Man, when Troy travels to Mobile...you can expect a massive crowd. It'll be an easy roadtrip (and win 05-stirthepot) for our fans.

RE: Why the Belt Needs to Sign a Mid-Week TV Deal with ESPN
We've already got schedules for Navy and Miss State to come to Mobile. When those hit the schedule over the next few years our attendance will get a boost.

Don't get me wrong, I understand the need for our conference to have midweek games, doesn't mean I have to like it.. I just don't want it to become norm for any of our teams.

The biggest way to get notice, quicker then being on ESPN on a thur night is to win your non-conference games. When we, as a conference, start doing that, we will gain the attention of a larger audience.

I expect a good crowd for this game. It'll should be exciting with some good energy.

See that I would hate also but this is the beauty of conferences. Were looking at what 10-14 football members in this conference say we signed a weekday deal with ESPN and NBCSPORTS. ESPN already has a Mac deal so we would get maybe four games? It could be like Troy vs ULL on Espn one week. FAU vs FIU on ESPN. UTSA vs UNT on NBC Sports. South vs Bowling green on ESPN like towards the end of the season.

No team has more than one weekend game a season and the teams alternate every season. Gives a huge boost in conference revenue.

I hope we can take UAB off the schedule and start a in state rivalry with you guys instead. The UAB game just does not have the spark to be considered a rivalry.

That's another thing, if the NCAA was really interested in leveling the playing field, and this would really piss off the big schools, set a max of 6 home games a year, with 7 every third year. That would force the bigger schools to do more away games and may result in better non conference games throughout college football because some schools will not want to travel to some smaller schools. But should result in bringing in some of the bigger schools.

End the season with this game with the conference on the line and the rivalry will be born.
