Any word on C-USA tv deals?
I know that C-USA athletic directors met recently in Florida. No news came out of that meeting but the UTEP AD did tweet that it happened.

We know that BEIN is around for the coming school calendar year but this spring, our deals with espn and cbssports expire. Any one heard anything?

No TV deals, but many rounds of golf were played and many stone crabs and cold beverages were devoured.

RE: Any word on C-USA tv deals?
I figure ESPN will be the same, give them content for free in exchange for a little air time. CBS, would not surprise me if it doesn't change, there are a few games they want, the rest they can live without. BEin and Stadium the same. Fox is never coming back. These are my predictions. We have to earn our way back into the ESPN fold unfortunately, accept mid week games, or live with status quo. The powers that be, want to force smaller programs to quit, they already have a conference that was willing to do whatever they wanted for airtime, the MAC. They have the AAC that has more household names, they have the MWC, which isn't as high as the AAC and the media deal shows, but then they look at us and the belt and say "why?"

We gotta earn an identity and a reputation, we haven't done that and aren't close to doing that.

If CUSA starts doing weekday football, Marshall will be on the phone with the MAC.

Just get a reliable streaming site that works and is a fair price. Its 2018, it should not be this hard. But C-USA continues to botch everything at every turn.

Getting all the revenue sports off CUSATV and on ESPN3 at minimum would be a start.

I'd take Stadium as well, especially if ESPN starts charging $5 a month for ESPN3.

RE: Any word on C-USA tv deals?
I have to say, Im kinda surprised there hasnt already been something announced. The current deal for every CUSA broadcast partner other than BeIn ends in May. Of even greater concern, preliminary 2018 football television schedules are typically announced in early April. Thats just a couple of months away. You have to think this thing is going to get wrapped up pretty soon. That said, ESPN Plus is in its very early stages. Maybe thats part of the hold up---because I'd think that ESPN would pay for CUSA content for that platform in the belief it wold attract subscribers to the new service.
