I’m suggesting something like this (as an example) spread across all G5 conferences. This would fill the Tuesday through Thursday night ESPN and ESPN2 schedules.McLeansvilleAppFan wrote: ↑Thu Jul 15, 2021 4:25 pmI bet that could happen and ESPN will come back and offer a lot less money to the SB schools. Maybe there could be a provision where schools that do not want weekday games receive less money than the schools that are playing Tue-Fri.Appstate88 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 15, 2021 2:21 pmI'd like to see him negotiate with ESPN so that no Sun Belt Team has to play more that (1) game out of the (12) games on a weekday night. All of the teams remaining (11) Football Games and Conference Championship Game would be played on Saturdays. It guarantees all teams will have at least (5) Saturday GameDays!
Also would like see the Sun Belt Conference negotiate with ESPN to see more sports especially in-conference Basketball and Baseball/Softball games on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 not just ESPN+.
ESPN needs live events for their schedule and they need to fill the weeknights, and there are only so many slots on Saturday for games. Between ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU we could have 12 games on a Saturday. Prig5 are getting most of those sadly, so maybe a G5 game of the week, and maybe SB gets one game every other week. Otherwise we are on ESPN+.
I would be OK with that but it would mean lot less TV. I stopped my ESPN a few years ago as I was tired of giving them $5 a month which basically was going to the Prig5 schools. I do take ESPN+ or plan to renew for the upcoming season.
MAC and MWC Tuesday
SBC and CUSA Wednesday
AAC and P5 Thursday
