Have you ever been involved with the church? Politics and religion mix quite well in the church hierarchy. Catholic institutions do not have to be reasonable if they choose not to.

Go study some Jesuit and Marianist history and compare the style and philosophy. Jesuit's tended (and dare I say still are) hard liners.

Whatever happened to Women's field hockey or was it Lacrosse? That was talked about by Dr Dan only a few years ago (no more than 3). There were comments that, that was a team sport which would have helped our 'cause' with the BE.

That talk vanished shortly after it was brought up. Seems dead now. So did the feedback from some BE members indicate that, "No that wouldn't help us either."

Since it's all about money...I don't see why the BE would seriously consider Dayton. Saint Louis, in a major city, another matter entirely.

What school(s) in the MAAC would be worth forming a new conference with?

We need to find out the specfic barriers and make a deal. So many issues go away with us in the BE. UD needs to find a way.

It's a 2 way street. They have to want us to join. Right now their is absolutely no indication that they are looking to expand and want to invite us. Until then, all we can do is keep winning A10 titles in as many sports as possible to show a well rounded athletic department.

I understand and agree that winning A10 titles is part of that.

We need to determine when there would be a potential opening, present our case.

It is also a two way street regarding recruits wanting to come here, yet we have 10 threads about that. If there was an answer for the BE or recruits or whatever, there would be no need for a thread.

What is UD doing to get us into the BE? Where did we fall short last time? What needs to happen moving forward?

1. Correct
2. Incorrect - X is scared of UD. We have $500 million+ endowment and are preparing to run a capital campaign that could easily double that. X has an endowment of $140 million and their Athletic Dept. is treading water. They fear the longer term competition.
3. Not an issue
4. Not an issue
5. Not an issue
6. Correct, that is how Marquette dragged Creighton into the BE instead of UD getting in.
7. It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$. Sports is getting more expensive and the BE is only going to add teams that add $$$$$$$$$$ to the overall pot or add a unique visibility or long term return that they feel is worth it.

City size does not dictate financial benefit of each city.

UD brings in larger crowds and is the significantly larger TV market when you look specifically at NCAA basketball.

I was raised in another denomination if you will. So let me ask you of the Catholic faith, is there really a lot of politics in the church between Marianists & Jesuits? Can I presume like a college fraternity there may sometimes be an unhealthy competition- where a member of the frat will receive preferential treatment due to that alone? I had presumed being a private Catholic university would have checked off that box but I am sensing that is too naive...

Actually that's not really true. The Dayton DMA has high ratings. But it is lower population. A 2.0 rating in a metro DMA of 500,000 brings in about 10,000 homes. A 0.5 rating in a DMA with 3,000,000 homes brings in 15,000 homes.

Dayton provides ratings, but not eyeballs. And advertisers pay for eyeballs.

To be fair, though. If the games weren't buried on premium tier networks, I bet the ratings for UD's games would be even higher.

Dayton wins big and they'll have no choice. Location or institutional fit isn't gonna get it done.

If Dayton strings together a run of success like VCU or Wichita and they'll be more interested

I'm sure xubrew can correct me but I would think if the Big East gets a pedestrian TV deal next go around a lot of those schools are gonna be in trouble

Xavier and Butler have it's own arena. Villanova and St Johns have smaller on campus arenas they use. I wonder how a Georgetown, Seton Hall, Providence are gonna do renting out arenas. Georgetown and Seton Hall have attendance issues based on how their seasons are going. Renting an arena is an upfront cost and I'm sure all these folks are losing money on ancillary revenue

I would think there's a good chance UD is in better financial shape than many or most of these schools if TV money got on near equal footing

I'd pay like $70 a season, more in seasons it was likely they make the NCAA. That's provided the stream quality is good and something I can watch on a HD tv.

I would probably pay 75 to 100 if it included all home and road games and they were archived so I could rewatch them easily when I get home from the games that I do go to in person. UD could include the streaming package for season ticket holders too.

The only stipulation is that to get me to pay, the video and production quality must be much better than the current A10/UD streaming system. I'm not going to pay for a bunch of students who zoom in on the ball handler and cut away from live action for a 5 second replay.

I would pay much more -$500? I wonder at what point the conference would be able to make more off of subscribers as opposed to a network deal.

500? No way I'm paying that.

You can't price a streaming package more than a season ticket would be.

