    Heard an odd rumor that Temple is the football school Wright Waters is courting - NOT the red aggies from NMST....

    UMass puts the MAC at a pretty number. Could be reaction to Sun Belt "beating its chest" about expanding. Could mean MAC commish knows Temple was leaving or he's trying to keep them still. Like qng said, it means absolutely nothing, mainly because its bottom up expansion, not the top down Tech needs.

    This move by UMass could pull Nova up to the FBS...

    It's like a peeing contest between 2 old guys. Nothing will happen, but both are trying really hard.

    The Mid-American Conference knows that the Big East will eventually expand, but it will not be toward Conference USA. The Big East will invite Villanova, but they could also pick up Temple and UMass to get to 12 members.

    The Mid-American Conference's move is to maintain stability. The conference would very much like to keep its league championship game intact and does not wish to face the near certain doom that has befallen the Western Athletic Conference. No doubt, the invitation to UMass was a preemptive move knowing that the Big East will eventually pull away MAC teams.
    Feel free to ignore the idiot (he really should be behind the curtain).

    Maybe the fact that an idiot felt they were idiotic? LFR supposedly donates a lot to the school, as a result LFR has followers here who worships him so he thinks he can say anything to anyone without being called on it. Thanks for calling him on it. I wish more would call him on his bullshit.
