ASU AD Response

Don’t know if you guys saw the Appy AD’s response to being passed by on conference realignment. There is a lot of mention in the media markets. Here is all I have to say:

Appalachian State, Boone, NC - Population: 17,186
Louisiana Tech, Ruston (where?), LA - Population: 20,546

Was already being FBS the big difference maker here? Location perhaps? Or is it really all about the media market.

Already being FBS and winning the Sun Belt had to help. I don’t think you need NC teams in CUSA, App wouldn’t bring more value TV market wise.