Georgetown and Seton Hall have attendance issues based on how their seasons are going. Renting an arena is an upfront cost and I'm sure all these folks are losing money on ancillary revenue

I would think there's a good chance UD is in better financial shape than many or most of these schools if TV money got on near equal footing
I'm sure Providence does pay to use the Dunkin' Donuts Center but I'm not sure how much. I do know though that the city wants PC playing there and rolls out the red carpet for them in many ways. A few years back they redid the concourse area of the arena and PC, including then head coach Tim Welsh, had their say in the redesign of it. Another words, for PC anyway, I think the city would figure out a way to make it work regardless of the loss of TV revenue for PC if that were to happen.

If they would televise all games I would seriously consider getting rid of my season tickets.

If you don't live in Dayton, the cost of the a season ticket does not make a difference. I pay $6 for a movie on demand all the time. I would have no problem paying double, triple that for the Flyers.

I don't live in Dayton either, but 500 total for a season would be around $16 a game which is too much imho. I could see $10 per game as the most I'd be willing to pay which would end up being around $300 for the season.

That's craziness... I can't believe people pay that for on-demand movies. I'd consider myself pretty well off and wouldn't do that.

You can get every game of the NHL/MLB/NFL for like $250.

I agree with you, but the schools are going to be trying to replace the money they won't be getting from the TV networks anymore so it's hard to tell how much it will end up being. I think $5 per game would be a reasonable figure, but I would only pay that much for UD games. I'm not going to pay that for some random game between teams I have no connection to.

There are many people that want to watch all those games so the cost of broadcasting can be spread out. I just think that the networks are going to have a harder time justifying the expenditures on some games that don't draw large audiences.

Do you go to the theater to see a movie? Cost a lot more there.

Do you ever buy a coffee at Starbucks? Can make it for a lot less at home.

Many people spend many $s on things each of us would never do and we probably do the same. To each his own. Consumer spending helps make our world go around.

You can't price it at more than a cable package, that's silly. Of course people on a Dayton basketball message board will pay more than the average person for it. But if you want lots of eyeballs, you're going to have to be reasonable for what you charge. Now if they got creative and packaged it with access to all A10 games, then there's enough volume to start raising the price.

I guess some of you are not real Flyer fans - just kidding.

I didn't ask what the realistic price would be, rather, what would you pay?

I'd pay more. I have a monkey on my back. I need my Flyer fix twice a week during the season.

However, my price drops quickly if next year's pg is already on the roster.

Every time Butler gets another 4-star player, I think "that's a player we'd have got if we were in the BE."

The timing of their run with Stevens and the NBE forming is so surreal. From battling Wright State and Green Bay to a perennial Top 25 team, almost overnight.

I'm admittedly jealous.

On a positive note Jordan Davis visits Butler, shortly after visits Dayton and decides Butlers not worthy--the young man chose wisely.

Creighton is pretty lucky too. If Doug McDermott does't turn out to be a star they could have been looking at a 6 year NCAA tourney drought, Dad on the hot seat and possibly Big East chances in jeopardy

Creighton is a weird animal. They've made the tourney fairly consistently of late, but they've never had much success.

Worst quarter ever, q1 2017, for pay-tv providers.

Q1 2017 was 5x worse than q1 2016.



https://news.fastcompany.com/cord-cu...r-ever-4036578:


05.03.17 | 2:21 PM

Cord-cutting spikes fivefold in cable TV’s worst quarter ever

Cable's day of reckoning has come. With all the major cable and satellite companies having reported their quarterly numbers, analyst firm MoffettNathanson put together a new cord-cutting report, and things are bad. Pay-TV providers lost an estimated 762,000 pay-TV subscribers over the first three months of this year—five times more than they lost during the same period last year. To make matters worse, Q1 has historically been a strong season for pay TV.

"For the better part of 15 years, pundits have predicted that cord-cutting was the future," an apocalyptic Craig Moffett wrote. "Well, the future has arrived."

As I wrote last week, Comcast was the only major provider to buck the trend, but judging by the way things look, that winning streak won't last.

Butler's transformation goes back before Stevens. I'm also jealous. From Matta to Lichliter, to Sevens to Holtzman. They've made great coaching decisions often keeping it within the Butler program. There is not doubt the small college in Indy has made a name for itself. This year Holztman is noted to have gotten the best recruiting class ever at Butler. There is no doubt in my mind the Big East has helped. Their 2017 class is ranked as high at 11th.

Is there any thought that the Big East expands... so they can move to a 20 game conference schedule (like the P5 conferences)?

I have not heard anything specifically but I would not be surprised. It would be a great opening and I hope that we get in front of this in the case that it happens.

