    Expansion Talk 2021

    I was responding to comments about ESPN needing to change their business model and needing to respond to cord-cutters - but as you correctly stated (thanks), currently ESPN+ does not have the college football content to be a substitute for their standard linear TV service. I imagine that their...

    Expansion Talk 2021

    FYI - ESPN+ streaming service was launched in 2018 and has grown rapidly. Last quarter Disney reported 13.8M subs for ESPN+. It is currently priced at 6.99/mon or $70/year. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1054451/espn-plus-subscriber-us/

    Alumni discount for 3-pack

    Well, I defer to your personal experience re: the 30%, which if it held throughout the stadium would easily explain 10-15k seats going to mutts. Still, that's disgusting. Hard to understand why so many who have already made the investment in season tics would sell what is arguably the biggest...

    Alumni discount for 3-pack

    I respect your analysis, but there's a key assumption in your logic/math that may not be 100% valid. Again, I'm not trying to argue that a significant number of Tech fans don't sell their COFH tickets to mutt fans. They probably do. However, there's no reason to assume that the die-hard mutt...

    Alumni discount for 3-pack

    Don't think we should assume that all, or even most, mutt fans at COFH in Bobby Dodd are getting their tickets from "crap" Tech fans, although I'm sure some are. It's a not-well-kept secret that many die-hard mutt fans purchase our season ticket packages, sell all but the COFH game on StubHub...

    Survey for BDS

    Agreed. Stansbury deserves praise for reaching out to fans to help determine the sweet spot for stadium improvements. The survey used concrete examples of peer-level schools that have made significant improvements in their stadiums. Frankly, we probably have some fans that want a better...

    Article Says BEST CASE Scenario Is 5-7

    Fair point, and in your example, the composite would be a better way to rank recruiting success. But there are other cases where a new coach doesn't run off a bunch of players or dip into the transfer portal much, but makes a dramatic improvement (or dramatic drop, see Fuente) in their first...

    Article Says BEST CASE Scenario Is 5-7

    To be clear, the report I linked was not from 247 - it was from a reporter on The Athletic who chose to use 247's data. I don't think he was trying to cherry-pick, but simply used one popular set of data that was available. Frankly, I agree with you that the Talent Composite is a better way...

    Article Says BEST CASE Scenario Is 5-7

    OK, this is my last slap at this horse... I'm not going to dispute anyone's data nor have I checked the article's accuracy. Also since it's behind a paywall I won't paste verbatim here. I just found it interesting and data-driven. So the basis of the ranking is recruiting improvement on a...

    Article Says BEST CASE Scenario Is 5-7

    Did you read the article? Not sure where you got your numbers, but that's not what the article's chart says. They said they used 247 composite, but I did not verify the validity of their data.

    Article Says BEST CASE Scenario Is 5-7

    For those with a subscription to The Athletic, Mack Brown is ranked #1 in the ACC in a just-released analysis of coach's recruiting skills based on improvements since arrival. Anyone care to guess who came in second...
