@PeteThamel
Sources: Tulane has extended the contract of head coach Willie Fritz. The 2020 season is the first of a seven-year deal that extends through the 2026 season. Tulane wants to keep the 60-year-old Fritz at Tulane the rest of his career. He's 15-12 with two bowl wins since 2018.

Interesting, it was determined to be cheaper to bid out production vs. going inhouse. I saw production costs and control center upgrades built into budget forecasts. I'm guessing this is part of finding cost savings during covid times.

#Flagship.

You'll notice that there are a ton of Sun Belt games on primary ESPN Channels until November.

Arkansas State and Tulsa get on ESPN 2 over ECU and UCF. Marshall v. App State gets moved to CBS at 3:30 PM over SMU.

Some interesting movement and exposure for the two other G5 conferences playing while the AAC's seems relatively flat.

This is interesting. Has anyone else heard what your school/team is doing? I would think that this would be the preferred route (hiring a production company on a game by game basis) vs. hiring full time staff when you're not sure the amount of games you're producing and when, and/or using grad assistants and all that.

Arkansas State just postponed their game with Georgia State because they can’t field a 2 deep this week due to covid.

I'm confused. I thought Ga State had ULaLa this week? Did that change just happen really fast?

Lol at people just now realizing that the ESPN+ part of the TV deal is going to be a thorn in the side of the conference.

But please, let's continue to sing the praises of a commissioner that has done nothing for the league.

@RossDellenger
So, the Big Ten (1) doesn't have a built-in bye week, (2) has a 21-day suspension of play for players testing positive and (3) has a shutdown threshold of 5% positivity rate on a team.

Hang on to your butts.

Lol this is such a bull**** take.

We are losing (roughly) one game each on football to ESPN+ it will usually be those FCS games, games that were shown on ESPN 3 before. We actually have more guarenteed games on linear than we did before. The only people this will really suck for is those who have CBSsports in their regular basic cable package. For those who had to pay for it they can easily switch to ESPN+ and it's probably cheaper than the add on. For those who didn't have the CBSsports option (about 40% of the country) this is actually better, since its available all over the world.

Not saying we should keep Aresco (2m a year is absurd for what he delivers), but let's be honest in our criticism.

That was my understanding before the release this week. I get that we no longer have an FCS game, and one of your games goes to the chopping block. I'm just surprised ours is ECU-UCF.

Wonder if we thought we were guaranteed X number of games over linear platforms, but we were actually taking the difference between required ESPN+ games and total games. Maybe we still have to hit that requirement with less total games.

It's either an early subscriber grab(smart but fug them), or more games will end up on ESPN+ than we think.
