  1. Houston and Temple come to mind as similars. I'd probably include ucf in there as well because Orlando is more than a college town, it's projected to be bigger than Tampa in our lifetime. San Diego State may be in that group as well, especially if you look past just football.
  2. Having all the upperclassmen and transfers are nice for a winning build. But it either clicks or it doesn't, and can we argue that we're clicking? The AAC is competitive enough to where I don't think that a team can go o'fer in OOC play then expect to be in the running for a conference championship (sorry PUC). FCS games don't count in the metric either way. In this case, wouldn't it be better to consolidate the rebuild (you said yourself that the next couple years look young) and prepare them for a better start next season? Again I'm not sure the difference between being bad bowl eligible (maybe?) with Barnett et al at the helm and having a straight up rebuilding year are that far apart, with the benefit obviously being a more experienced group next season and beyond.
  3. This may not be the hottest take but if this is a rebuilding year then why not just hand it over to McLeod so he can be seasoned for next year? What good is Barnett if he only gets you an extra win or two (maybe) over the course of the season vs McLeod? If it's the difference between 10-2 and 8-4 maybe but what's the difference between 4-8 and 3-9 really?
  4. Judging from the name of it, looks like the money came from a donor. It's creative, gotta give them that.
  5. It's a little early for my predictions but I must say I like our chances better now that the other guys just lost their starting QB, they'll have to rely on a grad transfer or a true freshman now.
  6. Why would you explain an analogy to me that not only lacked merit to begin with but ultimately had nothing to do with my own assertion? Why did you feel the need to go into poorly thought out detail that Bianchi is a dolt/homer/etc when we know what he is already? Deflection is the answer. You're doing it again above. I calculated out a minimum 1.3/game payday, noting it was likely higher, referencing what Bianchi said in subsequent post; the actual number he said is meaningless. Does that compute? It looks like the forbes article made its way here after all. Moving on, this usatoday finance spreadsheet says that there's only a 6 mil difference between the two schools in facilities/overhead cost. https://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/finances/.
  7. Is Wisky even supposed to be good this year? Traditionally with them if you stop/slow the run, you beat them.
  8. No I didn't, I posted real numbers from an impartial source that showed you were wrong. I then followed up by saying even Mike Bianchi says its 3-4 million, but also that there's no citations listed where he got that from so 'grain of salt alert'. You still being butt hurt over having your (I presume time consuming) research disproven, you resorted to poor reading comprehension at best to try to make it out like I'm some sort of Bianchi apologist or follower...which is asinine. You also followed up with the asinine analogy with baseball and football, which is almost as bad as not reading clearly.
  9. Seeing as how they didn't have 7 home games without the postseason that year there's really no argument that they need 7 home games. Which all that does is call bs on their strategy, meaning they could afford at least one 2-1 every now and again.
  10. So I either post sources that are easily googled (first page), as if I need validation from anyone here anyway, just to be called a troll if I do...or I refuse to provide links and clicks and am called a closet fan anyway. I'm clearly dealing with the highest caliber fans out there. You guys are pathetic. It's obvious they are making bank, certainly enough to cover their cheap ass stadium-which is all I posed to begin with. Your faux rage clouded you so much that you can't even acknowledge the basics.
