AD says future will bring more football independents

I hope he's right. Athletic conferences are treasonous schlock.

Re: AD says future will bring more football independents

I look at Rice and they literally had less than 5K at the game......that’s including the pilots who did the flyover before kickoff. Same with UTEP yesterday. We had 7K for the CUSA championship last season in Murfreesboro and probably had 10K the last time we played in the championship in Kentucky. How does football survive and actually make money at the G5/Independent level when you don’t have a fairly active fan base to support it. Not saying you have to sellout each game but you would think you would have to be over 15K4TIMES to keep the lights on.

Going independent is essentially mailing it in if you are good at something else.

Re: AD says future will bring more football independents

it's a given the flagship programs are going to give da finga to the NCAA and create their own cash cow once the current tv contracts begin to expire...the money is too large to ignore....

this is nothing new once it blew wide open in the first phase of realignment...

it's a gimme the small budget schools will become geographically dependent....

mac swac wtfe....it's on the horizon....

Re: AD says future will bring more football independents

Here is what the AAC is bringing to the table......Top 20 Cinci visiting Dilbertville. Enjoy the video because the core of it is actually badass not to mention the soundtrack.....but checkout the stadium on approach. Thats the reality of college football in the G5 today and imagine being THIS program.....with a multi million dollar stadium upgrade project finishing up......in the words of Clark Griswolds mother in law, "talk about pissing your money away."

Re: AD says future will bring more football independents

Even NASCAR might as well be in the G5........this was yesterday at the AAA Texas500 without a Cowboys game competing with the race.

It’s got to be less about this crappy conference opposition and more about today’s fan watching everything on their 80 inch Costco Visio while eating one of those $4 rotisserie chickens.......because those chickens are legit....

Re: AD says future will bring more football independents

Like many others these days, the idiots running the corporations are listening to Wall Street instead of Main Street and think that pandering to the PC will win them more success.  NASCAR and football are probably the two best examples of how large of a failure that formula is.  Once you lose the customer and the "habit" is broken, there's no getting those folks back.  I loved to watch the races and my Sundays were completely consumed by football for the first 40 years of my life.  I even watched college football games that I had no interest in...if football of any kind was on TV, I tuned in.  Not any more!  I've found other things to do that don't have PC announcers and commercials tailored to make me feel guilt for being a self-made white man.  Fuck all that shit!  I've got a whole lot more disposable money than ever before and I spend it where people think like me run the show.

Only to be drowned out by a stupid remark from Kelly Sanner.
