Nippert renovation
Best-ever football recruiting class
10-win football season
Annual bball NCAA tourney participants
New basketball arena
Improvement in non-revenue sports (women's vball and bball)

And we're still making debt payments on the initial Varsity Village construction from the pre-Big East days, right?


Holy sh!t.


We have been very fortunate with the overall stewardship of our athletic programs. We're efficient.

$51 million from the Big Ten is more than just TV money. It's tier 3 rights (which I think the AAC lets us keep). It's NCAA tournament credits. It's bowl revenue. It's the bonus the existing schools get because Rutgers and Maryland still aren't receiving full shares. It's also hockey and lacrosse games on the Big 10 network (which UC wouldn't get and which are actually quite lucrative).

51:2 is not an apples-to-apples comparison. A true comparison would be closer to 47:2.8 - or some other similarilly gigantic gap in funding. The revenue gap is still significant. The $51MM number just looks better in the article though.

I think its impressive what UC has been able to do with the available funding. Nice to dream about what they could do with even another $5MM per year

For the past 5 years, we have been able to supplement the revenue from the conference (media, bowl money, etc.) with the Big East exit fee money. That money is now gone.

The AAC's media deal expires sometime in 2019. The AAC is free to negotiate with ESPN currently, and if a new deal is not struck by February 2019, the conference is free to negotiate with outside bidders. This media rights deal looms big for the schools in the conference.

Do you know when the talks between the AAC and ESPN actually begin? I heard they will go to April 1st when we will either accept the ESPN offer or begin talks with one of the other networks. It seems to me if the talks will end by April 1 st then they should begin no later than mid December. I assume Christmas week will be taken off and that only gives about 6 to 7 weeks time to make and approve the decisions. If ESPN shows no real interest it could end earlier. But generally speaking I find it odd that the AAC has given so little information concerning this matter to the fans and public.
