The first thing I would do is contact my good friend Mike Slive, the recently retired commissioner of the SEC and have him rehearse for me the positive presentations made by Texas A and Missouri as they applied for membership. I would use those presentations as a model, because they worked. Mike could also make other suggestions that would be helpful and to which I would listen intently.
When life gets crazy and you feel overwhelmed, it’s easy to have a negative attitude about everything. Most of the time, what we are going through could be so much worse.

I certainly don think that the time difference is the only thing preventing your average American from being big into tennis. I think the presence of four major professional sports that are entirely within the US / southern Canada (MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL), plus also professional leagues in other sports (soccer, lacrosse?, sort of ultimate frisbee even) is probably the biggest thing.
