When someone has the time and energy please explain how CUSA media rights dipped to $500K per school. I'm pretty sure the budget for the conference central office staff & resources either rivals that or is more.

AAC has yet to formally respond to C-USA’s reorganization plan of combining both leagues & then dividing into 2 new leagues geographically. However, “there is absolutely no interest” from AAC to do so, sources told

The ones that have aren't gonna talk about it here. Plus you need to have an interested local media to suss out information. In Birmingham the media is focused on more important stories like Saban's lastest bowl movement and how it impacts the playoff picture.

Cusa has done a series of one year deals. With the league stance being that it doesn’t want to do weekday games, as well as past bad blood, ESPN wasn’t interested very much. Without ESPN aggressively pursuing the content beyond streaming rights, there are not market forces to drive up the price. Streaming rights also have costs baked into the deal.

Cusa broadcast payout is not as low as reported but it isn’t good and is quite a bit less valuable than it was before last realignment shifted that money to the American.

So much of all this is perception more than reality. But perceptions become realities.

Do the MAC and Sun Belt really have better media rights value? No. But they are making more than they used to, while C-USA through departures has taken a huge shave. The Sun Belt and MAC have embraced midweek football; C-USA is absent from that stage. Maction and Fun Belt is great marketing. Power 6 is great marketing.

C-USA on the other hand has allowed others to set the narrative. c-DOA. One-bid league. Downward trajectory. Put that with some underperformance and those perceptions start to impact recruiting and become reality.

The bigger picture is that C-USA still has stronger resources and healthier overall programs than either the Belt or the MAC, but you wouldn’t know that in the key indicators. And those two leagues are maximizing the window of opportunity.

Of course the value in the AAC payouts are on their way to other conferences right now, too

True but the payouts will be much higher than we get now even with the decrease. We are getting two cheeseburgers from Wahtaburger. AAC is eating prime rib and lobster at Ruth Chris. After the departures they will still be eating prime rib and lobster but we will be eating it at Red Lobster and Logan's. We may be eating cheeseburgers at a sleazy truck stop if we stay with a bandaid inside one of the burgers.

Yeah, I think we need to continue the march toward becoming the main attraction regardless of who play (football & basketball). People love winners regardless of who you're beating...just whoop ass in every corner of the globe and the flock will be flocking.

From the Memphis beat writer:

Aresco on AAC realignment timeline: "Within the next few weeks to a month."

Munz must be loving the move from the USM beat to the Memphis beat.

It's really hard for an AAC spokesman to comment while rolling in the floor laughing aloud at the very idea.

This is Jim Delaney trying to justify his fat consulting fee and Judy trying to pretend that she's out in front leading the charge to improve things three years too late.
