MW Spring Meetings 2017
http://www.themw.com/news/basketball-com...06-06-2017

The MW ended the spring meetings today. Here is a quick summary.

1. Focus on basketball scheduling to improve getting multiple bids.

2. The Board received detailed information regarding the current media rights landscape and engaged in an in-depth discussion of the Mountain West’s favorable positioning with regard to opportunities across multiple linear, digital and emerging platforms.

3.The Board endorsed a new approach in communications, digital/social media and the MW Network, designed to raise the profile of the league and its member-institutions.

Something seems afoot regarding the TV situation if there was a lot of discussion about it. Also, the discussion about raising the MW Network profile.

RE: MW Spring Meetings
The MWC needs to do all it can to raise its profile, which means have 2-3 dominant teams in football that win high-profile games vs the P5 & bowl games, and get wins in the NCAA tournament. The MWC is basically in no-man's land as far as the national consciousness is concerned, hell even the PAC12 is an afterthought to most people east of the I-35 corridor.

Perhaps the MWC will pursue some games on Twitter like CUSA, just to get more eyeballs since ESPN/CBSSN don't often give MWC teams favorable time slots.

RE: MW Spring Meetings
Glad to see here Mad Macgyver.
We have some games on the MW twitter account, but I am hoping they are talking about a channel for on demand games on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire.

Could be hints of other TV players when the current one ends. I think BeIN and Stadium may get involved, especially Stadium with the Tribune stations coming into the fold that fills a lot of the gaps that Sinclair had in the western US.
