    I would love to still play Boise from time to time.

    What effect would that have on CUSA? Are you sure it is a "thumbs up"?
    Jordan Mills on choosing Tech:
    Its a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.

    The new Big East is like the old WAC. The travel doesn't make sense especially with AQ dollars off the table.

    I think Boise would be better off back in the MWC, but I'm not so sure this is good news for CUSA. If Boise goes back then most likely San Diego St will be right behind them. At that point Big East might finally add Southern Miss & ECU

    Might Houston and SMU have second thoughts?

    Re: Boise State having second thoughts on Big East move?

    Coupled with potential exits from the Big East by Louisville & UCONN, I can see a scenario down the road where the Big East becomes the old CUSA, similar to how the MWC is pretty much the old WAC. Hope that doesn't happen, but it's possible. Heck, anything's possible when you're talking realignment.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the MWC decides to add them and bring back Boise and San Diego St and at that point UTEP will probably make the jump also

    Doubt it -

    The catholic basketball schools want OUT of the football business...

    I could see the BE ceasing to exist as a football conference before they agree to take two more SOUTHERN FOOTBALL schools -

    My guess would be upstarts Nova and UMass...

    Re: Boise State having second thoughts on Big East move?

    No need for Southern Miss or anyone else to consider the Big East. They need to stick to basketball. Any teams considering them would have second thoughts now. If Boise and SDSU come back to MWC, Big East is dead in football. Just my thoughts. No advantage to moving to that conference for any football school.

    If Boise and SDSU back out, I can see the Big East adding USM and ECU...and I think those schools would go.

    I would hope CUSA is proactive and tries to get Big East leftovers that don't end up in other conferences

    After the actions the remaining BE presidents took with the removal of Marianato - I just don't see it happening....

    I don't either Dwayne. In fact I could see Houston want back in CUSA at some point (maybe soon) if the BE starts falling apart! SMU would hold their nose, with UNT being in CUSA, and might be forced into coming back as well.

    I actually think SMU fits more "cuturally and in mindset" with the BE catholic basketball schools and they would stay the course...
