I'm pretty happy with how it all shakes out. GU should be proud what it does for the WCC - and for GU for that matter. But, I'd likely have been blacklisted in the 50s-60s for my socialistic bent (not far enough to be a commie though) :)

Looked at the numbers. Is that NCAA tourney money coming back to teams? Or total dollars (ticket sales and the like?)

Does the WCC receive a "cut" of that money too?

I think the WCC office receives a share of the NCAA tournament money as if it were the 11th team in the conference.

I'm not so sure they need $5+ million a year to staff and operate the Office of the Commissioner. Maybe it's because I haven't see the WCC Commissioner show much in the way of leadership. This year's WCC basketball schedule is for the birds IMO. Haven't seen any original ideas coming from them to improve the quality of the programs across the conference.

A few hundred grand, if employed properly, could do wonders for each of the schools: better salaries for assistant coaches, video equipment, recruiting budgets, etc.

GU is a wonderful philanthropy. Does this include espn and spectrum sports rights fees? Meetings of the conference presidents and athletic directors must be interesting.

It's two years old, but not much has changed. Zags are prominently featured.

Good stuff, Tex. My question, how do officials from other conference members even show their faces in Vegas or at the FF?
