I'm beginning to favor App State over some of these. Here is why.


While I love the idea of more TV money under our AAC contract, the fact of the matter is ECU finances live and die on fan support. Not just ticket sales but concessions, etc. Then as the fan base grew so did our Pirate Club support and facilities donations. I'm beginning to also believe we will be better off financially if we can have some conference rivals within driving distance, then work like heck to start scheduling some OOC P5s. Southern Miss was a good rivalry but they didn't move the needle with a traveling fan base, nor did UAB. The future is clear, we are not headed to P5 status so lets use another business model, one that relies on butts in seats. Just my 2 cents.
