Re: Road to Bowl Season

I want a fucking explanation. Were those other garbage CUSA teams really seen as a better option by the bowls?

MTSU? They can't even draw 10,000 people at home.

Or is this just a result of us not having an AD? Surely there was *someone* who could have handled this...

Face it, we were clowns almost all of the season, and our legacy is exhausted.

I don't doubt any of that, but USM would have brought twice as many fans to New Orleans as MTSU will.

I like MTSU. For whatever reason, I tend to pull for them. But they're one of those schools that just doesn't seem to have a market for football. They've been consistently good and people just don't care.

Why invite them? Is it a TV thing maybe? I'm just so sick of the whole TV thing. Eventually maybe I'll get rid of it. I got cable for sports and they only showed 1 USM game all year.

A bowl would have been 2. That honestly makes a bowl- and cable- worthwhile. But, oh, we've got our precious gaddamned streaming and LA Tech!

Man, **** ***. You translate.

Re: Road to Bowl Season

I don’t watch CUSA football unless USM is on. I did enjoy the two games in Hattiesburg. I do watch AAC ball, ACC and SEC ball. I Have had enough Sunbelt. Our fans want a regional conference. We are not in the AAC because G wanted a regional conference. Just damn.

Re: Road to Bowl Season

Giannini belongs in a regional center of some sort. That I do not doubt.

Re: Road to Bowl Season

Easy now.  G wanted a regional with some aac members.  Same as I.  Not a sunbelt regional.

Btw.  He was correct in the assumption that the aac was not the long term answer.  He was much smarter than you think.

This is a good description of the actual thought process (which wasn't SUNWACUSA) and it was not always a bad idea. A lineup like like Houston, Memphis, USM, UAB, UCF, Tulsa, Tulane, and a few others might have made a lot of sense. All of the schools I mentioned are reasonably close, good at football, and have decent (i.e. non-MTSU) levels of real fan support.

Instead we get CUSA on steroids, with teams in Massachusetts playing teams in Texas. Ultimately I suspect every team we're talking about should be an independent, but Title IX makes that difficult.
