Hold on just a minute! ..
I seem to remember that Curry graduated from high school at the same time as Michael Vick. Also, Vick's coach, Tommy Reamon, who was like a father to MV told Frank that he (Reamon) would not allow MV to go to Tech unless Frank agreed to stop recruiting Curry (who was not going to us anyway). Curry had a half-way decent but not great career at UNCheat. Would you really trade Curry for Vick?! Seriously?!

Even if Texas Tech is a member of the Pac-16 in football,
it won't be wearing the Pac-16 patch on its jerseys or have the Pac-16 banner/logo advertising on the athletic facilities for the sports it is a member of the MWC, WAC, Sun Belt, C-USA, and Southland conferences. What benefit does the Pac-16 Network have promoting games for these other conferences? If they do decide to televise other conferences' games, then they may have to give those conferences some sort of fee for those rights. Even if a conference doesn't have its own network, it may still own the rights to televise the athletic events of their members.

Timing of contract
ESPN signed the contract at the height of the rights run up when NBC and Fox both launched their sports networks. The feeling was that either one of them would make an aggressive bid to have one of the major sports properties.

Plus, the deal includes international broadcast rights, and that is where the NBA's audience growth is coming from.

It was only a "great strategy" because the best player happened to be
from Virgnia. The key to the MNC game season was having the best player. The most important factor was having the best player. The same season would not have happened if another player from Virginia was plugged into MV1's place if recruiting Virginia players was the key to success. Great players are, and was then, and always will be, the great strategy.

They all abhor the bowl system in college football so it's a win for them.
They will never have to deal with the hypocrisy of going to one.

I believe it's more accurate to say Curry was RANKED as the
best player in the country. History proves our MV1 was ACTUALLY, REALLY, CERTAINLY, WITHOUT A DOUBT, the best player in the country. Frank deserves praise for making the correct decision on which QB to offer.

Really?
His legacy will be defined by not signing one recruit? It's more likely to be defined by signing Vick than by not signing Curry.

As awful as the Orange Bowl was they had much better crowds
...the passion is gone from Miami and will be until they get closer to the campus. The talent in that area is ridiculous and the National Championships under multiple coaches once was amazing.

Then they basically left the town.

Revenue goes in one pile regardless of source. The conferences only own
the members' home games of the sports being televised. So let's say TT is in the PAC for football and basketball and in the Mountain West for everything else. If the Mountain West has no network for the non-revs, then the PAC could theoretically own all of TT's home games for broadcast on the PACN regardless of sport. But if the Mountain West has a network, TT could have the non-rev home games on that network instead for some negotiated amount and they wouldn't be shown on the PACN.

edit: And taking if further, perhaps TT agrees to play X number of non-conference road games against Mountain West opponents in the revenue sports each year to raise the profile of the MWC and its network (if it has one).

Miami charges $99 for their season ticket package, and they still can't...
...get people to attend. Building a stadium isn't going to fix that, but if they want to build one, they should do it next to the Florida Turnpike. Maybe build it next to the Homestead NASCAR track and include free admission to their games to anyone with NASCAR tickets.

While I like stadiums on campus, Pitt is 11 minutes from the stadium. Miami
is one hour.

To me Pitt is not a big deal, Miami may be the worst move for a stadium in history and hurts the ACC and VT.

posted in the thread Buzz's basketball camp by vpi98hokie on the Virginia Tech Basketball Board 5 hours ago
I worked a basketball camp at Tech for Ricky Stokes in 2002
It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed it tremendously. A lot of local and state basketball coaches who had a wealth of experience. That was also the summer after Maryland won its national title. There was a story in the Washington Post about how quickly UMd's camp sold out that summer compared to previous years (and how much more expensive it was.)

This seemed kind of laughable to the counselors with one person pointing out that 1.) Gary Williams hadn't figured out how to coach between 2001 and 2002 2.) There probably wasn't much difference in the way Gary Williams taught a layup and everyone else and 3.) The VT camp was probably $200 cheaper and campers got drastically more individual attention. Then again, maybe campers paid marginally more attention if Lonnie Baxter told them something rather than Dimari Thompkins.

Not related to your son's experience, but I thought worth sharing. I hope it's a great experience and he suits up in the Cassell one day.

The difference in being an urban landlocked..
University vs. being a small college town University with more land options. I like NCSU Carter Finley but I don't like it's remote location considerably distant from the campus. The Univ of Miami will likely never have a stadium anywhere near Coral Gables.

To me, having a stadium on or near campus is all part of the game day experience.....

Seemed to be engaging well with those at the table. Looks like a good fit for VT baseball and the university!

ESPN may just start offering all its networks streaming
ESPN bought a 1/3 stake of BAM for $1B from MLB for for a reason, and I would bet that they are setting up a streaming version of all the ESPN networks that people can subscribe to without having a cable/satellite subscription.

The NHL, MLB, HBO, WatchESPN/ESPN3 and WWE all use BAM for streaming all of their channels/games. With the exception of HBO, the NHL, MLB and WWE all charge about $10 a month for a subscription, and I would think that ESPN would charge about the same for a streaming service. Rumor is that the WWE got more money by offering its pay per views on the WWE Network for $10 a month than they got from their $50 a month pay per views because of how much of that $50 went to the PPV provider and the sat/cable provider. I'm sure that the cable/sat operators take a chunk of that ESPN fee they charge now for themselves.

The only serious money Pitt has spent in years was on the hoops arena
Their football practice facilities are nice, but only because they share space with the Steelers as they do at Heinz Field.

Pitt doesn't spend a lot on coaching salaries either.
