Have we ever NOT been a lame duck? First waiting to go I-A, then waiting to join C-USA, now waiting to join the Big East.

It all depends on the lawyers - if Boston College can get out of the Big East next season instead of the season after, and if the lawyers for the CUSA schools moving East can negotiate exit fees and all that other legal crapola, it could happen next year. All parties want to move on as quickly as possible, but all the conferences want to get paid and none of the schools want to pay.

Best guess here is that it'll get sorted out in time to make the football skeds

Bear in mind that it involves all conferences...

The ACC and Big East need to work out the BC issue...

The Big East and C-USA need to work out the Louisville, Cincy, and USF issues

C-USA and the MAC need to work out Marshall and UCF

C-USA and the WAC need to work out Rice, SMU, and Tulsa

WAC and the Sun Belt need to work out Utah State and New Mexico State...

If the Sun Belt says no, the rest of the chain could be broken...

I just realized something about this. One of the posts I read about the C-USA expansion was how thrilled Bannowsky is to have a football championship game. Well, they can't have it in 2004 unless they let the exiting teams leave and the new ones join. And it doesn't unduly hurt anyone else to do so.

The Big East has clearly stated that they will not invite the new teams early, but they will "consider it" if C-USA gives the okay. So hopefully their short-sightedness will be to our benefit.
