    Richards didn't do anything according to anyone who was involved. The big key was Lt. Gov Bob Bullock who pushed BOTH Tech and BU in. It would have been a 10 team league according to TTU's AD at the...

    Counterpoint:

    1- WVU won 3 BCS games (UGA, OU, Clemson) and defeated favored teams in each after winning conference titles.

    2- On the title front WVU was a game away (or a Pat White injury away...

    Kids who were just learning to drive or older (the group that might really remember the GT title in 90') then are five years from moving out of the desired demographic (18-45) and currently comprise...

    Which school I pull for means jack squat. I watch much more than BU and have for decades.

    1- To a certain extent title implications are everything for most leagues not named the SEC. I mean the ACC has FSU, Miami and Clemson.... and a bunch of teams that depend on implications. If you...

    It probably counts in the tv exec's data but the SportsMediaWatch data that the aggy ran his numbers from didn't have that game listed so it didn't get included. They may not have data for it.

    And we end up winning.
    PAC had an average of 7 appearances per school, we had 9. If you take the top 70 appearances for the B12 (7 per school) we averaged 2.3 million viewers to their 1.9 million....

    The answer depends on what title implications are involved and what part of the season it was. BU-KSU drew well in 2012 despite having to go head to head with Stanford-Oregon and if both KU and...

    Nice strawman argument. Nobody argued we got too much airtime, just that getting more games nationally rated skews the numbers on the aggy blogger's chart as it's the least desirable 1/3 of our...

    It's definitely taking them a while to get off the ground. 800k revenue to each school isn't much compared to the BTN, LHN, or SoonerSports deals.

    You miss the point entirely. Our tv deal (mainly due to FS1) had more national tv windows per-school than those other leagues. We provided just as much quality inventory as the B1G or ACC...

    Big 12 teams averaged 9 games per school on nationally rated networks. The SEC had about 8 and everyone else had 6.

    So other than the SEC it was the Big 12 fighting with it's hand tied behind...
