I'd be OK for 1 home and 1 away game for EVERY mac team was MACtion, but have 0 Saturday November games for the whole conference is BS! How the league thought that was good for ANY of the schools is beyond me. Money is one thing, but seriously Is there a list of MW and AAC games in november compiled? I.E. X Friday games, Y Saturday Games, Z Tues/Wed. Games.

MAC has 18 weekday games in November on Tues-Thurs and then 3 after Thanksgiving. (21)
AAC has 2 Thursday November games. 4 November Friday games. with 2 after Thanksgiving (6)
MW has 3 Friday games 1 after Thanksgiving.

The MAC has 18 games where it's super difficult for working fans to get to games and we get the honor of ESPN3 for a lot of the games which are unpleasant to watch generally.
I think the ship has sailed on getting out of the MAC, and I'm not sure what we'll see from the campaign to sustain. Part of me would like to see X/Y completed. I.e. We need 60k for the gymnastics foam pit, we have 8k towards that goal, but that wont' happen.

Yeah, the last one in the screenshots, they're not posting what channel the weekday games will be on, because at this point they don't know (but will be on ESPN2 / ESPNU for many).

To me, there's nothing more beautiful than playing on a frigid November Tuesday or Wednesday night on ESPN3 in front of a few hundred drunk and frozen fans. 03-drunk 03-pissed

But the Commissioner is going to make the speed of the game a priority so instead of a 3hr 25 minute game you would have 3hr 20 minute game.
5 minutes less to be frozen or drunk.

Perhaps the Huskie Stadium remodel will need to cater to 15,000 fans instead of 30,000 fans and have the camera lines be best in class.

But that huge savings of 5 minutes will be more than made up by the extra 10 minutes of commercials on ESPN3. Thus, the hearty fans in the stadium will begin to lose their appendages from frostbite or even die from hypothermia. But, hey, think about all that great publicity from the national webcast!! 02-13-banana

Here's a link that doesn't make the MAC look so good -- but I guess any press is good press for Carey...

I do not know if I like this definition of "bad wins". You can only play the teams on your schedule. Is it the Huskies' fault they played Buffalo and Kent last year?

If anything is a bad win, I would say it is when you barely beat team that you should have destroyed. For example, when the Ohio State beat the Huskies 20-13 in 2015, that was a bad win for OSU.
