  1. LOL, Miami and WMU aren't leaving the NCHC if Buffalo starts hockey. There would be no incentive too. We'd both probably schedule them out of conference though.
  2. But Fox Sports North is a regional sports network, why would any national exclusivity effect it? Was it not allowed last year? What was all the other schools Tier 2 TV last season? I expected to see WMU on Fox Sports Detroit but didn't and was surprised. Was this because CBS was blocking it?
  3. Yep, it's our version of MidCo Sports Channel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Warner_Cable_Sports_Channel_%28Ohio%29
  4. The biggest complaint about UND’s new hockey league, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference, was the television deal, which barred the league’s teams from appearing on national networks outside of CBS Sports. Fenton has been in contact with officials at CBS Sports this summer and multiple sources tell the Herald that CBS appears willing to alter, in some way, the exclusivity clause in the network's contract with the NCHC. http://www.grandfork...ing-tv-contract More national TV hockey games on the way. At a minimum this sounds like it will allow for Fox College Sports to pick up ga

  6. Big XII Commish was just on Doug Gotlieb ESPN Radio show and said the stipend will be for ALL athletes.... ..... Which includes Big Ten Hockey teams. I sure hope the NCHC agrees to offer stipends. I don't think the WCHA or Atlantic Hockey, ECAC will be able to afford them. Gives the NCHC a wider recruiting gap margin over those three conferences. The NCHC, BTH, Hockey East will be the College Hockey haves... Lets get Arizona State on board too.
  7. Voting on the Council shall be weighted on matters other than football as follows: - representatives from the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC will be weighted 1x4; - Representatives from the American Athletic Conference, Conference USA (C-USA), Mid-American Conference (MAC), Mountain West Conference and Sun Belt Conference will be weighted 1x2, - and the remaining 22 conferences, and two student-athletes and two designated faculty seats will be weighted 1x1. MAC has twice as much say as the Big East now. Thats amusing.
  8. College Hockey News (@chnews) 8/8/14, 10:22 AM Big Ten was one of 5 conferences granted more autonomy from NCAA to do -- whatever. Also, BC and Notre Dame. What does it mean for hockey? Is the NCHC going to pay stipends if Big Ten Hockey does? Would the WCHA be able to afford it? What would that do for recruiting?
  9. More smoke about Arizona State being serious about adding hockey. Wouldn't the NCHC be their best option? http://www.collegehockeynews.com/news/2014/08/08_arizona_state_ad_wants_to.php
  10. What split? The new governance is already agreed upon and will be voted on August 7th in 3 days. There is no split at all and the new stipends and CFP contract only make the FBS - FCS gap even larger while permanently ties the 10 FBS conferences together. The most concern of this new cost of attendance should be in other sports, NOT football. Miami will be making millions more than before. The cost of $5,000 full cost of attendance stipend x 300 total Miami scholarships = $1.5 million. So the new CFP money more than covers that $1.5 million with money to spare from TV deals etc...
  11. Don't get me wrong, I think 2 or 3 schools in the Big Sky want and probably will go FBS...... BUT it will be by them leaving the Big Sky Conference to join the MWC, CUSA, or Sun Belt..... Just like what happened to the CAA (Old Dominion and GA State) and SoCon (App St and GA Southern) and Southland.... There will be no Big Sky FBS and Big Sky FCS. It Will be Big Sky FCS and Montana and Montana State leaving for a completely different conference. Fullerton senses the restlessness. It is really weird how much of an obsession Fullerton has with Idaho. Every comment the guy makes is about
  12. I think you guys are setting yourselves up for massive disappointment. It doesn't matter what Fullerton "wants" to do, the rules won't allow it and even the "permissive" portion of autonomy doesn't give authority to change something like that even if the P5 wanted it (they don't, evident by all the other rules and complaining about no more FBS teams). Fullerton is making himself and the conference look foolish. He sounds bitter and almost identical to Mike Yeager of the CAA talking about a new east coast FBS league and then having a temper-tantrum almost immedietly before Old Dominion, Ma
  13. The argument is no different than the MAC or AAC or MWC saying they should be P5 as a whole just because UConn, Cincinnati, BYU, NIU, Boise State, etc have bigger budgets, success, etc. vs Wake Forest, Washington State.... If individuals schools band together maybe, but not as leagues.
  14. Lets get real, neither the Big Sky or MVFV can or is capable or should move up to FBS. There are a couple teams from both that could make the cut but neither league as a whole has any business trying. Montana, Montana State, North Dakota, and North Dakota State could but the rest in both leagues are not (maybe a S Dakota). I'd abandon the thought of either "league" and focus on a collection of both leagues + Idaho + NMSU etc. and you guys can pick on Eastern Michigan all you want and nearly all of the MAC would agree but you can't just kick out EMU anymore than we'd agree that Wake Forest
  15. There's been a couple mentions about hockey over on the Big Sky FBS NCAA thread if you need a quick fix

  17. Was Fullerton the Commish when Idaho left the Big Sky originally? He's like a creepy guy who has never gotten over his woman leaving him. I'd be curious to hear what Dr. Phil would say.
  18. Why is Fullerton so obsessed with Idaho? He's like a creepy stalker. Every press conference he mentions Idaho Football. Weird.

  20. Yes, its not just the Big Ten benefiting but they were the catalyst. Now they are off on their own, they will be working with ESPN who will have exclusivity. That exclusivity pulled Big Ten home games away from both CBSSN and NBCSN. The Notre Dame / NBCSN TV deal was also a result of the Big Ten breaking up the conferences as they needed a home. NBCSN has exclusivity of ND home games that CBSSN can now no longer broadcast. Thus CBSSN who would have otherwise scheduled a bunch of Big Ten, Notre Dame, and Hockey East games (Boston College) was left without programming because of exclusiv
  21. Anyway, the break-up of the CCHA and WCHA by the Big Ten is what led to the new TV deals. Notre Dame was allowed to pursue their own national deal and the Big Ten can now leverage their conference to force ESPN to promote college hockey. ESPN was never really interested in college hockey or promoted it until now. You can't just buy the "sports section" of the New York Times, if you want to buy the "sports section" you also have to buy the "business section", "weather section", and "comics" whether you read them or want them or not. If ESPN wants to buy the "football and basketball" sec
  22. If I'm not mistaken there is no Hockey East NBCSN TV Deal, it is a Notre Dame TV deal. 12 Notre Dame home games and 4 random HE games per year. The NCHC TV deal much better than the Hockey East TV deal for everybody not named Notre Dame. The contract was signed by ND not HE except for the HE playoffs.

  24. Also, as much as I hated what the Big Ten did by breaking up the WCHA and CCHA, it could really benefit college hockey eventually and bring college hockey main-stream. Big Ten started pushing hockey games and commercials on ESPN and will likely have them include a package of regular games on ESPN with their new Media contract negotiations. Big Ten has the leverage to make ESPN fully push the product if they want football and basketball games as part of a package that ESPN definitely wants. This would bring college hockey content main-stream on ESPN, SportsCenter, and finally coverage on
  25. I agree and I think WMU and Miami also agrees that CCHA 2.0 is a step back. I also agree that the NCHC should let BG in but only if they agree to renovate their arena and better prioritize hockey. And I think BG would agree to that. WMU and Miami already are starting out of conference series with BG again. I think that would be the best outcome for everybody. However there would also need to be a 10th team and pulling a 10th team from the WCHA should not be the case as that then destabilizes the WCHA and then could have indirect negatives toward the NCHC. But who is that team? The o
