This makes sense...I am not sure why we haven't done this.

I doubt it is or will be a bust. This year there is very limited inventory to put over there. Once we get past Covid-19 there will be much more on it.

RE: ESPN+ a BUST
On top of limited schedules, postponements have forced games to be moved from espn3 and ESPN+ to the primary ESPN channels. That will continue if games keep getting postponed.

With the schedule of FBS games doubling over the next few weeks compared to the last few weeks, there will be more espn3 and ESPN+ games.

Exactly. Its good news that CUSA hasn't been on Plus. The games all got moved to where someone not looking specifically for them could actually see them.

CLT is not too smart paying for DirectTV. CLT should listen to Joel Embiid because Hulu has live sports.

For $75 a month I get live TV with every sport channel, Disney +, and ESPN +. Then I cancel it after college football season (only to resume it during the super bowl/ NBA Finals) because I have no contract and I would rather be outside.

clt is also fond of being outside.

CUSA schools make $400,000 each from media rights. I guess in today's media rights market that could be considered no money.

Yes. In today's college football money, $400,000 is nothing. Every other FBS conference makes more from their media rights than C-USA. Lets remove Judy and get someone that can build us a conference owned network focused on maximizing exposure and brand development.
