    Re: Comprehensive Conference Realignment Thread

    GOOD stuff. thanks.


    Things like this are why i prefer coming here to discuss conference realignment than discussing them on the FSU boards. most people over there have no idea who is going where.

    Re: Comprehensive Conference Realignment Thread

    In the beginning (or at least in 2010), Texas wanted their own network. Their conference mates resented it, and started looking for a way out. And then ...

    Big10, Pac12, and SEC raided Big12.
    Big12 raided BigEast.
    Big10 (not to be outdone) raided ACC and BigEast.
    ACC raided BigEast.
    BigEast raided CUSA and MWC.
    CUSA raided SunBelt and WAC. MWC raided WAC.
    SunBelt raided WAC and Southland. WAC raided GreatWest and PacWest.
    Southland raided GreatWest and LoneStar.


    End results of Texas starting LHN ...

    WAC football no longer exists.
    GreatWest no longer exists at all.
    Grand Canyon U. apparently exists.
    Two other schools in Texas (ACU & IWU) will now play Division 1 football.

    But maybe that was the plan all along. You know Texas politics ...

    Re: Comprehensive Conference Realignment Thread

    For all you Big East doubters, I added the NCAA MBB Unit Distribution table above. More reason why the Big East won't die and why every C-USA school would accept a Big East invite. It also shows you why we want Memphis and Southern Miss to make runs in the NCAA tournament this year.

    They will still go, but the Big East credits will drop to current CUSA standards shortly. As in football, just because those programs are "moving up" won't translate into a difference on the field/court. In a few years CUSA and the Big East will be nearly indistinguishable. They have markets, we will regional rivalries with fans that give a crap.

    What do you think the membership of the two conferences will be?

    Today's Guess:

    Big East CUSA
    East East
    Temple Marshall
    South Florida MTSU
    East Carolina FIU
    UCF FAU
    Navy UNCC
    Umass Old Dominion
    West West
    So Miss LA Tech
    Tulsa UTEP
    Houston Rice
    SMU North Texas
    Tulane UAB
    Memphis UTSA

    Actually, after putting this together, Big East looks pretty regional too. HA! Still, I really don't think we are talking about a big difference to the average college fan between the two.
