Tulsa, CUSA is now in the driver's seat.
How many times were Tulsa football games telecast on ESPN and FOX, was it 13? You have good bowls in your neighborhood, Dallas, Armed Forces, and probably pick up some more against the expanded NonAQ's like MWC and Nbe (before it collapses).

In Nbe, you don't know what in the heck you got with this tv contract. NBC is going to sell some games? To who? And where does that leave Tulsa? If TU joins Nbe, TU has just forfeited control of its very fine and widely tv telecasted sports program.

With Nbe forced to NBS and whoever tv network they sell programs, that means CUSA will have the primary NOnAQ postion with ESPN and FOX. Do you think ESPN and FOX are going to buy the bull poop that is Nbe? Heck NO! What is likely to happen is that ESPN and FOX look to CUSA, now nicely expanded, to fill out the spots not taken by BCS. And ESPN and FOX, with their marketing and ability to sell advertising, are in a position to do more for CUSA.

Nbe gets $2M? My guess is that drops even more when UConn and Cincy figure out how to get out of the Nbe clustersmuch. And, no doubt Houston and SMU will do everything they can to beg MWC for an invite.

In the meantime, the very good CUSA contract will be coming up for a renewal in a few years. Now, you know how the Nbe boyz shoot their mouth off right and left. They had and have their heads so far up their rear ends its a wonder their belly button doesn't pop off. Now the Nbe boyz are shooting off their mouths that CUSA tv contract is going to drop in dollars!!! Really? Isn't if funny how the Nbe boys make a prounoucement pulled out of their rear ends--and think it is the gospel truth?

Because of its stability, CUSA might be able to move forward. Bowls undoubtedly need assured matchps and CUSA can provide that. So, as good as CUSA's bowls are, I expect CUSA to step it up.

Tulsa, you have everything on your platter now, a nice CUSA/West division that TU fans can travel to, that alumni in Texas can come to, that TU recruits, and it fits nicely in FOX's tv broadcast area of Louisiana, Texas, NM, and Oklahoma, bowls, tv, everything! Everything that TU needs is right here in CUSA/West.

TU leadership needs to get with SOuthern Miss and Marshall and start a CUSA wide PUBLIC effort to bring some sense to this out of control clustersmuck that has assumed a life of its own, based on the false premise of its fans and alumni who think they are something that they are not.
