[split] AAC TV proposal
Here's a move that could be financially justified - NBC should go after an expanded AAC package. With Notre Dame plus expanded AAC inventory, they could better compete with ABC, CBS, and FOX, and become a major college football outlet.

Based on the key targets and who they have on future OOC schedules, NBC would likely direct the AAC to add BYU, Boise St., SDSU, and UNLV.

Look at what NBC (OTA channel) could have for a college football package in 2020:

Week 0: California at UNLV
Week 1: Notre Dame at Navy
Week 2: Arkansas at Notre Dame; Michigan St. at BYU
or North Carolina at UCF; or West Virginia at ECU; or Arizona St. at UNLV
Week 3: WMU at Notre Dame; Florida St. at Boise St.
Week 4: Indiana at UConn (or move one of the Week 2 or Week 3 games here)
Week 5: Wisconsin at Notre Dame
Week 6: Stanford at Notre Dame
Week 7: TBD AAC game (Houston at BYU, for example)
Week 8: TBD AAC game (USF at Memphis, for example)
Week 9: Duke at Notre Dame
Week 10: Clemson at Notre Dame
Week 11: TBD AAC game (Navy at Houston, for example)
Week 12: Louisville at Notre Dame
Week 13: TBD AAC games (UCF at USF; BYU at Boise St.)
Week 14: AAC Conference Championship

7 open weeks, with no Notre Dame. There is worthwhile AAC inventory for OTA college football games each open week - and an additional game to compliment Notre Dame in some weeks, including Notre Dame at Navy game, Florida St. at Boise, Michigan St. at BYU, the conference championship, the Week 0 stage, and Thanksgiving weekend.

In subsequent years, there are equally awesome games, like Oklahoma at Tulane, Texas at USF, South Carolina at ECU, Oklahoma St. at Boise St., Arizona v. BYU (in new Vegas stadium), Mississippi St. at Memphis, Nebraska at Cincinnati, more Notre Dame at Navy, Miami at Temple, Louisville at USF, etc.

NBC could get 8-9 quality games for OTA broadcast and another 25 games or so for NBCsports for not much more than NBC currently pays Notre Dame for 7 games.

The AAC could have a separate 25-game package for ESPN, mostly for Thursday, Friday, and late Saturday broadcasts (where ESPN might be willing to spend more to get quality inventory). And, of course, AAC basketball enhances both the NBC and ESPN packages.

Anyway, this is the kind of move that could legitimize the P6 claim. Most of the expanded AAC schools are similar to the lower end of the P5.

It wouldn't be bad for NBC to make that deal and for the right price I could see them bidding on the AAC contract. They already have a deal with the A-10 and Ivy League.

For the broader discussion though, this wouldn't have any impact on P5 realignment or the economics of it.

I'd be a huge fan of this. I think the key is to get full membership invites for BYU, Boise, San Diego St, and AFA/Colorado St. That gives you a coast to coast package.

It would be great if NBC could be convinced to do a package for 1 AAC game a week and a 2nd on weeks where they don't have a Notre Dame home game to air. Put the conference title game in there too.

That could actually help some schools (ECU) with Basketball OoC scheduling as well. I would love to see Richmond and VCU consistently on the schedule.

RE: [split] AAC TV proposal
Lol non-aac members starting threads on the boards and only getting only getting other g4s to answer. SMH.

We don't want any of the dying midget conference and those teams bring nothing to the AAC.

We already have plenty of inventory and relationships with NBC, CBS, ABC, and ESPN.

This thread belongs on the realignment board at best and is weak trolling at worst.


Can we move or lock this before we're overflowing with g4 please?

I dont know about picking up BYU or MW schools. Im not opposed to it, but I think it would have to be a really good monetary package to get BYU interested. I dont think the next AAC deal its going to be high enough to attract BYU.

Still, what you have outlined is what I think will happen. A 20-25 game package to NBC. A similar deal with ESPN. Then a small 10-12 game package to CBS-Sports. I think thats how you can get to 6-8 million per team while maintaing maximum visibility. The big key for a step forward in exposure is to end up with as close to one game a week on a 3-letter over the air network (ABC or NBC) as possible. Regularly appearing on those networks is a huge boost to the credibility of the AAC.

Yes, but would this be NBC (as in the NBC over the air network) or just NBC sports upper tier cable channel ?

Big difference.

The irony is that this WAS posted in the P5 section of the realignment board. P5 mods split it and moved it here, but multiple AAC fans don't want it.

Not surprising. The mods over there are a sad, sad bunch. How do you ban HuskyU? Sad!
