I did. I don't think the conference has much influence, and what little they have is spent on Duke and UNC. Do you care what day and time South Carolina and Vanderbilt play? No, and virtually no one outside their respective fan bases does either. We're in the exact same boat. Better game times won't attract more fans. Consistent winning will, and it will also result in better game times. Lol it seems pretty straightforward to me that the bball team is like half a notch above just sucking, so we are exactly where we should be. Our own fans barely want to watch, much less anybody else, and nothing the conference does is going to change that. Sucking less will.Read my post above the one you responded to. I agree that the driving factor of scheduling is TV, but that doesn’t mean that the conference has no influence in trying with the media partners to get a better product. Full arenas also makes for better tv.
