What's interesting to me is that for the New Mexico State game there will be maybe 80,000 people in the stands at kickoff, and absolutely 0% excitement before or during the game. 1/2 the crowd that does show up will leave at halftime, and it will take an OBJ missed FG type of play to get people exc...

I think the admin is completely backwards on what they are tying to accomplish.

What they don't seem to understand is the number...

That's hard to see considering Ole Miss runs a pass-heavy spread and we're definately going to lean on the run. I don't see Dupre getting 4-5 extended laterals a game like Treadwell did last year

It won't be a distinct charge on a bill, it will be rolled in to each cable providers packages just like any other ESPN channel.
