Getting WAC'ed by ESPN

It is too familar a story that ESPN looks on your football teams game as inventory that fills holes in their schedule. Scott D. Pierce of points out that the Mountain West may find itself better off in a life that is not run by the executives in Bristol. What is the number that Disney Sports is look for on a Sunday Night game? What are they offering?

Sun., Oct. 7 New Mexico State at Boise State 8 p.m.
Sun., Oct. 14 Nevada at Boise State 8 p.m.
Sun., Oct. 21 Southern Miss at Marshall 8 p.m.
Sun., Oct. 28 Central Florida at Southern Miss 8 p.m.
Sun., Nov. 4 SMU at Houston 8 p.m.

So what the best that could be expected? A .3 share or so?

Poor BSU, theyve done far more than expected but get all the respect that any team would feel as a place filler. To be fair after the Simpsons/Family Guy on Sumday Night the picks are slim and the secong half of any college football game is better that the No Fun League's Magically Mechanical Game on NBC or watching the MLB playoffs (or whatever they have renamed it ALCS/NLCS).
