like the AAC does, schedule football like other Indies have through the decades (i.e. bring in bigger name opponents and fill the stands at The Rent), and set up in either the Big East or patch together regional opponents for Olympic sports. The added revenue that the b-ball programs could generate and that increased Rent attendance could generate would have to be better than we are. Yes?
