    tough schedule - more money?

    I am guessing our TV revenue share will be up some this year. Given our tough schedule, we have had a lot of national televised games. Just speculating, don't know facts, but that would be a nice boost. We have had 7 of 8 games on national TV, and with Nebby and Mizzou left, I'm guessing that will be 9 of 12.

    Not so much. FCS games get us no money, nor do Mediacom games.

    Haven't we had a couple of FCS games? Those don't make us money.

    So which games were on FCS and which were on FSN? I know the OU, KSU, and UT game were on FSN. I don't know what channel the home games were on as I was there in person. Also was at the Iowa game and can't remember that one, but I know it was NOT FCS.

    Utah and TT were FCS. iowa was ABC/ESPN2

    Last year we had
    ABC
    OSU

    FSN
    iowa
    Nebraska

    Versus
    Kansas

    FCS
    Kansas St

    NFL
    Minny

    This year we have had

    ABC/ESPN 2
    iowa

    FSN
    NIU
    Oklahoma
    Texas

    Versus
    None

    FCS
    Utah
    Texas Tech

    Mediacom
    UNI

    I would guess revenue would be up due to one extra game on FSN unstead of Versus. keep in mind the season is not over. WE could almost guarantee the Nebbie and missouri games will be on and if ISU is fighting for bowl eligibility, the CU game should be on as well.

    Got it - I was confusing FCS the TV station with FCS the football division. I'm not familiar with the rules about what counts, but why don't the FCS games count?

    So what is a FSN game worth anyway? You would think the ESPN/ABC game was a nice payday as that is about as high-profile a broadcast as you can get unless your name is Notre Dame.

    Re: tough schedule - more money?

    winning = more butts in seats
    winning = more future TV Exposure
    schedule more non conference cup cakes to boost that winning %, at least in the short run till we have the horses to compete with anyone week in and week out.
    Hopefully it won't matter, but Utah could be the difference in a bowl game this year - just think with Directional State in its place, we would be playing for bowl eligibility vs KU!

    Probably because only 1% of the nation gets that channel, so they don't make enough advertising money to pay the teams and still make a profit. That's my guess.
