SEC has three tigers.
Tbf I'm pretty sure "tiger" is the most common mascot in all of college football, "owl" less so.
In Temple's case it's because they were originally a night school - wondering what the story is for the other owls.
Nothing says SEC country like conformity.And two bulldogs.
Did you mean to finish that thought?...
Putting athletic success, facilities, recruiting footprint, fan support, revenues, academic standing, national media impact, geography and cultural fit to the side - home media market would drive me to the following expansion candidates: ...
I went back. Houston + SMU or TCU is obvious.Did you mean to finish that thought?
BYU, UNLV, KU, SDSU?
In the latest sign of James Madison’s likely move from the Football Championship Subdivision to the Football Bowl Subdivision and into the Sun Belt Conference, the school’s Board of Visitors will hold an emergency meeting on Friday.
JMU sent out notice of the meeting on Tuesday morning.
There was not one previously scheduled until Nov. 18-19.
Once the Board of Visitors approve of the jump from FCS status to FBS status and a conference change from the Colonial Athletic Association, where the Dukes have been longstanding members, to the Sun Belt, the University can move forward into the next part of the process. That involves earning approval from the state.
We already have entertaining basketball. KU already plays here because of all the damn alums.
Adding KU would give us another good candidate for a deep run in the tournament, though. I really don’t think any of those other schools do much in that regard.We already have entertaining basketball. KU already plays here because of all the damn alums.
All that does is divide the same pie by more mouths. TV isnt gonna pay for those names because they already know what those schools ratings are like: nobody watches them but their own alums.
Swap SDSU with NM and you have my dream scenario. And yes, I realized the cali schools won't allow SDSU in.
I wish I didn’t know. But because my wife went to a small college and CU doesn’t have a baseball team, she adopted them, being our local team at the time, and I have spent more soul sucking afternoons at that field than I care to remember.
Why UNM? Let's just let them go/stay to the Wac or Mwc. The Cal schools can eat **** and let sdsu in
It is a careful line to walk, but I personally appreciate that the Pac12 wouldn't look at a guy like Briles. He should be in jailNot that I would want Briles anywhere near any program I was a fan of, but the PAC should be careful not to high and mighty themselves right into athletic irrelevance (if it hasn’t happened already).