What more is there to say, UD has recently been valued as the most valuable program vs. BE teams by WSJ & Forbes, UD R&D $$ #3 amongst Catholic Univ (after ND & Georgetown), our geographic blue print is dead on. The below is just some benchmarks of how we compare vs BE and our "competition". Perhaps CAG can get us over the top in time for the next expansion. I think SLU is the competition.

Going to a 20 game round robin schedule would be 11 teams. That is difficult because 1 team is not playing every T/W and S/S. It becomes even more difficult with the power 5 conferences playing 20 conference games because these teams won't have open dates during conference play like they may have had in previous seasons. I think he only workable solution is 12 teams but that takes the BE away from a true round robin which, from what I hear, is very desirable for the teams in the BE.

We should only go to the Big East if Wright State comes also. That way we would play them home and home and there would be no more dispute.

Of course your right- but this is the most intriguing of off-season discussions. I find the A10 an awesome contingency plan as I think we can remain relevant there, with regular NCAAT appearances. But schools want to be affiliated with their peers, and that is not the A10 its the BE (as my chart above indicates). I think we can flourish there, get the athletes we'd need and elevate our brand beyond our current expectations. Our OOC opponents would line up to play us, our team value would remain strong, and we'd not again worry about our conference's future.

But I get that this today is a moot point, and fear not that I'll be harping on this. But you'd have to admit it would be fun to kick X's arse more than occasionally.

There is no interest from Big East member schools nor leadership for expansion. Pretty sure its going to take UConn moving their football back to FCS to change the current configuration

As other conferences expand to a 20 game schedule, the big East will only have a few options. Play low conference schools for noncon, play conferences like the A10 in the London for better RPI, or go to a 20 game conference schedule too. If they go to 20 games, they will need to expand by 1 team. So with the push for 20 games, I believe this thread may be relevant.

Correct, this was the point I was trying to make.
The BE may not need (a team like) UD now, but maybe soon.
UD may not need the Big East as the A10 is decent, but would welcome it.

BU that is never going to happen. UConn has drawn a line in the sand and they are committed to FBS football. This is nothing but a wet dream of BE fans. And have you watched UConn basketball lately? Jim Calhoun is not walking back through that door.

UConn has sunk too much money into football to ever downgrade and the chance of another realignment leaves with the chance of getting into the ACC

The other thing to consider is the Big East tourney at MSG. The ACC/B10 want to get into MSG every couple of years. Big East tourney ticket sales aren't what they were. Dayton travels and the fact Flyer fans would probably buy more than some of the current members could help

Dayton right now isn't on their radar. If Dayton keeps it's NCAA tourney streak going and ends with 9 to 10 straight years in the tourney with some a run or two it's possible things look different as Fox TV deal gets closer to expiring

From a national championship to the unemployment line, I guess that could happen to Kevin Ollie...if he misses the NCAAT this year, that will be missing the NCAAT 3 out of the last 4 years.

Back to my previous post, how do you schedule with one team (rotating) getting a night off twice per week during conference play? This would make the conference season 11 weeks long. With the week off during Christmas, the conference schedule would have to start December 10th (this season). Three games over Thanksgiving for a holiday tournament. That means 7 or 8 games in three weeks on either side of Thanksgiving and start of conference play. I suppose 1 could be played between Christmas and New Years.

Other conferences that have an even number of teams can fit 20 games in 10 weeks.

I'd love for the BE to go to 11 teams and include UD as the final team but what I'm outlining above is a real problem from a scheduling perspective.

This has and always be a painful thread until UD is part of the BE.

We have a Butler fan who monitors this board so any time we talk about getting into the Big East he can tell us the Big East has no plans to expand.

UD is a perfect institutional fit for the Big East, and in fact, is academically and athletically superior to most Big East schools. If, all other things being equal, a conference of large, national Catholic universities were to be built from scratch in the midwest/eastern part of the United States, Dayton would be a no-brainer. Unfortunately, the New Big East was formed with backroom political deals, mediocre institutions being grandfathered-in, and short-term basketball success clouding the judgement of those who put the league together. If this five year run for the Flyers had happened simply a half-decade earlier, we'd be part of the league. Instead we're stuck in a league with, at best, one or two pseudo-rivals and many institutions that have almost nothing in common with us.

If in the long-term we truly believe that a Big East invite is not coming, we need to find an alternative to the A-10. From what I can tell, these would be the best options:

1) Lobby for an invite as an all-sports (except football) member of the AAC. This may be a somewhat lateral move for basketball, but I think that it is an overall institutional upgrade and worth exploring.

2) Take the lead on forming a new conference with the best/most similar institutions from the A-10.

They can't go to 20 conference games with ten teams. So, however they expand, they will need to IF they want to go to 20.
