Next year we only have 2 Wednesday night games and no Tuesday night games.

Streaming is the future. The only ASN games I saw were streamed on ESPN3 if I recall correctly. We use PSVue for live cable and major network programming. "Cable" will be dead soon enough, and dish services will be for those in the sticks.

I agree but I will say I get pretty excited about Thursday games. If you are a lower brand it gives you the spotlight.

BTW, the CUSA board is having fun with this news. Some think the sky is falling. Others are claiming good riddance. This is only good for CUSA *IF* another outlet picks up the option on their contracts.

Cutting the cord is gaining in popularity I recently did it saving 70 a month.
ASN was a good idea but should be run more regionally and almost as a non-profit.
The conferences in a given area should supply the content for free for a number of years.
Use it as an advertising vehicle for the conference until numbers pick up.
Eventually turning a profit and paying the conferences.
